I purchased a refurbished Daisy 853 Air rifle from the CMP with the intention of having my daughter use it to learn how to shoot three positions for high power and small bore. Now that I have it she may never get to use it!

It is set up for 10 meters with an adjustable match type aperture sights. I am using cheap crossman pellets and shooting lights out from standing position! What an inexpensive way to work on mechanics of marksmanship. Here is a recent 20 shot group....

I do not shoot that well with my AR's!

Careful, you'll put your eye out with that.

Dawgdad, maybe it might help when you give your AR also a female name? Getting older one has to pay attention to the little points Smile

but when you already shoot your airgun that good, I think you'll soon be looking for other targets... may I suggest matches? When you do it right you can light a match from a distance, even hitting them is already very good shooting...
(and when matches sound to dangerous, take tooth picks)

Daisy is not so well known in our part of the world. I started shooting with a Diane 25 and my favorite airrifle is still a Diane, but it has grown up to model 45 (and I don't like the heavier ones)

So that group is standing?

Ok, nice! They are all more expensive than the M1 I got from them.

We have one that my daughter used while on the JROTC rifle team and they sure can be accurate. I smoothed up the trigger a bit and her scores went up nicely. I'm not sure if the trigger was all that much better or she just thought it was.

Maybe I got the one you worked on... I got a used one that has been refurbished by CMP - I have not put the pull gauge to this trigger but i doubt if it is over 5#.

The used ones are only $115 delivered Slim.

Yes that was off hand from 25 feet in my garage. I was using a shooting coat and working on getting locked in tight... it seemed to work.

I worked on several of the guns that the JROTC was using at the time (2003?) and I have no idea what happened to them after the schools decided to eliminate the rifle team. However, hers is in a case in my closet!

Vince, the 853s only have a muzzle velocity of around 550 ft/sec. Not the best bird killers, as I found out from personal experience.

Thanks Punkin...they are also a little expensive for what I have in mind.

Might just keep my eyes open for an el cheapo that will meet my needs.

Cheers, Vince

A friend of mine ordered one and his trigger is no where as good as mine. What was your trigger tuning procedure?

Dawgdad, let me look at it again to refresh my memory, that was about 8 years ago. I remember that mostly I polished the contact points with a dremel tool using a felt buffer and some jeweler's rouge. I'll break hers down and take some pics this weekend.
