I purchased this old style 6 shooter for my wife, since she had wanted one since a child.
We've been to the range twice with this revolver, shooting about 220 rounds with it so far. It's really fun to shoot (she let me try it twice)!
While it might take a little longer to shoot each round, since the hammer must be cocked back before each shot, and each empty 22LR shell must be ejected manually (built in ejector works really well), it is more realistic, more true to the original cowboy 6-shooter. My wife said it's quite accurate also. You have to get used to aiming it and holding it correctly, just like with any new, unfamiliar pistol. Unlike the original colt, it has a built-in safety lever, making it impossible to fire while the safety is on.
It's easy to clean, she says, since the cylinder comes out easily for cleaning.
Sure beats the cost of shooting with expensive ammo, so it's more fun, knowing that you're not breaking the bank with 22 LR ammo.
