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
I bought this rifle just before Christmas. Really, didn't know if it was going to serve me well for squirrel/rabbit hunting or not. After mounting a 3-9X40 scope, I happen to have laying around, on it. And, cleaning the barrel out. Its accurate enough to harvest squirrels at about 35 yards. I like using this over my other guns for small game because there is no loud "bang" to scare off other game.
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.
This is the sixth, seventh, and eight Red Ryder purchased for the latest three grandkids born this year. I grew up learning about how to respect and safely handle a firearm with the Daisy my parents gave me. I passed that legacy on to my kids and now to my eight grandkids boys and girls alike. Daisy is a great company with great products and Academy provided the most value for the dollar.
Every kid should have a red ryder. Probably the longest lasting bb gun ever.
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've enjoyed practicing and getting the sight lined up with the BBs (50 per load, 1 pellet at a time though). I also bagged my first squirrel with a pellet 3 weeks after receiving the rifle from UPS. Everything works well and I'm enjoying keeping the squirrels out of the bird feeders.
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.
This is a great product for the outdoor little girls. My daughter is 6 and is "tickled pink" about getting this.
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.
Purchased this gun after I had recently taken back a Beeman X2 silver Kodiak. Which I was not super impressed with... however the Shockwave is another story. It is easy to shoot, much lighter, and over all much better rifle than the Beeman x2. Pros: nitro piston, super powerful and a blast to shoot. Cons: 2 stage trigger is a bit weird to get used to... long pull, and stock scope I'd say is "ok". It functions well but ill be getting a better 3x9x40 in the near future. This is basically a great ... starter rifle for a semi experienced shooter to have fun and get some trigger time. Perfect for a young adult or older. Looking forward for better rifles in the future!
Very impressed, rifle sighted in within 10 shots at 25 yards, hitting inside a 1" circle every time, with an occasional flyer, powerful, I took this rifle hunting and killed four squirrels and two rabbits with one shot each, some shots at 40 plus yards the first day I bought it.This is not a toy. You can't go wrong with this rifle for the price.$79.99 @ academy.( only thing I will do is upgrade scope later)
I bought this for Christmas and it is amazing. All it needs is a bipod. Just a little hard to reload
Nice power and pretty quiet. Would definitely recommend
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 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
Good gun accurate kill lots of elephants with it. I love it the elephants wer gud by tga way
This is a great entry level pellet gun. Although the FPS is no joke, the accuracy level is not up to par. I got this for Christmas and has shot over 300 pellets. The scope that came with this gun is fine, a lot of tweaking was done to dial in to somewhat close to the bullseye. It still is a hit and miss from time to time, but I read from other reviews that it gets more accurate as more rounds is fired from it. I used paper targets about 30 yards and I still can't shoot a consistent target or ... group my shots. So I'll continue to fire more rounds until I get there. This gun is pretty heavy, and the break barrel requires some muscle to break to get the piston ready. I like the appearance of this rifle. In the beginning it is louder than what I expected, but over time it does quite down, just like what it says in the manual.
Delivers a ton of power and is very accurate! Gophers don't stand a chance.
I bought it a couple weeks ago and decided to return it. It was bulky and heavy and there was no padding whatsoever when loading Uses expensive pellets or doesn't hit in a pattern the size of of a playing card Other than that good rifle
Ive owned this rifle about a month and im pretty impressed! Its been years since ive shot a pellet gun and decided to get one to shoot with my son. This one was a lil too big for him so I got him a youth sized rifle. Ive only got it sighted to 30yrds and its pretty accurate at shooting a 3 inch target. Im sure ill get better cuz im still a lil shaky when I shoot. Ive read complaints about the sight but I think the sight is decent for what youre paying for. After around 80 shots this rifle starts ... breaking in and shoots well so dont get frustrated with the accuracy in the beginning.
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 picked up the wild cat whisper a few days ago. I did have the Gamo Shadow 1000 from 15 years ago. By far this rifle is much better and very quite. It sounds like a staple gun just a quick "pop" you hear more of the impact than the report of the rifle. The Shadow I did have you could hear the " crack" of the pellet in flight. The accuracy was excellent. It took about 15 pellets to sight in using scope that came with rifle. At approximately 70 feet I could achieve 5 shot group size of a ... nickel. Impact is devastating 3/4 plywood no problem right through it Using Gamo Tomahawk 7.8 grain pointed pellets. Trigger can be adjusted but I left it where it was. This is an awesome rifle for the money try it you will like it
I ordered online and received gun exactly when they said it would arrive. Gun shoots great but changed scope due to could never get it sighted in but already expected this from reviews I read. I am happy with my purchase
It is a copy of a real AR15 , perfect for kids and adults
I bought 2 G-Force rifles, one in December of 2015 and another in April of 2016. These are great little guns. They are easy to cock, even for us senior citizens. I put a BSA 3-9 x 40 scope on one, and a Bushnell Trophy Red Dot sight on the other. These guns are very accurate using JSB pellets and H&N Match Rifle pellets. Even though these are considered as youth rifles, the length of pull is okay for adults as well.
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
This is a very good rifle. I noticed someone commented on the quality of the scope rather than the quality of the rifle. Everyone eyes are different and adjusting a scope correctly is critical to obtain the desired results. The rifle is great and the scope is not too bad. I did not replace anything had produce very tight shot groupings. The review regarding the scope is not fair and should be ignored. The rifle is great and will provide years of accurate service.
I bought it not to long a go an it awesome very powerful an great to shoot
Very nice rifle, trigger job a must, very good power, scope is average but satisfactory.
