What a stunningly realistic airgun reproduction of the Tsarist Russian army's 19th-century revolver! The firearm version was developed by Belgians Leon and Emile Nagant and was later used by Soviet soldiers after the revolution.
Speedloaders were not used in those days, and cartridges were inserted singly through a loading gate. That's how soldiers reloaded their guns in the heat of battle!
You'll marvel at this revolver every time you pick it up, even if you don't have any interest in the historical aspects of the gun it copies.
Steel BBs can ricochet. The shooter and everyone in the shooting area should wear safety glasses when a gun is being handled (even if it's unloaded). Remember to remove all pets from the area, as rebounding ammo can hit them, too. Never shoot steel BBs at hard objects (including metal targets) or water, as that increases the chance of ricochet.
