WHAT IS AN AIRSOFT REVOLVER?
Airsoft revolvers are one of the most interesting type of airsoft guns, and appeals to a special group of players who admire the beautiful lines of a six shooter. Airsoft revolvers are generally highly realistic replicas of a real revolver, and are constructed from plastic or metal. Most revolvers, with the exception of the classic Single Action Army S.A.A., have cylinders that can swing out for reloads. Some are single action while others are double action, with both modern and classic models widely represented. While airsoft revolvers are available in gas, CO2 and spring models, we have deliberately chosen not to offer airsoft revolver spring models since they struggle to deliver usable power for gaming purposes.
Popular models include the ASG Dan Wesson Airsoft Revolver CO2 line, famous for their hefty full metal construction and high power. The Colt Python Airsoft Revolver is also widely available in different variations ranging from snub nose airsoft revolvers to 6 inch barrels. The classic Smith & Wesson airsoft revolvers are represented by the M10 and M19 by Tanaka Works. One interesting model is the Chiappa Rhino airsoft revolver, which offers a much more contemporary interpretation of the revolver. For anime fans, the Mateba airsoft revolver from the series Ghost In A Shell is a collectible model that is a must have. Serious collectors who look for rare and bespoke models should not miss the Airsoft Surgeon revolver collection.

What Platforms Are Available For Airsoft Revolvers?
Airsoft revolvers are available in gas, CO2 and spring platforms. The most popular are gas and CO2 since there is no space inside a revolver to hide a gearbox, spring or piston of any kind. Spring powered revolvers do exist but they are more akin to toys since they are rely on the impact of the hammer’s striker against the BB to shoot it out. You can imagine that the power of such a spring powered platform in a revolver is quite low, and it does not create sufficient power for any kind of serious range or accuracy.
How Much Does A Good Airsoft Revolver Cost?
The range of airsoft revolvers is quite large, ranging from some die cast metal models in the sub $!00 range to mid-range airsoft revolvers in the mid hundred dollar range. You can’t really go wrong with any of these offerings, since the design of airsoft revolvers is much more simple and trouble free than a semi automatic airsoft pistol.
If you have more than $200 to spend, then you start getting into beautiful replicas by Tanaka Works with more refined details, although Japanese revolvers are made by plastic as required by law. Having said that, Japanese airsoft revolvers from Tanaka Works and Marushin have amazing surface finishing, making them look extremely realistic. This price range will also get you some unique, rare and limited edition models that are not always available.
For truly unique and one-of-a-kind collector grade airsoft revolvers, that will set you back over $1000 with custom crafted pieces from Airsoft Surgeon. Some of these masterpieces sport CNC steel and aluminum components to offer another level of realism and refinement.
