Hi folks. I'm fortunate enough to have the real thing chambered in .357 magnum and this replica is an absolute beauty and is very similar to the real deal. The .357 is so expensive to shoot, and I wanted to get something similar to practice in my own backyard without having to go to the range and spend $50 every time.
I'm happy to say that this Colt replica is so incredibly fun to shoot that I think I even enjoy shooting it more, as I don't have to clean it when I'm done and 100 rounds only costs me $1.50!
It's also super accurate and heavy like my original. Co2 lasts a long time. Absolutely AWESOME!!
[[VIDEOID:13abd71810286a9ed680126d26b023e9]] My new favorite. Loves Crosman 10.5 gr ultra magnums, holds a 1" off-hand group at 10 yards.. Plenty of power, flips the discs on the caldwell resetting steel target.. Beautiful!
So I got the gun about a week or so ago and when I saw it, I thought what an amazing piece this was. It’s incredibly accurate to the real thing! After admiring how amazing it looked, I went to pull the hammer back and it wouldn’t budge. I was confused at first, looking around it and putting the safety on and taking it off. Didn’t work. I figured the only way to see what was wrong with it was to take it apart, but I didn’t have a small enough screwdriver to unscrew it, so I had to wait until I was able to acquire one. Finally took it apart and I saw that the small piece in the pics was already broken right out of the box! There was no small, loose, piece inside the gun or the box, so I assume it had to have broken during assembly and was never replaced. I am quite dissatisfied with that fact. I now have a completely non-working replica of a weapon I expected to be able to use, and now can’t.
