All in all, a very nice weapon. I shot thousands of rounds through this pistol back in the early 1990s. It has been stored in the basement for quite a few years. Now I have it out and am beginning to enjoy it again. I entered some postal matches using this pistol and placed or won a couple of times. (read more)

I finally bought this because I'd read on-line raves about the great trigger and the accuracy. They're right.
I adjusted the trigger back to the point where just a smooth, short, easy pull causes it to shoot. I'm not a marksman but I can put thirty shots in a two inch area from twenty or twenty five feet away. If I was patient, which I'm not, it could shoot very, very tight groupings. It's accuracy is very, very consistent.
The trigger is so smooth and easy I make it a point to never take... (read more)

The Daisy 747 is very nicely made, hefty, accurate air pistol. It is very easy to load pellets and the metal bolt pushes the pellet properly into the breach. If it does not and it jams, it is easy to dig out the pellet and put a new one in. It is pneumatic which means there is not any recoil and when loading you do not have to worry about an accidental discharge which would smash your finger. It is very quiet and accurate. You can actually watch the pellets shoot to the target. With the... (read more)

The Daisy Avanti 747 Triumph is a very, very accurate, .177 caliber, "one-pump" pellet pistol, at a "street price," as of this writing, of $130 (U.S.). It is also very quiet which makes it a great choice for indoor use as well as in a back yard. It is definitely "barrel heavy" and not a good choice for children, unless they are adult size. Total weight is 2.91 pounds; the steel rifled barrel is 9.6" long; and overall length is 13.5". I received mine a few days ago and this is what I... (read more)

We have 22 Daisy 747 pistols in our club. 12 older models that have been 1000's upon 1000's of pellets. We have purchased 10 new 747 pistols in the last year and they are terrible. Barrels are loose at the muzzle end. Had to wrap tape around the end that fits in to the front sight. Some have taken as many as 7 wrapes of scotch tape. (read more)

My Daisy 747 wanted to shoot well but was hampered by the trigger. Daisy says it should adjust down to 1lb, but mine would only go to 56oz. Quick and easy dis-assembly showed the mechanism to be sturdy, well designed and easy to work on.
The problem turned out to be a dry and misaligned sear, which was easy to correct. The mainspring tensions the sear halves, but the spring seats were so tight that the spring was holding the sear out of proper alignment. A few seconds with a file and the... (read more)

I have been looking for an entry level match pistol for some time. After trying out the following: Baikal IZH46, Gamo Compact and Weihrauch HW40, I finally settled on the Daisy Avanti 747 without seeing or trying it out before hand. I couldn't get hold of one to try out or locate any UK dealers who could order it for me, so I searched the internet and found Pilkington guns based in Tennessee, USA. The staff were so helpful and I couldn't believe how trouble free it was to buy the gun from... (read more)

I Had shot the Daisy 747 1500 pellets when it broke. Sent to Daisy and I am waiting for "valve body" replacement for four months for a repair. Many calls and e-mails made." Parts are defective" have to wait for new supply. Daisy has had my pistol longer than I owned it. My advise, Don't buy Daisy products. (read more)

I own a Daisy 717 and 747 (both wearing the 777 grips).
The 747 sports a 4X scope and a base made from Jay Axelrod in Florida. It is a fine base and I have had nothing but happy shooting with the combo. (read more)
