I bought my Daisy 188 at K-Mart in N.Conway NH[now gone] in 1985 for $12.00 In the 24 years I've owned it I've had nothing but great times with it. I taught my daughter how to shoot with it, my nephew and some of my daughter's friends as well. My FAVORITE thing to do with the 188 is at cookouts. Get people togethor and kick in a buck. Get a "soda" [beer] can and put it out at 10' everyone takes a shot, then move to 15', 20' 25' etc. Those that don't hit it don't move to the next distance. If... (read more)

I have the metal bodied version of the daisy model 188 pistol. I like the heavy feel and the parts don't wear out like they would on a plastic model. I strictly use it with bb's. and in the 25+ years I've owned it I've never shot any small animals with it. I use it on dogs and cats that come around messing with my pets. It's just strong enough to give a good sting and leave a little welt. I used it on myself before shooting an animal with it.
I've considered taking it apart and making it... (read more)

Decent, but low powered bb pistol. Got my Daisy Model for 2 bucks at a garage sale and it works great. Wondering if anyone has ever modded one with a stronger spring or whatever the propulsion system is... (read more)

My Dad and Uncle each had one of these. I used them several times while growing up but, opted for several modern Daisy's (mid 1960's) for my own. They are long gone but, not forgotten. I remember the ammo was a ,118 graphite BB Probably left over from the 2 years when expendable metals were scarce. I am told that a 6 shot can be used effectively. I had a chance but, flinched, to buy one of these at our local gun shows for about thirty bucks sans the box and in very good condition. Later I... (read more)

I bought this Daisy model 188 Air Pistol when they were not using plastic and it sure makes a difference. The more plastic the lighter the gun. so what, I like the solid feel and the durability of good old iron. I have had this piece some 20 years now and will probably have it another 20 if I can just get a new spring. (read more)

I have the plastic version of the Daisy model 188 Pistol for ten years now.
it's a nice pistol, comfortable in the hand, accurate in short distance and fun to shoot.
the bad points are: 1 The sights, primary the fixed rear, are to crude.
2 The cocking arm is a little weak.
3 The loading port opens every time so i close it with a adhesive band.
For a first pistol it's good. Buy it if you find one. (read more)

Overall for a kids first pistol the Daisy model 188 Pistol is great and low powered so as not to do any real damage if you miss the target, the older model form 79 to 83 was both bb and pellet and was made of metal
comfortable in the hand, decent and accurat at 20 feet...good for a kids first pistol. (read more)
