Things I liked:The single action operation of this pistol is exactly like a standard S&W revolver. Being a springer, the double action operation does not include the hammer. Still, the trigger, hammer, and shell extraction are spot on and a great, inexpensive way for me to train and practice in lieu of using my WWII S&W Victory model revolver (the real deal). Things I would have changed:Slight bevel/radius on the forend of the cylinder to ease the cylinder rotation. It does break in and ease up after a couple hundred rounds, though. Some strategically applied drops of lube help, too. What others should know:Good to go for one-handed operation after a couple hundred rounds. Extra shells make for a great way to practice reloading.
Things I liked:These are fun, particularly when hit with the 120 lumens from my SureFire LED flashlight beforehand. Practical? No. Fun? Yes! You don't see too much in flight, but they do make locating strays much easier. ;-) What others should know:These are consistent in shape and the surfaces are smooth / free of any mold seams, etc.
