Daisy's most popular air rifle! The 880 shoots both BBs and pellets, and it does so with amazing power. This multi-pump pneumatic sends ammo roaring downrange! BBs go 750 fps (Never shoot BBs at hard objects!), and pellets go 715 fps. You can adjust power and velocity by the number of pumps you put into the rifle (up to 10 pumps). The synthetic molded woodgrain Monte Carlo stock has a raised cheekpiece and deep checkering on the grip and forearm. For more accuracy, mount a scope, red dot or laser on the 11mm dovetails on the receiver (made of engineering resin).

It's a BB repeater (holds 50 BBs) and a single-shot pellet shooter. Take this rifle plinking, target shooting or if you just want to have fun! It's lightweight, so you can shoot for hours.

Out shoots guns 4x cost.
September 22, 2016
I have guns that cost 4 times as much as this and within the 20 yard range this little gem out shoots or equals all of them. (35 rifles now).
Of course the further you get the less accurate it becomes but still it's way above what it should be for the asking price.

I put on a decent 4x scope and cleaned it as I would any rifle and off I went shooting bulls eyes much to my surprise.
Perhaps I got a good one. They are made in China after all so quality control although better now, not always consistent.

This is the same model as has been around forever with minor improvements along the way even though it has more plastic and less metal and wood.

Of course, although it was shooting fine, I had to tear it apart and do some polishing to make the stiff trigger a tad less stiff, at lease more predictable.
Plenty of online support for this model.
It can be a tinkerers dream gun if you want.
ProsCheap Proven design. Accurate beyond it's worth. Metal trigger and innards. No C02 No outside air source needed, and virtually no kick back.
ConsStiiiiiff trigger. But gets better with use. Plasticy but quality feeling-- -- less toy like.

Best bang for the buck
May 26, 2016
I bought one new a few years ago. It now has over 20,000 bbs through it (most courtesy of my neighbour's grandson) and probably over 100,000 pump strokes. It looks and shoots like new and will still shoot 1/2" groups at 20 meters with RWS Hobbies. Store the gun with a few pumps in it (but no pellet/bb!) to keep the seals from drying out.
ProsIt's darn near indestructible and very accurate. Shoots as well at 20 meters as a $300 springer.
ConsIt's mostly plastic and feels like a toy.

I have had this rifle for a few months now and it is my most powerful of my pumpers, I have both the m4-177 and the mk177 and it easel matches the mk177 in power (it was the most powerful pump rifle I had ) super accurate out of the box, with the open sites able to hit nickel sized groups at 20 yards , before but with a 4 X 32 scope I never miss now, this is a great rifle for beginners or as my case experienced air gunners. (I have many kinds of air rifles , along with my rim fire and center fire rifles get this you won't be disappointed !
ProsAccurate out of the box , very easy to pump, good for targets or small pest control, very light, and quiet,
ConsMy feel to light and cheap but is not.

Great gun especially for it's price
September 20, 2014
This gun is just like the powerline 901 read my review on this site. The only difference is the pump handle seems less stable but not an issue considering the pumping effort is easy and nothing compared to a benjamin 397/392. It is also loud when pumping and it catches a notch when u complete the stroke so it takes a little to get it open. You can grind that down and put felt in the gun or on the pumping handle where the two meet to dampen the sound. Accuracy is great and same as 901(again read review)
ProsAccuracy price
ConsFake look synthetic wood grain stock (painting mine black)

Shame on Daisy
June 22, 2014
Out of nostalgia when I went to get some air guns for my step sons and one for myself I bought these three of them. I went through two of these as a youngster and when they broke it was due to NO fault of their own I really really used the heck out of em. But from the initial unboxing these have been disapointing. Lots of plastic where there was formerly metal The barrels were not tightly bedded in the shrouds causing hideous innacuracy the scopes were only gotten because the with scope cost the same as without but when I ordered I got three scopes of better quality for them never even unwrapped the freebie scopes. I have managed to get decent accuracy on mine by drilling small holes in the shroud (could have been one but my own mistake required a second) and injecting a couple syringes of epoxy. It is also way pickier about what pellets it will shoot well then my old one my old one shot everything well it seemed just needing a loppy little sight adjustment between pellet types but this one is super picky I finally settled on Gamo Tomahawk pellets as it does now shoot these into a single hole at 20 yards. I doubt seriously that this one will last anywhere near as long as my Old two did ( many thousands of shots each) but then I don't shoot like I did so it will probably last me well enough and hopefully long enough to hand off to a grandson. If it was to be done over I'd have spent the extra to get the Benjamins though they may not be as well made as they were either. Hate that nobody seems to make good stuff anymore and if they come close they want more than a decent 22lr costs. Shame on daisy.
ProsWith a bit of work and epoxy will shoot well enough for a trainer.
ConsCheaply and sloppily built, scope is trash, A FAR cry from what this model used to be. Should even be able to give it the same model name it is so far removed.

May 9, 2014
My Son bought me one a few years ago for Christmas, I already have some nice pellet rifles so at first site I wasn't really impressed but it was a gift and I was grateful so I took it to my backyard range to site it in. My rifle didn't come with a scope so I added a nice mildot 3- 10 power scope to it. After a few shots sighting it in I could see this rifle was going to be accurate...very accurate with premier pellets. In the last two years plus, I have shot thousands of pellets through it with no problems. i shoot this rifle more than any other I own.
ProsAccurate and dependable
ConsNone for a rifle at this price.

i had an 880 as a kid and it was great. the model 880 was how many fps it could shoot but not anymore. I bought 2 of these for my sons and they are both crap. plastic parts rather than the metal parts on the old one. the rear site fell off of one of them on the first day we used it and I had to buy a scope. its inaccurate. the one I has as a kid I could hit a soda can at 75 to 100 feet. the ones I bought for my sons can't hit a 5 gal bucket at 50 to 75 feet. it is impossible to site in because it shoots wild. 18 inch groups at 50 feet. pass on this one.

Faithful for years of fun
October 6, 2013
This was my first gun years ago. I spent most of my summers shooting. After thousands of rounds of pellets and even more bbs it finally gave in. It has plenty of power I used it to hunt small game from birds to jackrabbits (shot placement is key, I don't remember letting an animal suffer once). It's accuracy was superb I sighted it in once and never touched it again. It was missed after it broke. I've since moved up but as a starter rifle, or someone with a weaker arm who can't pump a stronger gun I couldn't recommend this gun more.
ProsDurable Cheap Accurate Easy to pump Powerful enough to hunt with
ConsMine broke after strenuous use over years.

September 28, 2013
At first this gun is great for the value but after about a week of use the front sight came loose and now is very wobbly. Now the front grip and butt plate are both wobbly and the gun is terribly inaccurate past about 30 yards.
Consworst product I've ever purchased from daisy with horrible quality. can be ghastly inaccurate and is very wobbly.

I got this rifle for me and Red Ryders for my kids so we could go shooting together out back of our house. Been a great gun right out of the box.
ProsNice rifle for the price. accurate and powerful enough to pop through any can. nice to be able to shoot bb's and pellets.
ConsTakes a little while to figure out how to get pellets into the chamber smoothly. Once you figure that out, not to bad.

First BB gun
April 27, 2013
This was my first bb gun many years ago. I had so much fun shooting targets and cans in the back yard. I even killed a squirell with it once (bb not pellet too). This gun was definitley well engineered and manufactured. I never actually fired pellets out of it so I cannot tell you about that but when it comes to bb's this gun is a wonderful starter, plinking, or even small game rifle. The only downside is having to pump it a couple of times for each shot, but it makes you focus on each shot and build some arm muscle.
ProsGreat buy, reliable, good starter gun, accurate, powerful, good sights, uses pellets or bb's
Consrequires more than one pump for accurate shooting

Best pump for the money
March 28, 2013
I have been shooting for well over a decade and this is my favorite pump I have owned. I use this primarily for hunting and target shooting. It is very accurate with pellets and great with BB's. It seems to be the most accurate with about 6-8 pumps, but shoots a bit high using BB's with 10 but that could very well be just my particular gun. I would recommend this as a target fun gun and for light pest control (up to squirrel sized). It has no problem taking down a squirrel with a proper shot. I would recommend Crosman Destroyers for this task or Gamo Tomahawks. Some day, I plan on passing this gun down to my son for his first air rifle. I think it will give him as many amazing memories and a good foundation of shooting as it did me.
Pros-800 fps BB's and 650 pellets, this is great for a pump -Long pump handle that's quiet and easy to pump -Very accurate -Lasts a very long time

March 28, 2013
I honestly love this rifle! I have had mine for over 15 years, fired thousands upon thousands of rounds through it without ever performing any sort of maintenance (not recommended). It just recently begin to show an inability to hold pressure when pumped. This rifle is incredibly accurate, the sights were dead on right out of the box, and it has enough power to take down small avian targets as well as smaller game. I primarily used it for backyard plinking and target practice. Occasional pest elimination too, but overall can't wait to get a replacement for my first one!
ProsLow cost, extremely reliable, and low maintenance. Incredibly accurate.
ConsMy stock got a tad bit wobbly after about a year of use. not enough to affect performance but enough to notice.

Daisy 880 - Versatile, accurate and powerful
December 28, 2012
I've been using a Daisy 880 which is an inexpensive (around $45 U.S.) multipump. In spite of the fact that it's a low end gun, with plastic stock etc, it's a wonderful bargain! It's versatile with power and accuracy. In the summer, I use it outside and with just 5 pumps it has an accurate shooting level at 70 feet. In the winter or inclement weather, it's safe to use indoors by just pumping twice. A box full of paper magazines packed 3 deep, or a 10%u201D x 10%u201D box with duct seal will stop a BB and prevent richochet. Canvas or carpet makes a good backdrop, but wood should be back of that, as a direct hit will penetrate these materials at 2-3 pumps. This gun holds 50 BB's and reloading is easy, so I can shoot without interruption. I found loading the pellets to be awkward and tedious with this gun, so I only use BB's. It's surprisingly accurate. Indoors with 2-3 pumps and using the iron sight, I am able to consistently hit the bottom of a 2 inch cat food can at 28 feet.

The pumping handle is very easy to pump, as the direction makes use of shoulder muscles. Other rifles with the pump mechanism forward, require more wrist and elbow, which I find more difficult. At 8 pumps it easily penetrated an old steel soup can, so there's lots of spare power. I don't hunt and don't like to harm or kill anything, so the iron sights are fine. The one problem I had with the rear iron sight was that I couldn't focus on it well, especially in low light levels. Since I can't shoot with reading glasses, that was a problem (my problem, not the gun's). I solved this with a carefully cut out piece of iridescent orange self-stick name label, which I pasted to the rear sight. Now I can focus on it easily and I am shooting with great accuracy.

The pumping handle is of lever type and works easily, yet the edges of the plastic can be wearing on the hand when frequently pumping 7 times or more. I solved this by wrapping a couple turns of leather about 3 inches wide (soft side up) around the lever and gluing it in place. Now I have the comforting feel of soft leather whenever I pump the rifle. This rifle is an incredible bargain, and because it%u2019s a multipump with variable power, it%u2019s good for indoors and out.
ProsThe Daisy 880 is very light, has variable power, and is dead on accurate using just the open sights. A wonderful bargain!
ConsI'm quite satisfied with this gun, but my wish list would be: wooden stock, wooden forearm, and metal bolt. I'd be glad to pay a bit more for those extras.

BEST rifle for the price point!
October 22, 2012
I can't emphasize enough just how "worth it" this rifle is!

The pumping action is a lot easier than the Crosman (and other) multi-pump rifles I've seen. Probably because the pump lever is unusually long (all the way from the grip-end to the trigger guard). Also, the pump has a nice durable handle to make things easier on the shooter. After you get some practice with it (and get your arms in shape if they're not already), you'll have no problem spending a whole day shooting this gun! I find that you only need 7 pumps to "plink" accurately at 50 yards. For pest control or small game hunting, you'll want to pump it the full 10 times for a cleaner kill. (Note: I've never used this for that purpose, but at 800 fps., I expect that it performs admirably).

As other reviewers have noted, the "open" iron sights on this gun are very accurate, and I find that I can reliably hit a soda can at 50 yards if I'm focusing properly. Cans and plastic bottles don't stand a chance! The rear sight has a "notched ramp" adjustment device, so you can compensate for range/elevation. The only flaw I see with the sights is that they're non-removable (welded/molded in-place). If you're planning on replacing them with something other than a scope, you're out-of-luck. It does, however, have a "dovetail" scope mount.

The trigger is a little stiff, but not to the point of being a problem. I find that if I aim, rest my finger on the trigger, then slowly increase the pressure, the trigger weight is just about perfect. If you want a "hair trigger," this isn't it. It is not difficult to pull.

This gun is super-durable! I got it when I was about 14 years old (I'm 30, now), and I have spent many a seasons hiking in the dry creek bed near my parents' home, shooting at whatever inanimate objects struck my fancy. (Note: don't shoot steel BB's at hard objects, or it'll ricochet dangerously. Instead, look for trash, pine cones, rotted wood, etc.--or bring your own targets). I've accidentally dropped this gun a few times, and aside from a few scratches, it's still in good condition. The (plastic) front sight is shrouded in a plastic guard, so it's protected from bumps and scrapes. The rear site is made of metal, and hasn't bent, despite a bit of rough use. Even though most of the gun is made of plastic (and perhaps because of that), it's never given me reason to doubt its durability. The important pieces (barrel, chamber, etc.) are made of a good metal, so they're both durable and reliable for accuracy. After 16 years of use, this gun still shoots great!

Ammo: The gun holds about 50 BB's, which is wonderful for "plinking", as you'll rarely have to reload. You can also load pellets into the gun one-at-a-time, but it's difficult to do so without accidentally loading a BB first. Also, it's a bit hard to seat the pellets facing the right direction, since the BB-loading mechanisms get in the way a bit. While you certainly can shoot pellets with this gun (and they shoot well, I'll note), it's a lot more fun and hassle-free to use the built-in BB magazine. The magazine is incredibly easy to load (just pour the ammo in!). The only ammo-related complaint is the trouble with using pellets. Note: I have big hands, so you might find it easier than I do. Finally, the BB-loading mechanisms are very, VERY reliable! A magnetized piece of metal pulls a single BB (never two!), out of the magazine and pushes it into the chamber. Piece of cake! Once you figure out the right way to pull the lever, you'll love it.

Safety mechanism: It's easy to use, and in just the right spot to disable it before shooting. Since it's just a simple "trigger block" safety, you can't activate it until it's cocked, so that's not quite as safe as it could be. Since you CAN (and should) engage the safety before you pump air into the gun, a conscientious shooter won't have any problems. As with all multi-pump rifles, this could do well with an auto-safety, but so long as you're consistent about gun safety, you should be fine. Just make sure you teach any new shooter the proper gun safety rules (which you can find on Wikipedia, if you need a concise list). Even a young shooter can shoot this rifle safely.

This gun is extremely quiet! If you're shooting in your back yard, your neighbors will only hear it if they're outside with you. The "snap" sound of shooting is quieter than the sound of the BB hitting an empty can or plastic bottle.

The stock is well-shaped, and once you learn the way this rifle "likes" to be held, your level of accuracy, and comfort will be very good. I find that I shoot best with my right elbow sticking out horizontally, the butt barely touching my shoulder, my right thumb resting on top of the grip (only light pressure), the pad of my trigger finger resting lightly on the trigger, and my left hand gripping lightly near the pump handle. Pump with your trigger hand for best results (so your grip-hand/arm won't get tired). Of course, shoot the way YOU like best!

Lastly, I want to comment on the gun's weight. Since it's made of durable-yet-hollow plastic, you should have no problems trekking through the wilderness all day with this gun. I've spent many fun hours shooting this, walking, shooting some more, etc., Never once did I wish it were lighter. Even a "Red Ryder" (for about the same price, I'll note), is considerably heavier than this gun. The only strength requirement worth noting is that a very young shooter will have trouble with ANY multi-pump rifle, so be aware of that. Otherwise, it's probably lighter than you thought a rifle could be (without compromising quality).
ProsBest value for the price! VERY reliable. Easy multi-pump action. Super-cheap to shoot (ammo, etc.). Great power/speed/accuracy at 7-10 pumps. (800fps with BB; less with pellet.) Good trigger weight. Excellent built-in "open" sights. Scope-mountable. Extremely rugged. Very accurate. Comfortable stock. Very lightweight. Quieter than you might think possible without a suppressor.
ConsSafety mechanism could be better (but it's fine for a safe shooter). Pellets are hard to load, but practice will help with that. Like all multi-pump rifles, time between shots is fairly high, so follow-up shots at game/pests are less likely. No major flaws, really; for most shooters, it's probably perfect.

Is there supposed to be a pellet clip with this particular gun? Ive had mine for a few years and haven't used it very much. My dad wanted to borrow it to keep the blackbirds away from his blackberry bushes and later asked me where the pellet clip was. I don't remember ever having one. I usually don't lose things. So is there supposed to be one?
By Staff on March 5, 2012

Some bb pellet rifle combos do use a pellet clip but this one does not, pellets are loaded on the top every shot.
