By John from USA on 2016-02-26 19:36:28

Things I liked:

The look and the feel is outstanding! The smooth trigger pull in single action and double action is fantastic. There is absolutely no revolver even close to this quality in this price range. For a BB pistol it is very accurate. I was totally surprised and I own numerous Hi-end pellet and BB revolvers (ie. Umarex Smith& Wesson, Dan Wesson, etc.)

Things I would have changed:

For this price range I would not change anything!!

What others should know:

This is the best bb gun for the price. It comes with three 10 round bb magazine and they are really easy and fast to load. Use a bowl or container to catch the BB's, but just poor them on top of the magazine and they will settle in the 10 holes. Then simply run your finger over them to seat the BB's and you're read to go. I can load three magazines in less than 30 seconds. Also I chrono'd the gun on an 85' day and in a 10 shot string I got a high velocity of 480 fps a low 360. This gun totally exceeded my expectations. I also put a red dot sight on the top rail. This is a must buy for your collection.

    Things I liked:

    Excellent product. Well made, good heft, good looks, great price.

    Things I would have changed:

    A "slight" redesign; make a magazine for pellets (which are always more accurate), even if it requires gun redesign (thicker magazine, shorter center) then we could use BBs OR pellets.

    What others should know:

    For any reason, for that price you cannot go wrong :-) Strong encouragement: buy it!

    Things I would have changed:

    The cylinder While I get that the bbs only need a small cylinder, it would be nice if the whole cylinder moved instead of just this small section at the back

    What others should know:

    Things I liked:

    The looks! I dont care that its plastic it still looks TOUGH! I love the way it sits in the hand and how predictable the trigger pull becomes once its broken in. I appreciate being able to pop a red dot mil sight on it but opted instead for a simple laser. When fired BBs hit hard and fly true. This gun has forever ruined me on any other gun anywhere near its price point. In my opinion, those other guns are all playing for second.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would spend a ridiculous sum of money for an all metal Brodax with full cylinder like the revolvers from Wesson. Id easily pay three times what I paid for my standard plastic brodax

    What others should know:

    Shes light but made well! She isnt an air hog so youll easily get 80+ BBs per CO2 canister. Some guns are a gamble but not this. Be the best under $40 airgun revolver youll ever own!

    Things I liked:

    fits in hand Very comfortably, Trigger pull in SA is very short light and crisp, DA is a Longer heavier pull but not Bad at all. Can you shoot Both .177 Pellets and BBs in the Brodax YES YOU CAN!!. This is one reason I wanted this revolver. To Shoot .177 Pellets In the Brodax you Must purchase the All Metal Mag/cylinders from the Umarex Colt Python. the Plastic Mags that come with the gun ONLY shoot BBs, But the All Steel Mags shoot ONLY Pellets, but Both types of cylinder Mags can be used in the Brodax or in the Colt Python. the .177 Pellets have a slightly larger diameter so they fit the Barrels ID tighter making the Pellets more accurate out to a further distance. https://www.pyramydair.com/product/colt-rotary-pellet-magazines-fit-357-python-co2-pellet-bb-revolvers?a=7375

    Things I would have changed:

    Add a package of three of the all Metal Cylinder Mags to the package, and Get rid of the Blister packaging and Put it in a Box Like in the UK for the Tornado Version of the Brodax

    What others should know:

    Shoot Pellets or BBs out of the Brodax, get the All Metal Pellet Mags for $6.00 for a package of 3each. +shipping to be able to shoot pellets too. The Umarex Colt Python uses Both the All Metal cylinder mags and the Plastic Cylinder mags this is how the Umarex Colt Python shoots Both .177 pellets and .177 BBs

    Things I liked:

    The gun feels good in your hand. For the most part it puts BBs right where you aim. You have the occasional flyer that goes way off. But for the most part if your shot is a little off it ain't the arrow...

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. Its the best under $40 gun you'll buy.

    What others should know:

    The sights are hard for these 68 year old eyes to see. So Im adding a reflex sight. I put one on my Crosman Vigilante and its a nail driver. I expect the same with the Brodax.

    Things I liked:

    This thing is a hoot. It is not a replica so you can judge it just as a shooter. It is accurate, mounts accessories readily and has a large capacity for a revolver. You get three 10 round magazines with the pistol. The trigger pull is fairly light, but very stagey. The grip fits my hand well and the pistol has a nice heft.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing really. The pistol is inexpensive and reliable.

    What others should know:

    I never fired it using the iron sights, I instead immediately installed a small red dot. The pistol gave very good groups while sighting it in, but that was the last time I shot paper. This pistol is excellent for rolling soda cans and soup tins across the backyard. It has quickly become my go-to CO2 plinker.

    Things I liked:

    Feels pretty solid,many working parts are metal. I like the grips/co2 access,grips feel stable,and don't move around like some of the sliding grips do. Open sights were dailed in pretty good on mine. Accuracy seems very good out of the box,I was sighting in a reflex sight,from a rest at 30ft, and the first five shots were one hole and a flyer. That was with some Daisy bb's I got with my sons 70th anniversary Red Ryder. Once it is broken in it should be very good with some better quality bb's. Three mags/ammo clips in the package is a nice bonus.

    Things I would have changed:

    Being able to use the safety,while the hammer is cocked,would be nice. Not really a problem unless something unexpected happens though.

    What others should know:

    Buy one,you most likely will not regret it.

    Things I liked:

    Fires both Single Action and Double Action. Two rails for optics. Feels and looks realistic. Grip is large enough for the largest hands. Trigger pull is stout, but smooth enough. Fires inexpensive bb's. CO2 doesn't leak out overnight. I fired it a week after installing a CO2 cartridge and there was still enough CO2 to fire more than 30 shots. Accurate enough to warrant a 1.5X scope.

    Things I would have changed:

    A lighter trigger pull.

    What others should know:

    It is possible to remove and reinstall the circular "clip" that holds the bb's. But don't. Use the spring loaded plunger as the instructions call for.

    Things I liked:

    What's NOT to like? For the price I truly feel this is one of the best airguns out there whether poly or all metal. First of all there's the "WOW" factor. Every time I show this to someone that's exactly the reaction I get. Many think it's real! I mounted an Ozark Armament green laser (LOVE those!) to the underside rail and the gun looks even more intimidating. It's as accurate as guns twice the price right out of the clamshell. Extra BB discs are cheap and recommended as this gun is a Co2 miser and you'll be shooting for a good while. It's powerful and quite comfy in the hand. I rarely rave about airguns because I'm one of those ridiculously picky people who can find fault in anything but this gun, at this price, is an all out winner.

    Things I would have changed:

    Though it's cheap, I'd pay an extra few bucks for a nice box. I think she's accurate, reliable, attractive, and powerful enough to merit the upgrade from a clamshell. Maybe a pellet version for those die hard pellet fans. If you twist my arm, the only thing I can think of beyond that would be an actual revolving cylinder version that used shells like the Wesson's do. But honestly, I love mine just as is.

    What others should know:

    I accidentally left a Co2 cylinder in this gun for two days. When I realized what I'd done my heart sank. I fully expected it to be ruined. It works just as fine today as it did the day I bought it. This gun is built to last and to perform. It's a MUST HAVE in my opinion.

    Things I liked:

    I love all the revolvers so far, having purchase the Vigalante, Brodax and Python all are easy to use and are extremly accurate. A very realistic look also. Able to scare off any intruder with the first look.

    Things I would have changed:

    However the rotary clips in the Brodax and Python need some attention as to hold the bb's firm in the clip better. They will fall right out as soon as you load them. Turn the weapon upside down and your ammo just rolls right out of the barrel. You don't have this problem with the Vigalante.

    Things I liked:

    This gun shot a 2 inch group from 25 feet. Weight felt just like a real gun. Loads easy and came with 3 magizines for faster shooting.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger pull was a little stiff for me. I would like to see 2, 2 and1/2 lbs pull

    What others should know:

    For the cost I would buy another one similar to this one.
