Things I liked:Especially for the money this is actually a really good gun. Light. No recoil. Accurate. I use crosman 10.5s and im shooting cans at 50yds. Even though its all plastic its a pretty sturdy gun. I really like it. My go to plinker and midrange squirrel gun. Itll pierce 1 side of a paint can out to 45yds. Not to loud. Very backyard friendly. My 2289 is louder. I have a 3-9x32 Center point on mine.
Things I would have changed:Better barrel. Pellets only. Barrel isnt bad but it has very slight groovings and a light twist rate.
What others should know:I would only use 10 pumps. 5 isnt as accurate for some reason. Most scopes will be a bit of a pain to mount with the way the reciver is set. Heavier rounds are best.
Things I liked:Well i liked the price and the accuracy was acceptable though not as good as i expected.
Things I would have changed:I would like to see the 880 made just the way it was around 1981-82 with metal receiver & pump arm as the plastic pump arm used today can have flex from side to side as well as in the correct direction. What can i say it just feels like a toy. The big problem with this gun has always been the same loading pellets especially with a scope on the gun can be difficult for any size hand. The trigger on the 880 could be a lot better, but at least on the one i got it was pretty consistent if not a little heavy, but better than every Gamo trigger from the same time period & including my Gamo Big Cat from the metal trigger era. Which brings me to the receiver mount for a scope just is not very stable with any rings or scope i used.
What others should know:My dissatisfaction with this model 880 purchased in 2007 was based in large part on the changes in manufacturing vs. my first 880 i purchased in 1981-82 and it is possible it was an older model that lingered in stock. My old 880 was a lot heavier and more stable, but all that is not what matters. With my old 880 i could get 3/4" group at 40yd and with the new 880 that was the best i could do at 20yd using daisy wad cutters. In conclusion if i were purchasing a pump bb/pellet rifle i would spend the extra 20 and get the Crosman 2100b as i believe it is better quality in every aspect vs. the 880 & has a much more reasonable trigger weight than the 880 or the 901. Also it is over 1.5lbs heavier.
Things I liked:Very durable. Although its reciever and pump handle are plastic it is very durable overall.
Things I would have changed:The reciever and bolt as well as the pump handle of all things are plastic. anything that is important for operating the gun (i.e- the bolt and pump handle should be metal ) Id definitely pay and extra 10-20 dollars for a metal reciever.
What others should know:The bolt feels flimsy and cheap but after smacking around on the bolt of another daisy rifle with the exact bolt i can attest that the bolt is very durable and will not break under any normal or minor stress. There is nothing flimsy about it.
