I bought this gun last year and i have had no problems with it. it can pierce a can and a bunch of other stuff but it needs more power. there is really low recoil. it is very durable. for a first time shooter it is perfect. (read more)

this gun is pretty good for practice, but it really isn't all that powerful. the accuracy is average'although i've seen better. the free scome that comes with it doesn't zoom in at all. if it does it's only about 1.1 zoom. if you're doing vermin control it isn't that great. overall i think its a good gun for starters.

This is not a good gun. Not sure what everyone is ranting about. I bought mine and 3 weeks to the day the bolt on the side snapped right off in my hand when I slid it forward to load it. the plastic 2 piece receiver started to separate down the middle. Only thing good about this gun was the camo pattern mine came in and the fact you get a free cheap scope. other than that don't buy this gun save your money and buy a better one. This gun is seriously not worth it. (read more)

Il love the gun.Good in accuracy. NEEDS MORE POWER!!!!! I shot squrille from tree and it fell and my graddad through it from our 10 foot high porce and the squrill got up and scapered away!!!! For first time shooters it is a awesome gun but if you want a rifle for varmit control go with a pumpmaster 760 or a daisy eagle or even better upgrade to a 22 rifle.Overall I recomend this gun for plinking.(this is far from a squrill gun!!!!)

This is my only air gun and i love it! I think this Daisy Grizzly 840 was made extremely well. This gun has been through hell and back, mud, rain, hail, snow, you name it its been there. Very accurate with no scope. If you are using BB just do target practice but if you have pellets feel free to go hunting or varmit control. This is a good gun and i've got this 3 years ago and before i got the gun it was my dads from the 80s and i've never had a problem. Enjoy. (read more)

The Daisy Grizzly 840 is a good little gun. The build quality could be a bit better, but then you would have to pay for it. It is very accurate for a smoothbore. The nature of the pump dictates no leaving it pumped for prolonged periods of time, it will ruin it. Pump now, shoot soon. Shooting pellets, the velocity is slower, as they are generally heavier than BB's, but the accuracy, (if possible!) is better. Do not try shooting tooth picks in this gun. I did, (3, actually) and I still regret... (read more)

i have had the Daisy Grizzly 840 before its great for young shooters ang old shooters. its good because it holds a lot of bbs and it only needs one pump to power the gun. the only bad thing about it is that you have to pump and then on the side of the gun you have to pull back a part to insert the bb in to the chabber (read more)

Gun will not hold air. Can hear the air seep out as I pump. Can't find replacement parts anywhere. Only had it a short time and didn't use it that much. Won't buy another since I can't find parts for it.

Overall, its an amazing gun (For a first time shooter).
It feels a little plasticy when you first hold it, but don't let that fool you. This gun packs a pretty decent punch for your first gun and I find it to be amazingly accurate.
From about thirty feet I can blow a hole through a full soda can.
This was my first gun and I still pick it up all the time.
The cocking/pumping system lasts a life time (As long as you take care of it).
The decent sized BB capacity (350) means you don't spend all... (read more)

For a low power, low cost air rifle, this is a great value. Have several air & CO2 rifles, including the Crosman Pumpmaster 760 & 1077 and this is the most accurate of the lot. Against Daisy's recommendations, this rifle is routinely pumped up to four or five times and it still works as if it were brand new. Several years old at this point-- still kicking. (read more)

Great first gun. BARRLE break guns are jealous of this 840. I got this 840 when I was 9 years old, I'm 33 and it still shoots the same. Save yourself the research and time and just get this gun. Later on you can get something with more power. (read more)

I have two of these for my kid's they make a good first air gun.
easy to shoot with bb's I was surprised at how good it shot pellets as no riflings could get one hole groups at 25 ft.
I got this for the kid but find I enjoy shooting it my self.
Good for nice quite plinking can's in the back yard.

I had this gun for a bit and I love it because its so easy to use and it looks even better. Its great for the target shooter or beginner who wants a little more fun. I thought it would be cheap and brittle because of the plastic but it is actually VERY durable and comfortable. I was also surprised at how easy the scope was to put on and use.

I cannot call myself an expert on air guns, but do own some pellet and bb guns. I think this gun worth a try if you are not demanding or I should say it is great for beginners.
I have never use pellets on the 840 since I think it is a waste at around 325fps only. The BBs work great for me on the 840.
I have a Crosman Pumpmaster 760 before, but it has "retired" due to the worn-out valves. Since the 760 is not available in Hong Kong anymore. Without option, I got the 840 to replace the 760.... (read more)

As a first time airgun, this Daisy Grizzly 840 served me well. It came with a crooked scope, which means quality control is non-exsistent. After mounting this scope, I soon found that the mounting hardware cracked the mount. I moved it forward, more gentle this time. It still showed fractures, manufacturing tolerances are loose, as demonstrated by the pump arm and stock. While sturdy, the stock has a noticeable line where stock meets receiver (which is plactic, btw). The pump arm wobbles... (read more)

This gun is good for the younger because of it's safe low power and easy handling. You don't have to waste your time by loading BB after BB due to the BB repeater, which comes in handy. But if you plan on hunting then you should think of another gun because this gun can barely kill small birds with a headshot. But if this is for a child who wants a gun to improve aiming and wants to work up to a better gun then I recommend this gun highly. (read more)

Nice to have the opportunity to say something here since I purchased the Daisy Grizzly 840 air rifle via a hard time making decision, after all, not easy to get stuffs like this here, in Taiwan. ^_^ Do envy you guys here in America, I mean it. Oh and, the value for money got only 5 because price of this second-handed 840 was about 155 US dollars...amazing, wasn't it?

Ok, I have seen a few reviews that complain about the Daisy Grixxly 840 series because they lack power for hunting. I am not a hunter, but to hunt with a gun of less than about 600 fps seems kind of cruel to me. After some research on this subject, I have found opinions that say hunting should not be done with anything less than 1000 fps. Some people say they get good results from guns that only produce 300 fps at the muzzle. You decide what works, but it seems like 600 is a good... (read more)

Daisy Grizzly 840 - We found a Grizzly Kit on sale for $22.95 at local Kmart that is closing. The kit included 250 pack target pellets and 350 tub of bbs, five 10 meter targets, shooting glasses and video. I bought this for my son to shoot sparrows and black birds with. This was a first gun and a great learning tool. The fact it will handle pellets sold me. I didn't want him to shoot bbs or bb guns. BBs do ricochet. He is currently limited to target pellets. As he matures pointed pellets... (read more)

I am 46 years old and the Daisy Grizzly 840gun is a blast to play with. Compared to my old 270fps Red Ryder that I had as a kid which by the way took out 2 squirrels 3000 plus blackbirds and several hundred roosting sparrows the 320fps. GRIZZLY is a POWERHOUSE! At 12 feet with a pointed pellet it blows through 2 soda cans. Blackbirds out 60ft are no problem using bbs. Using this gun will make you have to stalk a little bit closer but it will do its job if you do yours. Yeah there are more... (read more)

I have owned the Daisy Grizzly 840 for about 1 year and I have had no problems so far it's a very reliable gun for a beginner. I use this gun to take out small birds and most of the time doesn't kill the animal. I have added a 4x15 scope it does the trick to about 20 feet. This gun has no power for any big stuff not recommending it to ages 13 and up. (read more)

The Daisy Grizzly 840 is a very good air rifle for younger kids up till about 12-14 years old. Its muzzle velocity is 300-320 fps so its not too powerful. A lot of fun can be had just plinking cans. Pumping of the gun seems very light and I should think that it wouldn't be too difficult for a younger child too operate. For an older shooter I would recommend getting a more powerful rifle for longer range shooting. (read more)

I have two and they both go left. they are smooth bore and hurts like crazy, because they ricochet off of anything hard. I have fired one 27,000 or so times. it still works perfectly after 8 years. they are reasonably accurate as in they hit in relativily the same spot. it all depends on your elevation and range. pretty nice. good for begginers, then move up.
do NOT put a scope or other sight on it. range is too bad. (read more)
