Daisy 408 CO2 Pistol

  • Semi-automatic
  • Uses a 12-gram CO2 cartridge
  • Dual ammo: BB or .177 pellet
  • Steel rifled barrel
  • 8rd magazine (2) built into the removable bottom of the grip
  • Fixed white-dot front sight
  • Fixed white-dot rear sight
  • Manual safety
  • Weaver accessory rail
  • Molded black frame
  • Textured grip

With the Daisy 408 in your hands, you’ve got a great way to hone your shooting skills all day long! Powered by a 12-gram CO2 cartridge, the 408 uses an 8rd rotary magazine to cycle your choice of BBs or .177 pellets—or a mix of each.

The 408 is easy to load, using a switch to tilts the barrel downward, giving you access to the magazine holder which locks in place magnetically. Each package includes two 8rd mags.

You’ll have no trouble getting a bead on your target with the highly visible white-dot sights, and a sure grasp with the 408’s pebble textured grip. Each pistol features a rifled barrel which further aids its accuracy. To top it off, Daisy included a non-standard Weaver/Picatinny accessory rail to mount a laser or flashlight for tactical training.

If you’re looking for an upgrade on an old Daisy spring pistol, or just love the idea of repeating shots in a practical platform, look no further than the Daisy 408.

Things I liked: This is a great little plinking gun. I find it very useful in practicing my form without breaking the bank. The fastest crosman premier 7.9 grain pellet that I shot over my chronograph went 372 fps. The most pellets that I shot on a single canister of co2 was 72. But by the time you get to 72 the pellets have slowed considerably. I will post a picture of what a grouping at 25 yards using crosman premiers looks like. The grouping was shot off hand.

Things I would have changed: Improve the trigger pull. A better trigger will improve the grouping, however I have shot 9mm's and 45's with about the same trigger pull.

What others should know: This is a plastic gun. But it seems to hold up ok.

Things I liked: Shoots very good for a co2 gun. I have only had it for over a month and a half and will not hold CO2. Discharges it every time even when using PellGun Oil.

Things I would have changed: nothing

What others should know: I can't recommend this Gun at this time.

Things I liked: Power, Accuracy, Co2 loading - very easy... Feels great in the hand... easy to load pellets, LOUD!

Things I would have changed: Trigger pull could be a little lighter, but really not an issue as this gun is very accurate indeed! Would like one in .22 version.

What others should know: This is an excellent product from Daisy. I have four daisy pistols and have had no issues with any. None make any hisss when loading Co2! Performance on all 4 is outstanding, and rivals the accuracy and quality of my other more expensive air Guns...

  • GLENN from USA asked:

    With all the double action only CO2 pistols now, why would Daisey not make their gun a single /double action with a hammer or rear cocking slide like the S&W M&P 45 CO2 pellet pistol. Double action only tosses accuracy out the window. right?

    • Andy from Canada:

      Daisy's made some Great! pistol's in the Past, The "008" that this Gun is Replacing Looks like it'll Do as Well in the Performence dept,.(The 008 was a Fantastic Shooter, Why they replaced it, I don't Know!),,The Best Co2 Pistol I ever Owned was The Daisy 622X,,6x.22 round's @ close to 500fps, over 500 w/ "Alloy", It was "Great"!!, but Daisy discontinued it for some Reason,,,Then the 617X went "Off-Line", followed by the "008", All that was Left was their BB Gun line-up,,So, It's Nice to See they're putting out something that shoots Pellet's @ a Nice m/v. Cheer's, Andy.
