By Matthew from USA on 2014-04-22 10:14:18Things I liked:First off, I actually wasn't even aware that this gun existed until I stumbled across it while searching for co2 air revolvers on Pyramyd Air. The Python is a very sturdy, hefty gun (it's virtually all-metal, and you can really feel the heft when you hold it) and, being a very well-made replica, it looks great.. I give it points just for being aesthetically pleasing. Heck, even if you buy this gun just as a prop/replica, it's worth it.. the hard red plastic/rubber tips of the rounds can even be easily removed, which leaves just the brass cartridges looking like real spent .357 shell casings. But it's not just a good-lookin' gun.. it's quite accurate, shoots hard, and just overall feels great to shoot due to the realism of the gun design. Being able to actually load .357-sized rounds into the functional cylinder, click it back into place, then fire away - I prefer single action - feels pretty sweet. I also like the recessed co2 design, as opposed to having some kind of ugly external screw knob.. and the grips are relatively nice and compact, although the hard (somewhat rubberized?) plastic can feel a bit abrasive after a while. I was actually settled on the Dan Wesson 8" revolver, but this gun just happened to catch my eye at the last minute and stole away the sale.. I mean for $99, it's a great buy! The Dan Wesson will be my next purchase.
Things I would have changed:Although I've only owned this gun for a little over a week, I haven't experienced any issues or malfunctions with it. My only relatively minor complaints: - On my particular gun, the hammer appears to lean very slightly off-center to the left (really only noticeable when cocked). However, this may simply be part of the design, as I mentioned this to an acquaintance experienced with airguns and he said that he noticed the same thing on his Python. - The grips, while reasonably compact, are not particularly comfortable (mostly noticeable after extended use).
What others should know:Revolvers are awesome.. get this gun while it's still $99 bucks! I would not be surprised if it doesn't stay that price forever, since it seems to be worth more than that. P.s... Thanks to Pyramyd Air for a great buy and great service. The gun was delivered very quickly and their customer support is very efficient and helpful. I was definitely impressed with them overall. Thanks, Pyramyd Air!

By Lawrence from USA on 2014-05-20 09:30:27Things I liked:Very realistic look and feel. Grips are solidly attached.
Things I would have changed:Very loose and sloppy fit of the cylinder onto the crane allows the cylinder to pivot on the spring loaded forcing cone and the crane to open partially as the gun is cocked. Since that's something I just couldn't get over, I returned the gun unused to insure a full refund.
What others should know:I replaced this with an Umarex S&W 586 and, even though I gave up some realism and quite a few more dollars, I'm much happier.
