Trigger Pull: Trigger pull on the Umarex Colt Single Action Army CO2 Pellet Revolver is the best I have ever come across in an airgun. Being that the Umarex Single Action Army Revolvers are single action only, most of the work is done while you pre-cock the hammer. The trigger pull is under 2 pounds and has virtually no take up with a crisp release.
Accuracy: I performed my standard 30 foot back paper target shooting test using a semi-rested position, standing in the back with a sandbag up front to rest my hands on for stability. This position is nice and steady but not perfect so there is always some human factor to consider and I know at least one of the 6 shots went a bit high on account of me pulling that one shot just a little bit. Removing that one shot I kind of blew, I was able to get a very tight .75 inch grouping with the Umarex Colt Single Action Army CO2 Pellet Revolver. And looking back at the video my hold was a little on the jittery side, perhaps one too many espressos this morning...In my first portion of the FPS velocity test, I used my somewhat temperamental Chronograph shooting several 7 grain lead pellets using a brand new CO2. I really did not have much luck with my Chronograph today, it did not seem to like the lead pellets I was using? I went through 12 shots and only got 3 decent readings which were rather spread apart. 318, 484 and 333 FPS for an average of 378 FPS. I can say that when shooting the Umarex Colt Single Action Army CO2 Pellet Revolver the pellets do seem to get to the target pretty quickly and my gut estimate is that they are moving somewhere in the high 300 to low 400 FPS range.
Build Quality: The Umarex Colt Single Action Army Pellet Revolver has a mostly all metal construction other than the plastic grips and seals. The fit and finish is excellent with a great overall weight in the hand. The mechanical action of the hammer and trigger feels just like it would on a real Single Action Army revolver.
Realism: In terms of replicating a real steel Colt Single Action Army CO2 Pellet Revolver, Umarex has done a really great job with their CO2 pellet firing version. The CO2 is well hidden with the Allen key built into the handle so no ugly screw tab hanging down.
Comments: All I can say is we finally got our Airgun 1857 Colt Single Action Army Revolver! I have been asking the big airgun companies for this for a while and I knew it would be very popular once made available. As it turns out, not only do the "Americans" want one, but so do many folks overseas! I am really glad that time and effort was put into this version and we got such a great product that looks amazing and shoots just as good as it looks. For anyone who is interested in owning the classic cowboy six shooter, you have to make sure to get one of these super realistic Single Action historic revolvers!
