Training 1911

Recommended Posts

Price under 350.00

No Model Preference.  But needs to be full size 1911.

Most realistic GBB action possible. (Needs to have a little kick to it.)

Preferably all metal but not a absolute must.

Green Gas

Looking for a training 1911 to do drills with at home.  Pulls and multiple shots from holster.  Mag drops with quick reloads.


Thank you for any advice you can give.

Get a KWA PTP 1911.  They are certified for this...


DO NOT put oil in the mag.  This is detrimental to KWA seals and the industry is too dumb to realize this.

Dry propane is all you need and regular gun grease for the rails.

I am a little new at this.  Are you saying not to use the Green Gas and use straight propane?  If so where would you get the propane canisters and/or adapter that would fit the mags?


Also which KWA PTP 1911 there are different MK IV, MK II, A1?

Correct.  Green Gas is bottled with no standards at all, much like the majority of the industry.  I worked with some of the USA bottlers and they just let the "crap" flush into the GG tanks. 

We have found solvent, water, rust particles and improper levels of silicone oil in various GG gases.  

You can get the Propane Canisters any where there they sell Propane, hardware stores, Lowes, Target, Walmart, many places.  It's not that hard to find. 

They are sold under common names like Bernzomatic, Coleman, Worthington....etc.

Adapters are sold on airsoft sites or ebay.

Plus when temps get cooler, run a higher pressure organics, Propene.  When it gets hot, run R152 duster gas to keep the operating pressure around 115psi.

DO NOT put any silicone oil in the gas.  If anyone tells you to do this...they are ignorant of the facts of oil in the gas.  Back in the 1990's sure...but not in modern Airsoft.  

As to which one...that is Up To You.  You asked for a 1911...get the "1911" the closest to matching what you want to replicate.  Got a Classic 1911...get the 1911A1, more modernized in the MKII, get the MKII...etc.
