    Things I liked:

    Just an absolutely beautiful gun. As I've never handled the real version I can't compare the weight. But this gun has some serious heft, clearly. Trigger and hammer work nicely and are good and snappy. This gun is just so much fun to hold and admire. I've shot about 50 rounds through it and it has the usual backyard plinker accuracy. Maybe a bit better because of the longer barrel. The CO2 installs nicely and without any leaks. Not even a slight hiss when piercing.

    Things I would have changed:

    The plastic grips are a bit thin and are concerned they may crack over time. I would have liked the grip to have been of better quality. I'm not a fan of the high gloss bluing...high gloss anything for that matter. I believe this piece would have been better served with either a matt or weathered finish.

    What others should know:

    Gun is absolutely beautiful and is going to be an instant hit for sure. The only issue I have is that it's tough to hold comfortably because of its sheer size. But that's the gun! Trust me, you will not ever regret this purchase.

    Things I liked:

    Fantastic replica. This is a very large heavy revolver and very close to the real S&W Model 29. The sights and trigger are excellent. It reminds me of firing the real one but without the recoil. The bluing is very well done high gloss blue. The rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation. It is packaged in a nice sturdy cardboard box. The revolver has 6 cartridges suitable for BB's but I found that Colt SAA pellet cartridges will fit and function well with pellets, although the bore is smooth. Surprisingly, the inner barrel is only 6 inches long surrounded by the 8-3/8 inch outer shroud. I have fired it with steel, lead and frangible BB's, lead pellets and non-lead pellets. The heavier lead pellets and BB's naturally shoot low. For pellets, the 5.5 grain non-lead pellets seem to work fine.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make a pellet firing version with rifled barrel.

    What others should know:

    Buy one...it feels like the real thing.

    Things I liked:

    Excellent version of an actual firearm, in the same class as the excellent DanWesson 715. Best bluing yet on a replica airgun. Has the look and heft of an actual revolver. Action was smooth and light in both da and sa, and in that respect was superior to the 6 inch barrel Dan Wesson. Presented in nice box as well

    Things I would have changed:

    I would have preferred the 6 1/2 barrel length and a rifled pellet barrel. Would include an extra six shells for those who don't have Peacemakers

    What others should know:

    With the elevation set to highest setting hits low by 1 1/2 inches with six o clock hold. Need to use slightly high center hold

    Things I liked:

    I now own two Model 29s. One was made by Smith & Wesson, the other by Umarex. Comparing the two side by side is amazing. The Umarex's attention to detail, right down to the pinned barrel, is incredible and the blued finish is beautiful. The cylinder seemed wobbly at first but pulling the trigger or cocking the hammer pops up the cylinder stop and locks it up tight for the shot. Accuracy is surprisingly good, considering that it is a smoothbore. The cartridges are the same as for the Umarex Colt SAA so I tried the pellet cartridges from my Colt with Crosman 7.9 grain domed hollow points. Just shooting off hand, accuracy with BBs or pellets is definitely minute-of-beer can good out to 45-50 feet. Maybe not quite as good as the Colt with it's rifled barrel but still good enough to be fun. The pellets did seem to be a little more accurate than BBs. The single action trigger is very smooth. Double action trigger pull is acceptable with a clean, predictable break.

    Things I would have changed:

    Given the overall high quality of this revolver, it's good trigger and especially it's adjustable target sights, it really deserves a rifled barrel. C'mon Umarex.

    What others should know:

    Even if you don't harbor any secret Untidy Hairy fantasies, this a great BB gun!
