“fun gun”

Written on: 04/11/2011 by Wallyb (1 review written)

A friend gave me the 717 as the seals were leaking so I sent it to Daisy & for $34 including return postage they replaced all the seals etc. & it is a fun gun to shoot. Lube it with Crosman pelgunoil & don't pump more than 1 time. I get 400 fps W/ RWS 7g pellets. My ser. # is 4h21969. The only negative about it is I wish it had a scope rail for mounting a red dot scope… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/02/2010

Daisy ROCKS! My old Powerline 717 had seen better days. The piston was leaking and the rear sight was cracked. I called Daisy to see if I could get it serviced. For 35.00 (including return shipping) they completely refurbished my gun! It's like brand new! Not only that, but I shipped it to them on a Friday and received the refurbish gun back the following Thursday!… Read Full Review

It is amazing to see what people write about their weapons,with your car you lube the pistons,with an Air pistol you lube the piston as well .With my Daisy Powerline 717 since day one I have kept the piston moist and have had no probs.The only trouble is convincing my grandson,s that it is mine and I do like to use it occasionally.That is as I can see the only thing that can cause hassle.Like any weapon Lube it enjoy it.

This Daisy Powerline 717 gun is great for pinpoint accuracy and competition shooting.The sights are really nice and it's really neat looking.It's pretty easy to use and it's pretty loud as well.I pump mine two times for maxium power.The safe is nice too.I did not pay 140$ for it.I only payed 50$ for mine.I would never pay 140$ for a pellet gun.This gun is awsome! Good points are pretty much every thing on the gun. The sights are great,It's powerful and accurate it's easy to pump once you get… Read Full Review

The Daisy Powerline is extremely accurate. the sights are extremely clear and the grip very comfortable.the trigger is also very smooth. unfortunately my pneumatic pressure chamber has gone faulty,pistol does not hold pressure, you can actually hear the air leaking out. it is the best pistol i have had for marksmanship,better than webley hurricane, tempest, scorpion, hw45, and a few others… Read Full Review

all you need to do is replace the rubber o-ring on the piston and lubricate the piston.

The other day i was in my fathers loft and i found my old Daisy powerline717 that i had when I was a kid of about 12 or 13 (1992 - 1993ish). In the mist of time I had totally forgotten about my favourite air pistol and was egar to use it again. To my suprise it still worked well (better than expected) and was still accurate as i remember : ). However my joy was short lived as one of my friends got his hands on it and has broken the cocking bolt and rather than go and buy another air pistol i… Read Full Review

This is a single-stroke pneumatic gun. You are never supposed to pump it more than once per shot.

multi-pumping a single-stroke pneumatic is equivalent to a hamster running inside the spinning wheel....alot of work and getting nowhere, lol

Written on: 30/10/2008

The daisy powerline is a single pump air pistol , no matter how many pumps you put in it the power will not rise, this is due to the absence of a compression cylinder like those on the multi stroke crossman 1377, the powerline only uses the amount of air that is compressed between the stroke piston head and the release valve engaged against the sear, lot of pumping for no reason mate.

Written on: 11/11/2007 by sureshooter (1 review written)

Over all the Daisy did well on the design of the 700 series. I bought the 777 new is the box at an auction for $82.00. It has already paid itself off 10 times in competition. I have the 777 (717) it has excellent accuracy I place 6 shots in a 1.5" red dot @ 20 yards. The rear sight adjustments are user friendly. I have finished the walnut pistol grips with polyurethane, it adds highlights to a well made air pistol. I suggest users place fluorescent Orange or Red on the rear of the front sight… Read Full Review

My Daisy Powerline 717 is about 15 years old and has fired several thousand rounds. The gun is very quite and balances beautifully in the hand. The factory trigger is light and very predictable.

Written on: 23/02/2004 by holyokster (11 reviews written)

The Daisy 717 is the least expensive of the 7X7 series. The other is the 747 that costs about 30% more and has an adjustable trigger and Lother barrel. The 777 had wood grips and is now discontinued. None the less, the 717 was accurate enough to fire a 555 out of 600 in world competition out of the box a few years ago. No doubt the shooter had something to do with that. The gun has amazing shot to shot consistency averaging about 360 fps. For about $70 US it's a bargin. The only thing I… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2004 by norm (2 reviews written)

Bought my Daisy Powerline 717 gun at sport-mart for $69.95 here in the USA. I only shoot pneumatics, I own a mac-1 mod. as2250 and a 15 year old benjamin pump 22 cal. after much research I got the 717 and I was very happy with the accuracy of this gun out the box, 1/2inch groups at 15 meters with the open sights, this is to be a starling gun and has proven it self capable of this at 20 meters. Over 15 kills and only owned it for 3days now. Very quiet gun. well worth the money… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/01/2004 by ricdoug (11 reviews written)

I belong to a gentlemen's and (yes) gentlewomen's airgun club. Most of us shoot every day. We have a large variety of airguns, but most of us have a Daisy 717 (or the Avanti 747 - a 717 with an adjustable trigger and a Lothar Walther rifled barrel) as our match pistol. At 10 meters quarter inch groups are common from the offhand using stock sights… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/10/2008

I have the 717 and the 1377 and both shoot wonderfully. For the 1377 add a trigger shoe and change the trigger spring. I sell ultra light trigger springs. These two pistols are probably the best air pistol value for the dollar.

Written on: 10/11/2008

you can make the trigger pull on the 1377 very light by replacing it with a weaker spring from the hardware store. and it's nice to install a trigger shoe from crosman. The 717 can also be lightened up by taking out the original spring and smacking the spring with a hammer a few times to compress it a bit. I hated the trigger on the 717 until i did this, now i'll keep the gun.

I have just purchased a secondhand Daisy Powerline 717 for £25 in brilliant condition.I have heard that these pneumatic pistols have match grade accuracy,and it's true.I have been hitting 1 1/2 inch groups at 15 metres all day!!!!
The grips are perfect,and for such a big pistol the balance is brilliant.
What more can I say,get one,they are great paper punchers… Read Full Review
