This is my first air pistol and I decided to purchase it after reading all the reviews about it here. I took 8" barrel one and very happy with it due to power & accuracy the gun produces.
Using following pellets:
RWS Superpoint Extra or RWS Superdome
I can shoot straight thru a paper magazine like "Wired" that contains 189 pages plus 2 cover pages from 4 meters distance. (It is approx. 12-13 mm thickness of high-quality paper). In my understanding this is an impressive power for the CO2 pistol… Read Full Review

The S&W 8' is a great co2 revolver, as it delivers all kinds of needs; the power is great, for example it penetrates a can of full unopened bean tin. the accuracy is great compared to other pistols like the Beretta 92f which i also have.
The Smith is well constructed and will last for years, when handled there are no ridged bits, meaning there is nothing lose. the trigger is a dream to pull and is not at all stiff, the hammer is also easy to cock ad to decock.
The Smith comes with a well… Read Full Review

I had brought a second hand Smith & Wesson Model 5868. The advantages of the gun are very good accuracy and able to hold longer pellet like English made steel head pellets.
The disadvantage of the gun was it was weak in power, since my Colt 911 had more powerful than it "the 8 inch barrel boy". It was relatively weak in power in my opinion. I believe that most of experienced co2 shooters knew that. The reason for revolvers relatively weak in power is because of co2 gas leaking from the gap… Read Full Review

I bought a Smith & Wesson Model 868 the other day and received a parcel of outstanding workmanship as expected from a German built gun. Comes in a case with Smith & Wesson emblem on the front and on opening the case you find this well made gun (I bought the nickel version) in a foam cut out and places for two c02 bottles, and a barrel cleaning rod, and comprehensive instructions. The magazines are metal not plastic like a lot of pistols I wont mention and I also bought a silencer but I… Read Full Review

I bought my Smith & Wesson 586-8 for £112 from Airshooter.co.uk and I'm absolutely delighted with it. The 1st thing that hits you when you open the box is it's size & weight, It's Big and Heavy. Great!! just like the real thing. Then when you fire it for the 1st time BANG! it's loud Great again!! Big guns should be loud. and it's powerful, I think the official figures are 3.5ft lbs & around 450fps but it seems more powerful than that, after firing around 50 rounds of Webley Harrier pellets… Read Full Review

This is, as previously stated by most of the other reviews, a CO2 .177 firing replica of the Smith and Wesson 586 .357 revolver, and is built under licence by Umarex in Germany. It comes complete, in a blue moulded and foam lined plastic case, with a cleaning rod, barrel removal tool, 2 alternative foresight elements and one pellet magazine, and is also supplied with very comprehensive instructions, safety notes and an exploded parts diagram with part numbers should anything ever need… Read Full Review

The Smith & Wesson Model 5868 is a good looking gun and nice to handle. Very heavy, which damps down recoil. Fully adjustable rear sights, which gives fine tuning, and great accuracy and extra power from the 8" barrel.
Based on the 357 magnum revolver, it holds 10 rounds, the side swing cylinder fitting onto the back of a fake one. It has double and single action, and I find that the double action is better than the single, with a crisp let of point which prevents jerking at the final stage… Read Full Review
