I have had this gun for a couple of years now,and have done sevral things to it.1 removed the ruber but at the end of the stock,drilled holes in it big enough to pack with cut up clothing filled the whole stock with it and put the ruber but back on ,This cut down alot on that loud hollow plastic ringing in your ear after everyshot.2the break barrel was so stiff just breaking the thing was chore,filled that so it breaks open easier.3the stock was so long it had these flimsy flaps at the end pinched my fingers on them many times ,so I cut them off just behind the screws,Much more leaner now.The trigger is stiff on this gun,but this gun is lethal and well built will take alot of shots to smooth out but a very powerful rifle for under 100 dollars just have to work it

For first time shooters i believe this is a good start. I’ve owned mine since i was sixteen and it has never failed. Even after four and a half years in the closet while i was in the marines it fired just as true and solid as it did when i bought it. easy to modify ie interchangeable barrel sights and dove tail over the breach. it has a decent bb hopper capacity of about 50 bbs. you do have to pump 10 times to capacity but if you’re shooting within 30 yards i find 3 pumps is enough for paper targets. I believe i could easily pass this down to my son or daughter and know that it would still put rounds on target.

I bought this gun at Bass pro the day it came out and it is and OK gun.

Pros:Powerful, and accurate(if you can sight it in consitently) Its good for pest control.

Cons:Scope, Screws, and thats about it off the top of my head.

I would suggest tighting the screws as tight as possible about every 100-150 shots. I really suggest that you replace the scope. I just replaced the scope on mine yesterday and it is awsome! the scope thats comes in the package is very sensitive to weather changes. Example: I sighted it in, took it in the hgouse for an hour, came back out and had to resight it back in. the scope is also poorly manufactured and is cheap. I replaced mine with a Bushnell, same zoom and i can see everything clearer and hit more accuratly.

Had the gun sine 2006. bought from walmart. had trouble being a good shooter at first and like others also had trouble with the scope coming loose but with a little filling of the scope mount edges, some carefull installing, and tightening down with ide guess 5 ft/lbs of torgue they have not come loose since. Ive put probably 1000 pellets through it. My only problem i have is accuracy, it seems that atleast for me im only able to get a consisten dime size cluster from 50 ft tops.

I think the newer versions of these rifles (1000s) are a bit better than the older ones. They are loud partly because of the hollow plastic stock and because also with very light pellets it can launch them supersonic. Recoil is kind of harsh for an air rifle but that is not a big deal for me personally. My rifle has been very accurate with the stock fiber optic sights and also with the 3×9 scope that came with the gun. I have read alot of complaints about the scope comming off or getting lose after shooting and this is true in part because of the stiff recoil. I check for screw tightness after each shot and therefore it has not been much of a problem. Please note that springer airguns should not be held tightly like a regular rifle. Holding it losely in your hands and letting it jump will help acheive better accuracy. This rifle is very powerful. I have not chronographed it but I know from shooting at various objects that it is a screamer. It is sort of hard to cock but should not be too difficult for most adults and probably was intentionally made that way to help keep children from being able to cock it because of its power. I have not shot this gun a lot (less than 200 times) but so far no problems. It is definitely cheaply made but it also has a cheap price tag. Maybe I just lucked up and got the good one but I like it.

Bought a remanufactured one from SportsmansGuide.com for $69.99. I knew the rifle was used but thought I would be able to use it at least and wasn’t worried about a few cosmetic scratches since I got it so cheap. After putting only three pellets down the barrel the cheap plastic stock shattered in my hands on the third shot and it got sent back for a refund. I read a lot of reviews from people that said they like this rifle and maybe it is a good shooter but I can’t do much shooting without a stock !!

Look, there are a few drawbacks to this rifle:

Loud

AWFUL trigger pull

lots of recoil

need to buy a 1 pc scope mount

WELL WORTH THE wait! I’ve owned mine for over 3 years and fire it daily. I spent the time to get my money out of this rifle and it was a real pain at times. I went thru scope mount after scope mount untill I got one that stayed on.

Also, find a heavier pellet than the crappy Daisy precision max or crossman Wal-Mart special. The heavies fly better in this high power.

Recoil is manageable and you have to hold the front end LOOSER not TIGHTER. Let the gun buck when it fires.

I can circumsize a gnat a 50yards with this thing!

aLSO, lose the powerline 3-9×32 factory scope-it sucks.

This rifle will take about 2500 shots to smooth out the 12lb trigger pull!!No lie, I called Daisy to complain and they are replacing the trigger and the stock for FREE!! 3 years after I bought it!! The tech told me that my gun was made with the “old” trigger and that it had a 12lb pull, since then they have gone to a 3lb trigger pull system adn he would replace mine for free!!!!

This rifle will require a substantial TIME investment, but even with the “old” trigger still in my rifle(and nowhere near 12lbs of pull)it is LETHAL!!!!!

Yeah sure its cheap but even with a bit of tweaking to the mounts after I found the scope would not sight in because the mounts moved. Then I realized the scope was trash so I put onn a BSA 4x-32 this made a little improvement but not much at 20 yards it was holding 2 to 3 inch groups ctc which is absolute crap. Then I took the scope off but I couldn’t get them sighted in either because they were also crap but at least they were tru-glo. DON’T BUY IT!

I bought my gun from WalMart for just under 100. Out of the box it looked wonderful and for the price, with an included 3-9 scope, it looked as if it was too good to be true. The first thing I noticed was how hollow the stock sounded. Tapping it with my fingers it sounded like a hollow wooden door. Also the butt plate was very stiff and didn’t do much for padding against the kick. Like others have said, the scope mounts are not usable with the gun. Do yourself and the scope a favor, and buy a 15$ 1peice mount.

The gun is very loud, for an airgun. If your buying it for use in a basement or residential apparement, be aware that the gun is failry loud, like the person before me said, it sounds like a nailgun being fired into a block of wood.

I don’t know if I got a bad gun, or if the climate that I use/store it in affected it (Hawaii). But the gun started falling apart almost immediately. The first thing was the side screws holding the stock to the gun. Every 10 shots or so I would need to tighten them because they would wobble loose. The next thing, about a month after, the screw holding the scope stop snapped completely in half! A part of the screw was still in the hole and the other part was attached to the scope stop. The next thing that happened was the rear sight screw also came loose and got lost somewhere in a grassy field. Then the screws that hold the stock to the gun lost their threading, well actually the screw hole. The screws and any screws for that matter were unusable to keep the gun together.

Like I said, I might’ve just got a bad gun, or it might’ve been the climate im in. But it seems like a good gun for the price and power. If you have a small budget but are still looking for a high powered springer, this might be a good choice for you, if the gun doesnt fall apart.

I bought it earlier today. It is hard to cock, but gets easier as you get used to the motion. When shot, it sounds like a nail-gun. Kick? C’mon people. Nothing. It took me 20 minutes to site it in…deadly accurate at 50 feet (the distance I’ll most be using in my area). The bullet foot pounds per second are nasty…this is a real gun. Varmints won’t stand a chance against it.
If you want to shoot all day, this is not the gun for you. If you want to occasionally shoot a varmint or shoot 30-40 rounds, this gun seems to fit the bill.
