IVE HAD THE EAGLE FOR ABOUT 3 YEARS NOW AND IVE OWNED OTHER BB GUNS. BUT THIS ONE STOOD THE TEST AND PASSED. I CAN SAY I KILLED ABOUT 30 TO 40 SQUIRRELS AND COUNTLESS BIRDS. I PUT A SCOPE ON MINE SO I CAN PUT THE BB OR PELLET FARTHER THAN THE GUN WAS MENT FOR. FARTHEST KILL I MADE WAS JUST UNDER 600 FT… Read Full Review

If you didn't grow up with a BB gun in your hand---you just aint into guns. As a baby boomer now, my 856 sat in the garage for 10 to 15 years unused. I needed it the other day and it pumped up as designed and delivered a lethal shot to my varmint problem. A great air rifle, thanks Daisy. Big Al the ammo man's pal… Read Full Review

This is a great gun. The scope that comes with it sucks though so I bought a really nice scope and I have never missed with the new scope. The gun is very quiet and the ammo is cheap. Overall this is a great gun for beginners and fun to shot. The only thing I don't like about this kind of gun is it only hold one bullet at a time so you have to reload after every shot… Read Full Review

this Daisy Powerline 856 is an awesome gun for plinking and shooting. i got this gun as a christmas present in 2004 and have killed countless birds and sqirrels with it. the scope that comes with it is kind of sucky though and is impossible to sight in.
i shoot this gun with the sights on it.this gun takes a lot of practicing with.
over all this is a great gun and i would recomend it to anyne who is looking for a good quality airgun without breaking the bank… Read Full Review

The Daisy Powerline 856 is accurate, mechanically reliable, water proofish. The reason bbs wont work right is because if yours is rifled like mine, you should fire them with that gun, it was made to use .177 cal pellets, it should never fire bbs it will mess up the gun. mine is really accurate, i took the scope off of mine because the scope needed to be adjusted and its a really hard scope to ajust so i just took it off and used it with no scope but thats the reason your gun is like that and… Read Full Review

For the price, I find it excellent. For teenage kids it is very convenient since it is light. Fairly accurate. Came with a 4x scope… Read Full Review

For the monay it's really not that bad. It does have a rifled barrel which probably helps it out quite a bit… Read Full Review

Great rifle overall. Excellent plinking rifle, can shoot BB's if you don't point the barrel down because they will roll out. Not very well fps but it's a fun rifle… Read Full Review

Very nice beginner/youth rifle. This gun was handed down to me by my father, so maybe it was better when it was new. So if you want an inexpensive, but fairly cheap quality this is for you… Read Full Review

In fairness to my statements, I must say I have never shot .177 pellets from this gun. That said, because of the history associated with this gun, I would not throw it away, but that is the only reason that I still have it. It is actually a danger to someone standing beside the shooter… Read Full Review

I purchased this gun and sent it straight back! I have never had a Daisy gun before and frankly expected an American gun to be finished off a little better than this.
The gun itself seems to have plenty power but looks like something you would pick up for a kid in a local toy shop. Even the trigger and guard was made of plastic and just did not feel like an air weapon.
A wooden stock ( or even heaver plastic) and metal trigger would make all the difference… Read Full Review

The Daisy Powerline 856 is an awesome air gun. Very good for the money fairly powerful I've shoot the break barrel design 1000fps and it is definitely a rival when comparing cost to use. why would you need a 2-300 gun for plinking cans unless you do it professionally… Read Full Review

The Daisy 856 Model was one of my first airguns I got it at blackwatercutlery.com as a remanufactured. A first look I thought "Hey that Ain't to bad" Which is wasn't. Came with 4x scope and is nicly reliable. Cheap too. (In trade for "Not the best of plastic")… Read Full Review
