Type:BB Air Revolvers Manufacturer: ASG Model: Dan Wesson 6 and 8 inch Materials: Mostly Metal Weight: 2.25 - 2.3 pounds Barrel: Metal non-rifled Propulsion: CO2 x 1 Action: Revolver, single and double action Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BBs Ammunition Capacity: 6 rounds FPS: 426
Trigger Pull: The ASG Dan Wesson Revolvers have predictable triggers with the single action being a bit more consistent, not just in feel but in fps also. Double action mode is very usable without a lot of extra pressure required. I found I just wanted to shoot this gun in single action mode because it felt more natural with a six shooter. Accuracy: I shot the pair of Dan Wesson Revolvers at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and they performed well getting a 1.5 to 2 inch grouping just to the left of the target. The sights are adjustable for elevation and windage so getting these guns centered on the bulls eye would be very easy. My Chrony testing with a six shot averaged result was 395 fps for the six inch and 447 fps for the 8 inch Dan Wesson. Build Quality: These fine revolvers are extremely well built, I am beginning to think just about any product from ASG would not disappoint me, after reviewing the Dan Wesson's and CZ 75 P-07 DUTY. The Dan Wesson BB revolvers are almost all metal with just a few components made out of plastic, like the handles and CO2 screw tab. The handles feel like a cross between plastic and rubber. The finish on the six inch silver Dan Wesson is amazing and looks just like polished stainless steel. The black eight inch version has an almost metallic speckled finish without the shininess. Realism: The ASG Dan Wesson BB revolvers are as close as you can get to a real six shooter, ASG didn't leave any detail out and thought of a few I may have never even dreamt up! 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.
If I could have dreamt up this gun I don't think I could have done as good a job!
Very hard to get this gun in North America.
Plastic CO2 screw tab.
Only shoots BB's, would have been cool to shoot pellets too.
Comments: I'm not really a revolver person, or should I say I wasn't really a revolver person, well until I got my Dan Wessons! I felt this way because most of the air gun revolvers available look just like that - they look like air guns! The Dan Wesson BB revolvers showed me that an air gun revolver can be just as cool as any of my very realistic automatic air pistols in my collection. And if you were already a revolver fan then the Dan Wesson CO2 BB revolvers are definitely for you.
I have owned this gun for several years and it still works like new. A really fun, accurate, and realistic gun. This gun is meant for bb's but I tried rounded pellet in it and it works. Takes a little more time to load but you can get away with it if the pellets are rounded and not too long. Just push them into the "bullets". The barrel isn't rifled but it still shoots them just fine. All in all it's a great gun.

Do you feel lucky?
Whilst I realise this gun is meant to be more of a replica of a .357, one can't help but notice it's very similar in design to a modern .44. At any rate it is just fuggin' awesome. Terrific build quality. What stands out the most is its heft; it's almost a full weight gun. It feels good in my hand .. Sometimes a little too good ... It's very easy to enjoy this thing just holding the gun with a big ol' grin on my face.
I bought this to use as a movie prop for a local movie company I work for. We make extremely low budget movies but I figured it'd be cool to have something like this for our movies should we ever have a seen that requires a gun. My producer (who has family members that are cops, so he's seen a few guns in his time) was very impressed with the faux bullets that can be loaded and unloaded just like the real article.
I can't really vouch for its accuracy alive not really had a chance to use it yet but I've fired it off a few times and hit my targets where I wanted so it looks pretty good to me. I guess the only question you should have is, do you buy the steel version, or the black version? I would definitely go with BB rather than pellet as the BB version is more powerful (according to what I've read on the spec sheets).
Awesome gun and a perfect movie prop.

Best Air Gun I've bought
I bought this gun for leisure and target practice. I've owned many airsoft/pellet guns in the past, and this being my first CO2 powered one. I've gotta say, it's a real nice gun. It feels like a real .357in your hand, very accurate shots, and very powerful. Very sturdy, mostly steel (or whatever metal used) construction. However only 6 cartridges included in the box.

This video is a walkthrough review of the ASG Dan Wesson 6 inch Silver and 8 inch Black CO2 BB Revolvers. I show off these guns close up from all angles and point out the all metal construction and the incredible attention to realism these gun offer. I also show you targets for both of these revolvers that I did a 6 shot accuracy test, from 20 feet out in a free standing position. I test the feet per second of the two barrel lengths using a Chronograph to see if they compare to the manufacturers stated fps.
These BB shooting revolvers go beyond realistic and give you the feeling you are shooting a real six shooter you can shoot in your back yard without all the danger and noise and for a fraction of the cost of a real gun. These revolvers would make excellent training weapon as they work and look identical to the real steel in every way!
