Things I liked: Bought this to teach my 9 year old great niece how to shoot. Didn't want a 700 or 800 fps rifle to start and this one at only 350 fits the bill perfectly. Light weight at only 3 pounds, one pump to cock, the bb port is big enough that teaching her to load it by herself was easy and it also has the nice little feature of even being pumped, it won't fire until after you pull the lever back and load a bb, plus the safety is just stiff enough that she has to put a little push into it and doesn't just slide back and forth and we talk about safety and safe shooting practices every time we go out before she gets to shoot.
Things I would have changed: Not a thing, great little beginner rifle for teaching all the basics.
What others should know: Great little rifle for the price to teach a beginning shooter and get them in the practice of safe gun handling and shooting before they move up to a rifle with more power and don't forget the Junior shooting glasses, my niece knows she has to wear a pair and the one time I had a brain fart and forgot, she jumped all over me and asked where they were because she wasn't shooting without them...all the safety talks have definitely paid off!!
Things I liked: Surprisingly accurate at close range, easy to pump for younger kids. BBs feed very smoothly. Fun to shoot. Great for plinking.
Things I would have changed: Use wad cutter pellets only, preferably 7-8 gr. The port for loading pellets (single shot) is a little too short for longer pellets, so getting them in and correctly aligned is tedious. Stick with shorter pellets.
What others should know: In its price range its a good value and a great starter gun, but also good for more experienced shooters.
Things I liked: The silky smooth E-Z single pump! Very nice camo job. A much better fit for grown ups than the Crosman 760 for example, so a gun everyone can enjoy and shoot comfortly. A very underrated airgun for laid back plinking. I like the fact that it's smooth-bore as opposed to being rifled as I can load er up with 200 BBs if I so choose. I'm not at all a fan of shooting BBs in pellet/BB guns that have rifled barrels.
Things I would have changed: Would have been nice to squeeze a little more FPS out it.
What others should know: Shoots Daisy BBs and Crosman's cheap pointed pellets very well. So well that I have not tried much else in it. If you can live with the low power output, you will be very happy.
Is this a good rifle for an adult to use?
I want this gun for indoor and back yard plinking. I prefer a scope to open sights. What is the best scope to use in my situation?
If you will be shooting at the same distance, a fixed 4 power scope will work fine for you.
Other than the paint job, are there mechanical differences between the Grizzly 840 B & C?
