"I recently purchased this gun, and it looks stunning. The feel is very real, and very pleasing to hold. Having said that, the power is lacking quite a bit. Using .20 bb's, the magnum wasn't able to penetrate a cardboard box. Even with .12's the bb's would just bounce off. If you want an intimidating gun, get this gun, everyone I war with cowers in fear when they hear the short and high pitch *pop* of this revolver. If you want a powerful gun with great aim, you'll want to stick with a 1911, and whoever said that it gets up to 596 fps, or even 490 fps, must have a similar gun, but it is not this one. I hope this helps out anyone who is looking to buy this gun."
