is this STEEL GREY version just painted or real like gun burnished ?
The metal is actually finished in that color, it is not paint
Does the rail mount accessory for optic sights require drilling and tapping the frame or are the screw holes already drilled?
What brand of Co2 cartridge should I use?
I have a question about the Dan Wesson 715 airguns. I know they say to put a little drop of pellgun oil on the tip of the CO2 cartridge but what about the other moving parts? And could I also use silicone oil by Crosman instead?
Since a pellet will easily fit in the rear of the DW standard cartridge, can I load them there for a little extra length on Barrel?
Will the Dan and Wesson revolver fit in small hands and if not is there any way to make it like a grip mod or something
aside from the grip is there any non metal parts ? are the hammer, front and rear sight made of plastic or metal ?
What is the most accurate pellet for this weapon? 10yd accuracy wise?
I use Crosman Destroyer 7.9 gr and I hit dime size group at 10 yards. I use a rest do accomplish this.
I've found Crosman Premieres 10.5g domes but still experimenting with slightly lighter domes.
Is the barrel threaded for a moderator?
No it does not appear so from all the close up pics, videos and reviews I've seen.
What's a quality speed loader that will work with the shells for this revolver?
It comes with a speed loader. Pyramid sells separate speed loaders also if you want extra.
Can I shoot BBs with this gun, from the older Dan Wesson shells?
The older 4.5mm versions of the Dan Wesson cartridges will fit in this gun, but you may not want to shoot steel BBs down the rifled barrel.
Is there a single action mode on this pistol>?
Yes. All four versions of the ASG DW715 revolver can be fired in either single or double action.
Does anyone know what to do with rubber pieces that are in the back of the shells because some of them fell out from the shell could you glue them in place would like to know before I do it don't want to destroy the shell.?? If not you have to keep your eyes on them help thanks
This happened to me it is like an "o" ring. Pop it back in the back. You place the pellets in the "o" ring. They work well. I don't know how long they will last and if you need to lube them with silicone oil eventually. Tom
Does anyone knows if this gun fits Hand-Tooled Leather Holster, 6", Natural, Right Hand?
do the new umarex colt SAA .177 rear loading pellet cartridges fit? I measured the cartridges:end of metal to end of metal: 1) Length: 95/60 in. ( 1,583 in or 40.21 mm.) 2) Width 21/60 in ( 0.35 in or 8.89 mm) 3) rim shoulder 2/40 in ( 0.05 in or 1.27 mm) 4) rim width 14.5/30 in ( 0.483 in or 12.27 mm) measured by eye using engineering drafting scales and a 3x lens
Does anyone have any idea of when "spare shells" will become available for this model, The Dan Wesson Pellet firing 715???
Ya right now they are on P. Air web site pack of 25
Is the claimed velocity of 430fps accurate with average 7-8 grain pellets? Or is it with those light weight pellets?
The Dan Wesson 8" version uses an earlier front-loading pellet cartridge design that does not acheive as high a velocity as modern rear-loading pellet cartridges. My Dan Wesson 8" pellet barely cracks 400fps with Crosman 7.9gr but my 715 shoots as John's does.
I just purchased this model and Chrono'd it with Benjamin 7.9 gr HP it was 420 fps and slowly declined after the first shot. But with alloy pellets it made 440 fps. The gun does produce the fps as advertised
If pellets are maxxed out at 425fps w/ the Dan Wesson 8" pellet firing version, than you would think that the 715 minus the 2 extra inches on the barrel would give you a higher m/v,, You need to go back to school!
I just received my 715 revolver. The shells are rear loading and not front loading like the other Dan Wesson pellet revolvers. What type of extra shells are recommended? A very cool looking gun.
Shells are now available from Pyramyd Air 25 @ $39.99 per set.
They do not have the extra shells available for sale at this time. The shells are unique to this gun. However, just leave the shells in the cylinder and simple reload the pellets directly. It is a very easy method!
I wish i had known that the regular "Shells" that are used in my Dan Wesson 8" pellet revolver were compatible with the 715, If I had known that I would of needed to also buy a bunch of different shells for this gun, I definitely would of passed on this model, and went with the Dan Wesson 6" pellet firing version.
Why is there only pictures of the left side of the pistol?.
The current Pyramyd listing now has six photos of the gun, including some of the right side.
Because the right side is the same?
Can you use optics directly or is an attachment eeded?
ASG Custom CNC Rail Mount (PY-A-6658) is required for optics and accessories.
I don't see the shells in the picture are they the same as the other Dan Wesson guns want to know before i buy
And as of yet, Extra Shells are not available for the 715,,,,,What a screwed up marketing scheme,,,first get the gun, then find out that the shells you've been using in your Dan Wesson pellet firing model are of no use to you, or your *NEW* Dan Wesson 715!!!, Pure B/S!!!!
No, they are not compatible with this model.
The description of this pellet-shooting gun seems to borrow too much from that of the steel BB version. ARE the pellets able to load from the rear of the shell rather than by unscrewing the front of the cartridge and inserting the pellet in the front as with the ASG?
This pellet version allows for quick and easy rear loading of cartridges meaning that cartridges do not have to be removed from the drum. (I copied this from the bottom part of the description.)
Does this take the same pellet shells as the other Dan Wesson Pellet revolver?
No. . . . .the 715 takes a rear pellet load shell that is unique to this gun. PA has sets of 25ct available now. They are identical to the factory supplied shells.
NO.. the 715 uses an altogether shell.
I tried the original shells (the type you unscrew) they performed poorly in that you lose over 100 fps. I would not use those shells!!
I JUST WENT ON THE INTERNET AND THE SHELLS ARE NOT SAME AS THE OTHER DAN WESSON REVOLVER BUT STILL DON'T KNOW IT THE SHELL ARE INTERCHAGEALBE
