If you enjoy shooting revolver air guns, you've probably noticed that there aren't that many of them. If you're looking for your first revolver, this would be an ideal one to get. The price is well below what you'd pay for most other models, and it'll be inexpensive to shoot because it uses steel BBs instead of lead pellets.

The S&W M&P (military & police) R8 looks & feels like the firearm it copies. If you use airguns to maintain proficiency with handguns, you'll want to get this.

Things I liked: This revolver is very authentic looking. The plastic polymer is high quality and feels solid. Though the gun is light weight it has a decent balance in hand. The double action is smmoth and it's easy to stage the trigger pull while shooting.

Things I would have changed: While the double action is smooth, the single action is quite heavy and stiff...almost unusable! Maybe this will improve as the gun breaks in. An all metal version closer in weight to the real firearm would be great. Also, the bb clip doesnt fully extract from the cylinder requiring you to pull it out with the left hand. Quite awkward.

What others should know: This is a really fun and accurate gun. Shooting double action, I was consistantly able to hit a small aspirin bottle at 30 feet! Also, on a 50 degree day I got almost 140 full-power shots per CO2 cylinder. I highly recommend this gun. Get lots of extra clips!

Things I liked: It's a real, live, honest to goodness revolver. That is enough reason to buy. Thirty years ago I spend part of a summer learning to shoot PCP. 600+ rounds a day, for a month or a liitle more, all through a wheelgun. Revolvers have a special place in my heart.

Things I would have changed: The pistol is far too light. The weight is concentrated in the handle and the pistol is light at the muzzle. While the plastic is very sturdy about another pound of gun would be appreciated. The rear sight is a "V" express sight that takes some getting used to. I'm shooting way better with it now, but it was tough going at first. The cylinder release has to be pushed gingerly when the "full moon clip" containing the BBs is loaded. The release hits the BB clip and makes opening the cylinder difficult.

What others should know: It's a real revolver. The trigger pull is classic Colt, stacking at the last little bit of pull. I prefer that system as it allows you to shoot accurately in double action. Just pull the trigger all the way through until it stacks, check your sight alignment, add a little pressure and you're there. The pull seems fairly short and not too heavy to me. If the pistol was just another pound heavier the pull would by perfect. The pistol is very quiet for a CO2 pistol. It seems to go easy on the CO2, I got about 80 shots before the BBs started hitting low. It is fairly accurate at smoothbore barrel BB range. I've been shooting at 16.5 feet and I am pleased with the results. It's been a few years since I shot a revolver extensively, so I'm still getting flyers. I'll take the blame for those. I don't have a lot of technical data to offer. This is a fun gun and well built for the price. If Umarex offered it a pound heavier and in .22 caliber with a rifled barrel I would pay double or triple the price for that gun as well.
