I had just got My Powerline 1000 used without a scope less than a week ago and already got 4 squirrels and it smacked them just as good as when I use to hunt with 22 the Crossman Hunting pointed pellet shoots good with no scope just the sights You can stay around quarter inch group or less at about 20 Yards where I checked it before I went hunting this afternoon and I got a squirrel soon as I got in the woods it. the first 3 squirrels I got were when I tried putting a regular rifle scope and… Read Full Review

I have had my .177 1000 for five years and use it to control rabbits and prairie dogs. My record kill is 225 feet one shot to the head of a prairie dog. At 60 feet in the basement I can hit a dime sized bullseye. This is not a kids gun and could cause serious injury if misused. Takes about 35 lbs. of cocking effort. As with all spring barrel guns the screws can come loose periodically so keep them tight or gun gets inaccurate. Have shot thousands of rounds with no problem. Scope that came with… Read Full Review

Great Pellet gun. The accuracy depends greatly on the pellet, for example i shot a 2.5 inch group at 20yrds with some gammo fancy pellets but with daisy flatnose that work well with other guns i couldnt even hit the target. I think the gun shoots so hard that poop pellets just flip in midflight. good gun. the wood one is a little heavy but nothing to camplain about, infact it helps my accuracy… Read Full Review

Ive shot plenty of squirrels, Rabbits, and birds with my Powerline 1000. I use Hollow point led pellets. and found them to be very effective. Ive shot a Raccoon as well. one shot from 30 yards to the head. Instant kill. Ive been thinking about trying for a Fox, but i dont want to wound it. does anyone think it would be enough to take a fox humanely? Email me at Nascar_freakkk8@yahoo.com Thank you… Read Full Review

I have a laser DOT sight on my 1000. I have harvested over 100 squirels from my backyard in 2 years. I live in suburban Atlanta and I have never had a problem. I agree with the pellet choice. Daisey pellets BLOW!! I am currently waiting on a new rubber seal for my barrel, wore it out!!… Read Full Review

I decided to buy one of these and test it myself.
Stuck a 6 inch paper plate to the old barn at 50 yards, which I assumed to be the limit for me based on most air guns.
5 shot grouping spread 3 inches on me the first time I ever shot it. I didn't correct for a fairly breezy day; they dropped and steered to the right probably due to the wind, but hit the plate.
Yeah, a little more kick than I anticipated, but the hollow point 177's fully penetrated the 50 year old oak siding and still left… Read Full Review

I bought this gun at Bass Pro Shops at an after Christmas clearance price of just $75, the same price as my previous Powerline 901. It is accurate (half-dollar groupings at 40 yards), powerful (blasts birds, cans, and anything you want it to) and has well balanced weight so it is relatively easy to handle. After sighting it in, I killed a bird first try. It gets progressively easier to pump as you shoot more. The iron sights are great, as the 3 fiber optics make aiming quick and easy. The scope… Read Full Review

I have used this air rifle to thin out the squirrels in our backyard for over a year now. I bag at least 4 of the rodents a month just from my kitchen window. It is accurate and has stopping power to drop them even at 25 yards. Choosing the correct pellet has been very important for accuracy and killing power. I have found the domed hunting pellets to be the best. I too have had to tighten the large screws near the break of the barrel. No big deal and to be expected. The scope is nice… Read Full Review

The Daisy Powerline 1000 has the weight that makes it feel like a real firearm which is appropriate since it demands the same respect as a real weapon though the power line is not a actual gun the weight of it the pull of the trigger and the accuracy makes this pellet rifle great for hunting small games or clearing your property of small rodents or birds. the screws coming undone due to the action of fireing and recocking the rifle… Read Full Review

Got this from Academy for $69. Expected all of the negatives I read about in the reviews- got it for the price and power. Pleased that accuracy was good when dialed in with barrel sights and even better with the scope. I didn't even have to adjust the scope, it was perfect after mounting (rare!!!). I have not had any of the problems others have had with screws coming undone, have put about 300 shots through the barrel and am more impressed with it as time goes on. I'm probably more careful… Read Full Review

Overall great gun. Its a very powerful gun when using the right ammo. Good deal for the money i got mine for about 120 at walmart. The scope is good but i lost the screw thingy so i took the scope off. good open sites. tru glo rocks!!!!! its accuracy is ok. great nok down power. took out a huge gray squirrel this morning. The break weight is bad. my friend has a big cat that can shoot faster and is about the same price with a lot less break weight. accuracy i ok but not that bad… Read Full Review

I love that thud you can hear from over a hundred and fifty to two hundred yards away. It is not the quitest air rifle I've ever owned but it sure does have some knock out power. I have been hunting for squirrel, rabbit, birds, snakes, and all other critters with this rifle and I can honestly say that I am impressed with it's performance. Iv'e never had it jam once, which isn't saying much for an air rifle, but I can tell you that you don't want to go hunting in the rain. Barrel gets kind of… Read Full Review

Well, I got this air gun from the academy for $49.95 during a 4 day sale. It included the scope and the mounts. It is very loud while breaking in, but quiets down a lot after as few as 50 shots. The trigger is just awful, so unless you just want to hunt at close range, or you are willing to work on the gun (which isn't too bad, but no walk in the park), stay away from it. The power is awesome though. This is my first spring-piston rifle, and I'm super impressed with the velocity. I have… Read Full Review

Got two over the Black Friday Shopping Craze for $49 each.
Can't beat them for the price. The Daisy Powerline 1000 is a good gun just really needs some factory tweaking. It has the heft of a full size rifle. Carrying it around for a few hours can be tedious if you are used to lighter rifles. It is definitely an adult toy. Plenty of power, accuracy is not bad after some practice. Decent gun for the money… Read Full Review

Very pleased with my Powermate 1000. Isn't perfect, but it works quite well for what I use it for....keeping the squirrels out of my pecan trees.
Killed 18 so far with my old 1958 Sheridan pellet gun and six more with the Powermate 1000. Seems to work pretty well… Read Full Review

I can't make out the placement for the spring in the trigger assembly.
I've got everyting back together but one item. I can't make out the placement for the spring in the trigger assembly. Not the regular round spring that you don't realy see behind the trigger. But the longer spring with the straights and other bends. It's the only thing holding me back!
I have already talk to the daisy support people. they were nice enough wanting me to ship it back and they would fix it. The… Read Full Review
