All Dan Wesson revolvers feature full metal construction and are known to be some of the most reliable revolvers of the air pistol class. The cylinder swings open to reveal six shells that can be emptied with the ejector rod. The 12g CO2 cartridge is inserted in to the grip and each of the realistic 6 metal shells holds one steel pellet. Each pistol also has an unique serial number on the frame, just like an actual firearm. When you pick up the pistol and hold it, you will appreciate the genuine craftsmanship and realistic quality of the Dan Wesson 8? pellet revolver.

Things I would have changed: Increase the muzzle velocityt, for such a fine looking Air Pistol the stated m/v should be correct(or at least very close to it), The Air Gun Market is in Desperate need of a .22 caliber offering that has more than single-shot capabilities, Other than the Daisy 622x that was a fantastic .22 caliber "Repeating" pistol,I know that if a pistol like that was available I'd probobly buy half a dozen,LOL,Well at least 2, This pistol vamped up a little bit would fit that niche quite nicely, Maybe something for the boys in the design dept to consider.
What others should know: I found that the "Shells" are not pellet fussy, and pellets of varying length may be used without fear of "jamming", Try and stay in the 5-8gr,. range, anything higher and you'll start lobbing your rounds at your target, with that being said, I found this pistol just loves Crosman Premeir Super-Points in lead with 6 shots covered by a quarter at 10 Meters(off-hand), In "Alloy" H&N Baracuda Greens came out on top over H&N FTT Greens, The Crosman SSP's at only 4.0gr,. gave me a great m/v approaching 500fps, This is what I mean by Increasing the M/V for this pistol, as an example when I shoot my Crosman "Vigilante" with the same pellet my M/V is well above 500fps, approaching 530fps, and with excellent accuracy. All in All The "Dan Wesson" Pellet Revolver is an utter Joy to own, shoot, and I'm sure it will become the showpiece of anyones collection. Plan on buying Spare Shells, and speedloaders, Once you start shooting this beauty, You won't want to stop. Cheer's, Andy
I bought two 12 packs and 2 speed loaders. The ONLY other thing-need to use a short pellet!! Longer pellets stick out to fare and interferes with the revolver action.
