I just spent some time sighting in 2 new guns...Ruger Blackhawk and the Daisy powerline 953 targetpro......it may be my perception and perhaps having to do with the weights of the guns but...shooting from the bench off a forebag I would swear the daisy hits harder than the ruger. And it took only 5 rounds to sight and the ruger I had to keep at it and finally take the dail off, pry up the rear sight to finally get enough spring in it to sight up far enough..once it was raised though is was great.
I was at almost 30 feet since that was all I can get inside here.
The diasy was also way easier to shoot standing freehand of course do to the wieght...I also really like the long for stock once I decided to actaully reach out that far...duh....duh. I think it will be an inside iron sight gun and I will scope the ruger and try it longer outside when the sun comes out.

Not a very techincal review but...2 thumbs and 3 twenties way up!! thanks Ace for pointing this deal out to me.

got a mix pack of RWS from princess today, 100 count of each, 500 all together, the 953 seems to like the pointed tip and hallow point the best, not sure what the main difference will be in the field. i have manged to get the scope down to a pretty tight zero at 35 meters. not sure at what distance i should set the cross hair so far 35 meters seems to be pretty good.

and now, we shall wait for the rain to stop and take care of them dang birds.

I decided to buy one for my sons future, since the price was right.

First thing I noticed this is a youth rifle with very little metal used.

The stock scope rings are just to high for a youths gun, so I stole the scope and rings off of my rim fires. The stock scope had very poor optics so I was happy using my old bushnell scope!

It chronied around 465 fps with JSB 7.9 pellets and would hit 485 with a second pump.

I removed the front sight/muzzeld break which lightened the gun a lot, kids and beginners appreciate lighter guns.

I would have been pissed if I paid $120-130 for this rifle

The Daisy 953 is indeed a youth rifle. And as a very inexpensive one it does not boast a lot of real metal. I would not pump it more than once if you want to keep using the rifle.

Yup, that's why their called single stroke pneumatics. I don't get why people always want more fps from these guns. They are designed for accuracy at 10m.

Thanks for the heads up guys!

This will be a great rifle for my kids and my friends kids, to teach technique and safety.

It's also nice to know that the rifle is made in USA, but the scope is Chinese.

Are all the daisy rifles of this style, youth rifles? I've always had my eye on the avanti but I could never figure if they were an adult version or not.

Really I have seen worse rifles than this that go for more than $150 just saying. :|
I'm a little confused of your point, you paid $60 for it did you think you where getting a $500 gun. :?
"youth riffle" I'd say its on the borderline of youth rifle I have a Slavia 618 now that's a youth riffle.
the 953 shoots smooth and is pretty accurate mine is anyways, :D I have quite a few rifles in my collection and to get a new gun for $60 this is a steal in my opinion I mean if you buy 6 tines of good pellets your at $60 or more.

I haven't tried the scope yet so I cant comment on It. but I didn't buy the gun for the scope, your not going to get a $100 scope with a $60 gun. :roll: just saying.
regardless of the scope the gun shoots fine with open sites. :D

The only thing is how long will it last before something go's wrong but only time will tell. :wink:

Don't take my reply the wrong way Knappr just giving my opinion. :wink:

P.S. yours looks nice with the barrel break.

Knappr that is a pretty sweet looking muzzle brake, is that off a 22?
the front muzzle brake is pretty heavy, and i must admit, i did remove mine too for around 10 shots, but i did notice it was actually making the gun more balanced so i put it back on.

i dont know if i agree with the 10 meter accuracy, i have mine zeroed at 35m and its pretty good. so far i have one confirmed kill with it. the dang birds just wont go away. a clean shot to the head/neck is all it took to move the rest of them away, for the day that is.

if you want a good mod, you can fill the piston with JB weld, that will give you a bit of extra juice as it replaces the low compressions piston with a flat (normal) compression one.

a good little read with pics

not the same gun but its pretty close.
