Excellent first rifle for youth Feb 11, 2007
This rifle is Daisy's bottom line pellet/BB combo rifle. Regular model runs around $37. The actual model # is 840 and has a common name of "Grizzly". However, Daisy did a good job of marketing this model by varying it's name, thus it's price. Other variations are different combos and colors such as this camo. Also there's military green. The regular plain Grizzly is black. Plastic most parts and real light. It's a single pump (very light) and hits at 300 fps. Good enough velocity for targets with pellets. I get a 1" grouping @ 25' free hand. It has fiberoptic front sight.
You don't need to spend additional money for scope, because it's accurate and it's a short distance rifle for plinking and targets. You also don't need the Camo or any disguising color because this isn't a hunting rifle, unless your shooting at snails. The grizzly "kit" might be worth it if you don't have any targets, pellet, bbs etc.
Bottom line, it's inexpensive, accurate, easy to operate, single pump fun rifle.

Great to learn with Feb 11, 2010
By D. P.
My father got me this gun for my 13th birthday. I'm 21 now, I still have it, and it's still fun to shoot cans with. It works with both bb's and pellets. It's a great gun to teach kids safe shooting practices. I should warn you though, it rips through a coke can, and stings like a bastard if you get hit with a ricochet.

So accurate that I bought a second one. Aug 22, 2010
By Thomas T. Ton
Just bought one Daisy 840C (made in China) from amazon 10 days ago. I owned one (made in USA) 20 years ago which is still working good. Both are so accurate that I could hit the bulleye target 50% of the time at about 30 yards (using a 10 dollar scope). My other BB rifles I bought for my sons are the Crossman pumpmasters. They are slightly cheaper, are very loud but much less accurate and very frustrating to shoot small targets. I strongly recommend Daisy for target shooting beginners.

Best Low-Power BB Gun on the Market Oct 14, 2008
I've had this gun for 8 years and it is still the greatest gun bb gun i have in my collection. When i first got it i would shoot it all day everyday and i still love to go out and shoot birds with it. This is a fantastic beginners gun and i have actually been shot with it before and it did not break the skin in case you are worried about the lethality.

Good Air Rifle! Jul 07, 2011
I purchase one of these several years ago. I have the Mossy Oak version. I have fired a thousand or more rounds through mine and it has never jammed or miss-fired. Still looks like it just came out of the box.
For the price it can't be beat. It is durable and can take some abuse. Though you cock it by a single stoke it has a decent amount of power and range. It is remarkable accurate at 30 feet. Holds BBs in a "well" so you can shoot for a long time between reloads. The down side is it does rattle.
For a cheeper Air Rifle this is a really good one. And bad looking either. It also makes a good alternative to the Red Rider.
