This is a nice all metal replica
from Daisy of the Smith & Wesson Model 29. It has a swing-out
cylinder for loading pellets. The accuracy of this gun is
excellent, putting 6 shots in almost the same hole. It's too bad
Daisy didn't increase the capacity of the magazine since there
is plenty of room for at least 10 pellets. The trigger is a
little heavy in DA mode, but the SA trigger action is terrific.
I also have the 4" barrel for this gun.
This is the only CO2
revolver ever produced by Daisy and, in my opinion, is the best
replica handgun the company ever made.
