Type: BB Pistol.
Manufacturer: Umarex.
Model: M29.
Materials: Metal & plastic.
Weight: 2.5 pounds (1135 grams).
Barrel Length: 8.375 inches (Smooth bore).
Total Length: 12.13 inches.
Power Source: 12 gram CO2 cartridge.
Action: Revolver, single and double action.
Ammo Type: 4.5mm steel BBs.
Ammo Capacity: 6 rounds.
FPS: 420fps claimed.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex S&W M29 8 Inch Barrel Shell Loading CO2 BB Revolver is light in single action but not too light, there is virtually no take up and the release is predictable. In double action the trigger pull is heavier as the cylinder and hammer are both actuated manually by the trigger but even so the pull is not what we would call heavy for a double action revolver. The double action trigger pull is nice and even and will not tire out your finger too much firing all six rounds quickly.

Accuracy: A shot of 4 rounds of each ammo through a Chronograph using a fresh CO2 cartridge. Umarex claims the Umarex S&W M29 8 Inch Barrel Shell Loading CO2 BB Revolver is able to get a maximum fps of 420 using standard 4.5mm steel BB’s and I was able to average 396 so very close. In warmer conditions 420 fps should be possible.

Build Quality: Overall the all metal build quality of the Umarex S&W M29 8 Inch Barrel Shell Loading CO2 BB Revolver is very good. The black chrome finish looks really nice but does show every finger print and any grease from your hands. The imitation wood grips look just like real wood and with only the exception of a small scratch or crack in the front plastic red sight.

Realism: The Umarex S&W M29 8 Inch Barrel Shell Loading CO2 BB Revolver is the same revolver used in one of the Dirty Harry Movies and really looks exactly the same. As with all the shell loading BB /Pellet / Airsoft Pistol, they look and perform exactly like the real steel versions other than recoil of course. The only give away for the Umarex S&W M29 8 Inch Barrel Shell Loading CO2 BB Revolver would be the diameter of the shells as Umarex decided to repurpose the 38/357 shells used in their other smaller caliber shell loading revolvers.

Pros:

  • Classic iconic 44 magnum movie revolver.
  • Mostly all metal build.
  • Good overall weight, it’s big so expected to weigh a fair amount.
  • Lots of detail, well made, fit and finish is very good.
  • Fully S&W Licensed via Umarex.
  • Simulated wood grips look real enough.
  • Should have good overall power, accuracy and shots per CO2 (claimed around 80 per CO2).
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage/elevation with red dot front sight.
  • CO2 Allen key built into grip.
  • Recessed barrel true to 44 magnum opening size.
  • Nice Trigger pull in both single and double action.

Cons:

  • Shells are closer to 357 not 44 magnum in size.
  • Don’t like the white writing on the right side.
  • Black chrome finish shows lots of finger prints and grease.

Comments: I really like that Umarex decided to give us this more classic Revolver to add to our collection of Airgun Revolvers! I was a big fan of the Dirty Harry Movies so this gun is for sure going to be part of my Airgun collection and even if you are not a fan, you should probably be a fan of the Smith and Wesson M29 which was considered to be one of the most powerful revolvers back in its day. Right now you can get it in 4.5mm steel BBs.

www.ReplicaAirguns.com In this Field Test Shooting Review I test out the Umarex S&W M29 8 Inch Barrel Shell Loading CO2 BB Revolver in the Replica Airguns Sea Can Indoor Shooting Range to find out its velocity and accuracy using both 4.5mm Steel BB’s and .177 Caliber Lead Pellets. The version I am using is the BB version but my viewers have informed me that the BB version may in fact shoot just as well as the pellet version using pellets even without the rifled barrel due to how pellets are shaped not always requiring a rifled barrel to fly true. So let’s find out!
