If you put your CO2 gun next to the real steel pistol, you may not be able to tell them apart:
- Both guns use cartridge shells.
- The BB gun's shells are marked .455 -- a reference to the firearm caliber.
- Both guns field-strip the same way!
- Shells in both guns eject the same way.
- The lanyard loop on the BB gun does double duty as the tightening screw to help properly pierce the CO2 cartridge.

Do you realize how much money you could make on this beautiful revolver by increasing FPS to at least 500 FPS. What a nice reproduction!
bottom line, if you are looking for a cool bit of history in all its replica glory, then this is the gun to buy....although, too pricy for what you are getting. i also got the Colt SAA last month, and that is also a great replica, but at a much better price. to be honest, i would almost rather get another Colt SAA and another nice gun for the price of the MKVI, but the MKVI is a one of a kind and difficult to even find a real one, whereas the Colt SAA is available as a great quality blank firing replica, or the real deal made by many great manufacturers and by Colt. so, if you don't mind overspending a bit and you don't mind the the velocity will not be great, then buy this beauty
