A CO2 rifle that gets up to 300 shots per tank fill! Ideal for shooters 16 and up (with adult supervision) to learn to shoot in 10-meter competition. Daisy's Match Grade Avanti 887 Medalist has a beautiful laminated hardwood stock.

It has a crowned Lothar Walther barrel, precision-bored for .177 match pellets with 12 lands and grooves and a right-hand twist. The barrel is topped off with a weight, giving the rifle a slight forward weight distribution. The front sight has interchangeable aperture inserts, and the rear is a micrometer adjustable peep sight. The 887 Medalist is very accurate, and most shooters won't outgrow the rifle's potential. Although official competition rules do not allow scopes, the rifle has a dovetail if you want to use this rifle for shooting other targets or just for fun. It comes with a sling, a forearm rail, buttpad inserts to adjust pull and a refillable/removable 2.5-oz. CO2 cylinder.

Does not include the CO2 fill device. Look in the accessories section for this gun for a fill device that let's you fill it economically from bulk-fill CO2 tanks!

Things I liked: Very accurate. Sure it will get even better once i get back in to it. Lots of shots on one CO2 charge. Very inexpensive to shoot. I have only fired chinese target pellets (The Peak, 8.3 gr), but is working great so far.

Things I would have changed: The loading trough. It is horrible. Unless you are a little kid, it is a pain to load. any tips anyone? IF you are a tall person, like me, the proportions are a bit off, as far as where the rear sight should be. That may be regulation, but all I know is it is too low. I am looking at trying a dovetail riser and see if it brings it up to a more comfortable height, otherwise I am scrunching my face and holding the rifle at an angle.

What others should know: For all of those who complain about not being able to charge it or having to buy a special adapter from Daisy, here is your solution: First of all, if you have CO2 bulk fill tank (not a paintball tank, a bulkfill tank), then you can buy the Kingman deluxe CO2 filling station here at Pyramid Air, do a search. On the other hand, If you have access to 9 oz or larger paintball tanks, I suggest you call PA and ask to talk to their techs, specifically Stacey. She custom made me an adapter out of two Benjamin Sheridan CO2 paintball tank adapters for the Discovery, Marauder, Challenger rifles. so I purchased two of the Benjamin adapters, and then she took one of them and exchanged the hose for a male quick disconnect (just like the end of the Benji rifles) and now I can charge my Benjamin rifles AND my Avanti from the same paintball tanks. Just hold your paintball tanks upside down (so the liquid CO2 goes down) and probably chill your Avanti tank for about an hour prior to filling (I think degassing works too, I don't know, CO2 is new to me.) This solution works great. Thanks to Erica and Stacey for helping me get this figured out. Really happy with the setup. I"ll try and post a video review showing my setup later

  • Francisco from USA asked:

    What was the chronograph velocity of the maximum velocity along with the weight of the pellet (7.00-8.2gr) and the ambient temperature when the shots started to be fired. Altitude, barometric pressure, and relative humidity would be very nice too. Thanks

    • Sheldon from USA asked:

      Need a VERY accurate air rifle gun for indoor (warehouse) pigeon and sparrow abatement where trapping has failed. All work is within a 100 feet, will this gun do the trick and is it dependable?? Thanks in advance for your help...

      • Patrick from USA asked:

        What is needed (the least expensive option) to fill this from the 12oz CO2 cylinder you sell?
