Type:Airsoft Revolvers Manufacturer: ASG - G&G Model: Dan Wesson 2.5 inch Gold - G&G G731 2.5 inch Silver & Black Materials: Mostly metal Weight: 1.87 pounds. (850 grams) - 1.65 pounds. (750 grams) Barrel: Metal non-rifled Propulsion: CO2 x 1 Action: Revolver, single and double action Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's Ammunition Capacity: 6 rounds FPS: 394
Trigger Pull: Both of these pistols have about the same style of triggers, they both shoot in true revolvers style offering single and double action triggers. The double action has a bit of friction to it since the cylinder is being rotate during the first part of the trigger pull and there is a spring fed metal gasket between the barrel and the cylinder that creates a seal but does apply pressure and results in some friction and a heavier trigger pull in double action. Single action is much lighter on both guns.
Accuracy: This part of my testing has not been conducted to date, I will put a link in here when I have completed my Shooting Field Test review for the ASG Dan Wesson 2.5 inch Gold and G&G G731 2.5 inch Airsoft pistols. Even though the claimed fps is around 400 for both guns I am expecting more like 350-375 fps. Accuracy should be decent at closer ranges but since there is no hop-up, neither gun would be good at longer ranges in my opinion
Build Quality: These detailed revolvers are really well built! Both are almost all metal with just a few components made out of plastic, like the handles on both guns and the CO2 screw tab on the Dan Wesson. Both revolvers grips gave me just a bit of concern, you will need to be careful when snapping in the grip on the G&G G731 and the Dan Wesson grips have been known to wear a bit with heavy use. The finish on both of these guns is amazing and while the Silver finish on the G&G looks just like polished stainless steel, the Gold finish on the Dan Wesson offers a very unique and customized finish not found on too many guns. And if you just want classic black then there is always the G&G G731 in standard black as an option.
Realism: The ASG Dan Wesson and G&G G731 revolvers are as close as you can get to real six shooters, all the parts work pretty much like a real revolver, the realistic loading of the metal shells not only make it feel like you are handling a real revolver but also finish off the look making it really hard to tell that both these pistols are in fact Airsoft Revolvers.
Revolver with actual brass shells giving you the feeling of a real 6 shooter!
Almost all metal design.
Lots of detail in both revolvers, very well made, fit and finish is excellent.
Should have respectable power for a short barreled pistol.
Fully adjustable sight on the ASG Dan Wesson.
G&G G731 is super compact and flush, great out of the way back up side arm.
No Red Tip on the Canada version.
Plastic CO2 screw tabs on the Dan Wesson (but is well hidden and protected).
A bit of concern with wearing and usage on the grips for both guns.
No adjustable sight on the G&G G731 but super clean looking.
Red tip on the US version :(
Comments: As with all of these shell loading revolvers, they are just so realistic and really fun to load up and shoot. You actually get a bit of time in-between shooting to take a breath and enjoy the entire experience rather than just unload round after round with some of the other super high round magazine guns. I love the compact size of both guns, perhaps the G&G G731 just a bit more with its super clean edges and even smaller profile. But on the other hand the Dan Wesson ASG 2.5 inch has that more aggressive combat look if that is more to your liking! Either way, both guns make a great choice for an out of the way revolver styled side arm when you need that extra backup firepower!
I have two of these because this price was right. I re-barreled both to4.5 mm to shot BB's or Pellets. Seemed like a shame for such a gunto just shoot 6 mm plastic BB's.

This really is a lil gem , the fit and finish is extremly nice, the nickle plating is smooth.the whole pistol overall is fantastic and makes an awsome side arm , i feel its way nicer than the dan wesson which looks poor compared to this piece and the smaller grips feela lot more natural to hold in your hand. get one you wont be disappointed, i love mine....

good realism and nice feel in the hand Ok accuracy!
Loved this gun for quality in materials, great feel and weight, superb realsim and shooter experience. Not that bad for accuracy in 20 Ft shooting distance , once you get used to the fixed sights. I found it a pleasure and a hoot to shoot. Gun had tighter trigger and hammer compared to Dan Wessons and overall better fit. 2 thumbs up again

cool factor 5 stars
Not many snub nose revolvers with tiny grips out there. Perfect back up to your pistol out on the field. Realism is fantastic, slim sights makes this revolver slick. Only down side is that no hop up system with a short barrel makes this gun very hard to hit targets. Worst accuracy I have encountered. But the cool factor makes this gun worth buying.
Since both the Gold ASG Dan Wesson and the G&G G731 Airsoft Revolvers both have the 2.5 inch barrels on them and in many ways are very similar (at least mechanically), I thought I would not only do my Table Top Review but also my Field Test Shooting Review using both guns side by side so we can really get an idea of how they perform and compare.
As per usual, I test both pistols out on my Chronograph to see what kind of real world feet per second rating I get, then I do my accuracy test, I decided to setup at my 30 foot mark so that any accuracy differences would be more noticeable, again I shot 6 rounds from each gun while I used a semi rested position, (sand bag for a hand rest and standing in the back).
If you want more of that combat look with some Gold Bling than perhaps the Gold ASG Dan Wesson is the one for you? Perhaps you want something like the G&G G731, as compact and simple as it gets that you know you can count on as a backup ready sidearm. There isn't a bad choice here with either of these nice compact Airsoft Revolvers.
This video is a walkthrough review / comparison of the ASG Dan Wesson 2.5 inch Gold and G&G G731 Airsoft CO2 Airsoft Revolvers. I show off these Revolvers close up from all angles and point out the all metal construction and the incredible attention to realism offered by both of them.
