i bought this gun today. it works great it said on the owners manual that it was going to be noisy and off target till you put at least 100 pellets threw it. when i shot it it was not loud and after sighting it in with 10 shot i put three shots in a bottle cap from 40 yards it is a great gun. but there is two things it would fix. i would put a better scope and the first time i cocked it was really hard but then easy after a few times of cocking it
Great air rifle for adults! Be sure and unwrap the center-point scope carefully and then walk over and gingerly and gently PUT IT IN THE TRASH! it's GARBAGE! This scope looks awesome, has great features and a mil- dot reticle but it broke internally after 50 shots or so and would not hold zero. I bought a Tasco 30MM red dot sight and now it shoots M.O.S. (Minute of Squirrel) AT all reasonable ranges-AWESOME! A trigger upgrade is available on line from Charlie D Tuna for around $25 and it takes ... this rifle to the next level of performance. A hit almost anywhere in the torso sends Mr. Squirrelly straight to Squirrel-dise.
I love these guns, but you need to know a few things to fix to get the most out of them. Mine had the black paint overspray inside the front of the barrel. It needs to be removed with a Q tip and solvent to get the best accuracy. If you like to do your own gun work, there are instructions on internet airgun forums to make the gun much easier to pump. I did the one that changes the one heavy valve spring to a two spring set with a lighter inlet valve spring. This is so simple it should be done at ... the factory. Has the same power with a lot less effort to pump.
Best price anywhere! Bought to supplement a more powerful air gun. Used for pest control at ranges under 30 yards. Same basic gun being made for decades. Reliable, hard hitting, and accurate.
very pleased when i recieved this pellet rifle. the rifle held nicely in my shooting position and looks very good. once I sighted in the scope the rifle was dead on with plenty of power for what I wanted.. this was a great buy and i'm very pleased..thank you!
I bought the Daisy air rifle for my grandson for Christmas and he is enjoying it. As when I was young, the air rifle is a great learning tool as to shooting accuracy, safety and responsibility. Daisy has always been a quality brand and I expect it will bring him joy for years to come.
The Daisy Model 1998 in pink is the same as the Daisy Model 1938B. Except for the pink stock and forgrip, its a Red Ryder. I can not give it five stars because it shoots to the left(about 2 inches at 10 yards). I understand this is not uncommon with this design.
I bought this for me friends 3 year old for a Christmas present to learn shooting and safety. The hole family started playing with it. It's a cheep and grate way to git togeather and have fun and teach about safety and start for 1st time shooting.
Wanted a .22 pellet rifle so I finally got this one. I love it! Sighted in without the scope in no time at 30 yards. Then I had a 4x32AO scope I purchased at Academy for $29 and had it sighted in within a short time. This is a hard hitting pellet and requires a bit of strength to cock. Not for children. Trigger has a long trigger pull, didnt stop me from getting 5 pigeons from about 25-35 yards. Academy price matched this from an online vendor so I got it for $99. Am thrilled with this and ... looking to buy my next gun! I dont think you will be sorry.
Gun arrived on time in good condition. I have fired about 100 rounds and it is very accurate. The scope was easy to zero in. It takes a lot of strength to cock the barrel, not a child's rifle. It's a great rifle for hunting small animals, birds and rodents.
Hornet .22 with scope, bought a case at Academy since we take this to our cabin for squirrel. Got it dialed in at 40 yes. Good grouping on the rest and don't even alert the neighbors when those little hickory nut waters find me within range. Good Investment, need one more for the wife!
Bought this with money my patents and inlaws gave me for christmas. I was leary of break barrel air rifles cause I had a spring power air rifle that just wouldnt hold zero no matter what. This bad boy however, holds a group tight enough to cover with a dime. My son shoots competitive air rifle for school. He shot two pellets thru the same hole with this rifle. I am not that good, so my groups are about the size of a quarter at 30 yards. I did use a different scope though. The scope that ... comes with it is ok I guess, but I had a good CenterPoint 3-9 illuminated on my old rifle that I decided to use on the Hornet. The pellets we used that held the tightest group are the Gamo brand ones with the copper dome on the nose. And boy do they knock a hole in the plywood. Goes right thru 3/4" OSB plywood like it is butter at 30 yards and buries 1/2" deep in a pressure treated post behind the plywood. Only small gripe I have is it could be a little bit heavier in the stock to help steady your hold. I am definitely satisfied with my $149 purchase. Cant wait to see what this will do to some fox squirrels, raccoons, possums, nieghbor's cats.....
I purchased the rifle a month ago. It is to replace my 35 year old original, which is in need of a rebuild. The quality, fit , finish, and materials is excellent. I didn't care much for the plastic trigger guard but it serves it's purpose. The rest of the rifle is true to the original and shoots just as well. The price was pretty stout compared to the newer rifles on the market but it is built of real steel, brass, and wood. There is a bare minimum of plastic that seems to be prevalent in the ... newer rifles. I hope that this one lasts as long as it's predecessor.
Had one of these as a kid 50 years ago. Still quality made. Great for training my grandson. Worked perfect out of the box. Perfect choice.
I've had this device for several weeks. After zeroing it has hit the mark on almost every shot. I'm extremely pleased with the accuracy, and its knock down power.
I've had this rifle for about a year and after a good break in , it is very accurate , quiet and packs a wallop , trigger on mine loosened up after a few hundred rounds and the scope has been fine but I am switching to a 3-9 X 40 Simmons I have collecting dust - just to help with more close in situations , i paid a ton more for mine so if you are on the bubble about purchasing - go for it and put some pests to rest or some bunnies in your tummy ( had to ) , again great gun from a great company . ... Oh and I liked it so much I have the .177 and am thinking about the .25 just to round out my toys .
Its a great rifle great accuracy ver y good for target shooting hunting and more
My wife got me this rifle for Christmas about 4 yrs ago. I have shot over 2000 lead pellets since then with out any problems. I mostly just target practice with it but it is powerful enough to take care of pest up to a raccoon. My grandkids love to shoot water bottles and coke cans filled with water. They break open with great force keeping them entertained.
I like the weight of this rifle and how easily the scope is to sight-in.
I've had mine for about three weeks really like it. Very good workmanship.
Academy had the lowest price and free shipping! I ordered it about 2 weeks before Christmas and it arrived in about 7 days. Rifle shoots as well as guns that cost twice as much!
I bought this gun for my husband for Christmas. He loves it!
I bought mine and I cleaned the barrel before started using the air rifle. It took me around 300 pellets to break it down. The great thing is that I can use it on my backyard for practice. The best 5 shoot group of pellets during my shooting tests are: 1) H&N Terminator Hollow point 16.36 grains, Bullseye at 20yds. 2) JSB 15.86 grains Match Exact Jumbo Diablo at 30yds hitting the Bullseye. This air rifle has a Velocity1100 FPS fps for that speed it needs a heavier pellets to work at his best for ... long distance shots on target. It's a great air rifle for the money. Just keep the barrel clean after shooting.
Here is my review the gun is new still breaking in but I am shooting good groups. The scope is ok may upgrade later make sure you get it mounted correctly and loctite the screws and zero the gun in. The manual says about 250 pellets to break in but I shot around 40 to 50 rounds so far and I think it is pretty accurate especially for a .22 caliber. It hits hard and I have no problem hitting target at 90 yards yep that good. It says on box good up to 60 yards on small game and predators so this is ... my review of the gun so far. Go try on out. Not sure about the other guys review my barrel looks well built. But I have heard a few had problems with end of barrel cap so far so good on mine
Nice power and pretty quiet. Would definitely recommend
GREAT FOR TARGET SHOOTING VERY PROFESSIONALLY MADE
After a bit of research, decided on this as a target and pest rifle. Liked the FPS rating and the 3-year warranty (better than any others I saw). Need to tweak the scope a little but so far, so good. Thankful for the muzzle silencer because this little beast is still pretty loud!
Overall I was pleased with the gun, but the initial sighting in was difficult. The scope mount system wasn't well thought out. The mount needs to be to a rail and not hard cut into the body. This caused misalignment of the scope such that I had to adjust the elevation to the scope's limit before I was near center target. Finally got to center, but the adjustment is barely two threads engaged. The best thing is it held a tight pattern.
got it for christmas last year and tighten all the bolts got my scope dialed in and it is incredible how accurate the air gun is i love it
I had this gun three years works ok hard to zero in and every once in a while it shoots a little of. The spring finally broke but I liked it so much I will get a new one.
If your semi serious about shooting small game this thing is amazingly accurate. 35 yards out 4 out of 5 times I can put the pellet through the same hole. Which I could not stand the break barrels missing and being slightly off everytime. I have the gun paired with a nice Nikon scope. The .22 is a severe round that will put any squirrel down instanstly. Also the gun is very light. It is a loud so if you live in a tight neighborhood then this gun would not be for you UNLESS you get the tko ... surpressor like I did. It was only 50 bucks and it's a great quality item and makes the gun quite enough to shoot in the backyard with neighbors. If you don't want to deal with that then get the Maurder but it does not come with pump. I can get about 25-30 shot out the gun before having to repump.
I ordered this rifle because some review said it was easy to pump. So I did but I am in a wheelchair paralyzed from my chest and could not pump it after 1000 lb. even my sister could not pump it with out trimbeling. So I returned it with no question asked. Other then that it was a great looking rifle held the 1000 lb of air with no problem
