If your're going to buy any toy guns make sure it's a Lone Star as they last for years. I don't mind that they don't do a metal rifle any more (probably prohibitive cost of raw materials) because the detail and mechanism (which is still metal) are top class! My two dakota rifles have been shooting for about 6 years now and still look and sound amazing.

Bought this rifle for my grandson he is 6yrs old and he shoots me with it endlessly the rifle is pretty good quality the trigger is not metal but its a soild hard plastic and its getting a lot of hammer! it has a scope and strap, the caps dont bang like they used to but they give off smoke like real rifles do so I have tosay it should last longer than most of his guns hopefully.so I give it 5stars.

My boy wanted a cowboy rifle and it was likely to be this or the Arizona. He liked the idea of the scope, which turns out to be readily detachable, so I ordered the Dakota. Incidentally the illustration used may show the scope on back to front and placing it the correct way round might have prevented the problem that the other customer had. If the illustration suggests that it has traditional Lone-Star heavy engraving then that is a trick of the light it has a more realistic plainer finish, albeit in plastic though at least not in a stupid colour. Sadly the caps mentioned in the description were not provided but I was able to find some locally. As with many things the paper roll caps simply do not measure up to the quality of days gone by and there is no report as such, just a bit of a spark and wisps of smoke, the click of the mechanism is just as loud as the cap "bang". We found that the caps did not feed reliably if the hammer was manually cocked but that pulling straight through on the trigger "double action" worked ok. If you need a bang then get something that uses plastic caps (such as the Arizona), if you want a more realistic appearance and/or a detachable scope then the Dakota is better. Much played with at the moment. A shame that toy Winchesters rarely have a working lever as the shape and size is crying out for a Lone-Star / Sekiden hybrid design.

I was disappointed to find this toy was all plastic. In fact, I immediately bought another (metal) rifle elsewhere, expecting the plastic to break very quickly.
To my surprise, it's very durable. The replacement metal one has broken, instead!
It's quite small and the paper strip caps of today are useless. It's a bit expensive for what you get. However, my little boy loves it and is very pleased with the "telescopic sight"!

Bought this rifle for 4 year old. We had tears within first few minutes as he had cocked gun then put stock up to his face to look through scope - when he pulled the trigger the firing section closed onto his cheek causing him pain and shock. The gun was thrown to the floor and the scope broke off - problem solved. Gun still in use and lasting well.

Our son loves wearing the strapped gun over his shoulder whilst in his army uniform.

Caps are a little tricky to load up but once in line fire well.

Check you can obtain caps in your area before purchasing and your child should have lots of imaginative fun.

The toy rifle is made of plastic. In the advertised image, the toy appears to be manufactured of metal due to the black/metallic finish. The plastic is of the brittle type and in my opinion, will not last very long in the hands of boisterous children. I was very disappointed when I opened the packaging as I was under the impression that the toy was made of die cast metal and the fact that it is plastic was NOT made clear in the product description. As the toy rifle is plastic, I regard it as extremely poor value for the price that I paid. I'm not at all happy. The product description MUST make the fact clear that the toy is ALL plastic.

Toy arrived before estimated delivery date which was great. It was good value for money and my son is having lots of fun with it.
