The Fort Smith Bicentennial Peacemaker

Fort Smith is an American Frontier town--arguably THE American Frontier Town. Fort Smith has one foot in the Old South while the other is standing firmly in The Wild West. And now’s your chance to own a brand new piece of Fort Smith history: The Fort Smith Bicentennial Airgun.

The Most Modern 1911 Colt Replica

The most modern of the Umarex 1911 air guns is this version of the Colt CQBP.

It is a faithful reproduction of the .45’s aesthetics, with some notable differences in functionality.

Training with Umarex 1911s

Instead of jumping in like I normally would in a gun review, I’d like to begin this piece with the establishment of a basic premise. If you carry a 1911, you need to train with a 1911. This thought scares some away from the battle-tested single-action, but it doesn’t have to. Practice doesn’t have to be dangerous.  

The Best Faithful Recreation of the Colt Commander Length Guns
