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 read the reviews and decided on this rifle. I made the right decision. This rifle is deadly shooting squirrels. If you are trying to eliminate pest this is the rifle.
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.
I remember my Dad buying a Benjamin air rifle back in the 60's for Xmas. The gun had remarkable accuracy. I shot it so much that I wore out the seals. From looking at the specs of today. The gun hasn't changed much over the years except for some cosmetics. The ones back then looked more appealing to the eyes than ones of today. The forward stock looks more like the old Sheridan guns.
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.
Shooting the at the standard 5 meter targets I this will consentently group under 3/4"...NRA standing. This is considering, the stock is not sized for me, no cheek rest, cheap open sights, loose forearm, terrible trigger, VERY light gun/barrel. You can easily make a better stock, and forearm; from 2x6 with careful cutting and sanding. Even at this price, the BB (yes, BB) gun will outshoot most shooters. For sure; standing, kneeling, and sitting.
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!
Purchased about a month ago, about 300 BBs and 100 pellets have gone through it. With BBs, it's not super accurate using either open sights or the provided scope, but at 10 yards, the grouping is still less than 1.5" in diameter with BBs and 1" with pellets. The scope works well for what it is, considering it came with the rifle, but really there is no need to upgrade it until it breaks, since the rifle itself can't keep up with a higher quality scope. For plinking, this thing can't be beat. ... 5 pumps is really all you need for back-yard can-shooting. For those starting out, start here. It's a good jump-off point as well as a fun little 'toy' to keep around when you get something more serious for varmint. I enjoy it a lot. By the way: Acadamy Online rocks!
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.
Bought this rifle to teach the grandson how to shoot and irradiate a few red squirrels. First thing I noticed when we initially started to shoot is the open sights are unusable due to high comb/cheekpiece no way to get a good sight picture while holding the rifle properly. We bought this rifle partly because of the open sights. I mounted the scope and proceeded to test fire and sight in it took 50 clicks up at 20yd . To zero . We shot maybe 50 shots averaged 2" groups some as small as 3/4" some ... as big as 3" . I'm sure due to shooter error. I am a varmint hunter and accustomed to making 300 yard shots on woodchucks.I proceeded to shoot from a rest and put 3 shots at 3/4" so the rifle has potential. Should shoot better after break in and experimenting with different ammo. Really disappointed in the open sight issues . There is also a tremendous amount of take up in the trigger I'll try to adjust some of it out ,trigger pull weight is not bad. Pretty decent rifle if you intend to use the scope. Crossman should address the stock issue.
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 .
I definitely recommend this rifle, this was my own Christmas gift and I am very pleased with the results
Very nice rifle, trigger job a must, very good power, scope is average but satisfactory.
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.
And i must say it's a stout little pellet rifle! it has more then enough power to deal with pests and was very close on the scope right out of the box.i didn't have high expectations for such a cheap scope but was i was genuinely surprised with the clarity and eye relief it has. so far it performs flawlessly. it is a little longer over all than i like and could be more quiet, but for 99 bucks i'm happy with it.
It's a little louder than I would've expected, but it will punch out a golf ball over and over at 25-30 yards. Hot, cold or when it counts, this is the real deal. For the money it's hard to find something this reliable. Use Crosman Premier HP pellets or Gamo Rocket.
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)
Thought I was going to have to take it back until I learned to "seat" the pellets with a Bic Pen. Accuracy problem solved. Can shoot a dime at 25 yards.
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.
I've had mine for about three weeks really like it. Very good workmanship.
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
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.
Nice power and pretty quiet. Would definitely recommend
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
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.
