Thought I do a short review/ overview of my Marushin Constrictor gas revolver. I bought this gun at a Norwegian airsoft shop and felt I paid way to much but I didn't find it in stock at any asian shops and it was kinda an impulse buy cause I just wanted something shiny, and shiny it was! Taking it out of the box, the first thing you notice is its weight, it's close to 1,2 kg without the shells and it's big, I mean very big. I was surprised at the weight knowing it's from Marushin and probably made of plastic but the internals, hammer, trigger and things that needs to be metal is metal. The middle part where the barrel sits are plastic but the top and bottom part of the barrel are also metal, the cylinder, main body and grips are plastic. This is the X-cartridge, 6mm version, the shells are also big and heavy, they are almost another 210g to this gun with all 6 inserted. It also sports some trademarks, given it's built on the Marushin Colt Anaconda, Colt were cool enough to let this be licensed even tho, from what I can find, isn't a real revolver. It have the horse on the left side and Colt emblem on each side of the grip. It also have the Marushin trades. Final thoughts: I have yet to try it, I ran out of green gas the previous day and forgot to order more when getting this. Is this skirmishable? I would say no, the size of this makes it more a collectors item, finding a holster for this would be pretty hard to I imagine. It is a fantastic fingerprint magnet. When dry fire it right out of the box, it had some problems rotating the cylinder but works 100% after a while, the double-action had to be used a couple of times, no problems in single-action. Was it worth the money? I bought is just for my collection and have no plans using it in battle, but just from the badass feeling you get from handling it and the sheer look of it, absolutely.
