Designed to look like the 1858 Remington revolver which was, of course, a muzzle-loader.
This one copies the later cartridge-converted variant.
The size and weight are quite a surprise when you get it in your hands. It’s not light and tinny as you might expect. It has a Peacemaker-style loading gate and takes six dummy cartridges, each with a pellet or BB.
Insert them in with the hammer at half-cock and you’re good to go.
A very nice touch is this little under-frame safety catch. A CO2 bulb is loaded via the left-hand grip and an L-shaped hex key is included to make life a bit easier. This revolver even dismantles authentically and for added realism has an ejector rod.
Shoots pellets or BBs. A total of twelve shells are included (six for pellets and six for BBs), plus instructions.
These are terrific back-garden plinkers and very satisfying to use. The grip is a lot larger than you might expect but that makes a very comfortable fit for adults at least. The trigger breaks at about 4lb.
