Things I liked:accuracy, metal construction mostly, good heft, easy one pump, quite enough for a library LOL, this 747 will make even cheap pellets accurate, or better then your experience with bad pellets in other guns, the best cheapest pellet was rws basics 7.0gr, rws hobby 7.0gr, beeman pointed 8.53gr, crosman pointed 7.4gr, crosman heavies 10.5gr but may be a bit to tight for the bolt to push in, use gamo ts 10.5gr smaller head and skirt. most energy being about 2.7 ft/lbs with gamo ts, so it loves heavy pellets that fit good, they are good to 15 yards, so go lighter pellets for 25 yards if tin can shooting
Things I would have changed:maybe make cross bolt of metal, but plastic one works good any way, other then that it is made for competition
What others should know:the 747, 717 are hall of fame air pistols, i have used them for decades. 717 is a standard rifled barrel and non adjustable two stage trigger, 747 is a lothar walther barrel and single stage adjustable trigger and ouning both i can shoot them just as good, maybe its a slight advantage for the 747 for some but not to much, but depends on the persons trigger control. sand bag bench for shure 1/2 inch groups and 1/4 inch group potential at 10 meters, this gun can litteraly pick off flies at 10 meters (33ft) riffled barrel is tight and mostly for wad cutter pellets so be careful not to force tight pellets into breach and test the fit, some fit good and some will be a problem. h and n competition 5.25gr pellets do around 460 fps, crosman ssp hollow point 4.0gr do 500 fps, rws hobby 7.0gr do about 400 fps, gamo ts 10.5gr pellets fit very well and do 335 fps, i tryed kodiaks and barracuda pellets wich are premium quality but are a bit to tight for this barrel.
Things I liked:Great quality. Easy to adjust sights. Shoots consistent once the sights are aligned. Affordable price point.
Things I would have changed:Needs to be offered with left hand grips already on the airgun. Having to spend about $12 extra does not break the bank, but there is always a premium with guns and left handed persons.
What others should know:Great gun, great price, and Pyramyd Air got it to me in a very short time frame. Very happy with purchase, will work with Pyramyd Air again.
Things I liked:I am a 72 year old with arthritic hands. The side lever is easy to cock versus the amount of effort it takes to cock normal breakbarrel pistols. It's easy to load the pellets and very accurate once the pistol is sighted in. The rear sight is adjustable for wind age and elevation. The trigger is adjustable down to 1 pound, which is where I have adjusted it. The target grip is nice and makes targeting easier.
Things I would have changed:I have a Beeman p17 with fiber optic sights. I don't mind the fact that the sights on the Daisy are plastic , but it has taken me a while to get use to them. First, the sights are black-- no dots. Second, the rear sight has a wide notch which makes sighting more difficult for me. The Beeman with the fiber optic sights give me a much better sight picture and sight acquisition. I am beginning to shoot similar groups with each pistol. It takes practice. The price seem high. The Beeman P17 was $40.00 and the pistol was $200.00. I have as good results with the Beeman as I do with the Daisy. I still like this pistol and was willing to spend the extra money because of its uniqueness.
What others should know:For me, the pistol is a bit heavy. because of the weight and large target grip. It takes a certain size hand to be able to handle it in a freestanding stance. People with smaller hands may need to use a shooting bag to be able to gain the best accuracy. Of course, that takes the "competition" element out of shooting the pistol.
