    The classic NRA Junior competition rifle! Ideal for shooters 16 and up (with adult supervision) to learn to shoot in 10-meter competition. Daisy's Avanti 853 Legend has a sporter hardwood stock that's capped with a removable buttpad to allow for the included insert spacers to adjust the length of pull for the shooter's size.

    Most impressive is the crowned Lothar Walther barrel. It's precision-bored for .177 match pellets, has 12 lands and grooves, and a right-hand twist. The front sight has interchangeable aperture inserts, and the rear sight is micrometer adjustable. The included sling will also help the shooter steady the rifle. The 853 Legend is so accurate that most shooters will not outgrow the rifle's potential. Although official competition rules do not allow scopes, the rifle has a dovetail scope mount in the diecast receiver in the event you want to use this rifle for shooting other targets or just for fun.

    Things I liked:This gun is accurate, easy to shoot, and quiet enough that it won't disturb the neighbors. So far is has shot all the pellets I've tried with good accuracy, some just slightly better than others.
    Things I would have changed:Double cocking the gun could result in damage. It would be nice if that wasn't a concern. If you aren't sure you cocked it it's safer to put a pellet in and pull the trigger than to double pump.
    What others should know:For target shooting indoors or out this makes a fantastic first air rifle to own. The stock is easy to adjust, and you'll never have to wonder if the gun is accurate. I started with some cheaper "starter" guns and wish I'd saved my money and bought this one the first time. I put a UTG scope on top and the shooting experience is top notch.

    Things I liked:I bought two of these for my 9 and 11 year old daughters to shoot 10 meter. They are consistently in the top of their class. The guns are very accurate. They are a little hard for them to cock but they are getting used to it. The sights are good for 10 meter, and the sling is adequate. Overall they are good guns. Though smallbore rifles would be cheaper to purchase, try finding ammo for those right now.

    Things I liked:Just about everything! It's a perfect rifle to shoot at 10m indoors.
    Things I would have changed:I'm might have to tweak the trigger after it's all broken in. So far it's still stiff and creepy, but off a rest @ 10m it will shoot 1/4" groups.
    What others should know:The rifle is not hold sensitive like a lot of springers. There's no co2 cartridges to deal with. Obviously there's none of the filling hassles of a pcp. You don't need an airgun rated scope if you decide to put glass on it. I'm currently running a Simmons 22 Mag 3x9x32AO from an old rimfire I had sitting around, and it's perfect! I was looking at several other models and the CS rep @ PA said for what I do, the Avanti 853 would be perfect. He was right. I'm really happy with my purchase from PA.

    • Tom from USA asked:

      Do you need the SINGLE SHOT ADAPTER to load pellet or can you just stick a pellet in breach?

      • Richelle from USA:

        A single shot adapter is not required to load pellets in this airgun.
