Learn more about the Dan Wesson 715 6" Pellet Revolver in Dennis Adler's Airgun Experience blog.
The classy Dan Wesson Model 715 double-action revolver is back in production. For revolver lovers, that is welcome news. This highly accurate airgun replica features all the details that you find on the real firearm. From the one-piece 6-inch heavy barrel, complete with vent rib with threading for mounting accessories, to the Hogue rubber grip. The grip shell has an ingenious integrated tool for tightening the CO2 cartridge that powers the revolver. Even the forward cylinder latch and the clockwise rotation of the cylinder have been precisely replicated from the real firearm. Dan Wesson revolvers became legendary as the preferred choice of serious revolver hunters and competition shooters because they were extremely well made and accurate; now the legend has been reborn in airguns.
Includes speed loader and 6 cartridges.

Things I liked: It looks real , weight , the sound when you shoot .
Things I would have changed: All most every 6 shoot sesion , a bb fall from the gun when shooting . I don't know if it is the shells that are not hold tight the bb's or is the gun obviosly this is a major problem so it's not worth the money I am sorry to say that it a dissapointment this gun to me .
What others should know: Try to keep it in a holster everytime because the "metal" material it scratching very offten
Things I liked: Dan Wesson and ASG have just raised the bar on bb revolvers! The engineering and integrity of this gun is simply fantastic. The rubber grips are amazing and the loading and tightening of the CO2 cartridge is simple and efficient with wrench being part of the grip. Superior sights, nice power that lasts 70 - 80 shots per CO2 and it is still winter. All of the functionality of this gun is smooth as silk, no loose parts or wobbles of any kind. I own the traditional 8" Dan Wesson silver pistol, and this gun far outshines that one, and that one used to be my favorite in both size weight feel and accuracy. With the 715 I am shooting 1.25 inch groups at 20 feet, the sights are fully adjustable and the balance and feel of this gun from the grips make it a pleasure to shoot. The trigger shoots great and single and double action, single action is a very light touch and you will be dead on with your aim if you relax and let the gun do the shooting.
Things I would have changed: Honestly, Nothing to change on this one, all of the normal minor issues or comments about the other Dan Wesson pistols have been resolved, ASG hits a home run with this gun and when they come out wither other colors and sizes I will feel compelled to get another one.
What others should know: Mine seems to shoot well with any bb's: but seems to shoot best with the Hornady black diamond steel bb's and Daisy zinc coated precision bb's. The mechanical engineering is far superior to any revolver out there on the market, this gun is a real bargain at these prices.
Things I liked: Solid full quality metal construction throughout. Only thing not metal appears to be the grip panels which are made of nice quality heavy rubber. The average velocity I measured throughout the first 50 shots slow-fire was slightly higher than the rated velocity at a temperature of 75 degrees. Accuracy on average was pretty good with most 10 yard groups of 6 shots falling into a mean average of 1.335" extreme C to C spread. I had one spectacular group of .888" with 5 of those in .377". These averages are with Hornady Black Diamond BB's. This is the only BB I have used thus far but as I try others I will include the results in the comments section. I frequently get the best groups from Umarex and Avanti ammo. Cocking back the hammer is a little stiff but both single and double-action trigger pulls are quite good. Single action is very good. All other functional movements are of good consistent and fairly smooth operation. The adjustable rear sight can be very precisely adjusted.
Things I would have changed: There was a lot of play in the hammer on its axis giving it excess side to side looseness when not cocked. I would have lived with it except after about 50 shots my pistol lost power for the hammer return and would not fire any longer. I am an airgun professional and debated whether to send this one back to Pyramyd for a replacement or fix it myself. After a little analysis of the hammer function I could determine it was a spring related failure and not a major part failure so I opened it up to see precisely what was wrong. It was as expected, the hammer spring. It was out of spec with a leg too short that was designed to fit into a recess to hold it and allow it to power the hammer forward. It was not broken in any manner, just not properly formed. I corrected the problem. While I had it open I put a small shim of .017" (seventeen-thousandths of an inch) to remove some of the hammer play. That made it perfect while still leaving enough slack to not impede its momentum when firing.
What others should know: I received this DW 715 as an exchange for the standard Dan Wesson Revolver I had purchased. I already had the Dan Wesson 715 pellet revolver and was really impressed by the quality of it and it was my first Dan Wesson product. The quality of the standard revolver I sent in for replacement, was so shockingly poor for the price point that I never bothered to fire it. I did not want to handle it much but it appeared to me that the hammer, cylinder latch (not Dan Wesson style) rear sight and trigger were plastic moulded and have a rather crude appearance. As mentioned, I did not load or charge it with CO2 but I did cock it and let the hammer down easy and the action felt in operation like a $10.00 toy. It was disgusting in its lack of quality. For just a little more money this Model 715 is in a whole different league of quality. I would never recommend the standard Dan Wesson, but the Dan Wesson Model 715 is a steal in quality construction, finish and materials.

Can I shoot .177 darts out of this gun ?
How does this gun compare with others?
Is the finish painted or is nickel like the Colt Pacemaker I have? Thanks. Marc
This Airgun (BB) version of the DW715 appears to be plated, possibly in nickel.
