I've been lurking for a while, figured I'd introduce myself.

Just got myself a Daisy 953 this past January, been doing some 10m target practice to improve my aim. Like many others I did the trigger mods, extended the pull a bit and swapped in the target sights from the 753. It's more accurate than I am, though that's probably not saying much. :)

I'm now looking for something a bit more authoritative for summertime fun.

Looking at the history I see there are a few other folks from around here...if anyone wants to get together once it warms up a bit I'd be up for that.

Always happy to welcome another 953 owner (myself have two).
Would it be possible for you to post pics of the sights you're referring to? To me the fibre optics that came with the 953 are by far the worst I have ever seen on a gun and I have enough guns with these crappy sights to choose from.
I'm familiar with the peep sights on the 853, but 753s are foreign to me. Are these by any chance peep sights?

If any other 953 owner is reading this and has the proper peep sights for it and want to let go of them, please contact me (shameful thread hijack :shock: )

Yes, they're peep sights. The Daisy 753 rear sight is this Image and the front sight is this Image

Basically the rear sights are an upgraded version of the 853 sights, and the front sight mounts on the 953 barrel weight instead of the fiber optic sight.

They're accurate, but you get no magnification and they work best with lots of light.

cb, the images aren't showing - please try uploading again. This forum allows you to upload up to 3 images per post but there are some limitations (mostly in size). Curious to see what you have for a peep sight, especially since duck-duck-going* Daisy 793 didn't show any relevant results.

Yes, I use duck duck go for a search engine, as Google is :evil: evil.

Doh, thought I had specified the Img tag, but I guess I messed up. Let's try again. Both shots are from Pyramid Air but their prices are quite a bit more than direct from Daisy. (Shipping from Daisy is steep though.)
