Airsoft revolvers are one sporting item that’s just plain fun to have. For collectors and target and practice shooters alike, these guns have become an incredibly popular sporting goods item. There are many different kinds of pellets and bullets that can be used for them as well as custom loaders, some of which look like actual bullets. You can even use them in paintball battle, which has become a trending hobby with some people, and these guns are sometimes favored over traditional paintball guns simply for their accuracy and the fact that they look and feel like the real thing.
Having one may not be a necessity, but you may still have to have one for the sheer sport of it. Along with the revolvers, you can also purchase targets, which also come in many different types and forms and some of the CO2 models can shoot either BB’s or pellets, depending on the make of the gun. They cannot, however, shoot both kinds of bullets at the same time.
These are also great if you enjoy practice shooting but you do not want to waste bullets doing so. It is a nice way to hone your skill, sharpen your aim and be a better expert shooter without actually having to handle a real firearm. The great thing about these kinds of guns is that they most often have the same weight and feel of the “real thing”, so practicing with them is actually much like practicing with the real gun, whether it be a snubnose .38, a .357 caliber or something else all together.

TSD Sports UA941B 8 Inch Spring Powered Airsoft Revolver Review
First, we will review the TSD Sports UA941B 8 Inch Spring Powered Airsoft Revolver.

Or there is a “double action” availability with each pull of the trigger, just like you have with a real revolver. Made from high quality plastic, this airsoft spring revolver carries the excellent quality and performance known to come from TSD Sports.

937 UHC 4 Inch Revolver Airsoft Gun Review
The 937 UHC 4 Inch Revolver Airsoft Gun looks a lot like some of the real snub-nose models of a .38. It shoots 6mm BB’s from replica shells at a velocity of 240 FPS. This full sized replica handgun holds a full six rounds of ammunition at a 1:1 replica size with cylinder swivel, it loads like a real gun. You can cock it with the hammer, the rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation and it has a colored front sight for easy sighting.
During game play with this particular model, the bullets will travel about thirty feet before beginning to drop off. For a single-shot spring gun, the price is fair and it is the same size as a .38 Magnum Snub, but much lighter. Though it is made of plastic, it is a good sturdy plastic and durable for its size. It is recommended that .12 BB’s not be used, as they have no accuracy at that size through this gun. The gun body and grip both have a satin finish with an orange muzzle.

My Vote for Best Revolver Airsoft Gun
My favorite pick of these five is going to be the Black Ops Snubnose Revolver. The size of the gun makes it incredibly easy to carry and the CO2 power packs a great punch at about 440 FPS.
The realistic feel and recoil action make it great when target practicing for the real thing, while at the same time, saving precious real live rounds. Being able to practice with something that feels just like the real thing is helpful in that it does not give you a false feel once you have the real thing in your hand.
The addition of the tactical rail is a great choice, as it gives the gun an even more realistic touch as well as added aiming ability. The safety can be manually turned on or off, which is also good so that you will not come up surprised one way or the other.
This airsoft gun revolver shoots 6mm BB’s, which are common among these types of guns and fairly easy to come by. BB’s are not expensive, even in bulk, which might actually make them cheaper, so target practice is even easier, knowing that you are not breaking the bank.
