Trigger Pull: The ASG Dan Wesson 2.5 inch Gold CO2 BB Revolver shoots in true modern revolver style offering single and double action. The double action has a bit of friction to it since the cylinder is being rotate during the first part of the trigger pull and there is a spring fed metal gasket between the barrel and the cylinder that creates a seal but does add some resistance to the trigger pull in double action. Single action is much lighter as expected since pulling the hammer back turns the cylinder removing that friction point from the equasion.

Accuracy: Here we go with the Velocity test! We placed a brand new CO2 in the ASG Dan Wesson 2.5 inch Gold CO2 BB Revolver and shot a cylinder full of 4.5mm steel BB’s that weigh 5.1 grain through our Chronograph. The temperature was average so about room temperature. Only the last 4 of my shots registered on our Chronograph as it was acting up a bit on me at first two shots but we did manage to average 332 fps with the last four. The first two shots would have been a little bit faster had they registered on my chronograph so this may have brought up the average a bit to say around 334. We then placed a fresh paper target 30 feet down range and proceeded to unload a full 6 round cylinder into it, we were shooting in single action with the hammer cocked back between shots. We were also using a semi rested shooting position with our hands resting on a sand bag up front and seated in the back for stability. Generally speaking even with Steel BB’s we can get close to a 1-2 inch grouping with hess Dan Wessons but this time our 6 shot grouping only produced a 3 inch group? It was probably ours as there is always some human error involved and each test can result in different results so keep that in mind. The grouping was well centered out of the box but the ASG Dan Wesson 2.5 inch Gold CO2 BB Revolver does have fully adjustable sights in case yours is a bit off.

Build Quality: The ASG Dan Wesson 2.5 inch Gold CO2 BB Revolver overall is really well built with good weight to it and a nice fit and finish, we do like the Gold version in this 2.5 inch version. It is almost all metal with the exception of the grips which are made of a semi hard plastic. One beef we have with the original ASG Dan Wesson line of revolvers are how the grips slide back to access the CO2, closing them can be a bit of a chore as they can come off their track super easily. The other complaint we hear about them is the play in the trigger and hammer side to side.

Realism: The ASG Dan Wesson 2.5 inch Gold CO2 BB Revolver like all the other ASG Dan Wesson Revolvers is very realistic with its realistic pop out cylinder and 6 removable shells you can reuse and load up for numerous rounds of shooting. You can also buy additional shells and have them preloaded and ready to go in the Speed loader to speed things up. Two things about the ASG Dan Wesson 2.5 inch Gold CO2 BB Revolver that take away a bit from the realism would be the non recessed barrel and the rather large space in front of the hammer. A real steel Dan Wesson or even most revolvers do not have this large space. We believe they did this to allow for the internal valve system. The newer Dan Wesson 715 however was designed with a smaller space in front of the hammer.

Pros:

  • It's a revolver with actual shells! Gives you the feeling of a real 6 shooter.
  • Almost all metal design with good weight and feel.
  • Lots of detail in this gun, very well made, fit and finish is very good.
  • Good power and good accuracy. (going off of already done older reviews)
  • Fully adjustable rear sight for windage and elevation.
  • Can add the included accessory rail for more options (optical or red dot sight…).
  • Dan Wesson licensed via ASG.
  • Gold finish is unique. (Gold is the Best!)
  • Moulded and textured pistol grips.
  • Grips fully hide CO2 screw.
  • Can shoot in both double and single action for action shooting and more accurate shot placement.

Cons:

  • Plastic CO2 screw tab.
  • Plastic grip setup can be a bit awkward to close.
  • 2.5 inch does not have the recessed barrel.
  • Hammer and trigger are a bit sloppy compared to 715 version.

Comments: It’s been a while since we reviewed one of the first generation ASG Dan Wesson Revolvers and the ASG Dan Wesson 2.5 inch Gold CO2 BB Revolver does bring back some memories for me going back almost a decade. If we not mistaken this revolver was the first one to implement actual removable and reloadable shells making Airgun Replica Revolvers a lot more interesting and realistic! We do kind of prefer the newer 715 version as they are even beefier than the original ASG Dan Wessons and ASG has fixed the sloppy hammer and trigger along with the space in front of the hammer has been reduce making the 715 even that much more realistic.

FPS: 327 I have made a fair amount of video reviews for the Dan Wesson Line of AIrguns that encompass Table Top and Field Test Reviews on several versions of the Dan Wesson line: BB, Pellet, Airsoft, in a variety of barrel and color choices. It has been a while, so why not make another Review Video to revisit the Dan Wesson Line and so this time here we have the Steel BB version in a 2.5 inch barrel length. As always I will test they CO2 Revolver to find out what the velocity is and how accurate it is shooting at a paper target. Also make sure to watch my Table Top Video for specifications, details and closeup video..
