Daisy® PowerLine® 880 Shadow Plus Shooter's Kit
well made rifle
my brother got this gun for christmas and he was considering exchanging it for the remington pump air rifle; we are so glad he didn't. This gun is extremely and consistently accurate. At first the stock sights seemed very poorly made, but after sighting the gun, we can't miss the target. Although the pump lever is a little on the flimsy side, it's length makes it easier to pump. and even though the instructions recomend 10 pumps for game over about 20 yards, we can take squirrell easily with 8 at the same distance. put a good scope on this gun along with some crossman pointed pellets and you will not miss

Great gun,bad site
I purchased this gun and sight package recently , and instantly loved the power of this bb gun. Its great and amazingly easy to load and shoot. The only problem I have had is that the sight is not that good, the quality of it isnt great and its almost impossible to dial in .
I just took it off, it's not needed, this gun is very accurate without it .

Having purchased seven .177 caliber guns including 6 from Bass Pro Shops, on the same day, to start to enjoy the hobby with my daughters, I own and have recently used other products useful for comparison.
This one was the sole disappointment of all my purchases. I have had a BB jam under the safety requiring a partial disassemby to rectify and the accuracy is questionable compared to other products including the much less expensive Red Ryder and Model 25 although they do not match the velocity of the 5880. The plastic used saves weight for sure, but decreases overall quality as well in my opinion. This may be a good product for a beginner because of the kit, depending upon the cost target, quality and accuracy desired. I would not recommend this product for an experienced shooter.
