The gun does shoot strong as advertised, but after about 50 rounds, the cheap, plastic safety mechanism broke and the gun would no longer shoot. I returned it to Winchester and they agreed to replace the entire gun for $75, but I thought it a waste of money to invest any more money into this gun. I tried to go into the gun and either repair the safety or bypass it, but there was no way to get into the mechanism short of destruction.I would not recommend it. (read more)

Bought the 1000Rx just to keep my eye in for deer season but the trigger is truly awful. When my teenage son tried to take a shot he was convinced the safety was still on. If you ignore the effort to pull the trigger then the rest of the package is ok in that it has loads of power and can be quite accurate. Compared to an Airarms Tx 200 it is junk but that gun costs a lot more. In the end I sold the Winchester and bought a Gamo CFX, this also has a poor trigger but it is leagues better then...

I am a former sergeant US Air Force Security Police and a US Marshal, I have taught explosives and small arms for over 40 years. I like this Winchester Daisy 1000X air rifle. The stock and finish beats my RWS model 93, so does the velocity of the pellet. The sights are great, (I do not use scopes) Since I have shot everything from a BB gun to a rocket launcher, the recoil is nothing. Accurate, nice velocity of 1,000 fps, and tapered stock fits great and the stock finish is beautiful... (read more)

I Have used my rifle for rabbit, turkey and geese. I have found the gun very accurate. I have never tried it with a scope as I don't use scopes on my hunting rifles. If you have to shoot more than 30 yards then you need to spend more time out in the field. The trigger pull is a little hard but you get used to it. It is a little hard to cock after a few shots but there is no reason to hurry anyway. If you put a little oil on your pellet it sounds just like a 22. (read more)

Very hard trigger pull makes it hard to shoot accurate. It's a beast to cock and is very noisy. Mine came right out of the box brand new and didn't shoot worth a darn. I mounted a bushnell scope on it and ran out of verticle adjustment due to the barrel not being in line with the rest of the gun. That is to say that the barrel has a cant. It droops downward a couple degrees. When using the open sights it was hard to contain a pattern on the target due to the poor trigger assembly.Just plain... (read more)

I have 2 of these AGs. One is the Powerline 1000S synthetic and the other Winchester 1000WS wooden stock. Both are Turkish Hatsan manufacture. Right from the box, these are rough cocking and have massive recoil and springer "twang". The triggers are less than adequate. They are beasts.
They are also very good candidates for a home tune/lube. I have disassembled both of mine, dressed out the main spings, added polished washers, touched up the trigger and used moly lube everywhere needed. Both... (read more)

The Daisy 1000 is a bargain when you understand the issues. I could not get the scope to stay at zero would always move.

This gun is an excellent value and I am very happy with it. It's accurate and powerful. However, if you get he model with the scope, be aware that the two-piece scope mounts are absolutely useless and they will loosen with every shot. Fortunately, the remedy is simple: Just buy a one-piece scope mount and the problem is fixed. But I can't excuse Winchester for not fixing this problem because it is well known. If they just tried their own product they would know instantly that the... (read more)

Overall I am very happy with the Winchester 1000x break-barrel air rifle. A powerful air-rifle, I love the solid hardwood stock. The gun is very accurate,once you have sited in your scope. Great for someone who is serious about learning to shoot at a low cost. I am very happy with my purchase. The gun is little heavy I think for the average person. The cocking action takes a while to break in. The so call new & improved scope was not very good. I had to buy better scope and I am very happy... (read more)

Wrote Daisy concerning the trigger pull and was told it was set at the factory (in Turkey) to 20 lbs and is not adjustable. I was able to modify it but would not recommend anyone doing this if they are not willing to lose the rifle or have a good degree of mechanical ability or engineering smarts. Now it shoots great, but I nearly ruined it, and Daisy does NOT sell spare parts!
I have also found you need to shoot heavier pellets to get consistent groups (8 or more grain). Because of the... (read more)

Couldn't deal with the trigger , but liked it's accuracy off a bench at 10m.
Replace the trigger let-off screw with a slightly longer one. Mine was not even been touching the sear when fully turned in.
Take the trigger apart, paying CLOSE attention to what goes where, it's all held together with E-clips and spring tension. Remove 2 coils only from long trigger tension spring. No more than 2 or you risk too weak a spring.... (read more)

Over all, buck for buck, you can't go wrong with this Winchester Daisy 1000x gun. After I sighted it in, I have never missed a shot. One shot - one kill, some at over 80 yards.

The Winchester Daisy 1000x has very good wood work. It's powerful and accurate, however, it is definitely not for beginners.

It would have made a very good 800 fps shooter. Great value for the money. (read more)

The Winchester Daisy 1000x air rifle is very accurate! Remember, don't hold it tight against your shoulder. It is heavy, and may take a while to break in, but after about 650 shots accuracy gets a lot better. It takes a while to sight-in, but overall it's a good gun. Remember to let it recoil if you want 1 hole groups at 15 yards. If you hold the gun tight you will have 6 inch groups. (read more)

The Winchester 1000x is a good rifle for the money. The joints can get stiff when you first go to break the barrel. You can put some grafite on the little triangular pieces that hold the barrel in place. When I first took the rifle out of the box I noticed that it was a little front heavy but not to bad. It will not make that much of a diffrence but I would not put a muzzle brake on it. If you realy want to put one on you can take off the butt pad and drill out a whole and then put in a lead...

When I first got the Winchester Daisy 1000x I was very disappointed; it took a good while to sight in and the trigger was ridiculously stiff. However, after working on the sights and using a little WD40, it was in great shape for hunting. It is relatively quiet, but very powerful.

As an owner of an RWS 94 and several other midrange air rifles I have to say that this rifle is a big disappointment.

I got this Hatsan 70 camo second hand, but almost in new condition, it's name on American market is Winchester Daisy 1000. Accuracy is very good, despite not very good rifling in the barrel. One thing that should be done is putting a single piece scope mount on it, otherwise you may not get great results.

I just bought the Winchester/Daisy 1000x. I find it to be a pretty good air rifle. The trigger pull on the one I bought is NOT too hard; it IS however a little long. The 'recoil' is nothing.
If you take your time and squeeze off your shots like you should, you'll find this rifle very accurate.
The only thing I'd add, is that it IS a 1000fps rifle and it does have a stiff spring. So take care when cocking the gun so the barrel doesn't slip out of your hands. (read more)

THIS IS A RE-POST OF MY EARLIER REPORT TO CORRECT SOME ERRORS I HAD MADE AND UPDATE THE REVIEW. I still consider my earlier review of this rifle to be accurate, however.
Some important points to consider when reviewing the Winchester Daisy 1000x:
1. This is not a competition rifle; this is a hunting/plinking rifle. This means that you are willing to sacrifice a little accuracy for a big increase in power.
2. This is a not a top-end model, and you DO get what you paid for.

I bought the Winchester Daisy 1000x because of the 1000 fps power. It was the worst $100 i have ever spent on an airgun. Besides the fact that it is very heavy, the gun is hard to reload, and it is very inaccurate, especially for that kind of power. In addition to this, after all the hard reloads, the stock broke. Stay clear of this gun. The Benjamin Sheridan Legacy 1000 is a much better gun and has the same power and improved accuracy. The extra $50-100 is well worth it. (read more)

I like this Winchester Daisy 1000x air rifle. There are some better ones out there, but this is a bargain. The only problem I have with this gun is that the trigger pull is so hard that it throws off your aim. The easiest way to pull the trigger is to pull, and pull hard and fluently. If you pull it this way, you will not lose your aim. Overall, I think this is a good starting gun. It is Powerful, Durable, and a Good Bargain. (read more)
