3. Colt Defender 1911 CO2 Pistol
If you want to practice with the feel of the Colt 1911 without exceeding your budget, this $59.99 air pistol replica is a great place to start. The magazine contains 16 shots, and these CO2 powered BBs are propelled up to 440 feet per second after you squeeze the trigger. The weight, fixed sights and spring-powered grip release are all comparable to the Colt 1911 pistol.
This air pistol will not give you the greatest level of accuracy. However, it should work fairly well at up to 15 feet, and it offers a lot of plinking fun!
