Things I liked: The gun is very easy to pump. The adjustable trigger is fantastic, adjust to your prefered pull weight, no take up, right there when you squeeze. Amazingly accurate. Sights are adjustable. AV-07900 Air Venturi Picatinny/Weaver scope base fits perfectly allowing you to add optics that make the gun even more fun and accectuates the guns accuracy.

Things I would have changed: It tends to be nose heavy and gets worse with the addition of optics but not too bad. The bolt being plastic is ok but would match the rest of the quality of the gun if it was light weight metal. The black plastic sights are very hard to see.

What others should know: The first one I bought from Pyramid Air started leaking pressure at about 150 rounds. I was disappointed since I had it for only a couple of weeks. I called Pyramid Air and was very pleasantly surprised to hear that THEY would take care of the faulty gun. I was given a RMA number and was emailed a prepaid return label. I boxed it up and within a week recieved a new, not refurbished, gun. This is one of the many reasons I have given all my business to Pryamid Air. I would have given this an overall rating of 5 stars but with the failure I feel Daisy has not earned it. I have read other reviews where these guns are still working since they were first marketed in 1980 so I was very disappointed to have the first one fail. I am concerned about the longenvity of the replacement.
