Good lesson in "read the reviews". There's a reason this pistol got mostly 5 stars: realistic - hard to tell from the real thing, powerful. accurate, a really fun gun to shoot, well made. feels good in the hand(s). Very well thought out in terms of feel, loading, accepting both pellets and BB's and rifled barrel. A steal at the price.
ProsAll of the above
ConsA bit lighter than the real thing due to plastic and metal combo, but still plenty heavy to be an enjoyable quality.
Best UsesAll BB and pellet pistol uses.

Great Design adn handling.I Love UMAREX products.
Great Design, But beware of air leak and power fail. after 1 year I had this problem eating up Co2 capsules and not getting maximum use. Beware of 1-year warranty by UMAREX. The cost of refurbishing, versus buying NIB airguns. is a hassle so YT comes to my rescue again. as I am not a Professional Gunsmith. I do not want to have useless Air guns in my inventory or tear them apart or can't get parts. Tho I do tear them down after warranty to clean them and hopp them up.
But ! an Easy fix. For all air guns Airsoft and a prevention for NIB Air Guns too.
Think Lithium grease and hair dryer to seal vale seal eternal and at the Co2 capsule valve piercing area.
Fixies all my problems out of warranty guns even if they are 5 years old Stops eternal Un Audible leaks and fixes any power performance problems.
ProsHandling and replacing Co2 capsules.
ConsMagazine Design. But I like em Keeps cost down. If you want authenticity by a Dan Wesson for lifelike Ammo cartridges.
Best UsesPractice, plinking, will; take out small,( Chipmunk) Varmints.

Great little pellet pistol. Haven't used BB's so can't say about that. It looks real so don't let a kid get a hold of it without supervision.
Best UsesClose range plinking/target practice.

Fun pistol to have and shoot.
Shoots nice and feels real in your hand.
ProsNot to loud and comes with 2 each pellet and BB mags.
ConsNeed to be careful when purchasing pellets. Some of the higher end alloy pellets encased in plastic are to long to allow the mag to turn while in the gun.
Best UsesBack yard plinking.

Neat Featured Pistol
I have this one and the Crosman all metal SNR. Both are nice. This Colt is lighter but still feels very good in your hand. It has a really smooth trigger, with a light pull that does not affect your aim. Adjustable rear sight was off just a bit out of the box. I did put a drop of white paint on the front sight. I really like the magazine. Slides in the pistol easily. I learned early on you can seat the pellets or just press them in. If you just insert them it's a good idea to hold the barrel on a down angle when you slide the mag into the pistol. Once the mag is in, the pellets will not fall out. I tried several brands of pellets and they all fit loose. I settled on RWS Basics. The gun is pretty accurate at 15-20 feet.
ProsTrigger, feel in your hand, good on CO2, accuracy, 10 shots per, dual ammo (I didn't try BBs), good price, worth the money.
ConsNone really, just don't expect a $300 pistol.
Best UsesIt's a plinker, good for dinging cans and paper.

It's a good pistol
I like this pistol quite a bit. Fun and easy to use.
ProsI like the versatility in being able to use BB's or pellets.
It's easy to use and comfortable in the hand.
Very easy to load the CO2. The integrated wrench for the CO2 is a great idea.
The safety is well positioned for ease of use.
The included 2 magazines each for BB's and pellets is great.
ConsThe BB and pellet retention of the magazines is not great. If you're not careful they fall out all over the ground/floor.
It's a little louder than I expected, but it's also a pretty short barrel.

this is a real nice and lightweight revolver with a very comfortable grip. seems to be of very decent quality. fun to shoot but maybe a little loud for back yard plinking. love the placement of the safety!

Great fit and feel.
Feels great and has an awsome trigger. Something that's hard to find in air pistols. You can rapid fire and stay on target . The single action trigger is so smooth and crisp. Very fun to shoot.
ProsGreat trigger. Authentic looking. Hits pretty hard depending on pellets used. Has a nice safety built into the frame just below the hammer.
ConsPellets fall out of the round mag/cylinder.
Almost all plastic construction. Co2 piercing screw hex which is attached to the plastic side grip may fail with repeated use. Recommend a separate hex key for this.

I have purchased multiple airguns and associated products from Airgun Depot and have never been disappointed with products/service. This Colt snubbie is a pleasure to shoot with BB's or pellets and is quite accurate,probably because of the rifled barrel. At this price,it's a steal.
ProsPistol comes with 2 magazines each for BB's and pellets, rifled barrel and very realistic appearance . ( I have the real thing.) *** Clever idea.....the wrench to tighten the CO2 cartridge is fixed inside the handgrip so it's always handy.***
ConsIt's not free. That's all I can think of.

Accurate at 10 to 20 ft. Bought 2 and gave one away as a gift for a friend learn to shoot. Buy extra magazines, I prefer pellet. Feels good in hand. I like it!
ProsJust get one!
ConsPrefer pellet, just me.

The look and feel of this replica is outstanding especially for the price. It is accurate from 15 to 20 feet. Small furry animals have nothing to fear from me. I don't shoot critters. However, they should be wary of my cat FLASH. He is a fierce predator towards squirrels and birds but totally friendly to people.
ProsRealistic, accurate, outstanding bang for the buck, quiet (won't wake the neighbors), great fun plinking at setup targets.

Great pistol, but lousy magazine!
I ordered two of these, and they shoot really well. We have problems here because of squirrels, and these are quite accurate out to about 70 feet which is great with such a short barrel. Further, It has been about two weeks since I first put in a CO2 cartridge, and used one yesterday. It is still holding the charge quite well, and there is one less squirrel to try to get in my attic this winter. The only air pistol I have ever had that held a charge so well before was a Russian Anics Skiff A-3000. The only downside is the magazine. I bought extras to have them pre-loaded and ready, but what a waste! If you turn them over after loading then all of the pellets fall out even if you press them in firmly. However the BB magazines do hold the BBs well.
ProsVery Accurate. Holds gas well. Rides easily and securely in the front pocket of my jeans. BB magazines work well to hold the BBs.
ConsThe pellet magazines are too loose, and the pellets fall out if they are turned over.

This thing seems to love the H&N Alloy pellets that are about 6 grains. Incredibly accurate for the snub nose with these.
Prosfeel, look, functionality

This is a replica model of the Colt Python that actually has a rifled barrel and shoots pellets quite well. I was surprised of the accuracy for a 2.5" barrel. The magazines are easy to load. Same BB magazines as the Umarex Brodax. The gun is very light due to the majority of the being made of plastic. Totally worth adding to the collection!
ProsIt actually comes in a nice box, it is very accurate and gets approximately 70 good shots per Co2. The price point is not too bad at $50.00
ConsThe gun is made mostly of plastic but not a deal breaker

I have several Air Pitols . This is acully one of my favorites. Most impressive is the exact fit of the parts. The hammer ,trigger and rotating revolver clip all are a tight fit. With a crisp trigger pull. Some of my other revolvers work ok - but the parts -the cylinder are not a tight fit. It comes with extra cylinder clips and holds 10 bb's or 10 pellets each. Very easy to load! The rifled short barrel is very accurate.although the main body of the gun is plastic -it looks very realistic.Trigger and hammer are metal. Very easy on co2 also. Out of the 15 + air guns in my collection, this is the"Biggest Bang For The Buck".
ProsEasy to load. Tight working parts. Accurate,and easy on Co2. Light weight.For the price a very good revolver!

Fantastic shooter for the price. Pellets are perfect for the gun. I think I will toss the BB mags.Why destroy the rifling in the barrel with steel BB's. I tried using coated lead bb's but some of them fell out of the barrel.
ProsAccurate, inexpensive and fun to shoot.

Looks like the real deal!
This pistol looks real. The proportions are spot on. I don't like the looks of the revolvers with the extended area behind the cylinder. Shoots "minute of pop can" at ten yards. Haven't had a chance to test it on paper due to weather. Like the fact that the barrel is rifled and can shoot pellets or bbs. I usually shoot only pellets though. Can be fired single or double action.
