Crosman Vigilante CO2 Revolver

A few of us have decided to try some pistol shooting for a change , my son already had a Crosman 357 revolver and it is very accurate because of the 6 inch barrel, these guns out shoot the umarex pistols. We purchased the Crosman Vigilante version because it looked slightly different to the standard 357. On comparison the only difference is the barrel section which has weaver rail areas f you want to put a red dot sight on or a laser.

The vigilante come with 2 rotary magazines one for BBs the other for .177 pellets, the barrel is rifled so I would question why you would want to shoot BBs. You can purchase extra magazines cheaply , 3 for £8.49 is the going price. (a lot cheaper than the umarex ones )
As per the above picture the gun breaks open to remove or place the magazine, the catch is nice an solid and the barrel snaps in place nicely. There is a safety which basically slides a bar in front if the firing mechanism. you can shoot single or double action, single being the most accurate. The sights are fully adjustable. These are nice big guns and feel good in your hands they are accurate enough to shoot a 10p sized group at 10 metres, you need to use flat headed pellets in these guns I find that domes go all over . The CO2 last for about 6 magazines (60 shots)

Below are the specs on the Vigilante

  • Uses a 12-gram CO2 cartridge
  • 10rd pellet magazine
  • 6rd BB magazine
  • Single- or double-action
  • Fixed front sight
  • Fully adjustable rear sight
  • Manual safety
  • Synthetic, textured grip with finger grooves
  • Weaver rail under barrel for laser or flashlight

  • 435 fps w/lead pellets

    The only negative with these is the handles, you unclip them to get at the CO2 powerlet , they feel a bit flimsy and you feel that you might break them, however my son has had his for 2 years and they are as good as new. 

    Below is my gun and my son as a comparison, I suppose it really boils down to which one you prefer.
    for the cost of £75.00 these are damn good guns and accurate we shoot tin cans at 20 yards down the garden. Next thing we want to try is IPAS (iron plate action shooting).
