Things I liked:Nice design, looks great, cocking and firing action smooth.
Things I would have changed:Precision and accuracy. The gun shot consistently high and the rear sight assembly could not be adjusted to compensate. The points of impact were all over the map. This gun was a huge disappointment, is being returned. As others have said, Pyramyd was reasonable throughout.
What others should know:I compared the model 25 to my Red Rider at 30 feet. With the Red Rider I could get shot groups of five within a two to two and a half inch diameter circle. With the Model 25 it was more like a 5-6 inch circle. In addition, the centers of the points of impact circles were about 6-8 inches above the point of aim. All shots with both guns were done using Avanti bbs and supported the same way. This gun may just have been a lemon, ...?
Things I liked:Great air gun......my two grandsons had been using my old Daisy just like this one......I got it around 1952. It was great to see that you had some and at a very fair price.
Things I would have changed:nothing
What others should know:Cust service was very good...I put the wrong ship to address on my order...when I called, it had already shipped. Service rep. was nice enough to waive normal charges. He had gun returned to them and reshipped to me at no cost. I plan on buying a Beeman from them in the very near future....nice company,good prices, and great service. Thanks...........James M. Price
Things I liked:Fit and finish is good for the price, and I dig the classic styling and feel. The sights are very unique, even if they are hard to adjust and relatively flimsy. The gun is an absolute blast to shoot, easily the most enjoyable BB launcher I've ever used. Although difficult to load (for me at least) the shot tube works well and, if you don't mind a break the action, allows you to keep track of how many bb's you have left on tap. In my experience, Daisy's customer service is also excellent. I'm on my second Model 25 - returned my first one b/c of a badly out of spec rear sight - and received my replacement free or charge. I got a return shipping label for my first gun, and asked for my replacement to be checked out before shipping; I received a very thorough test and inspection report that included accuracy, velocity and quality control data. I did not expect that kind of effort on a $30-$40 imported airgun. So, if you have any issues with your 25, I would think Daisy will make it right.
Things I would have changed:The sights are neat, but are very thinly built and hard to adjust (even my replacement gun has less-than-perfect rear apertures that are nowhere near straight). As some have said, the rear peep is too small and the rear notch too coarse - for plinking I have had better luck with the notch. Daisy should really improve the design and function of the rear sight assembly in my opinion, as they are a major sore point. I also think the pump handle could be made a bit longer to give more purchase and mitigate the rather long reach. The trigger is ok, but could always be lighter and of course who wouldn't want a bit more capacity and higher velocity to improve useable range and 'fun factor' ? A higher visibility front sight and a pad or plate to protect the butt of the stock wouldn't hurt things either. My second rifle appears to less accurate than my first, despite testing, and past ten yards or so, doesn't seem to be very useful. Using match-grade ammo may help, but I'd like more accuracy.
What others should know:This gun is more complicated to load and operate than, say a Red Ryder. It's very fun, but also somewhat tiring, to shoot for long periods, at least for me. Fit and finish are better than the Chinese pellet rifles I started on a decade ago, but those guns offered far more performance, accuracy, and utility. So, on that note, the Model 25 is not a particularly good value, and outside of plinking doesn't have much real practicality. This accounts for my low accuracy and value ratings. Of course, this is primarily a youth-oriented, recreational arm, so you can't expect stellar performance. I like the styling and it's a ton of fun to shoot, even with it's low velocity and spotty accuracy. With some improvements, like those I've outlined, it could be a much better, but probably more costly, 'fun gun.' As is, I have no trouble recommending it, or Daisy, based on my experience so far with their customer service.
