Host of American Airgunner TV Rossi Morreale brings excitement to a gun review of the Colt M45 Close Quarters Battle Pistol (CQBP) from Umarex USA.

Rossi demonstrates the realism of the weight and feel to the authentic blowback slide action as the pistol fires steel BBs. The attention to detail is obvious with an integrated accessory rail, metal slide and precise physical dimensions. Loading and unloading is easy with the drop-free mag, while CO2 is easily changed with the built-in quick change tool in the grip.

The Marine 1911 design inspires Morreale to take on dinosaurs, figurines and cans like a soldier taking out invaders. Watch as the blowback slide cycles just before the BBs take out the exploding bogies. In addition, as Rossi takes cover, the 19-round magazine drops, to get ready for a fresh reload.

MSRP $86.25
