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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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...

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 more)

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...

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.

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 more)

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.

I have nothing to complain about this rifle excepting the trigger, which is manageable once you get a feel for it. Having put 50 slugs down it, i can now pull the trigger back to within a few mm of the actual sear so as to let the shot off with minimal disturbance to my aim.
I have seen nothing better in terms of accuracy, i shot a ragged hole 10mm (25/64 for you who oppose progress) from sitting at 10yds.

I bought the Daisy Powerline 1000 from Acadamy Sports for $79. It came with a 3-9x32 scope. My first session (after the big bang first shot) consisted of 5 scope sight-in shots. The first shot was off target. The fifth shot was center of 1" circle at 20 yds. The next five shots were all in the circle. I was amazed at this accuracy for a low cost rifle with no break in. Subsequent shots were not quite as good, but I think I may have been getting tired just from cocking the thing.

Shoots great, but the kick is heavy for an air rifle, the screws are loose, it is very, very loud and handling could be better. Oh, and the little plastic trigger is wretched.
And yet, there is something to like about a rifle that can drop a squirrel at 30 yards with ease and that holds a one-inch pattern at 40 yards, all the while costing less than $150.
Yes, I like it more than I don't. I'd recommend it, but if noisy guns that kick, handle poorly and that have bad triggers don't appeal to... (read more)

All round, a good air-rifle. It does kick but, not all that bad. You just have to compensate a little for it. On ine the trigger si a bit of a hard pull agbout half way through and that can through off the shot but, I intend to try to soften it a bit. It's probably just the one that I got though so, don't let that prevent you from getting one. I did change out the scpoe for a more powerful one too. The scope that it comes with is good but, it is accurate enough to use a much stronger one. I... (read more)

Trigger pull can be adjusted one of three ways....either remove the adjustment screw and pilot the hole 1/8 in deep with same diameter as screw head...allows it to go deeper, or remove screw and replace with one 1/8 in longer, or remove trigger and grind off some of the plastic to allow it to go deeper.

This is my second review of this rifle after over one year of using it. Still keeps velocity as indicated in manuals. Medium or even below average accuracy.
After one year of shooting it, the synthetic stock cracked from tightening of the frontal bolts. That looks hopeless but low price makes buying another one affordable.

I have had this gun for over 3 years and have to say it is a good gun with a little "tweaking". Fist off I have the synthetic stock and it resonates the sound of the spring when you fire the rifle. To help eliminate this problem I drilled a very small hole in the stock and filled it full of insulating foam (the kind like you use to fill in cracks in walls and around windows in your home.) Doing this reduced the heard spring recoil by at least half. Second I took the trigger mechanism... (read more)
