“This is a great gun for $40 at Walmart, it comes with...”

Written on: 30/03/2003 by Stealth. (1 review written)

Good Points
Lightweight, cheap, accurate, and very versatile.

Bad Points
The safety is easily turned form "safe" to "fire", most parts are plastic, CO2 dependent

General Comments
This is a great gun for $40 at Walmart, it comes with two clips which hold 10 pellets!!! It is double action or single which alolows full control in firing, has a very nice trigger when hammer is cocked before firing. It is very accurate being a revolver. All round good purpose plinker and fun-gun. Also i have shot a small bird right in the eye with this resulting in an instant kill proving it to be a sufficent bird smacker of around 10 yds. one of the things i hate though is the Co2. After about 2 magzines (20 pellets) it does not have the power to kill, but to plink it does. I dont like to use mine as a "machine gun" LOL. I bought mine cause of the 6- inch barrel that improving accaurcy, resulting in cleaner kills. If u want something that shoots real fast go get a gamo p-23 or something but this i use as a hunting gun. If u hunt with it then 20 shots should be plenty if u make ur shots count.



Good luck, I hope i helped

You can hunt with a rock, but if your talking about responsible mature hunting, always use enough gun. Humane hunting small game [rabbits, squirrels] with a airgun should be .20-.22 cal. in the 800-1000 fps. range, anything less is immature. Rats, mice, starlings and other small vermin can be dispatched cleanly in the 500-600 fps range, using .177 cal., anything with less power should only be used for target practice. I know there have been kills with Daisy Red Ryders, as a kid, I did it myself, but were talking here about humane.

Vrs818....Absolutely! Guys in the Amazon jungle kill monkeys with blowpipes and some Australians kill birds and small game with boomerangs. Even LOOKS have been questioned!

But are't those Amazonians using darts smeared with toxins derived from local plants? Nerve agent poisoning is a particularly unpleasant death. Also, it bears considering that they are killing to eat, rather than for "sport."

Granted, there are animals, such as European Starlings and English "sparrows" which will nest on top or otherwise kill indigenous American birds, and for which a legitimate argument can be made to consider them pests. Even so, their lives are all that animals have. If you are going to kill them, please do it as quickly as reasonably possible. Also, keep in mind that when you kill a bird or mammal, you may be causing death by starvation to their immature offspring. The rat pups may not be much regretted by most, but the immature songbirds will be regretted by many.

The energy transfer required to kill even very small animals such as mice is about six foot-pounds. Even with the relatively long barrel of this air pistol, the muzzle energy of a .177 CO2 handgun using 12g cartridges is unlikely to exceed three foot-pounds. For detailed discussion in which twelve foot-pounds muzzle energy is recommended as minimum for hunting, see: Pyramydair Article on Airgun Hunting from April.

Some Amazonian gents may still not have access to technology less cruel than darts and nerve agents. We do. The same $50-$75 it takes to buy a CO2 powered "action pistol" can buy a refurbished Ruger Blackhawk or Crossman Phantom .177 spring piston air rifle with the inherent accuracy and power to deliver the energy transfer necessary to first round kills of small game. If hunting is part of your intended use, please think before you buy.

It doesn't matter if it's a pistol or a rifle as long as it is powerfull. If u know how to shoot good, then u can hunt with anything.

WHY not hunting with an airgun ?The power
<br>is big enough for hunting (little games of course). It depends on the shooter's ability ! A lot of reviewers hunt with their handguns.
<br>I don't think they are wrong...
