It is single action and it's the Colt Peacemaker from Umarex

I want to share the COOLEST air gun I've seen in a long time.

My new Colt Peacemaker by Umarex. What a great and fun gun this is.



I traveled to a small Upstate NY community to attend an equally small air gun show on Friday. It was well worth the trip. There were many vintage air guns. Many, with the all important "box".

There were also many new air guns. I had brought cash with me and didn't want to spend it unless it was well worth it. A trip around the show brought me back to Baker Airgun's tables. The owner, Dennis, had put me onto the show. I met his airgunsmith, Putt, tending to the tables. He saw my immediate interest in the Colt. He mentioned they had brought two, after another gentleman had seen me look it over and was now showing interest as well. The owner, Dennis Baker, came over after a while and went outside to look over the other gentleman's trade. Putt went to the shooting range with another customer and I introduced myself to Dennis. Both he and Putt were knowledgeable air gunsmiths and enthusiast's. I left the show with the Colt and some pellets Putt recommended for one of my troublesome air rifles.

This air gun is made of metal. It is finished nicely. They had only the nickel version. There is a blued version as well. I like the nickel best anyways. I had never seen one of the Colt's in person, only on the internet. Boy, it makes a great impression. It comes with six brass cartridges that are loaded into the cylinder. That's right, just like the real thing. A BB is placed at the base of each cartridge. It looks like a primer when inserted. Just as the real Peacemaker loads, bring the hammer to half cock, open the loading gate and insert the cartridges and rotate the cylinder. Close the gate and it's ready to go.







Unloading is just as easy. The ejector rod functions the same as the real gun, but is not necessary, unless you want to, as the cartridges slid out on their own.

The gun uses a single CO2 12g cartridge. The left side grip comes off. It also contains a wrench to help tighten the piercing bolt. It was simple to do.





The gun shoots pretty well. It seems to put 4 in a quarter sized hole with two flyers. Pretty regularly too. I thought it might be me, but after many tries, it's about the same all the time.





All in all, it's a really really REALLY fun gun to shoot. Loading cartridges into a realistic, weight appropriate gun is FUN! Putt mentioned they sell extra cartridges, although he didn't have any. I'll surely be ordering some. The cartridges weren't .45, more like .357 magnum plus. I would love it if Umarex made a lever gun for the same cartridges and other revolvers for this cartridge. What fun. There is a safety sliding tab under the frame. The hammer only goes completely forward after firing. Otherwise, it sits slightly back from the frame normally. I really love this fun gun.

The gun looks good, feels good shoots good, so it is GREAT.

I almost got this one a few years ago . Let me know how it shoots and how many shots you get out of a cartridge ?

The BB is held in place by friction. The "charge hole" is rubber like and you just push the BB into it. It's really simple.

Great report, Dave.

How's the trigger? Does it use regular BBs or something special? What distance were you shooting? Keep the info coming.

Beautiful looking gun. I'm not sure how something like that works. At first I thought it shot a colt long but then I saw the pic of the compressed air tube. I'll have to look it up. Anyway, absolutely great looking gun.

So far I have shot at least 60 shots on the one cartridge. My distance was 7 meters.

The trigger is very nice. Mine is smooth with absolutely no staging. It uses regular BB's. I have used new Crosman BB's and old Daisy BB's. No difference in either so far. I have only shot it in my basement range so far. I plan to move the distance back to 10 meters. But for a BB gun, I don't expect much.

I would like a pellet version too. This one is fun and I am enjoying it plenty.

I saw both the nickel and blue versions in Cabela's today for $129.
I have some gift cards coming from the ebay deal calamity Sue posted. So one could be in my future but there are a couple of other things I am wanting to buy with those cards so not sure yet.

I'm glad I took the plunge. I paid 110 for it. I'm pleased as punch that I got it. It is STILL fun to shoot. Still the same cartridge of CO2. I'm sure I'm at about 100 shots. It went through both sides of a copy paper cardboard box tonight.

I got about 100 shots or so. I used it when I could and lost track. As the cartridge got low, the shots became a bit erratic. On the last few shots, there wasn't enough to push the BB out of the brass cartridge.

I still think this is a winner. The realism is striking. I love loading and undloading the brass cartridges. I'm going to order extra cartridges as finances allow.
