Dan Wesson Revolver - 8 Inch Grey/Black Steel BB

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

Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BBs
Ammunition Capacity: 6 rounds

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!

Pros:

  • 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!

Cons:

  • 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.

Great Overall

I have had this revolver for over a year and have put 6000+ rounds through it and it still functions flawlessly. As far as BB pistols go....it is the more consistently accurate one I have owned. After all that it still gives consistent chrony speeds of 400 fps +/- 10 fps. Definitely would recommend it if you are considering this style of pistol.

Excellent Gun

This is a great gun! it is big and has a great feel in your hand. It has a lot of power and I really enjoy shooting it. The only reason that I rated 4 on the quality is because when you cock the hammer it does not feel smooth or real. But it has a great finish and has a great weight to it. If you are looking for a fun, powerful shooter this is the gun for you!

Impressive Pistol

Out of the box, this gun is impressive in its size, if not a little rediculous, lol. Shoots true, mostly, and build quality is good, the only downside being the plastic grips that cannot be swapped out due to CO2 placement. Other than that, though, its a heck of a lot of fun to shoot.

Hot Diggity!

Nice, solid build quality, and great realism. As fun to load as it is to shoot. Extra shells are a must! It's a big negative that it only comes with six, so be prepared to shell out for the extra faux-bullets. Power is weak out of box, but do the fine-thread steel nut 'n' bolt trick under the mainspring stop, and with a bit of fussing, the revolver really comes to life. So far accuracy seems limited to the user, and the gun fires with a good crack. The action is a bit grainy at first, but it is smoothing out as it breaks in. If this sort of thing interests you, it's worth every penny. This gun an order of magnitude more powerful than my KWC 1911, GSG 92, P08 blowback, and Makarov Ultra. Paint is a parkerized sort of semi-gloss grey, and the lettering on the barrel needs to go.

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!
