Is shooting BBs in rifled barrel a great idea?
A great idea....probably not, but can you do it, yes
Can use load pellets in the BB magazines?
Much plastic, but does not seem to affect performance. Metal in rifled barrel & lockwork. Metal where metal needs to be. Relax, it's inexpensive.
Is this revolver made of metal or plastic?
Plastic (at that price!)
Does it have a metal frame?
Is this the new, replica type made of metal?
Much plastic, metal where metal needs to be.
what weight pellet do you, or is, recommended for this pistol?
7-8 grains is going to be best
How many shots per cartridge at room temperature?
Are there likely to be any issues with using pointed pellets? Specifically, are any pellets, particularly lead-free pellets, likely to be on a 'do not use' list in these rotary magazines? Some pellets will not work with some guns due to the length of the pellet. A useful specification that Pyramid Air could provide would be the maximum length pellet recommended for use with semi-auto airguns with removable magazines.
What parts of this revolver, if any, are metal?
Arrived in a nice printed box! Much more of a value for collecting purposes. Does anyone know if the 6inch model is now boxed or still shipping in the insulting blister pack?
The rifled 6 inch BB/Pellet version comes in a box, like what you got with yours only shows a picture of an 8inch instead. No bubble pack with rifled versions, box instead.
What is the overall length of this revolver?
Under specifications it states 8 inches.
