DAISY AVANTI Model 747 Triumph
Single-pump pneumatic with side pump lever;standard bolt action. AVANTI's finest match-grade pistol. The Avanti 747 is a great air pistol for high school, scouts, 4-H, and NRA target competition and training at a great price. Match-grade air pistols generally cost hundreds of dollars, sometimes well over $1,000. The 747 Triumph is an exception to the rule. This .177 caliber single-stroke pneumatic air pistol truly delivers match accuracy at a suggested retail price of under $250.
The Triumph weighs about two and one-third pounds and measures 13 and a half inches from end to end. It has a blade and ramp front sight and an open rear sight that is fully adjustable for windage and elevation simply by turning the appropriate screw on the top or right side of the sight.
The single-stage trigger is adjustable from one to four and a half pounds of pull by turning a small screw located in the pistol frame just under the trigger guard. The grips are molded, checkered plastic with a contoured thumb rest. Left-hand grips are available at additional cost. What really sets the Triumph apart is its Lothar Walther match-grade barrel which is crowned and choked for maximum accuracy.
Loading the Triumph is straightforward. First, put the pistol on safe by pushing the trigger safety from left to right so that no red is showing. Next, rotate the bolt handle upward and pull it back. This cocks the action. The Triumph cannot fire with the bolt open, but the bolt must be open to pump the gun.
Next, pump the gun by pulling the pump lever, located on the left side of the pistol, as far forward as possible then returning it to its original position by pushing on the curved end of the lever with the palm of your hand. About 17 pounds of force are required to complete the pumping stroke.
With the bolt back and the gun pumped, load a pellet, solid end first, into the feed track in front of the bolt. Push the bolt forward, then rotate the bolt handle down. Make sure the Triumph is pointed in a safe direction and click the safety off. You're now ready to fire. Squeeze the trigger, and the pellet will zip downrange at around 360 feet per second, depending upon the weight of the pellet.
The 747 Triumph is a favorite of IHMSA silhouette shooters not only because it is the most accurate air pistol that qualifies for the air pistol production class, but also because it is competitive in all other IHMSA air pistol classes. Many world records have been set with the 747 Triumph, and it can be used for entry-level 10-meter air pistol competition.
In addition, the Triumph is an excellent pistol for high-accuracy friendly competition in the back yard. With a Triumph, a tin of pellets, and a box of ShatterBlast targets, you'll likely be amazed at how far and how accurately you can shoot with an air pistol.
An adjustable piston in the single-pump pneumatic system for consistent velocity maintains pinpoint accuracy, shot after shot. Also features an adjustable trigger and match-grade choked steel barrel. This is a no-nonsense match pistol

Very nice piece for backyard target shooting. Very quiet. Nicely built, with very nice sights I've only had mine for three months or so, but have absolutely no complaints. If they hold up as I am informed by other reviews, it should provide this old man entertainment for the rest of my life. I had to replace the grips since I am a leftie, but always enjoy plastic grips over wood, for many reasons. My back yard provides a fifteen yard range, and this piece is perfect for that.
Pros:All seems very good.

Avanti 747 Triumph Match Target

I give Airgun Depot high marks for shipping quickly and canceling my first order so I could purchase this gun. That said, I can't praise Daisy, out of the box this gun was a mess, the sights were hardly screwed in when assembled, and the gun malfunctioned about once in every 3 shots. I should have sent the gun to Daisy for repair, but I didn't want to pay for shipping when I had just paid for it. So I took it apart (I am a Mechanic) and found a clearance problem between the sear and the bolt safety, a lever that drops when the bolt is pushed forward so the sear can move when the trigger is pulled. I filed down the back of the sear, shortened the blocking lever, enlarged the notch for the blocking lever to drop into, and bent the tip that contacts the bolt so the bolt could fully move the lever. The Casting of the trigger parts were rough and I cleaned those up with an emery cloth. If you choose to do this be careful not to move the safety when taking the gun apart the detente ball and spring will launch when removed. I don't have a scale to measure the trigger pull but I believe it is between 1 and 2 lbs. It is now very dependable and accurate I have purchased a BSA red dot sight and I will be installing that soon. I will make custom wood grips, the plastic grips are very good out of the box but a bit sharp at the edges. Since buying this gun I have tried a Crossman 1377 and I wonder if the Avanti is worth all the extra money.

Very nice shooting pistol. I had read negative comments on plastic grip, but after using this pistol I can say that the grips are fine. This pistol is accurate. Like the trigger. For the price this is an excellent pistol.

As the reviews suggest, this is a very accurate little pistol. Can "outshoot" me, especially with my old eyes. When I do my part, this little jewel can shoot cloverleafs and even stack pellets on top of one another. Sighted in quickly. Nice trigger. Well balanced for my hand(s). Yes, some plastic, but a very accurate pistol (and about half the price of an IZH).

Very accurate gun. Has a plastic bolt that that's about the worst thing about the gun. Everything else is brilliant. Accuracy is on par with the best. Well built and a great value. I have the IZH-46M as well and would choose that over this one if I had too choose (but this one is a LOT less money). I like the trigger better on the IZH. If you do research, you'll see that this gun holds its own against some of the best.
