Post subject:  Daisy 717.... pretty impressed

Picked one up off of Mr. Marvin. Have to say it was pretty easy to dial in the sights considering I’m like Harry Potter waving his wand. Once I used a rest it was fairly quick and simple. Liking it a lot better than the P17, easier loading and cocking, but less “snap”.

Changed the O-rings, just because (I have an O-ring kit), which meant I had to back off the elevation screw to relieve the spring pressure in order to put it back together, hence resighting it in. Emailing Daisy to find out how old it is, manual looks like something from the 70’s. Previous owner must have done some trigger work, nice and light. All in all, pretty impressed. Probably pick up an IZH 46 Barrel Mount and a RedDot in the spring. Not really set up for indoor shooting.

Those Daisy's can shoot.

You might want to email Daisy for parts list and pricing. Parts are cheap(assuming availability after GAMO has taken them over).


Older versions were brass compression tube. Newest versions were adjustable trigger ala 747 and aluminum compression tube.I think some changes were made to shape of valve as well.

My compression tube looks like it’s brass. Sent an Email to find out age of pistol.

Got answer... March 1985 and as an added bonus found out that someone installed a 747 grip frame, 747 metal trigger, trigger spring, trigger adjustment screw, and a trigger adjustment plate, which explains why I found the trigger so light.
