Things I liked: I have bought many guns over the years and many right here from P.A.. This "Model 25" is the greatest gun in so many ways. It's accurate out at about 50 yards (good enough for by back yard), it's extremely quiet. The bb hitting the target makes more noise than the gun. Aims and shoots well right out of the box. Smooth pump action. It's a psudo replica of the 1937 no. 25 but it shoot's much better than the Michigan/Arkansas made models (I have a 1919, 1938, 2014 and a few others). I did not know what a functional gun this was blowing it off as a kids toy. I later find the no. 25 was used to train military and law enforcement. The ability to use steel bb's is a big plus and cuts down on the amount of lead laying around on the ground. No other guns carries the on going history of the Daisy no. 25. I was so enthralled by the no. 25 I quickly began researching and collecting them. I even started a blog and YT channel inspired by the no. 25 called the AIR Show. - "CaliAir"
Things I would have changed: Nothing... but since we can dream... more intricate scrolling all the way down the front of the trigger, ribbed butt stock, six grooves on the handle instead of five, blued barrel instead of the black painted barrel...AND A METAL TRIGGER... you know like the actual 1937 variation #6... but really, I'm not complaining.
What others should know: The only thing on this that isn't metal is the plastic trigger. The trigger action itself is pristine... but it's plastic. The rest of the gun is wood and metal. I'm an old guy with less than perfect eye sight but the iron sights on this gun work fine for me. Especially after applying a little white paint to the front sight. Rear sight is adjustable but mine have been good out of the box. I've bought every form of air gun imaginable from PCP's, multi-pumps, nitro-pistons, break barrels etc... This gun has changed my whole perception of "bb guns". Nothing has quadrupled my trigger time more than this Chinese made $40 re-issue "Model" no. 25. Check out my review of the new no. 25 on YT on The AIR Show with CaliAir!
Things I liked: On a human scale, one might say. Solid piece of equipment surprisingly inexpensive. Power & noise okay even here in this quiet area (if plinker is cautious). Those BBs penetrate like arrows or something, by the way but still you've got to worry about bouncing BBs. Glasses/goggles always needed everywhere--but "return fire" adds excitement and interest. Accuracy decent at 15' (tested range) tho the long trigger pull makes pest control questionable--am still awaiting a proper pest for a test. A no-worry gun. Simple, apparently reliable for years. No worry if gets scratched.
Things I would have changed: Shorter trigger throw. Better finger-grip on the middle of the cocking arm(s); as of now, it's tricky to get a purchase on that part, and the hint of a ridge there is not enough.
What others should know: At this price and quality, I'd say just get one just IN CASE you think you might like one. Really a deal.
Things I liked: Its plain old awesome. Dont know how I have lived without it.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: Fun to shoot

Will the Lasso Scope Mount work on this?
Has any of you tried shooting lead bb's with the Daisy model 25? Any problems with the lead bb's not being affected by any internal magnetic parts within the model 25?
My experience with smooth bore has been to avoid lead shot. Pretty good in short range rifled barrels. Rundkugels roll down barrel of smoothbore. That is what happened with my Grizzly. See Tom's article here under the Rundkugel articles.
Is the Daisy model 25 made in the USA or is it made in China? Greg
