“I have had this Daisy Powerline 7856 for just about 5...”

Written on: 18/05/2006 by racefan2112 (1 review written)

I have had this Daisy Powerline 7856 for just about 5 years and I have shot well over 6000 BB's and the gun still works great.

The first day it arrived from Daisy I took it out of the box and there happened to be a rabbit about 25 yards out, I used the sights on the gun and bam it was down.

Me and my brother both got this gun at the same time and both of them are still alive and doing great. I have run around with my gun countless times and it's been through a lot so the durability is great… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/11/2004 by max or TRIPPLE H (2 reviews written)

When I got the Daisy Powerline 7856 gun I found one of my little brothers action figures. I sighted the scope then blew off that power ranger action figure's head. This was my first gun and it worked pretty good, but know I have a Gamo Sporter and that things the best man. But the powerline 7856 is still great… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/07/2003 by neal. (1 review written)

The 856 is a wonderful gun. i shoot it indoors (2 pumps, 295 fps), and outdoors (10 pumps 670 fps). I was able to take out a sqirrel easily. I use this rifle mainly for plinking, but it also makes an extrordinary, yet inexpensive hunting tool. Top fps is 670! In my basement I can easily shoot .75 groups at 30ft.(10yds.) Although this gun was very inexpensive ($36.00 at wal-mart), you get alot of gun for the money. I would recommend this rifle as a first or even second rifle… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/04/2003 by Glenn. (1 review written)

I priced and compared several makes and models of air rifles from several manufacturers. The 7856 is an excellant value for the money. ($34.00, purchased at WalMart store, Dec.2002) I practice target shooting at regulation paper targets at 25 feet distance in my basement. Rifle accuracy is good after 3 adjustments to the 4x15 scope for elevation and windage. Majority of shots grouped in the bullseye, with an occasional stray shot, but still withing the target circle. I plan to use the rifle… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/12/2002 by Natalia Cockz. (1 review written)

I just bought this gun for my husband, and he loves it. If you plan on using it for big game hunting, like deer, I dont suggest it, it is a waste of money. From outside of our trailor, in our park, my husband can open the window and shoot crows, and most of the time they die. I find the gun, and the scope very reliable and there is only a slight margin of error in aiming… Read Full Review

When I read things like this review, I have to seriously wonder if perhaps our time as the dominant species on this planet is rapidly coming to an end.

“I bought this Daisy Powerline 7856 air rifle for 28UKP...”

Written on: 17/09/2002 by Numb Nut. (1 review written)

I bought this Daisy Powerline 7856 air rifle for 28UKP from JS Ramsbottom.
My expectations were somewhat low given the tiny price tag. Quick note about the model number, the 7856 is basically a 856 with a daisy 4x15mm telescopic sight thrown in.

The rifle features plastic construction where most rifles would have wood or even metal. This is off course to be expected for the price of this rifle. I was pleasantly suprised by this rifle, you seem to get an awful lot for your money, but on closer… Read Full Review

An excellent review. One inch groups at 6 metres using this rifle that's GOOD. If you manage to get hold of a lathe and improve it please let us know. I know they are both made by Daisy but the 7856 is no target tool unlike the 717 pistol which according to legend once won a silver medal at the olympics !!!! I kid you not...

I agree about taking time to sight in the rifle and scope. I've owned this rifle about 4-5 months and adjusted the scope on three separate occasions, and my groupings have gotten much tighter, although I still get stray shots regularly. (although still within the target circle!) As long as your expectations are realistic, this gun should make you happy. Its a great value and reasonably accurate and powerfull, but will never win any awards.

After putting the scope on THE RIGHT WAY, i have seen the light......
<br>
<br>and after sighting the scope from a good distance away, i find the gun to be incredibly accurate.......
<br>
<br>i can hit a tennis ball size object almost 9 out of 10 times from 30 metres or so.......
<br>
<br>as long as the scope is sighed PERFECTLY, then your gun will operate with incredible accuracy, but if you are too lazy to sight it in properly, its a waste of time.
<br>
<br>peace

Written on: 27/03/2003

thanks a lot. i was going to buy two for fourty quid from jsramsbottom, but after seeing these reviews i decided not to. Is the aiming really that bad or were you just holding the gun the wrong way round?? well im gonna get it any way coz i know i can shoot straight, unlike some people who just blame it on their guns!!!

Are you saying you have trouble aiming with the scope?
Or with the regular dove tail sightings?
Just curious, I just recently bought the gun.
As soon as I saw the scope, I HAD TO put it on right away and see how it works.
I find the scope is great, except is very hard to use at close distances....

I found the same problem as the dude's other comment, when you think you have perfected how to aim, there is a pellet that shoots astray.
It isn't as far as the other guy said, but it is slightly noticeable.

Written on: 11/10/2002

Thanks for your comments! I didn't go into much detail about the barrel but the barrel crown is funnelled out which is bad news when looking for accuracy. The barrel is also only held at both ends, the rest of it floats. When shooting this rifle, the point of impact moves around every few shots. Its incredibly frustrating to shoot 2-3 shots into a small group and then the next ones to go elsewhere on the card!!! Anyway, I decided to chop the funnelled section of the barrel off with a hacksaw (less than 1cm chopped) and recrown it by filing it flat. Didn't make much difference however! I think the problem is that the thin barrel flexes and vibrates a little bit, perhaps randomly when you fire, thus changing the point of impact. What I want to do next is to fill the gap between the barrel and the shroud with some sort of dense-ish material - maybe that'll help. Just noticed that JSR are now selling these rifles 2 for 45 pounds! If you're new to airguns, you can't really go wrong! :o)
