The new UHC 1911 airsoft pistol was released in 2004 and since then has proven to be the most reliable spring pistol UHC currently makes.
UHC is known for making great performing airsoft guns and the 1911 is no exception.
UHC 1911 is surprisingly accurate and has impressive range, perfect not only for target practice but also as a reliable side-arm out on the field.
The UHC 1911 airsoft pistol authentically replicates the real M1911, semi-automatic pistol designed by John M. Browning back in 1911, firearm which was the standard-issue side arm for the United States armed forces from then to 1985.
The M1911 is still carried by some U.S. forces. It was widely used in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.
Its formal designation as of 1940 was Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911 for the original Model of 1911 or Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911A1 for the M1911A1, adopted in 1924. The designation changed to Pistol, Caliber .45, Automatic, M1911A1 in the Vietnam era.
In total, the United States procured around 2.7 million M1911 and M1911A1 pistols in military contracts during its service life.
The M1911 is also used by 28 other nations.
Back to the airsoft version of the 1911 from UHC:
The gun is very realistic, especially when it comes to it’s weight.
Peter from East Windsor, NJ, who owns several airsoft guns of various styles and types (springers, GBBs, AEGs, etc), thinks the UHC 1911 is by far, one of the finest pistols in his arsenal:
The M1911 has become one of my favorite guns. I am considering a M1911 real steel pistol as well and if it is anywhere near as nice as this airsoft gun, I will definitely add it to my collection. This is a heck of a gun for $20. It would be a bargain at double that.
