Things I liked: I like the build quality if this little rifle. It doesn't feel cheap at all. There is a huge difference between it and the 880 or a Crosman. Yes, The receiver is a polymer plastic, but it feels like carbon fiber, and my scope mounts to it pretty securely. It has pretty good power and you can pump it less to decrease velocity and noise level. The sights are pretty decent but my eyes require that I use a scope. The Trigger is a little stiff but it has a short pull. It resets when the bolt is pulled back.
Things I would have changed: Okay, The parts are very good, but the barrel needs to be more secure in the shroud. I had a shot pattern that made a counter clockwise spiral. So I pulled the front sight off and put a big gob of JB Weld in behind it and popped it back on and left the gun standing up on it's barrel overnight. It really stabilized it. I thing the loading port is a little small for large hands like mine. It might be nice to have a moderator to reduce noise. I would like to see them make one with more power, maybe even .22 cal. Why not? I think someone should give us another option than the Benjamin 392. Yes, the 392 is a cool gun, but it is so old school and it doesn't scope very well. Give us something else, Please.
What others should know: Don't be turned off by people saying it feels cheap just because they consider all plastic to be cheap. It has potential and costs so little that you can afford to tinker with it a little. After I got the barrel secure I put a cheap GAMO scope on it, but soon decided that it deserves a decent scope. I put my Bushnell 4X32 on it because I don't expect to try scooting over 30 yards with this Daisy 901 Multi-Pump Air Rifle. I tried about 8 different pellets from 5.2 gr. alloys to 10.5 gr. lead and the best groups are definitely from the GAMO Tomahawk 7.9 gr. pointed hollow points. They also drop into the chamber nicely while some of the others are a little tricky to load, especially the lighter ones. This is a FUN FUN GUN. Get One!
Things I liked: Easy to pump, easy to load, decent-feeling polymer stock. Good open sights for the price. Light weight. Easy to make the trigger great with just a shim made from a pellet tin lid.
Things I would have changed: A metal receiver would make this gun much better, despite a modest price increase. Change the pump arm to one like the Daisy 880 so it doesn't pinch your palm and is easier to pump. Change the stock to one with a cheek riser...like the 880 has. Make it more accurate, like, say, a Daisy 880. The trigger pull could be much shorter and lighter out of the box, but I have that same complaint on all my air rifles except my qb79 and my Beeman R9.
What others should know: Despite the same inner workings as a Daisy 880, the 901's I have handled and own do not shoot as accurately as the 880's I have handled and owned. My 880's get 1.25" 10-shot groups at 25 yards. The 901's get 2-3" groups. The 880 is easier to pump, and cheaper. If you want a cheap pumper with a rifled barrel, the 880 is the clear winner. The Crosman 2100 is the worst. Clunky, and absurdly inaccurate. Despite positive reviews I have read, I have handled many, and they were all junk. I have had excellent results with the Crosman m4-177, though. It just doesn't have the power of the 880.
Things I liked: It fits perfectly in hand, shot straight out of the box. Has just the right weight and balance. It shoots both BBs and pellets but don't waste your time on the BBs,it's that good with pellets. (As a reviewer said, if you really want to shoot BBs, go for the Grizzly). As another reviewer said, the 901 is perfection! I agree.
Things I would have changed: A little more room for the fingers to insert pellets.
What others should know: Last year my grandson asked me to teach him to shoot. (It has started me on a hobby I hadn't expected but love dearly). Knowing what I know now, I'd start him on a Grizzly and move straight into the 901. The 901 is the kind of gun that if you were caught on a desert island with unlimited pellets but only one gun, this is the one you'd want to have. I've read every review of the 901 I could find on line and agree with all the positives. For the money it is impossible to beat. I actually like it more than some guns that cost nearly twice as much. Well done, Daisy!!!
Does this come with a scope?
Nope but this will work http://www.pyramydair.com/s/a/Daisy_4x_Rifle_Scope/723
Is the 901 made in the U.S.?
