Things I liked: All wood and metal makes for a solid bb rifle! Long enough for this 6' 2" guy to hold comfortably and weighty enough to hold steady for accuracy. Really like the classic look overall. And is powerful for a plinker.
Things I would have changed: None. Got what I had hoped for. Already have a 225, but wanted the classic 25 with the wood and original shot tube loading.
What others should know: Fun to shoot and shoots strong. Something about a Daisy that brings back memories of my youth for this 66 year old. Thanks!!
Things I liked: An absolute hoot to shoot! I had one when I was a kid and I can say it is even more fun to shoot now. I'm impressed with the accuracy and power. Both seem odd to mention for an inexpensive BB gun. At 7 yards I can hit the bottom of a cat food can (about 3 inches) as fast as I can cock and shoot-every shot. Also, about half of the shots easily penetrate the bottom of the can. That seems pretty good as these cans are stout. I have a 1377 and an MK-177 that I really like, but I find that this is the air gun I tend to reach for first. Seems very solidly built.
Things I would have changed: For the price, absolutely nothing.
What others should know: Pyramyd Air service is great. Whatever you do, purchase the 10 for 10 service. It eliminates getting the rare defective unit and tells you how fast your gun is shooting versus what is claimed by the manufacturer.
Things I liked: Accuracy. I can't believe how accurate this model 25 is. It exceeded my expectations. I can easily hit a soda can from across my back yard just about every time (between 35 - 60 feet depending on where I stand). The materials (wood and metal) as well as the pump action are what intrigued me the most about this bb gun initially. But the wonderful accuracy makes this model extremely fun. For the price, I am very happy. The fit and finish is pretty good, not perfect, but again for the price my expectations were not extremely high. I find both the notch and the peep sights usable. The pump action works well and is fun. It's a little stiff out of the box but my feeling is that it will loosen up with time and use. I also really like the 50 round spring load magazine. No annoying rattling sound from the ammunition inside the gun. I also like that this gun has some heft to it due to being almost completely wood and metal (the trigger is plastic). This gun is also extremely quiet.
Things I would have changed: The quality of the wood stock seems a little cheap. I wish the wood stock felt a little more sturdy or robust, but I won't be throwing this thing around, just plinking in my back yard. Should hold up fine. I'll take wood over plastic any day!
What others should know: This gun is a bit large for younger shooters and the action probably too difficult. I takes a little muscle to cycle it. Would recommend for ages 12 and up. As a 5 foot 8 inch tall adult, I find the action easy to cycle and the size of the gun is not too small. If your expectations are reasonable I think you'll be satisfied with this cool little back yard plinker. This is not a $200 adult air rifle, and as such is not manufactured to the same specs. But it seems to be made fairly well, is made of real wood and metal, and most important it is accurate and FUN!

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
What is the pump weight in pounds/ (I had one when I was a kid and it was HARD to pump!)
