Don't waste your time and money scouring pawnshops and the Web looking for obscure, costly antique firearms! With this ultrarealistic airgun from Gletcher, you can experience the look, feel and fun of the legendary CLT 1911 handgun at a fraction of the cost with no extensive searching or legal paperwork required! An iconic American firearm, the original CLT 1911 was one of the most popular standard-issue sidearms for US Armed Forces during the Second World War. Simple, familiar and always reliable, it remains a favorite for collectors and handgun enthusiasts to this day. Hold Gletcher's reproduction just once, and it's easy to see why. The celebrated airgun experts overlooked no detail when it came to building the CLT 1911. With its tough metal alloy construction and a weight nearly identical to the original, this premium air pistol not only looks exactly like its bullet-firing counterpart - it painstakingly duplicates the feel, as well. Even the shooting experience is virtually the same, thanks to Gletcher's advanced "blowback" system, which simulates the original weapon’s distinct visceral feedback via realistic recoil movement. The CLT 1911 airgun shoots only .177 caliber steel BBs and is powered by a 12g CO2 cartridge (both sold separately). It's equipped with a single action trigger mechanism, meaning it must be cocked before the first shot. During the second and subsequent rounds, the cocking and reloading cycle occurs automatically when the slide moves back via the blowback feature. Whether you're a collector, like to hone your aim with target practice or just enjoy shooting for fun, don't settle for anything less than a Gletcher airgun!
