I tend to slow things down a bit when I know I only have six rounds before I reload. And that’s fine. There’s just something about a revolver whether it be air powered or the real thing that just can’t be replaced by a semi or fully auto pistol. Since air isn’t wasted on blowback action you get a lot more shots per CO2 cartridge. The fiber optic sights work really well but I still mounted a red dot since it was already set up with a rail. I actually enjoy loading each shell and thinking how much less they cost than 357 magnums. Real range time is still the best. But CO2 I can do anytime I want with no travel and hardly any expenses.
Pros Nice quality, good feel and weight

This gun is very accurate at about 10 yards. I love the realistic looks and the fact you can get extra shells. Great gun and would recommend it very highly.
ProsFeels like the real thing, and the fiber optic sights
ConsTop rail ( took mine off) and only has 6 shoots ( real one has 8 rounds)

It came in several days and was thrilled with my purchase!
It came, looked like new and it works better than I thought it would.
After being in the retail sales business most of my adult life.
I've never bought any items that were refurbished, but this company has positively changed my thinking.
I will buy again from them and refurbished from them if I am able to use more and will recommend to others to deal with them.
ProsI am thrilled and any others can call the company and get my contact info and I'll state to all how god the service is.

Looks and feels great.
This is an excellent bb revolver with a price tag that should grab the attention of any enthusiast. It fires well in both double and single action modes. The weight feels appropriate. I also bought this to use as a prop for a movie. The fact that the cylinder still rotates and the hammer still works without co2 means that this revolver will make for a very convenient and cost effective prop.

great used guns as always
Shoots great and very accurate! Realistic with nice weight, even when I put a CenterPoint 30mm Red/Green Reflex Sight on it. GREAT FUN!
ProsVery fun to shoot
ConsSeems to be a little give in the barrel assembly, dose not affect the gun though

Sorry for the short review, in a nutshell "Great gun"
I've found this to be my most accurate bb pistol and I have no Idea why. I maintain the hell out of all my guns and they last.
ProsAccuracy for a bb pistol and I have several revolvers.
ConsNone that's the guns fault. I UN-characteristically left a c02 cart in the gun for a year and had to soak the seal w/pellgun oil and seal repair ATF for a couple of days to make it stop leaking It worked this time, whew. Always remove the C02 cartridge when done shooting.

Great Looks, OK Performance
The S&W 327 TRR8 is a "BA" looking pistol, no doubt. The rails add not only a cool look, but are functional for lights, lasers, or in my case, a green/red dot I picked up from Airgun Depot. As another couple of reviewers have noted, the top rail is a little loose out of the box, at least mine was. Since you should have a set of allen wrenches in your airgun kit, simply bust out a little one, and carefully tighten up the two bolts that hold the rail. It is adjustable front-to-back, just don't shove it too far back.
Also noted the "loose" barrel others have spoken of. Not sure what causes this, but doesn't seem to affect performance, a little annoying more than anything, but you really don't notice during shooting. The ejector rod is fully functional, but once you rotate the cylinder out, simply tip the gun back and the cartridges just fall right out. These carts BTW, load from the front, as opposed to the Peacemakers which load from the rear. Careful loading these back into the cylinder, as an over-zealous tap can pop the BB out. The sights are right on, no adjustment needed on mine. Although this is a double action, I prefer to use in single action mode, smoother draw to me.
About that Co2... It took me a re-seating of my first cartridge to get it right and have the thing seat properly. I don't care for the small wing nut like bolt that pushes and holds the cartridge in. To me, the big, easy to turn bolt in the Peacemaker is far better. Careful that you don't pull the grips off when you change the tank. You CAN, but the little latches on the top edge of the inside of the grip may try and hide on you when you try to re-install. Don't know if it's my seal, but it doesn't take just a few full cylinders to drain a cartridge, which means your last few BB's will literally be spitting out and falling a whopping 10' down range. Twice I've had the 6th round not fire at all. Again, this could just be my sample.
Overall, would I buy this gun again? Probably. For the most part it is solid, nowhere near the performance or feel of the Peacemaker, but good, especially if you can get the refurb version from AD.
ProsCool look! As a retired officer friend of mine said, "Don't go waving that around in public".
Sights are right on out of the box.
Smooth single action pull.
Rails are true and versatile.
Good overall feel and balance, a red/green on the top rail completes this bad boy!
ConsLoose feel of the barrel, although no noticeable detriment to performance.
Personally don't care for the Co2 nut.
BB's can pop out of the cartridge if poppeed too hard into the cylinder.

I've never ordered any product in my life that was refurbished, except this one. At about a 40% savings, I was surprised when I opened the box of this beautiful pistol. It looks and shoots "new". The first six shots were in a 1" bullseye from 15 feet. Keep in mind, I'm an old guy whose hand shakes. I don't have a rest in the garage where I shot this, but two-handed this pistol is as accurate as any .177 I have, and I have a bunch of them. Stretching out to 22 feet opened up the pattern some, but still, couldn't ask for more accuracy. Sound is great. 60-70 shots from the first cartridge I tried with a lot left over. Loading was a snap. I have two Dan Wesson speedloaders with cartridges and they look to be identical to this. This gun is clearly manufactured by the same people. I think it's a great gun, a great buy, and I got great service from AirGunDepot.
ProsCool factor, looks, heft, precision, accuracy, rails (see below), bargain priced, worth $100, let alone $55,
ConsI thought the barrel was loose when I first picked it up. It still seems slightly loose, but clearly has no affect on accuracy. By loose I mean if you hold the grip firmly and the front of the barrel with the other hand, it rocks a tiny bit. My Wesson doesn't do that. I'll watch it over the next couple of weeks, but I do not want to return this baby. I also was not happy that the rail was installed on the top of the pistol. I loosened the two set screws and was disappointed to find they had make marks. I would have put one layer of duct tape on the inside of the rail; it makes the fit nice and tight, and the screws do not make marks. I used that on my 776 and my Wesson. Works perfect. I did moujnt a laser on the bottom rail and it looks great, matched to the open sights. Nothing else not to like. I may get a second one of these.

GREAT REVOLVER A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR COLLECTION
Nice weight, great appearance, and smooth handling, I like to hand load not using the speed loader so I have no comment on the loader.
Fairley accurate but I am not the best target shooter ether. like the rails for attaching scopes, lasers, and lights.
Prosweight, balance, overall looks, hard shooter, this is a must for the collector as well
Conswhish the top rail could be removed, maybe if you remove the rear site the rail my slide off, do not know, I will have to try this.

FANTASTIC, AND I MEAN FANTASTIC SIXSHOOTER.
I'm fairly new to the game but not that new. I bought this Smith & Wesson 327 TRR8. After I had bought Dan Wesson chrome 6 inch sixshooter. NO COMPARISON.
THE TRR8 IS A MUCH BETTER PISTOL. THIS TRR8 FEELS LIKE THE REAL THING. THE DAN WESSON FEELS LIKE A TOY, ENOUGH SAID ON THAT ONE.
THE ACTION ON THE TRR8 FEELS REAL SMOOTH. I AM SO GLAD I PURCHASED THIS TRR8 SMITH & WESSON THAT I CANNOT BE MORE HAPPY THAN WHAT I AM RIGHT NOW. TODAY I FINISHED SIGHTING IN THE TRR8 WITH MY LASER AND I DID NOT WANT TO STOP SHOOTING. MY BROTHER SAID WELL YOU WENT THROUGH A COUPLE OF HUNDRED BB'S, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO STOP I TOLD HIM NEVER. THIS IS BEAUTIFUL ONCE YOU START SHOOTING IT YOU NEVER WANT TO STOP. YOU WILL FEEL THE SAME WAY ALSO. WHAT CAN I SAY IT'S A GREAT BB PISTOL THE BEST I HAVE OWNED THIS IS DEFINITELY MY ONE AND ONLY FAVORITE AND IT WILL REMAIN MY FAVORITE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TRR8 SMITH & WESSON PISTOL TO EVERYONE WHO READS MY REVIEW BELIEVE ME IT'S THE GREATEST HANDGUN YOU WILL EVER OWN. THE PICTURES OF THE LASER AND THE TRR8
A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN. I PUT THE LASER ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL SIGHTED IN VERY QUICKLY. I CAN ONLY GIVE IT FIVE STARS BECAUSE THAT'S ALL THERE'S IS. IF I COULD GIVE IT A WHOLE LOT MORE STARS I DEFINITELY WOULD.
ProsWHAT CAN I SAY I HAVE SAID IT ALL IN MY REVIEW.
ConsAS YOU CAN SEE THERE ARE NONE.

I have a bunch of pellet and bb guns both modern and old. This thing is very accurate for a smooth bore bb gun trigger pull is very good. Save money on ammo practice a lot with this then take your revolver to the range.
ProsGreat practice gun
ConsDoesn't come with enough cartridges keep the speed loader send 6 extra.

I've had this revolver for a couple of months now. Bought it from Airgundepot of course! This is downright the nicest BB gun I own. So nice I had to get a good leather holster for hiking and camping to take it with me. It has a great weight and feel to it, along with fiber optic sights to make it a great shooter! Very accurate too!
ProsFiber optic sights, looks and feel. Pretty much the same as the Dan Wessons. It takes the same cartridges! (bought the 25pc Dan Wesson cartridges, YES they DO work with this!)
ConsNone! Awesome BB gun!

I found this gun to be very functional on the range. It has the heft and feel of my S&W 686 even though it is only 2 pounds. It drew other shooters on the range like bees to honey. They were amazed at the look and feel of the gun. The attention to detail from the adjustable fiber optic site to the individual cartridges makes it look like a 686.
ProsLooks and feels like a full size weapon.
ConsI can not find a source for additional cartridges.
