Things I liked:Style and ergonomics.This review is for my third Daisy 953. I received it as a replacement for the first two that where defective.
Things I would have changed:This one is not as accurate as the last one. I have tried over 20 different pellets in it and the Beeman 7.2 grain Hollow Points, seemed to work the best. It can do 1/4 inch groups at 10 yards off a bench using a 4x Bug Buster. It has a horrible trigger, about a 6-8 lbs. pull, the worst of all my pellet guns (even the Crosmans) which I’m sure doesn’t help with the accuracy.
What others should know:I bought a $50 Umarex NXG APX for my son that will put this $100 Daisy to shame. More accurate, more power and much better trigger.
Things I liked:This review is for my second Daisy 953. I received it as a replacement for the first one that was defective. PA customer service exchanged it and shipped out the replacement right away!
Things I would have changed:#2 died after about 250 rounds. Accuracy went way down hill. I called Daisy, they told me to ship it to them and they would take a looked at it and repair it. They sent a new replacement instead (#3).
What others should know:While it worked, at 10 yards off a bench with a 4x scope all the pellets where in 1 ragged hole using Daisy Precision Max 7.8 grain Wadcutters.
Things I liked:Solid Synthetic stock. Indexed magazines work very well with the right pellets. Single pump makes for a fast five shot string once you get the rhythm going. Very accurate at 12 Meters. 5 shots under a penny. Great for teaching youth marksmanship at summer camp.
Things I would have changed:The original sights aren't good. The front post is okay but a little wide, while the rear fiber green dots are spaced far to far apart to give you any accuracy. You can get a new $129 package with auxiliary peep sights you install yourself. I recommend that. They install on the front and rear dovetail rails. Since I got mine used with the junky sights I removed them and put an old 3-9X32 Tasco scope that works pretty well.
What others should know:My regular go to pellets for my break barrels do not work in this gun. I found some .177 8.0 gr. Ruger hollow points that I can't find anywhere now, but they are the best pellets that I have tried. They look the same as H & N 7.1 gr. Hollow Points.
