  • Dan Wesson pellet revolver
  • 12-gram CO2 cartridge
  • 6rd pellet cylinder
  • Rifled barrel
  • Fixed front sight
  • Adjustable rear sight
  • Textured grips
  • Double- and single-action
  • Manual safety*
  • Working ejector rod
  • Black metal frame, black plastic grips
  • Includes detachable Weaver rail, speedloader and 6 shells**

*If the gun is cocked, the manual safety will not engage. For the safety to engage, the gun must be uncocked. If you cock the gun and then try to engage the safety, you will still be able to pull the trigger...and the gun will shoot the projectile!

**Each shell should be loaded with one pellet and then loaded into the gun's cylinder.

Dan Wesson CO2 revolvers are very realistic, and that's a big part of the reason they're so popular.

The swing-out cylinder holds 6 shells. Load one pellet into each shell. The included speedloader adds to the realism and makes it a snap to load 6 cartridges at a time. When it's time to reload, push out the spent shells with the ejector rod. A detachable Weaver rail lets you mount optics. Putting a dot sight on your Dan Wesson pellet revolver just might give you a noticeable increase in accuracy!

These revolvers are fun to shoot, but they also have a very practical purpose -- maintaining firearm proficiency. If you can't get to the range or you can't find loaded ammo for your Dan Wesson firearm, then this pellet gun is the next best thing.

You can practice everything from loading to using the speedloader to aiming, trigger control, shooting double-action, shooting single-action and holster draws. So, if you need some persuasive ammo to convince your spouse that you need to get this gun, feel free to use any of the foregoing!

Things I liked: The heft and feel are amazingly like the firearm. I can shoot all day without breaking the bank.

Things I would have changed: Personally I like it just the way it is.

What others should know: Invest in the extra shells. Load them up and blast away!

Things I liked: Functions; load, unload, safety, etc are almost identical to the actual firearm. After putting 1,200 plus pellets down range this revolver consistently gets 90 good shots to a single 12.5gr CO2 cylinder. Gun is well balanced and responds well to single handed shooting. Like any hand gun, the repeatability of accuracy is wholly dependent upon the shooter. Using a two handed combat stance it is very accurate out to about 20 yds. Installed a NcStar DAB 25, looks good and groups at 10 yds are less than 0.6 inches.

Things I would have changed: Swap out the plastic grips for a more rubber like material, it would make the "hold" more tactile. The optional weaver/picatinny rail leave a little to be desired. The gun has very good fit and finish however a little more thought into the rail measurements on the adapter would be very nice. Why not machine/cast it into the barrel shroud

What others should know: The cylinder lock pin has an almost square edge to it which if not cleaned up a little with a jewellers / rifling file it will quickly cut a nasty groove into the frame of the gun. Do NOT over file, just gently dress off the sharpness of the end of the pin. There is a seal at the face of the frame where the back of the shells contact when in the fire position. Put a drop of CO2 gun oil on the seal to keep it supple. The barrel is spring loaded back against the front of the shells. It will move when doing a "pull through" of the barrel, just ensure it returns fully before firing. While not massively heavy as CO2 repeaters go, young shooters should use a two-handed hold until they have adaquate hand and wrist strength to properly hold and stabalize the weapon. Oh Yeah, buy Lots of pellets and a couple of boxes of spare pellet shells...yeah and some CO2. This is a fun handgun.
