I went and bought a BB Pistol ( Remington RAC 1911 ) everything is to scale to the Govt model even the slide blows back when fired , fun pistol and I can shoot it in my house or back yard . Better then nothing for trigger time , anyone out there into BB or Pellet?

Heh, heh ...

I have three "1911" BB guns (one shoots steel BBs only, one shoots lead BBs -- hard to find, and one only shoots pellets). I have to be discreet about shooting them in my yard, because my town has an anti-gun ordinance that actually prohibits discharging a BB gun anywhere in town, and I have some uber-liberal neighbors.

One of mine is the same as the one in this review: https://ezine.m1911.org//showthread....arex-Commander

I wonder if the "Colt" is the same gun as your "Remington" under the name badges.

That Sig ASP Super Target looks interesting. Would you care to review that one?

Ask and ye shall receive.

So far mine has been great fun. The trigger breaks a bit too far back and could be a bit crisper but really this is a fun, fairly accurate air pistol. The key to this gun is mindset. If you go into it looking for a entry level 10m target pistol, you will be disappointed. If you go into it looking for a very accurate SSP to have FUN with that does a decent job as a firearms understudy then I think you will be thrilled.

QC may be an issue as another member over there had one that went T/U on him. Mine has been great however.

Where did you purchase your HW air pistols? I don't see them at Pyramid.

Mostly Airguns of Arizona over the years. My HW75 and HW40 MAY have come from Pyramyd back in the day.
