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)

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.
