This is a table top review of the Umarex Smith & Wesson 357 Model 686 CO2 Pellet Revolver. I show you around the gun and walk you through its basic operation and handling and show you some of the mechanical parts and what makes up this very high quality Replica 357 Airgun. I will be following this Table Top Review up shortly with a Field Test Review. did get the chance to do some preliminary testing and the Umarex S&W 357 Model 686 CO2 Pellet Revolver performed extremely well exceeding the claim fps and also getting a very tight target grouping form 30 feet out.
The Umarex Smith & Wesson 686 CO2 Pellet Revolver is not for everyone and I say that because the $250 plus price point is going to be just too much for many buyers. If you can find a way to get past the price then you will have a very high quality German made air gun on your hands, not only are the Smith & Wesson 568/686 CO2 Pellet revolvers very well made but they also perform as good if not better in terms of accuracy and velocity then even some dedicated target air pistols I have tested. Looks will not let you down either and I would not be surprised that this gun if well taken care of can be passed down to future generations as a working collectors item. If you are looking for a high quality, excellent performing replica pellet revolver then make sure to consider the Umarex Smith & Wesson 586 and 686 line of CO2 replica CO2 revolvers.
