    That's a highly modified revolver, modified for speed.

    For example, the steel cylinder has been replaced with an aluminum one so it rotates faster.

    The trigger pull has been ground down to maybe 1.5 lbs.

    Still, that video is *****in'

    I still have the 1999 article from the SW Magazine. The revolvers were standard Performance Center 627 and 625, the same ones that he uses when he competes. All shots were fired double action. I don't think you can ignite any primer with 1.5-lb trigger pull in double action.

    If I'm not mistaken, I've seen him shoot at the Indiana State Match held in Kentucky in Sept. 2004. That guy is super fast with a revolver. Also saw Julie Goloski there.

    Using leaf type mainspring, yeah. But using coil type is another matter.

    On a 1911 open gun, notwithstanding bragging, it really can be done. I never tried with a revolver though.

    The SW PC 625 and 627 are coil type and I am not aware of any double action revolvers that use leaf type mainspring. Maybe I am behind the power curve here but I thought only 1911-type pistols (maybe BHP too?) use leaf type springs.

    Maybe with a 1-1.5 lb. trigger pull single action? Please bear in mind that he fired all his shots in DA using standard production Performance Center revolvers. I haven't measured the DA pull on my PC 627, but I am guessing it's 6.5-7 lbs.

    Gentlemen,

    Mr Miculek does extensive mods on his revolver himself.
    Trust me on that one.

    I scanned the two articles (from SW Handguns 2000 and Guns and Ammo 2000 Annual Handguns) in .pdf. If anyone is interested in reading them, email me here at GT or PM me your email address and I will send them to you. It's quite interesting on how and why they did it, the equipment used, etc. BTW Ed McGivern held the record for the longest time before JM broke it.

    Most standard S&W revolvers use leaf type mainspring. Most K, L and N frame does. I've read though that SW PC guns uses coil type mainsprings that's why they are able to lighten that trigger pulls that low.

    I wonder if somebody has an airsoft revolver and do an experiment.

    Without the reload of course.

    1911 single stack, yes with reload it can be done with targets at about 7 meters if memory serves me right.

    Surely revolvers are harder to do in that speed. Hats off to that guy using the revolver...Unless his revolver is actually a mini gatling gun...:thumbsup:
