Things I liked: Vary accurate, and surprisingly powerful. Mine will hold half inch groups at 50 yards with out difficulty, and it will produce greater than 620FPS at 10 pumps with 14.3 grain Crosman Premier Hollow Point pellets. This is with out question the best of my .22 cal pumpers (and I have a few).
Things I would have changed: The bolt securing the stock is difficult to get at, this can be an issue for maintenance. Also please bring back this great rifle. Or any of its variants (the 22X for example).
What others should know: The Daisy 22SG can be a bit more pellet picky than some other pumpers. Feed it heavier pellets for the best results. Also be careful when mounting a scope, do to the way the receiver rail is it is easy to accidentally partially separate the receiver.
Things I liked: Wood stock. The heft and feel. Accurate and reasonably powerful.
Things I would have changed: Quality control.
What others should know: This failed to hold air after pumping, within days of owning it. I could not hunt with it, as the hissing air and re-pumping is not very stealthy so it was of no use to me.
Things I liked: The nice, hefty feel in the hands. Accuracy. Power. The scope. It does feel like a rifle should, the little extra weight of the hardwood stock and metal receiver are not difficult to carry, but help stabilize the rifle for accurate shooting. The scope is clear, has a good reticle and adjustments. I like how the scope rings were already mounted to the scope at the proper places (for me) so all I had to do was mount it to the rifle and do a quick sight-in. The scope mounts are a little higher than standard, and this helps tremendously on feeding pellets into the chamber with my fingers. I can shoot 3/4" groups at 20 yards with this gun with even a poor rifle rest. Very accurate for me with RWS Superpoint Extra pellets. This rifle seems well made for the money, and has all the power I need.
Things I would have changed: It is difficult to get pellets to slide forward into the breach as the bolt is closed. I always have to point the gun downward and shake it until the pellet "falls" into the breach before closing the cocking bolt. It feels like there is some sort of lip or edge that tends to catch the pellet and prevent and easy slide forward.
What others should know: Overall, I love this rifle. I chronograph a little over 540 feet per second velocity average, 12 inches from the muzzle. This is with 14.5 grain RWS Superpoint Extra pellets and the maximum 10 pumps. Not bad at all for a .22 air rifle, in my opinion.
When will this air gun be available for purchase? Or are they discontinue?
