Umarex Brodax BB Revolver 4.5mm CO2

Type: BB air revolver
Manufacturer: Umarex
Model: Brodax
Materials: Mostly plastic with some metal construction
Weight: 586 g (1.3 pounds)
Barrel: 5.5 inches, non-rifled
Power Source: 12 gram CO2 x 1
Action: Revolver, single and double action
Ammo Type: 4.5mm steel BBs
Ammo Capacity: 10 rounds
FPS: 375

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver is actually rather nice. If you decide to cock the hammer back and shoot it single action style then you get a little bit of that SAA Revolver like ratcheting sound. The trigger pull in single action mode is short with virtually no take-up and on the light side. Double action shooting with the Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver is not overly long or heavy either so action shooting is totally possible with this BB shooting CO2 revolver.

Accuracy: I can not comment so far on the shooting performance for the Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver since I have not shot it yet. The weather is getting nicer outside so that should happen pretty soon. The claimed FPS for the Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver is stated at only 375 which I find seems a bit low for a non-blowback fairly straight forward BB pistol with an almost 6 inch barrel so hopefully my testing shows performance up into the 400's which I am hoping for. The open sights are non-adjustable but there are tons more options by taking advantage of the two rails top and bottom for adding either a red dot or laser to increased target shooting ability.

Build Quality: The Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver is pretty much an all metal pistol with the outer shell being made up of plastic, there is a fair bit of internal metal going on along with the trigger, hammer and of course the inner barrel made out of metal parts. Mechanically the Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver feels solid and even though it only weighs in at 1.3 pounds it feels much heavier in the hand.

Realism: The Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver as far as I know is not an exact replica of any real steel gun currently in production. It's basically a spin off of an ultra tactical .44 magnum revolver with a super beefed up front barrel assembly sporting all kinds of accessory options to be placed on the top and bottom rails. I like that Umarex made sure to recess the barrel opening so it has a more realistic barrel size. Like many new CO2 airguns coming out these days the CO2 is not only well hidden inside the grips but a handy Allen key is built into the handle.

Pros:

  • Not the heaviest revolver on the market but it feels really nice in the hand and has good balance, the weight is not bad at all and feels heavier than 1.3 pounds
  • Trigger action is really good in both single and double action, short light single action trigger and totally usable double action trigger
  • CO2 is well hidden with built-in Allen key in the handle
  • Rails top and bottom for all kinds of accessory add-on options
  • Barrel is recessed for that larger caliber look
  • Nice and discreet safety
  • Comes with three 10-shot easy to load rotary magazines
  • Low-cost with high fun factor

Cons:
  • Grips are a bit hard to remove to get at the CO2, may work in over time?
  • All black sights are not great on dark backgrounds and are non-adjustable
  • Would have liked to see FPS into the 400 range

Comments:
The Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver when I first picked it up did not appeal to me all that much, maybe knowing it was for the most part yet another mostly plastic BB revolver with those thin pop in disc magazines didn't help me take notice much. But as I have been playing around with the Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver it has grown on me a lot. I think it has a really cool look that is also very usable in terms of putting just about any accessory you want on this CO2 revolver. The hammer and trigger action are also both excellent for not just an inexpensive airgun but even a higher end airgun. And right out of the box, or should I say clam-shell plastic wrap, you get three rotary disc magazines which is a nice bonus.

Make sure to checkout my Table Top Video and Written Review for the Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver where I show you around this Russian made target pistol and go over its features and specifications.

This Field Test Shooting Video Review focuses on the performance aspects of the Umarex Brodax CO2 BB Revolver. I test it out to see what kind of velocity it can achieve as compared to the 375 fps Umarex states and I also conduct an accuracy test form 30 feet away to see how straight and true it shoots.
