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: If you're looking for a quiet, very accurate, very light weight, non PCP, single stroke air rifle in .177 this is it. At 10yds. I can shoot less than 1/8-1/4in. with RWS R-10 Match Pistol wadcutters with a scope but I'm sure others can stack the pellets at this range. Getting slightly over 1/2in. groups at 20yds with same pellets. Build quality is very good and stock finish, though plain is very nice. This gun is designed for young, small frame individuals but I would buy it again.

Things I would have changed: Trigger when new is a little gritty and stiff. It smooths out some after a hundred pellets or so. Take up isn't too bad but would be nicer if it was adjustable and/or had little lighter break. An extra 100fps would be nice but this gun is designed for young shooters for paper at 10yds. Plastic spacers for stock extension are a little cheesy but they work. Will make my own out of wood. For the price I would have expected better peep sights but its a shooter.

What others should know: Although this is a target gun it is the perfect choice for thinning out the English Sparrows that bully their way at my bird feeders. It is plenty accurate and powerful enough out to 15yds for sparrows. Head shots on sparrows out to 15yds. are the norm if you catch them being still with no wind. I use a Winchester 3x9 fixed scope which is more than enough. I've messed around at 40yds and I get 2in. groups when it's calm but it takes the pellet forever to get there. The scope makes loading the pellets a little difficult with my fat fingers but it's doable by rolling them into position. The model 853C has a magazine which would be more handy with a scope but specs say you loose a few fps with that model.

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.

  • 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.
