Make My Day! The S&W M29 CO2 BB Revolver
A new announcement from Umarex USA is the S&W M29 CO2 BB Revolver. This impressive-looking new airgun will be available in late June/July 2021. HAM is planning to have a test review for you well ahead of that date…
The single/double action M29 is specified with a Muzzle Velocity of up to 415 FPS. Combined with a claimed 80+ shots from one 12 Gram CO2 cartridge, that sounds like pretty impressive performance!
There’s a realistic, swing-out cylinder that hold 6 cartridges, each one holding a BB. After shooting, you can use the functioning ejector to prepare for re-loading.
The fixed post front sight is combined with an adjustable rear sight. Then – of course – there’s that famous long, 8.375-Inch barrel that’s a trademark of the M29.
The synthetic grips have the amazingly-realistic printed wood effect that’s becoming common on replica BB guns now. That makes for an overall look that matches the centerfire original very well.
Other than the grips, the S&W M29 CO2 BB Revolver is a full-metal handful, with a weight of 2.1 Lbs. The manufacturer promises that this will be an extremely accurate version of the centerfire original and it certainly looks like it from the photographs!
As .177 caliber steel BBs are hugely less expensive and much more readily available than 44 Magnum firearms ammo at the present time, this CO2-powered revolver is a great way to experience shooting this famous revolver at home. It’s also A LOT quieter!
If you can’t wait, the S&W M29 CO2 BB Revolver is already available for advanced ordering from Pyramyd Air and Airgun Depot. The Street Price is $149.99, while the warranty is the usual 90-day coverage from Umarex USA.
