Things I liked: I like the slide action. Plastic safety is a little flaky. It will generally keep tin cans moving,,,,,,but, the times it lets go a left side flyer(off by a foot) is rather unsettling. I would like to use these on a range, but so far there is no way to get it to shoot consistant
Things I would have changed: I would put on a shoulder strap, neon front sight, vented rib, anything to make it more presentable as a presentation piece and more accurate. I really want to use this in a race course.
What others should know: Expect fliers to the left about 10% of the time.
Things I liked: Looks good, plenty of power for the small jobs appropriate, not noisy, feels good, sights okay for close up. Seems a quality item. Until...!
Things I would have changed: Daisy/Gamo NOT use plastic parts in trigger assembly and area. Good grief! What a terrible decision, making these parts of plastic! I had my 25 for about a month and it was a fun gadget but suddenly the trigger assy locked up and suddenly small plastic bits fell out! As the gun was now junk, I took a look inside and more showed broken condition. It couldn't be more a surprise or disappointing. Decades ago this model was a solid reliable piece. We used to shoot ants with it from 25 ft. away, hundreds of rounds. What next, Daisy? Rubber barrel and springs?
What others should know: Hope for better luck and maybe a 25 you buy will have better plastic parts; or just buy another model or brand; or wait awhile and perhaps the next generation of 25s will be superior IF enough complaints reach the company and they fix the design/materials.
Things I liked: This gun is a good reproduction of the original slide-action Daisy BB gun, although it doesn't work in exactly the same way. The feed system is quite a bit different. It has a feed device that is unscrewed from the muzzle and holds about thirty BBs. The original held hundreds of BBs, but didn't always feed a BB when the action was cycled. This new system feeds a BB every time. The proportions of the gun are good, although a little long for a short-statured person. Accuracy is acceptable, not great.
Things I would have changed: I think this gun has been designed for safety more than the original gun. The power has been stepped down and the magazine capacity reduced. There is a somewhat clumsy, but perfectly functional trigger safety catch. In this day of lawsuits, all these changes make sense. Some will complain about the power and the limited BB capacity, but in my humble opinion, the gun is perfectly satisfactory for a backyard plinker.
What others should know: It's a nice fun plinker. Good value for money. Nice looking. Always wear eye protection. BBs ricochet and may come back and hit you. I was a professional firearms instructor for many years. Once I made the mistake of bringing a BB gun to the range. Nobody wanted to shoot real guns, they were fighting over the BB gun like a bunch of kids.

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.
