Here's my review of the ASG Dan Wesson 715 revolver. I have always been a fan of this revolver from DW sins I saw a friend of my grandfather shoot one ages ago. There was just something about it I liked so when I saw this online I just had to have it, I hesitated because I don't like the trademarks ASG put on their guns so I thought about waiting to see if any asian shops would have it without trades but a christmas sale came in the shop so I picked one up. From what I saw here in Norway, there are a few versions of these in different colors and caliber. You got the steel grey and silver in 4,5mm. steel grey in 6mm and silver in 6mm but the silver are "low power version" Buying: I bought it from a Norwegian airsoft shop with express shipping. It cost on sale about 1300 NOK, that's about 149$ without shipping. And this was on sale! But with almost no competition as one of very few and the most popular airsoft shop in Norway, they can charge almost what they want. Norwegians are afraid of ordering from around the world so not much competition there either The box: It's packed in styrofoam, just your typical ASG gun really, nothing special. First impression: The first I thought was that its really heavy, 1225g the box says and I believe that. It is also a "fingerprint magnet" . The Hogue like grips with DW logo are fantastic to, hold and really thin being a revolver. A 1911 are thicker and longer, I think the finger grooves helps it feel thinner than it is, the finger grooves also makes it really comfortable to hold, fits perfect in the hand. It runs on Co2 so as every airsoft revolver like this, the gas cartridge are stored in the grip. When removing the grip plate, they included a fold-in hex to tighten the gas cartridge and it works really well. It have a small and discreet safety behind/under the hammer. It got a unique serial number on the frame. It got two screw holes under the barrel for mounting a rail thingy, some shops say this comes with the gun but I cant say I see room for that in the box. Dan Wesson's 715 is known for having a easy change barrel system, this doesn't work on the airsoft of course but it looks just like the RS, a nice little touch. Another nice touch is that the cylinder lock is moved, it's still on the left side but its moved from behind the cylinder to in front of the cylinder, takes some to get used to, I still reach for it in the wrong place. Also, the cylinder rotates with the clock, not anticlockwise like other revolvers. Trademarks: It comes with some trademarks, Dan Wesson on each side of the barrel, .357 Magnum on the right side of the barrel and your typical ASG logo and Cal.6mm BB Made in Taiwan on the right side of the frame Shooting the thing: Well this is a beast, it clocked in at about 450 fps so its really hot, I would go for the low power version if this is to be used in games. If you already got a DW revolver from ASG, the shells and speedloader is the same and works with this. So the sales point with this is that it's the first airsoft revolver with hop-up. I have only gotten to shoot it indoors so far but it works really great, there is a small hole for a small hex pn top of the barrel. (Sorry I forgot to get a picture of this) The trigger pull in double action is like your typical revolver, the trigger pull in single action is really light and there's no travel for the trigger at all. I will update here after I used it some more but so far I really like it and have to say it may be one of the nicest revolvers in my collection. Heavy, loud, powerful and with a fantastic grip. Not sure where to buy this in other countries yet but I guess it will show up in online stores soon. Edit: sorry about the blurry pictures, they get so blown up when uploaded..
