I have been looking for one of these to add to my collection. I REALLY wanted the Colt Python 2.5" one but after weeks of looking online I am convinced they are simply out of circulation?

I see the Dan Wesson chrome one on Amazon but it seems that the Colt Python was a better version for various reasons... so I guess I will ask does anyone know where I can get a "better quality" 2.5" revolver in BB form?

Or maybe I will also ask if I should just go with the Dan Wesson one on Amazon for $145? I would go $200 for the Colt at this point but I can only find the 6" one...

Cheers!

I dislike the rotary mag on the Pythons. The DW looks far superior in my opinion.

The DW are OK shooters, but they really shine in the fit and finish dept. From 5 feet my 2.5" nickel DW snub is very realistic looking.

I HAVE had issues with the crane possibly being slightly bent as it must be closed a certain way (pressure near the bottom of the cylinder opposite side) and the little snub shoots high. My other ones dont.

I mitigated the problem by using copper coated lead bb's which are far heavier (lower point of impact).

The pellet versions are weak, but this is easily fixed. Be advised if you do the simple modifications found online, you want to make certain they stay below 500fps. My 6" pellet was doing a very weak 300fps. May as well throw the pistol at the target....

Even with an RPAL I dont want some unregistered "handgun" in my possession, so chronograph and adjust to 425 or 450 which gets you a reasonably flat trajectory at short pistol (airgun) range.

Try the DW....if you dont like it I'll buy it off you :) How can you lose with an offer like that? :) :)

I also have the 2.5" DW snub nose revolver and the only downside is it shoots high as well. Even with the elevation on the rear sight adjusted, it still shoots slightly high. Other than that, I like the weight, feel and looks of this revolver. If you are getting free shipping, go with the DW.
