    I just bought the new Black Ops 2.5 inch Exterminator revolver. I put in a standard 12 gr co2 jet. After squeezing off about 24 rounds or so, i decided to test the fps. The average result from about 12 shots using a Fidragon chronograph was 695 fps. I tested some of my other guns and they fell right in their correct ranges. The box says this gun shoots 525 fps with a .12. I measured it with .2 pellets. Any idea wtf is goin on???

    revolvers alway shoot hot. Once co2 breaks in it will go down some, they do sell low power shells though

    I think the problem is your chronograph. I have that same kind of chrono and it is far from accurate.

    If it's actually shooting that hot and it's not the chrono (which I almost just bought the same model from eBay) than that just scares me. I know some of my local fields will let you right onto the field once you arrive and won't make you chrono and that just scares me knowing how well those walmart revolvers sell where I live.

    961 FPS is not possible from an airsoft gun. Your chrono is not functioning properly. These revolvers do shoot hot, but in the conditions you're describing 695 FPS is not accurate.

    Use a different chrono and see if you get the same results.

    Maybe not from a Co2 revolver, but bolt actions can obtain 1000 FPS.

    The fidragon chrono is garbage though.

    I did mention that those chronographs are cheap and very inaccurate
