Had one a few years ago . Accurate but a few useless features on it and I broke the stock which has happened to many users due to improper grip when pumping. I doubt that the build quality has changed but would like comments from current owners as to performance and accuracy.

Looks gr8 hanging on the wall. Everyone that sees my collection comments on it. My worst shooting pellet rifle. Slowly getting it better over the last year but get frustrated and stop. Bought a 3/4 inch scope extension rail that raised the scope way up and that helped. Have not got back to shooting it since. Yes the barrel band and stock broke so I ordered 3 of each when I fixed it. They are not known as good shooters. 30 feet and can not hit 1/2 dot 4/5 times at least is not a gun for me. Fliers absolutely frustrate me. Trigger are horrible on them that could result in some fliers. Some say they are accurate but that's not me. Maybe some just accept less. CHEERS!

One of my most accurate pumper, scoped or with the stock peep sights. Light, easy to pump and 5 shots clips. What's not to like (if you like that style of gun, of course)? Can easily be tuned for weight distribution and mechanical efficiency, as easy to work on as the 760. Simply love it :D

Have you considered the Daisy 953 Dave ? Accurate, quiet and only one pump.

Had one years ago but a little too heavy me for my indoor shooting. Currently have a 3 1/2 pound , more compact, Umarex NXG but want another light pumper. Considered a springer but probably won't go there.

I still have mine and it's fully operational. The M4-177 was my first multi-pump pneumatic air rifle. I added some aesthetics to it over the last 2 years. Last summer, I took it out to the range to test it's accuracy at 10 yards, 15 yards, and 20 yards using 10 pumps; bench rested and scoped. 5 shot groups @10 yards were yielding .43" to .68" At 15 yards, the groups sizes expanded slightly to .65" to .75" At 20 yards, I was getting group sizes from .62" to 1.18". In terms of accuracy for multi-pumps, my Crosman 1322 carbine is a lot more accurate out to 30 yards.
I've tested this rifle with many different types and brands of pellets. The best performing pellet on my M4-177 is the RWS R-10, 7.0gr. Velocity readings with this pellet at 5 pumps yields a 332 fps average. At 7 pumps, the average was 370 fps. With 10 pumps, it was 398 fps. Out of curiosity, I decided to do 15 pumps to see what it would be able to generate and I got an average of 430 fps.
The only downside to this air rifle is the plastic and trigger pull. I use it mainly at home for plinking and it's an absolute joy to shoot in my opinion. The pumping never gets old since I only use 5 pumps.
