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: Accuracy!!! I made this purchase to practice. As I tried several different pellets to see which would shoot best at 10 meters. None of my groups were bad, all of my groups had all 5 of the test shots connected. When I got to the H&N Sport Match Pistol (7gr.) I had a very good group of under.180". To make sure this was not a fluke I shot 4 more groups with the worst under .200" and the best of .125". I don't anyone can ask for better from a pellet rifle at this price point. other pellets such as the RWS R10 and RWS Misterkugeln (7.0gr.) were nearly as good. This was done with the provided diopter sight and stock trigger.

Things I would have changed: Trigger has along and gritty pull but I performed the easy Pilkington modification and all is right with the world.

What others should know: Use caution installing the front sight and don't over tighten the set screws, remember the barrel is a tube and may be damaged if you are too aggressive. I have been shooting and gunsmithing for 40 years and this rifle surprised me.

Things I liked: It is light and well balanced. Very accurate rifle. I enjoy shooting it. Single shot adapter is handy and well designed so that the pellet rolls into position without any fiddling. The front sight broke when I assembled it. Pyramyd sent a new one right quick. I got a better fiber optic front globe and it is a good deal easier to hit the bull.

What others should know: It is a good sporting target rifle for the price and I enjoy it.

Things I liked: I give this rifle 5 stars because of its accuracy. The front sight broke when I was mounting it just as it did with a fellow airgunner and reviewer. Still 5 stars because of Pyramyd's quick shipment of a new sight and a new weight after I sent a photo of the broken sight. MacMillan style stock is good. If you find it to thin, duck tape a sponge on it. Once the sights are working and dialed in, the barrel on this rifle will really sling them in there. Because I have to work a little harder to stay on target for my follow through, I feel I am improving my shooting. It's also very light and well balanced so an hour of shooting is no big deal.

Things I would have changed: A better quality front sight. A lollipop insert.

What others should know: This could be a wonderful rifle. I do not understand why we get a beautiful choked Lothar barrel combined with the crappiest polymer front sight I've ever seen. If Daisy would mix the polymer better before they poured it there would not be a problem. Again, with just a little more effort from Daisy this could be the niftiest go to target rifle around for under $600.

  • Richard from USA asked:

    What parts do I need to convert the 853CM to a 5-shot repeater? Daisy website says this is a repeater, Pyramyd said it wasn't, so I called Daisy customer service and explained the conflict. Daisy assured me it did auto-index just like the 853C. It doesn't. Should have believed Pyramid. Going to order parts from Daisy to convert, parts list suggests I only need items #40 & 41 (actuated, clip & bar actuator), but I also see that the receiver #6 might be different too. Can anyone out there provide guidance? I don't trust Daisy any more, and they don't even have a manual or parts list specific to the 853CM.
