Model: Dan Wesson 8 Inch Grey/Black Airsoft
Materials: Mostly metal
Weight: 968g (2.25 pounds)
Barrel: Metal, non-rifled
Power Source: 12g CO2 x 1
Action: Revolver, single and double action
Ammo Type: 6mm plastic airsoft BBs
Ammo Capacity: 6 rounds
Trigger Pull: The ASG Dan Wesson Airsoft Revolver has a predictable trigger with the single action being a bit lighter and more consistent, not just in feel but also in terms of FPS. Double action shooting is very usable without a lot of extra pressure required and makes for fun consecutive shooting albeit you will run out of ammo pretty quick compared to many high capacity semi-auto styled airguns.
Accuracy: I shot the Dan Wesson Airsoft Revolver at a target from 20 feet away in a semi-rested position, and it performed excellent, getting a 1.5 inch 6 shot grouping dead center in the bull’s-eye! The sights are fully adjustable for elevation and windage so getting these guns centered on the bull’s-eye if you were out a bit would be very easy. My Chrony testing for the Dan Wesson Airsoft Revolver with a six shots averaged result was 399 FPS.
Build Quality: This detailed revolver is extremely well built! All the Dan Wesson Revolvers are almost all metal with just a few components made out of plastic, like the handle and CO2 screw tab. The handle feels like a cross between plastic and rubber but is basically plastic with a coated paint on it that can wear off with long term use so try and go easy on the grips. The finish on the six inch silver Dan Wesson is amazing and looks just like polished stainless steel. Very nice indeed!
Realism: The ASG Dan Wesson BB revolvers are as close as you can get to a real six shooter, ASG didn't leave out any details and has really brought us an extremely believable CO2 revolver that mimics the real steel in almost every way! Loading and ejecting actual brass shells into the cylinder makes you feel like this gun is much more than an unassuming airgun!
- It's a revolver with actual brass shells giving you the feeling of a real 6 shooter!
- Almost all metal design
- Lots of detail in this gun, very well made, fit and finish is excellent
- Good power and good accuracy
- Fully adjustable sights
- Can mount a scope of some sort on it with the rail attached
- Right amount of power, even for some indoor CQB style airsoft games
- Plastic CO2 screw tab (but is well hidden and protected)
- Grips can wear a bit with extended use
Comments: I wasn't really a revolver person until I got my Dan Wessons’! They are really fun to shoot and yes you only get to fire off 6 shots at a time but the reloading is kind of fun and adds to the realism of shooting a revolver styled gun. The other benefit to taking breaks every 6 shots to reload is the time it allows your CO2 and gun to warm up which increases the overall FPS and shots per CO2. I am not sure if a large six shot revolver is the way to go when in a high intensity airsoft game but I can tell you when you're on the other end of the barrel of one of these you are probably not thinking how many shots does he have left.

- ASG Dan Wesson 6 inch Silver CO2 Airsoft Revolver Field Test Shooting Review.
-6mm Plastic Airsoft BB's
-Dan Wesson Replica
-All Metal Design
-Purchased from www.ReplicaAirguns.com
I've had the opportunity to review and shoot my Dan Wesson 4.5mm Steel BB Version so I kind of knew what to expect with the Airsoft version, much of the same but with perhaps a little bit less accurate further out shooting since the plastic BB's will tend to drift a bit more.
I already did my pretest for the ASG Dan Wesson 6 Inch Silver CO2 Airsoft Revolver while making my Table Top Review and shot right around the 400 fps mark, but it was a colder day then, I also shot my ASG Dan Wesson Airsoft Revolver from a closer up 20 feet for the pretest and got a nice tight 1.5 inch shot group.
On the actual Field Test Shooting day it was much warmer (tank top weather ;) and so as would be expected, this time my ASG Dan Wesson 6 Inch Silver CO2 Airsoft Revolver shot a bit faster at closer to 420 fps average with 6 shots put through it. There is even room for some more fps still as it was only about 22 degrees Celsius or about 72 Fahrenheit.
Accuracy from 30 feet out was not as tight as my pretest 20 foot testing and I would imagine the further back we go with the Airsoft ASG Dan Wesson, this will spread out even more as is the case with Airsoft BB's. They are just not as accurate as steel BB's especially when shooting at longer ranges. I would expect this Airsoft Dan Wesson version should still be very effective on a man sized target up to about 60 feet or so. Keep in mind there is no hop-up in this revolver so BB's will drop much more than a gun that has hop-up.
Like the 4.5mm BB shooting version you can expect a good 100 or more shots from this Airsoft BB Shooting Dan Wesson CO2 Revolver. Having tradition revolver single and double action triggers makes for both precise and action styled shooting. All in all a really nice Airsoft pistol from ASG.
