Umarex Colt Peacemaker Air Gun Review [Updated for 2020]

Umarex Colt Peacemaker Air Gun Review

On October 26, 1881, shots rang out at the O.K. Corral.  Within 30 seconds, three members of the Clanton gang were killed and Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and Billy Clanton, would become legends because of what happened in Tombstone, Arizona.   Another legend was born that day....the Colt "Peacemaker".

The Umarex Colt Peacemaker nailed every detail of the real-thing down to the exact weight.  This gun is the epitome of what an airgun replica should close to the real thing as you can get.

If you are looking for an authentic airsoft version of a Clint Eastwood six-shooter...THIS. IS. IT.  Colt has NAILED it with this gun.  Looks shockingly like the real thing (except cheaper to shoot!).  This is the gun that won the West.

In this review article, we will go over the key characteristics of the ​Umarex Colt Peacemaker Air Gun

The Umarex Colt Peacemaker  is a BB-cartridge-loading revolver. In addition, it is a Single Action Army (SAA) revolver and it looks and feels exactly like the legendary Colt Peacemaker. This pellet gun pistol also has some features that are similar to those of the famous .45 Colt Peacemaker sidearm.

The Peacemaker is simply put...beautifully constructed.  No detail was spared in making this gun as lifelike as the real deal.  The pistol is made by Umarex Sportwaffen GmbH & Co. KG is originally a Germany-based manufacturer of air guns, tear gas and signal pistols.  Their US subsidiary is simply called Umarex  USA which has been making top quality pellet guns in the US since 2006.  They bring all the best of German engineering to the palm of your hand.

Make no mistake...this is not a toy six-shooter.  One of the key features of this gun is that the weight and balance are exactly the same as the original.  This is exactly like holding the same gun that Doc Holiday used at the O.K. Corral.

Overall, the key features of the Peacemaker are:

  • All metal frame
  • 6-shot BB pistol
  • ​Fixed front sights
  • ​Length: 10.75"
  • ​Barrel: 5"
  • Weight: 2 lbs.
  • Capacity: 6-shot
  • ​Caliber: .177
  • CO2 cannister in the grip
  • Colt Single Action - Blued version

The Umarex Colt Peacemaker is designed for those who value an authentic look in pellet guns coupled with high functionality.  With its bad-ass look, this gun is a sensation among modern shooters.

Now, all that said, there are some drawbacks.  Firstly, the grips are plastic.  They're designed to look like ivory (and they do) but there could be some slippage while holding it.  Also, it's a smooth bore barrel that shoots only BB's so don't expect huge accuracy at 60 feet out.  But for quick-draw, close-range shooting then this is unbeatable.  

What can you expect?

This pellet pistol is the replica of one of the most iconic firearms in the US history. The original gun was introduced back in 1837. This Umarex Colt Peacemaker Air Gun is a perfect embodiment of the famous Colt Peacemaker.

The controls of this Umarex Colt Peacemaker  are very reliable. When cocking back the hammer of this pellet pistol, you will hear three clicks as cylinder rotates and trigger resets - just like the real thing. Once the loading gate is opened and the ejection rod slides back, empty shells drop out - just like the real thing.  The trigger breaks sharp and everything feels simply...100% like the real deal.  But don't take our word for what a real Wild-West re-enactor has to say.
