Things I liked:

This revolver gives you a very realistic shooting experience just like the dan wessons. I like he fiber optic sights. The trr8 is fairly accurate at 15, 20, and 25 feet. The pistol is heavy, finished nicely, and very easy on the co2.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing.

What others should know:

Be sure to get extra cartridges and speedloaders because this makes the shooting experience much more enjoyable. As always, PyramydAir provides excellent customer service, product information, and prices.

Things I liked:

The fiber optic sights are amazing. Have spent a lot more and received less. The pistol is fairly accurate for a smooth bore and with the speed loader fun to shoot. I feels like a real pistol. During the summer I got around 90 shots to a cartridge. Have fired it over 1000 times and it is still working fine.

Things I would have changed:

The only change that I would make is the way the co2 cartridge is placed in the gun. The grips will slide off the back and hard to replace. I think that should be addressed. The other thing is that this is supposed to be a replica of the Smith and Wesson TR8 which is an eight shot revolver, this is a 6 shot, The grip and the way the co2 cartridge has to be changed is the reason that I didn't rate if 5 stars otherwise the gun meets my expectations.

What others should know:

If you buy this gun, with a lot of patience you can learn how to replace the co2 cartridge ok, After that the gun is a pleasure to shoot and I would recommend it to anyone

    Things I liked:

    Adjustable rear sight, Picatinny rails (specially under), shells, fiber optics sights. Better accuracy than Dan Wesson 8".

    Things I would have changed:

    Too early to say, only 150 rds.

    What others should know:

    I installed a UTG LS268 laser, under (you need to put Loctite Blue because this laser doen't hold zero, as many lasers I know). Shooting 60 rounds from a resting position at 24-25 feet from target, using Black Diamond BB, I got the following result: 55% inside the 1.5" bullseye (aim point in the middle of bullseye), 75% made a 1.5" group and 8% was outside the 3" circle. Temperature at 78F.

    Things I liked:

    IT HAS THE LOOK XACTLY LIKE THE ORIGINAL. NICE DA, THE SA IS CRISP AND THE ACCURACY AT 30 FT IS 10 RING OFFHAND. 5-2GR SIG PELLETS AND DAISY PREMO BBS HAVE THE SAME POINT OF IMPACT. NO LOOSE RAIL, NO RECOIL ITS ALL I WANTED FOR THE YARD. THAT BOX IS PRETTY NICE AND THE MANUALS COVER IS A DUPLICATE OF THE ORIGINAL/ GREAT FIBER OPTICS OUTDOORS, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET ONE,

    Things I would have changed:

    NOTHING BUT THE GRIPS ARE SO SO. THE SPEED LOADER YOU SHOULD BE USING WITH THIS GUN IS A #10 K FRAME HKS. THE HAMMER TANG IS A LOT WIDER THAN THE ORIGINAL

    What others should know:

    I POLISHED THE SPRING DRIVEN PLUNGER WITH A DREMEL AND FLITZ. ITS WHAT WOULD NORMALY BE CALLED., THE FORCING CONE, THE GUN WAS PRETTY DRY OUT OF THE BOX SO I PUT A DROP OF PELLGUN LUBE ON THE HAND { THE PIECE THAT ROTATES THE CYL AND A DROP ON THE LOCKING BOLT, TOOK AN OILY WRAG AND WIPED THE FORCING CONE AND THE CARTRIDGE HOLES ON THE BULLET END OF THE CYL THE DA SMOOTHED UP NICELY, I PUT A GREEN HOLOGRAPHIC SIGHT ON JUST BECAUSE I DONT SEE WELL ANYMORE, I RETIRED FROM S&W AFTER 20 YRS AND IM TELLING YOU IVE SEEN A MILLION PLUS S& WS AND SHOT THE CHEVY TRUCK TEAM CHALLENGE FOR 10YRS SO IM NOT JUST BLOWING SMOKE, ITS A GREAT PRICE AND A LOT OF GUN FOR $ 90. GET THE 10 FOR 10 AND DISREGARD THE NEG REVIEWS. I COULDNT BE MORE PLEASED AND IM A PICKY OLD GUY, I WOULD BE CAREFULL OPENING AND CLOSING THE CYL, QUICKEST WAY TO RUIN THIS GUN AND ANY REV IS SWINGING THE CYL IN AND OUT BY USING YOUR WRIST, IT MAY LOOK COOL TO YOUR FRIENDS BUT IM SURE IT WILL GO OUT OF TIME,

    Things I liked:

    Built-in Picatinny rail for optics, excellent palm swell in the grip, similar to Hogue/Packmayr. Trigger action does improve in about 200 shots or so. I ended up mounting an inexpensive reflex sight above & red laser sight below as a balance, ups the weight but also increases looks & stability. Accuracy surprising for a smoothbore, am looking forward to summertime action shooting with it though the Safariland speed holster is almost 200 bucks(ouch)

    Things I would have changed:

    Had to do some grip/frame mods to get the speedloaders to work properly, nothing other than that.

    What others should know:

    Definitely attracts attention from airgunners & pistol shooters alike, a great match to the Colt Python. Just don't confuse the brass shells as they are NOT compatible

    Rating 4.04.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    I just came back from shooting the TRR8 revolver I like the feel and the way it shoots seems to be accurate. The speed loader works efficiently. It seems to be easy on Co2.

    Things I would have changed:

    The grips have a tendency to slip off the tracks but are easy to put back on. Other than that no problems.

    What others should know:

    When you load the shells with BB's make sure to check to make sure there in the shells far enough or they will fall out. Simple push BB's in with fingers until you here a lite click ,they are then locked in.

    Rating 5.05.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Solid feel, speedloader, accuracy, and ability to accept accessories as desired. I tried a few different scopes/sights and am running it with the stock sights. At 10' I got a 3/4" group with one flyer that increased it to 1 1/2".

    Things I would have changed:

    8 shots like the real pistol would be nice, but then you'd lose the compatability with the Dan Wessons. Increase radius of grooves in the grip, top groove gets a bit uncomfortable with prolonged use due to pressure on my knuckle. The way the barrel is made, the pistol is about an inch longer than it should be. But then you'd lose velocity and accuracy, so it's a good compromise.

    What others should know:

    The speedloader takes some getting used to as there are some clearance issues due to a small tab sticking out and the thickness of the grip.

    Things I liked:

    Gives a realistic shooting experience. Very nice trigger pull both in single action and double action. Giving it four stars only due to the hand grip.

    Things I would have changed:

    The hand grip can easily slip off the track when changing CO2. This could be improved upon.

    What others should know:

    As in all CO2 guns, it may not fire when the temp is over 80 degrees.

    Things I liked:

    This is the same action as the Dan Wesson with a different, barrel. I like this one much better than the Dan Wesson. I think it ballances nicer, the fiber optics are nice and it's amazingly accurate for a bb gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only complaint that I can think of is that the handle could be snugger. It's not a deal breaker tho.

    What others should know:

    It is less expensive than the Dan Wesson and it is nicer.
