Developed specifically for the Canadian Cadets, the Avanti 853 Legend EX uses a 5-shot clip with auto-indexing and shoots 20 fps slower than the standard 853 Legend.

The classic NRA Junior competition rifle! Ideal for shooters 16 and up (with adult supervision) to learn to shoot in 10-meter competition. Daisy's Avanti 853 Legend EX has a sporter hardwood stock that's capped with a removable buttpad to allow for the included insert spacers to adjust the length of pull for the shooter's size.

Most impressive is the crowned Lothar Walther barrel. It's precision-bored for .177 match pellets, has 12 lands and grooves, and a right-hand twist. The front sight has interchangeable aperture inserts, and the rear sight is micrometer adjustable. The included sling will also help the shooter steady the rifle. The 853 Legend EX is so accurate that most shooters will not outgrow the rifle's potential. Although official competition rules do not allow scopes, the rifle has a dovetail scope mount in the diecast receiver in the event you want to use this rifle for shooting other targets or just for fun.

Things I liked: I was looking for an accurate rifle up to 10-15 meters, easy to cock, and quiet that I could use in my back yard for target practic. I also did not want to break the bank with the price. This one fits the bill. I also like the 5 shot magazines.

Things I would have changed: I wish the front sight was removable since I have installed a reflective scope, but it's no big deal.

What others should know: None.

Things I liked: Medium size, not too big not too small. Super super accurate (hit bullseye 10/10 at 50 feet) Very quiet, very easy to pump.

Things I would have changed: A little pricey.

What others should know: This gun is the best among my 20 airgun collection. Use it for backyard target shooting only. I bought a second one for my son.

  • Kelly from Canada asked:

    Where can I buy orange safety rods that are inserted down the barrel to show weapon is safe?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Typically they are made from nylon or mono-filament. I would recommend weed wacker line
