Remarkably inaccurate! With three pumps, using the open sights and a bench rest, a 5 shot group at 10 yards (only!) typically has 4 inch diameter. Five pumps has no discernable effect on accuracy or precision. Sure, it’s an inexpensive air rifle, but I expect considerably better than this. My 30 year old Daisy Red Rider puts 9/10 shots in a 1″ circle under the same circumstances. I’ll give it one thumb up for not losing air…yet!

I purchased the 901 for my nephew,in a atempt to interest him in something other than his video games. The gun was very inacurate and difficult to load. The bb’s would not fit well in to the loading door,I could hit a coke can 2 out of 5 shots. Very poor quality.

Traded it for a 880, they work well. Cheap plastics, but, work well.

I’ve had two of these rifles. Both started losing air after 2 or 3 months. On the 4th pump you can hear air escaping. Neither would hold 10 pumps for more than 2 minutes when new. Oiling did not remedy this problem. After 5 minutes they hardly had enough pressure left to get the pellet out the end of the barrel. Not good when shooting squirrels!

The barrels on both were noticibly out of line with the stock. My scope was difficult to sight in because of this.

Both were accurate after getting them sighted in. I could repeatedly hit a dime size bulls eye at 20 yards with 10 pumps from a rest.

I called Daisy and they said to send the last one back and they would replace it – even paying for shipping both ways. Since they said that no engineering changes have been made to this rifle, I opted not to have it replaced.

With a Tasco 4X32 scope on this air rifle I shot a 1/2 inch 5 shot group at 35 yards today. This is a good target rifle and with ten pumps also will do well at starling eradication as well. It should do well for others pest too.
I would highly recommend it for the beginning target shooter. This gun is not for hunting but it is a great gun for plinking. It is one of the best guns for beginners. It is good to teach young kids gun safety. Beginners
