By lourdes from USA on 2009-06-13 22:22:57Things I liked:The body is made of metal, not plastic, but the knobs and a few other parts are plastic. It is very accurate and easy to use. Great value for the money. Looks very nice mounted in the rifle too. It comes with instructions.
Things I would have changed:Include some type of high front sight.
What others should know:I use it with a Daisy 22SG and 880 which are not on the recommended list because the front sights of these rifles are too low for this sight. But with a little imagination you can raise or attach something to the front sight and it works great. I attached a little metal clip to the front sight to make it at least 1/4 inch higher. I guess that just about any rifle with a dove tail (3/8") will work with this sight if you can raise the front sight a little bit.

By DG from USA on 2010-10-02 12:23:57Things I liked:After adjustment it holds zero! For about $50, the 5899 and Daisy globe front sight provide a huge improvement over factory sights on a cheap pellet gun such as the Daisy 760. It is useful for informal 10 meter practice or plinking. This is a better way to learn to shoot than fooling around with a cheap scope.
Things I would have changed:Mount should fit a round-top receiver. Increased vertical range adjustment would be helpful. Adjustment detents could be a little more positive. Needs just a little more beef in the mount.
What others should know:For the price, one should expect it to be mostly plastic, but that seems not much of a problem. I had to flatten the receiver on the 760 (also plastic) and epoxy the barrel to the pump cylinder for accuracy - it is ugly but a quick way to stop the barrel from flopping around in the receiver. Also had to lower the front sight to compensate for inadequate height adjustment in the rear.
