Things I liked:I have been shooting air rifles for quite some time but had not owned an air pistol until now. I read the reviews on quite a few pistols b4 I made up my mind on my first pistol purchase.
What a surprise, a great feeling, great shooting pistol with pellets. The power was surprising as well as how long the Co2 powerlets last.
The Daisy 617x has very good accuracy with pellets, I was also pleased with the with the loading,sights & trigger pull on single action. The inexpensive price was a real winover.
I put a Walther laser sight on it for night shooting (I had to modify the mount as the pistol has no bottom rail) this combo is a real winner for around $75.
I have since purchased a duplicate system for my shop. The quality was duplicated. These are a blast to shoot with pellets, not BB's. Things I would have changed:The Daisy 617x trigger pull on double action is very stiff, I put padding on the trigger to make it more comfortable for extended shooting times. The trigger could stand to be wider for more comfort as the pull is long & hard.
This Berreta 92 copy needs a bottom rail for sight mounting.
The back sight could stand some red dots for faster target aquisition.
I understand that these additions would up the price, but the price is so reasonable, I would love to see this jewel with these improvements.
