Things I liked:This Revolver is just plain Fantastic, The quality of material & workmanship is second to none, The only thing(or two) that would be the cherry on this sundae, is having it available in .22 as well as giving it an increase in muzzle velocity to at least 495fps. This gun was put out on the market with very little available in the way of accessories, Extra "Shell's" won't be available 'til sometime in Sept,. and no word as of yet on spare "Speed-Loaders", The availability of a holster that fits the gun like a glove is a Big Plus, although I would of made it more "MOLLE" friendly with other ways of attaching it to your gear other than a "Belt-Loop" that doesn't look like it could take very much abuse.
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.
