Things I liked: Great reproduction of the original 25! Good finish, good as and often better than all other BB guns on the market currently. Accuracy compares to other unrifled BB guns.
Things I would have changed: Plastic trigger with current Daisy safety (thank the lawyers). Prefer the original folded metal trigger on my original 25.
What others should know: If this gun had been available when I bought my rusty, beater Model 25 (which I repainted, rebuilt, replacing the damaged plastic butt-stock with a walnut one I made with adult length of pull) I'd have passed on my worn out classic, and bought this one. As is, I may just buy one anyway!
Things I liked: Fun to shoot
What others should know: It was fun to shoot for about 90 shots then the trigger broke and it fires every time u pump the gun without using the trigger
Things I liked: A classic design, 104 years old and still going strong. It's so basic and so easy to operate, just wonderfully simple. The pump action is slick and smooth and, unlike a Daisy lever action, it can be held to your shoulder with your eyes on the target and the rifle can be shucked rapidly without losing sight of the target. In this world, there are some things that just "feel right' and the size, weight, and its ability to be rapidly cocked and fired makes the Model 25 "feel right" ergonomically for an old timer such as I. ( IMO, Ralphie should have asked for a Model 25 instead of a Red Ryder in "A Christmas Story" but, I digress.) I'm almost 69 now and never had one of these and just got mine a few weeks ago and use it regularly to perforate aluminum cans in the back yard; when I'm shooting my Model 25, I'm a kid again. Fun with a capital "F."
Things I would have changed: Well, the rear sight seems a bit cheesy and I've done a lot of fiddling and diddling with adjustments to correct the windage as it seems to shoot to the right and needs periodic adjustment to correct. Also, the aperture seems to flip back after a few shots but at backyard distances, this is not a big deal. And, as others have mentioned, the fact that the trigger is plastic is somewhat underwhelming. How much more would it add to the price to have a stamped metal trigger? Well, since many have expressed the same sentiment, I would think that some enterprising individual would design and build one to make a good rifle into something even better. Accuracy? At backyard distances, it's fine and when I finally get the back sight adjusted to my satisfaction, it will be even better. And, I only wish that it had a larger magazine capacity but this is something with which I can live.
What others should know: Checking online, there seems to be an endless list of variations of this rifle in its production history but, again, I never owned one until recently so my comments are based solely on my Model 25. I'd really like to give it 5 stars across the board but the rear sight and its affect on accuracy make it a 4 for "overall" and "accuracy." But, value for the money is excellent if for nothing else but the sheer fun factor of this gun. I have several Daisy rifles and pistols I've picked up over the years and this is probably the most enjoyable. The only thing I regret is not getting one sooner.

Why would this gun be sending wild fliers out 12 inches to the right? What can be done to make this gun more consistent?
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.
