ASG Dan Wesson 715 6 Inch Silver CO2 BB Revolver Field Test Review

Make sure to checkout my ASG Dan Wesson 715 Table Top Review Video for more information, specifications some additional photos.

This Field Test Shooting Video Review focuses on the performance results of the ASG Dan Wesson 715 CO2 BB Revolver. I put it through my standard Field Test to see what kind of feet per second performance it can achieve using 5.1 grain Steel 4.5mm BB's. I also perform my standard 6 shot Revolver accuracy test from 30 feet back with a semi rested shooting position to see how this very modern 6 shooter groups on a paper target.

In the first portion of the fps velocity test, I used my temperamental Chronograph shooting 6 rounds in total with a brand new CO2. Out of the 6 shots I did mange to get 3 good readings so I guess it could have been worse. The fps reading for the three shots where 338, 331 and 326 with a three shot average of 332 fps. Not what I expected from the ASG Dan Wesson 715 CO2 BB Revolver since the claimed fps is closer to 430 and it was not an overly cold day so I should have been in the ball park. Perhaps my Chrony is not reading like it should be and maybe it's time for a new one :(

Next on my Field Test Shooting list was the accuracy portion of this review. I performed my standard 30 foot back paper target shooting test using my standard semi-rested position, standing in the back with a sandbag up front to rest my hands on for stability. This position is fairly steady but not perfect so there is always some human factor to consider. I had to perform this part of the test twice as one of my cameras was not rolling in the first go around. Unfortunately the first test was the best but I can say the ASG Dan Wesson 715 CO2 BB Revolver is very capable of getting all 6 shots under 1 inch with a little practice and a steady hand

I really love the new ASG Dan Wesson 715 CO2 BB Revolver, it's for sure a much better made version than the older Dan Wesson and it seems ot be just as accurate. I am almost positive this pistol shoots harder than what my Chronograph was giving it credit for, you can just tell by how quick the BB's are getting to the target. so perhaps another FPS test is in order to find out for sure. Other than that the ASG Dan Wesson 715 CO2 BB Revolver is an awesome modern shell loading CO2 six shooter and a lot of fun to shoot.

Umarex Colt Single Action Army CO2 Pellet Revolver Field Test Review

Make sure to checkout some of my other Colt Single Action Army Videos as I have done some Table Top and shooting videos for the BB shooting version of this pistol.

This Field Test Shooting Video Review focuses on the performance results of the Umarex Colt Single Action Army CO2 Pellet Revolver. I put it through its paces to see what kind of feet per second performance it can achieve using .7 grain RWS lead pellets. I also perform my standard 6 shot Revolver accuracy test from a 30 foot back semi rested shooting position to see how this classic cowboy 6 shooter groups on a paper target.

In my first portion of the fps velocity test, I used my somewhat temperamental Chronograph shooting several RWS 7 grain lead pellets using a brand new CO2. I really did not have much luck with my Chronograph today, it did not seem to like the lead pellets I was using? I went through 12 shots and only got 3 decent readings which where rather spread apart. 318, 484 and 333 fps for an average of 378 fps. I can say that when shooting the Umarex Colt Single Action Army CO2 Pellet Revolver the pellets do seem to get to the target pretty quickly and my gut estimate is that they are moving somewhere in the high 300 to low 400 fps range.

Next on my Field Test Shooting list was the accuracy portion of this review where I did not have to worry about my tech gear working properly! I performed my standard 30 foot back paper target shooting test using a semi-rested position, standing in the back with a sandbag up front to rest my hands on for stability. This position is nice and steady but not perfect so there is always some human factor to consider and I know at least one of the 6 shots went a bit high on the account of me pulling that one shot just a little bit. Removing that one shot I kind of blew, I was able to get a very tight .75 inch grouping with the Umarex Colt Single Action Army CO2 Pellet Revolver. And looking back at the video my hold was a little on the jittery side, perhaps one too many espresso this morning...

I am a huge fan of these Umarex distributed Colt Single Action Army CO2 Pellet Revolvers, they now come in 4.5mm Steel BB, .177 caliber lead pellet and even Airsoft versions so you can take your pick depending on your intended use. If you want the best accuracy then definitely go for the pellet shooting version with its rifled barrel as you should be able to hit a quarter at 30 feet with it all day long.

Umarex Elite Force Blowback CO2 Airsoft Race Gun Field Test Review

Make sure to checkout my Table Top Video and Written Review for the Umarex Elite Force Blowback CO2 Airsoft Race Gun where I show you around this Umarex Blowback BB pistol and go over its features and specifications.

This Field Test Shooting Video Review focuses on the performance results of the Elite Force Blowback CO2 Airsoft Race Gun. I put it through its paces to see what kind of feet per second performance it can achieve using .20 gram Airsoft plastic BB's. I also perform my standard 10 shot accuracy test from a 30 foot back shooting position to see how this IPSC pistol groups on paper.

My first portion of the test, the fps velocity test I performed using my Chronograph shooting five .20 gram standard plastic Airsoft BB's with a brand new CO2. The fps for the Elite Force Blowback CO2 Airsoft Race Gun ranged from 343 to 366 fps with an average 5 shot reading of 357 feet per second. The temperature was not exactly warm on this day, just a little over 10 Degrees Celsius so I was not expecting top velocity from the Elite Force Blowback CO2 Airsoft Race Gun, even so at right around 350 fps this pistol would be perfect for close quarters Airsoft games.

Next on my Field Test Shooting check list was the accuracy portion of this review, I performed my standard 30 foot back paper target test using a semi-rested position, standing in the back with a sandbag up front to rest my hands on for stability. This position is nice and stable but not perfect so there is always some human factor to take into account and I would say I may have had a little too much caffeine on this day but I really don't think it would have made a difference as the Elite Force Blowback CO2 Airsoft Race Gun just did not want to settle down at all for me. Shots where all over the place but at least my red dot sight was relatively well centered since most shots landed on the paper. I would say I got around a 7 inch 10 shot grouping which by no means is great. I'm not even sure if the hop-up can be adjusted on this gun, if so it could improve the accuracy a bit, maybe even a different brand of Airsoft BB's could help since perhaps the fit of the Airsoft BB's I was using was not ideal?

I do have to say the trigger on the Elite Force Blowback CO2 Airsoft Race Gun is really nice, it is a true single action trigger with a fairly short take-up and a nice light release. You can really unload your magazine fast as you would expect to be able to do with an IPSC marketed pistol. The blowback is snapping and does give a nice feeling of recoil but is not overpowering which helps this pistol with follow up shots. I would like to try out some other brands of Airsoft BB's perhaps a bit heavier and perhaps a different diameter to see if I can find a brand that works better with the Elite Force Blowback CO2 Airsoft Race Gun since I really feel it has way more accuracy potential.

Umarex Colt M45 CQBP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Field Test Review

Make sure to checkout my Table Top Video and Written Review for the Umarex Colt M45 CQBP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol where I show you around this Umarex Blowback BB pistol and go over its features and specifications.

This Field Test Shooting Video Review focuses on the performance results of the Umarex Colt M45 CQBP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol. I put it through its paces to see what kind of velocity it can achieve as compared to the 400 fps Umarex claims on the packaging. I also perform my standard 10 shot accuracy test from 30 feet back to see how this action pistol groups on paper.

My first portion of the test, the feet per second velocity test I performed using my Chronograph shooting five 5.1 grain standard zinc coated steel BB's with a brand new CO2. The fps for the Umarex Colt M45 CQBP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol ranged a little from 334 to 358 fps with an average 5 shot reading of 348 feet per second. Keep in mind the temperature was not exactly warm on this day, just a little over 10 Degrees Celsius so I was not anticipating top claimed fps readings so hitting about 50 fps under claimed may be a bout right, I know for sure on a hot summer day I can expect better results.

 

Next up was the accuracy or shooting portion of this field test shooting review, I performed my standard 30 foot back paper target test using a semi rested stance standing in the back with a sandbag up front to rest my hands on for stability. This position is nice and stable but not perfect so there is always some human factor to take into account. Removing one flyer that was rather high, I was able to get a 3.5 inch grouping from my Umarex Colt M45 CQBP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol which is what I would consider about average for a blowback BB shooter, not the best but far from the worst I have shot. I am pretty sure I could do a bit better once I got used to the trigger as it does have a lot more take-up than I am use to with a 1911 and the release is a bit firmer.

A couple of observation when shooting the Umarex Colt M45 CQBP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol. I found the trigger to be noticeably longer and heavier than a standard 1911 but at least it is single action and I would say usable once taking a little time to get accustomed to it. The break point is rather deep and the release can catch you off guard but again putting some rounds through the Umarex Colt M45 CQBP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol will work much of this out. The Blowback action is not overly heavy but certainly enough to give that recoil effect. I would also suggest only placing 15 rounds in the magazine as the load of the follower spring for a full magazine can play a little havoc with the trigger.

All in all this is a nice 1911 Blowback BB pistol option especially if you are looking for a 1991 that shoots a little harder and gets more shot per CO2 than the KWC/Cybergun 1911's since you can expect fps performance in the mid to high 300's and at least an extra magazine worth of shots per CO2 from the Umarex Colt M45 CQBP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol
