Things I liked: I like the looks and it holds several BB's
Things I would have changed: give it some more power, accuracy is good for the first 15 feet then BB's start dropping, gosh I could see them coming out the end of the barrel, plastic is a little too light maybe add some weight to the stock
What others should know: poor shooting gun, I was very disappointed with it, needless to say I am not giving anymore money to Daisy after this one, I still have my first Daisy BB gun (45 years ago) and it still works, but I have bought 5 Daisys in the last 4 years and only 1 was worth keeping (so far) a Daisy No 25 pump. The Daisy Model 840 Grizzly is going to be sold the first chance I get, another waste of my time and money
Things I liked: I just bought the Grizzly for my son as a birthday present. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much for the price, but was pleasantly surprised with how accurate this gun is for a smooth bore. At 5 meters, this gun can shoot some amazingly tight groups with BB's, and Crosman Destroyer pellets. I really like the fiber optic front sight as well.
Things I would have changed: It's pretty much all plastic, but for the price what can you expect? My only issue with the gun is that the loading port is a bit tiny for adult fingers when loading pellets.
What others should know: Surprising performance for such a low cost gun. It's certainly much more accurate than my beloved Red Ryder. I may have to get a Grizzly for myself for pure plinking enjoyment.
Things I liked: I run a camp for Cub Scouts where we teach roughly 300 kids per summer about gun safety and use. We've been using the Grizzly for this for the past 10 years. I need to order our third batch. Yep, 300 kids/summer. 18 guns, 10 years. Answer your questions about durability? Accuracy: quarter sized groups at 20 feet from 50 year old eyes; 10 year olds get dimes.
Things I would have changed: Elevation ramp can get lost; preferred if it was captured.
What kind of pellets will fit in this gun? Wadcutters (flat head) only? It seems to me that pointed pellets would be too long to fit in the breech.
Wadcutters will fit best. Some domed pellets will work also
