    1911BB TACTICAL. It's that bad, folks.

    I bought everything to give this purchase a chance to please me; extra mags, pellgunoil, etc. The first thing you notice in the assembly is how they basically admit that the cheap plastic retaining pin will not adequately stabilize the "laser." They attempt to make up for this, possibly due to other complaints, in also supplying a screw with a locking nut.

    The "laser" is not even Dollar Store "Laser pointer" quality. It emits a beam but there are artifact dots of red scatter off to the sides, almost as bright as the "beam." The "laser" does not adjust for windage/elevation as anyone with weapons might expect. Instead, it has 3 adjustment screws (feeble, easily bent Allen wrench device included) that despite too much time wasted, do not appear to have any bearing on adjusting the beam...at ALL! Don't bother with accompanying "directions" for it either; you quickly see that the numbers in the instructions do not match those in the diagram and the only directions amount to "continue to zeroing it with the three adjustment screws." An exact quote which leads me to believe the entire page was likely printed in Chinese but then Google-translated into near English. I emailed Crosman, letting them know I was in the process of reviewing this item and they emailed back the same (mis)Directions page with no attempt to answer my question @ which adjustment screw does what.

    I don't expect I'll actually use this item after installing a few CO2 cartridges, only to have probably the first 100fps of the advertised 550fps leak out because it's not humanly possible to install it tightly enough, having to turn a very flimsy "piercing wing" at the bottom of the grip. It IS nice that it hides away somewhat in the base of this item.
    The only weight this item carries is the questionable "laser" and it's metal mounting base, complete with metal screw and nut and that of the stock BB magazine. Neither the original nor the extra magazines actually carry 20 BBs; the most one of them would carry was 18.

    Bottom line? AVOID THIS ITEM and do not be swayed by the 550fps.
    I like the fact that it's doesn't feature "blowback" action which is a waste of CO2 that is better invested sending BBs downrange. Again though, you will not see 550fps due to losing a great deal of CO2 simply installing the cartridge! I don't like the fact that you can't fit it in a pocket while you walk the dog. I know...I know. My fault. The molded plastic sites will print at 15 feet even with a rest. Cartridges allow approximately 60 shots before dribbling the BB out, not even hitting paper I'd put 8-10" below for such observation. The moment I submit this, I will begin again, my search for CO2 BB pistol, non-blowback with a decent FPS speed.

    Items like this attempt, sadly, quite successfully at times, to lure buyers with promises of high speed and ease of non-cocking, multiple shots with CO2. I think I'll be looking for quite some time. Good luck in search and thanks for reading!

    A toy with potential strong force

    By Everest

    2013-12-07 11:07:05
    As my title is written, this air gun is really a toy --- when talking about the outter look, but it is a very dangerout weapon ----when talking about internal force.

    When I purchased it, it was its speed, 550 fps, attracted me since I own 3 air pistols but none of them can go faster than 450 fps, so I want one that can at least do some powerful shooting. However, when I opened the packaged, I was shocked that I baughted a TOY...a toy that is OK to be played by child under 10 years old...very cheap body, all plastic. Well, cannot return for refund, and I do want one gun with high speed, so I told myself to endure the sad looking.......

    Put a CO2 into the gun, loaded the magazine with 19 BB, did a test shot at night, and set the gun aside until the second morning and went out to shoot some targets.
    As I said, it looks sad, all plastic as for kids, but when shooting, it performed in the speed as I wanted, Really good shooting power and accuracy.

    I shot acress a parking lot, distance may be about 40~50 feet. I used the fixed sights and all BBs were shot to the same area, no single one was out of the target area.

    Because it is not blow back, so every CO2 is used directly to push the BB through the barrel. Cannot complain too much to a gun that is only about $50 but perform this kind of high speed and strong damage power.

    What I would like Crosman to improve is to at least make a new version that is real to a real 1911 gun. Blowback or not can be considered in second place while keeping the 550 fps power as top primary target; make it able to use the hammer; and use metal supressor and make the supressor really work....the plastic supressor is only for look, not really supress the noise.

    CO2 leaks

    By Anonymous

    2013-10-21 18:25:52
    I just bought this pistol and attempted to load a CO2 cartridge in the handle. The entire charge leaked out. I inserted a second cartridge, and again a good amount of gas was wasted. This has a POOR design. The laser is set 2 inches below the barrel and is impossible to set it where the BB hits just 10 feet away. The red dot is 4 inches to the left, or 2 inches below, or 4 inches to the right. I removed the laser entirely. I get better accuracy without it. Again, the biggest problem is the escaping gas while reloading cartridge. I am very disappointed with this purchase.

    Awful

    By Joe

    2013-10-08 16:02:29
    Just bought this from Walmart for a pigeon problem. Not going to help. Not even good for plinking. Not accurate even at 10 yards (I shoot for a living, so I know it's not me.) Cheap plastic. Made poorly. Fixed sights are off (molded plastic on the gun.) The other reviewer that wrote about the removable fake suppressor was right- still has the barrel sticking out when you take it off. The first CO2 cartridge I had I didn't get to shoot with because it takes so long to screw it in and the gas just shoots out of it when you're putting it in. Absolute garbage. Hopefully I'll be able to get my money back so I can get something that actually works.

    not as good as you would think

    By sirbizzerk

    I dont believe this gun was made poorly, first of all the gun is made of light and cheap plastic, second the grip/handle is way too loose, and i mean you can take off the "suppressor" but obviously not the barrel which would only make it look ridiculous, not only that but it leaks co2.

    Tactical 1911

    By Ken M

    2013-08-03 05:51:14
    Great looking set up, with nice balance and natural feel. All molded frame with mock hammer, non adjustable sights. The detachable magazine clip is a nice feature and adds to the fun. The extended barrel with the mock silencer makes this a fun pistol to shoot since velocity is increased due to longer barrel and is a bit more accurate than other pistols which have a shorter barrel. The bottom rail is nice to add flood lights and lasers, the laser that came with the set does not fit properly so I added another aftermarket unit I had from another pistol which worked out better and also added a flood light stacked below the laser. I mounted the stock laser which came with the TAC1911 onto my MK 177 which worked out well. The safety is placed well and is easy to operate, the trigger is DA only, the magazine release is also well positioned and worked with out any issues. CO2 piercing screw is well placed to keep out of sight and out of the way. 2 or 3 magazines included would have been nice, but can be ordered separately. A better fitting laser should be included maybe even a laser and flood light stacked combo. If available in a blowback pellet version I'm sure it would sell. Overall very fun pistol and is the one used the most at this time.
