    The Avanti 853CM shoots 20 fps slower than the standard 853 Legend.

    The classic NRA Junior competition rifle! Ideal for shooters 16 and up (with adult supervision) to learn to shoot in 10-meter competition. The rifle has a Monte Carlo synthetic 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. It also has a double barrel weight. The front sight has interchangeable aperture inserts, and the rear diopter sight is micrometer adjustable. The included sling helps the shooter steady the rifle.

    This competition model 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 it for shooting other targets or just for fun.

    You can convert this gun to a 5-shot repeater.

    Things I liked:Very accurate gun. Very easy to shoot accurately since it's not a springer. The trigger will seem nice if you're used to firearms or lower end springers. It's not awesome though. I do like the magazines it comes with. Kinda wish this model did the autoindexing too.
    Things I would have changed:The front site broke while trying to mount it. It's cast plastic, so the tolerances weren't good enough to mount without requiring excessive torque and breaking it. I figure it will be hit or miss about whether you can use the original front site. Pyramid compensated me for a better sight. But the front site is nice if you can put it on without breaking it.
    What others should know:I got the airforce sight to replace the front site. I like the glass sight, and the larger size of it, but it sits too high. I can't adjust the rear sight high enough to compensate. Would need a riser on the rear sight, but then I'd need to build a higher cheek piece. I'm thinking I will buy the other glass sight on Pyramid's site. It looks like it'd be a more direct replacement. Also, the Airforce sight takes some modifying to fit the 3/8's rail.

    Things I liked:I like the accuracy, the Walther barrel, and the looks and feel of this target rifle. Great weight ballance for target shooting. And the sights are a good match for this rifle. Also, it's very accurate and easy to cock load and shoot off hand, and in the sitting position.
    Things I would have changed:They should have made the large rear sight clamp screw to fit on the left side, so it does not interfear with the thumb cocking of the breach. I have big hands.
    What others should know:It comes with five 5 shot repeter clips and an extra single shot adapter. This is a real accurate rifle. Although made for youth, it is a fun for adults too. Great accuracy, and the trigger is easy to adapt to. Also, Pyramydair delivers fast; got it in 3 days with free shipping. I find this 853CM to work best with RWS Meisterkugeln 8.2gr rifle wadcutters. I tried the crosman competition and the beeman coated pelets and they work good. But for better accuracy offhand, I like the RWS 8.2 gr.

    Things I liked:Great accuracy with the Walther barrel. I also like the ease of cocking and loading the rifle. It has great sights and the monticarlo stock feels comfortable and is great for desert climates. The extra weight on the barrel also helps add more stability and weight to this light weapon. Some say they don't like the trigger, but I find it to be very good, and feels just about right for a sporter target rifle; like 2 to 3 lb pull.
    Things I would have changed:Add more girth and weight to the stock forarm and but. This is a youth weapon and the stock has a thin cheek rest.
    What others should know:As an adult, I find this great fit for target shooting, as it is a competition sport target rifle. Know that it is not a hunting or field airgun. There are better field airguns with more power. Nevertheless, this 853CM shoots well with any wadcutter. The micro click sights are solid the rear sight is made out of metal and the front sight globe is poly material with 4 other inserts. Mine came with 3 different inserts and 2 are the same type. The shight can fine tune well and hold their zero even after removing the rear sight and re-mounting it. The Avanti 853CM is so fun to shoot, you must keep track of the time. I ended up shooting 140 rounds the first day I spent with this 853CM. This rifle is accurate, I was hitting 5 shot groups smaller than 3/8" bench rested at 10m. The rifle comes with the manual for the 853C, which is different such that the 853CM does not have a auto feeder for the 5 shot repeting function, and the sights are also different. And the 853CM is about 20 fps slower. But with the Walther barrel and accuracy of the 853CM, who cares about 20 more fps.
