Type: BB air revolver
Model: Smith & Wesson 327 TRR8
Materials: Mostly metal with some plastic construction
Weight: 2.3 pounds
Barrel: 6 inches, non-rifled
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2
Action: Revolver, single & double actions
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BBs
Ammunition Capacity: 6 rounds
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Smith & Wesson 327 TRR8 is good in both single and double action; I wouldn't say it isn't supper light in either action but pretty decent overall. I found shooting in single action to be the most precise as the release point is instant. Shooting in double action was also fairly predictable.
Accuracy: The results I got shooting my 6 round group from a 20 foot out position where none other than impressive and I would have to say the 327 TRR8 shot the best group (just over a 1/2 inch) I have ever recorded using 4.5mm steel BBs. I'm not even sure if I have bettered these results using pellets from a rifled barreled pistol? This goes to show you how well an accurate BB gun can perform when shooting from a reasonable distance.
Build Quality: With the Umarex S&W 327 TRR8 Revolver being mostly metal, you would expect it to have a decent build quality and I am happy to say it does. Everything looked and fit well, the CO2 Revolver had good heft to it and I had absolutely no problems shooting this gun. My only real reservation is the plastic CO2 screw tab but so far with my other guns that have the same type of tabs, they are holding up well.
Realism: The Umarex Smith & Wesson 327 TRR8 is very realistic in terms of looking and operating as a revolver with its brass shell casings you load juts like a real revolver, so yes it feels realistic and even looks a lot like a S&W 327 TRR8 to some degree. With that said, Umarex has taken some liberty on this one most likely because it is built off an existing airgun frame and to make it into a true 327 TRR8 replica would have required a complete redesign. I would have to say the Umarex S&W M&P R8 is actually a closer 327 TRR8 Replica than the gun reviewed in this video.
Comments: What's not to like about this Umarex Smith & Wesson Revolver? It's built very well, it most certainly looks good, it has the best tested accuracy I have seen so far from a BB gun, it shot even higher velocities than claimed, it gets tons of shots from a single CO2, and it loads up just like a real steel revolver but at a fraction of the cost to shoot! If you want to customize yours you have plenty of options with two weaver mounts top and bottom and it comes in at a very reasonable price tag!

This post is really all about watching the YouTube video and seeing how these two similar CO2 4.5mm Steel BB revolvers compare to each other. I was working with a new Chronograph since again it was really dark outside and my old Chronograph does not like darkness. I did get some usable Chrony results with the new one but I did have to work for it ;) Read full article here: https://www.replicaairguns.com/2014/1/10/asg-dan-wesson-8-inch-revolver-vs-umarex-sw-327-trr8-head-to.html Buy S&W 327 TRR8 in Canada: http://www.replicaairguns.ca/smith-wesson-black-327-trr8.html
