I was just at pacific mall today, and I stumbled upon 2 airgun/airsoft stores. One is facing kennedy road on the first floor, and is selling the Tanfoglio witness 1911 for $280. The second one is upstairs in the same corner as the food court, and they are selling the Tanfoglio witness 1911 for $190.

Edit: The second store has no more in stock. I arrived just as this guy was buying the last 2.

:shock: :shock: 280 for the TW 1911!?!?! That's almost double the price of our forum store! Sure you don't need to have it shipped but still 280$ for a BB pistol seems like a LOT of money doesn't it?

Tell me about it! I was shocked too. I guess they are trying to make a profit. I saw my smith and wesson M&P airgun there for 98 dollars (got mine for 50). They also do paintball guns.

What are everybodys' thoughts on buying from pacific mall? Surely, they have the same supplier, so the guns must be of the same quality.......right?

TW 1911 for $50? The metal blowback version? 320FPS/ 8.6 overall inches /4.38inches barrel length? wow...Looks like we need a princess auto in Toronto!

@aztek.ajn: I almost fell on the ground when I saw their prices; however, I walked inside and there were a lot of customers! One guy was looking at an airgun with his finger on the trigger while trying to pull the slide back. I presume it's unloaded, but I left the store anyways. I didn't want to get shot, lol.

Yup. This one... http://www.princessauto.com/pal/product ... Co2-Pistol

Notice they are sold out now though. I should have bought the whole skid full while I was there last time.

The package they had on display in the store was the wooden grip model. That's all I'm going by. Never seen or held one as I have no interest in them. Just passing on a possible lead.

If it is the Blowback model it's the best deal I've ever seen!
The only info given on PrincessAuto is the weight at 1.66lbs, PyramydAir lists the all plastic at 1.4lbs and the blowback at 1.98lbs so not much help there... if it's the blowback I'll take 1 or 2 (or 3). Anyone going by a Princess Auto store?

I believe it's the non blowback version that is $50. I've seen a TW 1911 for around $60 here at a hobby shop, but I'm pretty sure it's the nonblowback version, and the trigger is different too. The blowback has that cresent moon shaped trigger and the non blowback has a regular style trigger.

No I didn't get the numbers of both the stores :( The store on the first level had 3 employees inside (nice guys. Really friendly!). The store on the top level was ran by one chinese guy in a really cramped store. :o
