    Solid starter pistol kit
    May 5, 2021
    Sturdy construction, perhaps more than needed for a starter pistol. Large grips make it easy to handle. Kit is a good buy as it includes a well-made holster.
    • Solid construction
    • Good rubber grips
    • A bit heavy and bulky
    • Given the size, should be an 8-shot cylinder

    Alpha pistol starter kit.
    May 10, 2023
    The Alpha pistol performs very well with both .22 short blanks and the small "acorn" blanks I am currently using with my lab pup. I'm glad I got the starter kit with the holster because at 1.5lbs the pistol is heavier than I would ever wear on a lanyard around my neck. The strap on the holster was too short to fit over the back of the hammer of the pistol and snap in place. But by rubbing water into the strap I was able to stretch it so it would snap in place. Once dried I rubbed in a good coat of mink oil on the strap and the and the rest of the holster..
    • Works great with different size blanks and always fires regardless of the direction I'm holding the pistol (up, down or to the side).
    • A little heavy but the holster addresses this issue.

    Performs as well as I had hoped.
    • Smooth action, clean trigger pull.
    • Hard to load tiny blanks.

    Very nice, well made pistol. Wish it could've been an 8 shot due to its size, but other than that, I'm very pleased.

    Training my golden for senior hunt trials and after I hit the order send remembered I needed to replace my training pistol. I emailed them, they added it immediately to my order so I did not have to pay additional shipping and it arrived quick. I love the ability of reaching Gun Dog Supply via email if I need to add anything that I forgot. You can’t do that anywhere else. They were right on it and shipped it immediately and I didn’t have any interruption in my training.

    High quality blank pistol
    June 13, 2022
    Read Steve's comments and other's reviews before I made the purchase.

    They were spot on. The Alpha 22 is a well made blank pistol. Feels real solid in your hand. The sheath was also a good move. I keep the pistol on my belt when training the dog.

    I bought the 22 shorts which is all that was in stock for the blanks. Since I've never used the long blanks I don't have a comparison. But the shorts get the job done. Plenty loud enough to freeze the dog.

    This is not a budget pistol. But cry once and you'll be happy for a long time.

    Nice Field Trial/Training blank pistol.
    January 28, 2022
    Everything is great except the case does not close properly when the pistol is in the holster. Had to remove some of the foam padding and it is still not closing properly. The plastic is also a little to light weight (cheap). Will have to go purchase a more rugged case.
    • Nice heavy pistol. Not cheap.
    • Case is lightweight and doesn't close properly when pistol is in holster.

    Looks very well made

    Pistol looks very well made, however, I returned it because I found the pistol I thought I lost before it came it.

    Fantastic service!

    I recently ordered a blank practice pistol and ammo. The service was great and I received the product in just two days!! I received a follow-up call in twenty four hours which impressed me. Thanks Gun Dog Supply for your expedient attention!

    Well made but a bit heavy

    This pistol is very well made and will probably last forever, but I wish it was a little lighter.
    • Well made, handles well

    Review for Alfa .22 Blank Pistol Starter Kit
    September 29, 2016
    The starter pistol itself is great. You can tell it's a quality pistol that will last a lifetime the second you first hold it. But the holster that came with the kit is garbage. The snap on the inside of the holster is in a place that scratches the side of the gun, then the first time I was able to force the gun all the way into the holster to be able to snap the strap closed securing the gun, the snap broke. I had to order the nylon holster Gun Dog Supply offers as a suitable replacement.

    This is by far the nicest blank pistol I have found on the market. It is heavy, well built and excellent quality. The package with holster is a MUST and a great value! I am beyond happy with this purchase. Gun Dog Supply is the BEST!

    This is very true to life as far as blank guns go. I love it and it's loud. It comes with a holster and case!!! Hopefully only going to use it a few times for a JH test, but definitely recommend!

    Great deal on the whole package including holster. I would recommend this to friends. I especially like the orange grip as a safety feature. A big plus for me is it can fire full-size blanks which I can pick up very inexpensively at Home Depot or Lowe's.
    Review for Alfa .22 Blank Pistol Starter Kit
    February 11, 2016
    Product was as described. Appears to be very well made using good materials resulting in a relatively heavy, but nicely balanced/easy to handle pistol. Easy to load and unload. Trigger pull is very good...similar to my Ruger .22 revolver when cocking/firing single action, and a pound or so more when pulling trigger for double action firing. No misfires, handles the short acorn blanks and longer .22 blanks with no problem. It is suggested to point the pistol down when firing the acorn blanks as they may displace out of the cylinder ...that is what I have done with no misfires...haven't tried firing in any other position. Holster is well made of thick leather (stiff but is breaking in OK with leather conditioner and use). There is an extra snap on the back of the belt loop side of the holster that I haven't figured out its use, but otherwise a very solid and useful holster. It was also nice that everything arrived sooner than expected. Gun Dog Supply is very easy to do business with, they follow up to insure all is OK and they have good price/value compared to other product sources.

    Top notch blank kit. The Alfa pistol has both the weight and feel of a real weapon. Makes use and cleaning easy. Self-ejects to reload. Kit includes holster, case and cleaning brush that saves $. Perfect for gun dog training.

    First rate pistol, no different than a fine revolver. Ejector is a nice addition. Much louder than old pistol with same loads. Double action works smoothly. Lanyard ring is very handy. I lose pistols regularly even with the holster.

    Works like a champ! Many of my compadres are having trouble finding crimps to use. Someone told me about some 22 cal. blanks you can get at the big box stores that are used for nail guns. Those work slick as can be. Great service from you folks! Thanks for everything you do! Doug
