Things I liked: The size and weight of this revolver are exactly right and the fit and finish are superior to many out there and it sits in the hand with surprising comfort. I was surprised by the power it brings, and the balance the 4" barrel gives the gun. I should state that I'm not generally a fan of revolvers as I find having to reload as often as they force you to becomes tedious but this thing has grown on me to the point where I find myself reaching for it far more often than I would have believed. I LOVE the fact that I don't have to remove a grip panel to load C02. It cleverly loads from the bottom and is held in place by a threaded cap with a concavity on the inside to hug the Co2 cylinder, and a hex shaped hole into which the allen key fits to tighten it - like many semi auto pistols out there. I also find I prefer the slight cant of the grip to the more straight up and down version you find on many of the other revolvers out there.
Things I would have changed: About the only thing I can imagine changing are the grip panels. I believe Swiss Arms would clean up if they supplied aftermarket rubberized replacement grip panels as the supplied plastic ones are a bit on the harder/sharper side. As long as I'm day dreaming, a version with a lower picatinny rail that could support a laser would be brilliant - say a metal version of the Brodax, as an example. I'd easily drop $100 for something like that.
What others should know: As I stated, I am not naturally a revolver fan and I bought this one out of curiosity more than anything. I had purchased a 2.5" Dan Wesson early on in my collection and was displeased with how sloppy it was. The hammer is needlessly thick and has a seam running right down the center. Mine actually leans to the left. The back of the gun, above the top of the plastic grip is just a big, flat spot which I find unsightly. This gun, however, is carefully thought out. The hammer is thin and, if possible, even elegant. Design details are everywhere, making it readily apparent that someone really thought about every inch of this gun. I will say that she's unforgiving. Unless you take your time and have a steady hand she won't give up a bullseye and I've learned to appreciate that tremendously. She makes you work for it and I love that. The sights adjust well enough and unlike some S&Ws the front sight is thin, not overly thick and blocky. If you want a revolver BUY THIS GUN!!!!
Things I liked: All metal construction with surprising power
Things I would have changed: Cylinder crane could be more sturdy
What others should know: A lot of realism and fun for the money
Things I liked: I like that this revolver has grips on the hammer, safety and the handle. I think that the safety is in the perfect place, instead of it being on the side of it like most guns it is on top of the grip directly below the hammer. Having it like that makes it easy to turn the safety on and off using one hand, it is perfect for a one hand shooter. This gun is very realistic looking, the shells are as heavy as the ones for my 9mm pistol and the noise is pretty loud. This is a big gun and pretty heavy, for only having a 4 inch barrel you would think that this pistol would be smaller. When you cock back the hammer it looks like there is a shell just a real revolver. The c02 tank is easy to load in the bottom, all you need to do is place it in the bottom of the handle and tighten it with the allen key that is provided, the bad thing about this is if you lose or misplace the allen key you're in trouble. The back sight is adjustable which is cool. It was shooting low for me until i adjusted it.
Things I would have changed: This gun has quite a few faults. First off is the adjustable back sights, it takes a really small screw driver which i feel should have came with the gun, to adjust for the wind takes a really small allen key which wasn't provided, i found that the tip of a writing pen will work though. This gun lacks serious power, it is only accurate up to six feet, after that the bb will actually go off course, i tried this both outside and inside and it did the same thing each time. If you're looking for a gun that has power then this isn't for you, if you're looking for a gun that just looks really real then this gun is for you. This also has something that the blow back pistols have. When you shoot out of a real revolver gas comes out of the side and this gun is designed where when you shoot the barrel pushes up which makes c02 escape out of the side of the gun. I would change that about this gun because of the lack of power that it has. I have more powerful airsoft guns then this
What others should know: Like i said before, don't buy this gun if you want a powerful gun, i was wanting a powerful gun and i ended up with a really weak one. Based on that i am giving the overall rating a 3. The looks are awesome but it sucks on power, it has no accuracy at all beyond 6 feet with a brand new c02 tank in it. So i will give that a 1. The value for the money i would say is a 2. This gun gets about 80 shoots per c02 tank so i would say that is average for the blow back system. I seriously wish i would have picked a different gun. As i said before, if you are just a collector and only care about the looks than this gun is for you, if you want a powerful gun and want great accuracy beyond 6 feet than buy a different gun.
How much of a drop in velocity would you suspect occurs by using Wesson shell cartridges?
