Does this ship to canada and get over the border okay? Can anyone who's ordered one in canada verify?
Pyramyd says it can ship to Canada, so you'll be fine.
This is not a question but it is a statement...As in the description it states that Dan Wesson shells are compatible, which is ABSOLUTELY INCORRECT!!! JUST BECAUSE IT FITS IN THE HOLE DOESN'T MEAN IT'S COMPATIBLE!!! MY CAR KEYS FIT IN A SEWER GRATE BUT DOES THAT MEAN THEY ARE COMPATIBLE??? NO!!! As it's not recommended to drop your keys into a sewer grate, also do not use Dan Wesson shells in your Colt Python!!! The Colt shells are bigger than the Dan Wesson and this allows for gaps in the CO2 delivery system which could cause damage to the seals....Whoever stated that doesn't have a clue what they are talking about. This gun has a self contained CO2 system which means you can't just replace the mag to fix it, you need to replace the gun to fix it. Just my two cents...and I own a lot of air guns as a collector and enthusiast, far too many to list here.
Why would seals get damaged if one uses smaller shells in the revolver?
Can you shoot pellets?
I can shoot pellets, yes, but I need to use a scope because they are really small!! HAHAHAHA... and, not with this gun, it's a 4.5mm bb shooter!!!
Can you use plastic bbs instead of metal ones?
No, it's .177 cal so it can only use metal BBs.
Is there a bulk pack of shells available for this revolver?
Currently there is no bulk pack of shells available. I'm certain that Umarex will have them available soon. I don't recommend using Dan Wesson shells because they are smaller and could potentially cause damage to seals with all the CO2 escaping from the gaps. Just wait it out like myself and be happy that your gun works fantastic. After all, it only takes a couple seconds of your life to reload 6 bbs.
You can use Dan Wesson ones, but they are a little shorter and you will loose some velocity if you do.
Is the barrel shroud plastic or metal? How's the balance?
The entire gun is metal except for the grips and feels quite substantial in the hand. The balance is fantastic! It's heavy all around and when holding the pistol aiming at a target it doesn't feel muzzle heavy at all so I would say balance is fantastic.
It's metal, feels good and heavy in your hand
