Summer Fun! GOOD TRIGGER PULL
would call BB pistols that shoot in or near
the 400 + feet per second
range the hard hitter category. This means BBs fired from these
have a fair amount of destructive force. Anything that shoots
through cans made of steel is not a wimpy pistol at all. The
Daisy POWERLINE 426 is definitely in the hard hitter category, blasting
right through cans made of steel. Maximum velocity is rated at
430 fps, a real power-hitter.
Shooters who have experienced BB feeding problems will probably not
have them with this gun. A simple feeding mechanism consisting of
a 15 round magazine on top easily indicates how many BBs are
left to shoot and is built into the gun so no lost magazines or failure-to-feed BBs here.

The blister packaging helps prevent tampering and people fooling around with your gun.
Sights on this gun are fixed and gun tends to shoot a bit high.
Picatinny rail for attaching accessories such as laser sights, etc..
Those who don't wish to spend much will find this a pretty dependble
pistol for the money, about $ 19.54 at WalMart, may go as high as about
$ 29.99 to $ 34.99 elsewhere, a very affordable sidearm. This airgun is $ 30.60 to $ 39.97 today on ebay.com.
Trigger pull on this pistol is much better than some other double
action only pistols and is fairly crisp. It is much better than
the Bear River BR 45 which has the worst trigger pull of all pistols on this site.
The Umarex XBG and XCP are also a bit harder and longer to pull than
this delightful pistol which has a very
solid feel, yet is only 0.9 of a pound in weight. Length - 6.85",
Height - about 5/38".
crossbolt safety is just above the trigger and easy to operate.
It has a very audible snap
which indicates a change from off to on or on to off. It stays
securely at either on or off, a very safe gun to operate. When you push the safety to the
left the red shows on it indicating the pistol is ready to fire, a good
thing you can say about the black finish on these black guns is it's
fairly scuff resistant. I like the finish. It doesn't have any
white writing on it which would make it look fakey, just all business
looking, very nice.
shot a 1 & 1/4 inch 7 shot group from 20 feet with one flyer, not
bad accuracy from such an inexpensive pistol. 3 of the shots are
actually touching together.
These two pages
of targets were included in the blister pack along with
instructions and safety warnings.
this Daisy 426 POWERLINE CO2 BB Pistol is a lot of bang for the buck,
about a $twenty buck. This is a light in weight, compact, handy sidearm
could easily repel a dog attack, so it's nice for a back-up emergency
weapon, easily worth twice the (WalMart) price. I was reaching for the Umarex XCP and XBG a lot but I tend to reach for the Daisy 426 now when I think about the nice trigger pull it has.
Phone books make good
BB traps. You can recover the BBs and shoot them again and
again. Penetration into the phone book with the Daisy 426 was
about 90 pages! Thats about 160 double sided pages plus
consideration for the thickness of the cover and target. Heavy
denting and tearing occurred even farther into the book.

Remember, CO2 guns are
not toys and can be dangerous if mishandled. Always wear shooting
glasses when firing any gun, especially BB guns. HAPPY
CO2 Airgun Suggestions
drop of Pellgunoil on the tip of the CO2 cartridge where it is pierced,
at the top of it. It seals better.
2. Let the springs in
the magazines rest by unloading them, rotating
them. Alternate the use of magazines to keep them new.
3. Remove the CO2
cartridge after use and let the main seal rest.
Keep your gun new this way.
4. Insert a CO2
cartridge and snug it up without piercing and charging
up the gun. It's ready for use but under no strain.
5. Alternating the use
of CO2 guns instead of using the same one all
the time can keep them newer. Switch off sometimes.
6. Try to limit dry
firing the gun when it's charged with CO2 and isn't
loaded with BBs.
7. Lubricate the parts
once in awhile.
8. Don't leave your CO2
gun outside in the elements. It may be
part plastic but there are metal parts inside which could rust.
If you are having BB feeding trouble, the BBs don't load & shoot,
try loading only 18 or 19 BBs into the magazine, not 20. (Removeable
magazine type guns)
10. Always wear
shooting glasses or safety glasses when shooting any
gun, especially BB guns.
