Daisy AVANTI Legend Model 853



  • anyone shoot one of these?

    The Gunhive challenge has me thinking something like this would be nice to have to be able to practice in the yard when I don't have time to get out to the range.

    So these seem like a cheaper way to do this.



  • @rhyno Never did spend that much on a bb or pellet gun. The Daisy PowerLine Model 880 has been my go to cheapo pellet rifle with a 4 power Gamo scope. I would setup targets at different distances out to 25 yards and try to punch the X ring out. With the crap trigger, it took alot of control to poke those Xs out. A little wind and you could see the pellets flight curve. Going from that back to a nice 1lb. Timney trigger was heavenly.
    All in all I think it helped with trigger control.

  • @mamalukino No worries.

    Heres the 853: http://www.daisy.com/node/107

    If you are fortunate enough to be a CMP Member you can get a used one for $100 from them.

    I would have one on the way if that were the case with me.



  • @mamalukino

    Yeah I grew up with a 880. I have a spare 3-9x40 off my wife's Axis. I may just go that route just to get trigger time.



  • @rhyno at $100 that's a deal.

    Yes,that is a great deal and a much better route to go than the 880 if you can grab one for $100.00.

  • @rhyno do you qualify for one of their other alternatives?



  • @mamalukino no, I think the closest public range is an hour away.



  • @norcal_in_az didn't know they had alternatives.

    Shot sn email to a guy last night who might know something like this though.
