Daisy's Powerline 5170 Co2 Pistol will shoot its 21 rounds as fast
as you can pull the trigger. Featuring a fixed slide you push BBs out at a staggering
430FPS making this a great backyard gun for shooting cans, paper targets, Daisy Shatter blasts or breakable objects.
Load up your 21 shot magazine, plug in your 12 gram Co2 powerlet and enjoy.
After about 30 shots, it stopped working. According to instructions in the box, I sent it back to the manufacturer weeks ago and have not heard back from them.

Powerful and accurate!
I bought it to shoot the frequent reptiles that frequent my back yard. I like the increased mussel velocity. That said it does go through CO2 cartridges kinda quickly. I like that the magazine has a high capacity although some what awkward to load. The trigger has a pull that's long. I found firing with my middle finger is best. If you plan on firing a lot it's advisable to purchase extra magazines which are reasonably priced.
ProsAccurate, high mussel velocity, high magazine capacity.
ConsLong trigger pull, magazines awkward to load.

It's ALL TRUE.... Power and accuracy!!
If you take all the extra railing off this gun it looks like a railed 1911 with a muzzle break. It has a very realistic look. That could be good or bad depending this situation. Seems to have great power. Accuracy is right on the money. Everything about this bb gun is easy. The feel is good. It feels like all the internal workings are made of metal covered in a durable plastic housing. Great to know Daisy is still making great stuff!!
ProsAccurate and powerful. Affordable. It still has a rail after taking the railing off. No issues.
ConsLooks better taking the extra railing off. But it's nice to have the railing for a red dot sight for a possible future upgrade. There really isn't any cons about this bb gun.

Outstanding Air Pistol
I've worn out a few air pistols but this is by far the best one yet. It's powerful and deadly accurate on squirrels that insist on dropping pieces of pear on my lawn because they only want the core in the middle. Since negotiations to let them have all the cores they want after the pears are ripe have failed, it's all out war. Previous guns have only served to mostly spank them and accuracy for even that has been spotty. Raids were relentless because they didn't feel all that threatened. This gun is a game changer!
It's a very well made gun, great weight and feel. Loading CO2 is very easy, something none of my other guns have accomplished. There's no leaking trying to tighten the clamp fast enough...great design!! The mag is reliable, I haven't noticed any misfiring and unlike other mag designs, no accidental "snapping" of the spring mechanism causing BB's to fly all over the place while loading. Unlike my last gun where I had to get better screws to secure the rails to the gun, this gun is solidly built and the rails stay tight for reliable scope accuracy.
This is a great gun at a great price.
ProsMostly outlined in review. I really like the easy loading of both CO2 and BB's.
Haven't noticed any failed shots, nag function is reliable.
Nice weight and feel.
Rails are secure and gun is well built.
Powerful and deadly accurate.
ConsTrigger pull is a bit long, takes some getting used to.
Major design flaw considering how well the gun is made: the wing nut to tighten and loosen the CO2 clamp is cheap plastic. It literally failed trying to remove the very first spent CO2 cartridge. I improvised by filing two sides of the threaded rod to flatten them so I could use channel locks to change CO2 cartridges. This still works very well because of the ease of changing cartridges and the leak free design but a simple design change would eliminate this problem. I still gave the gun 5 stars but it's something to be aware of when you purchase this gun. Compared to the trickiness of loading CO2 in my previous gun without wasting up to half the CO2, I consider the 5ish minutes it took to file off a few mm to flatten the end on two sides inconsequential. Still, replacing that cheap plastic wing nut would make this gun pretty much perfect.

Powerful & Very Accurate!!
This is a very inexpensive gun but it performs well. The exterior of the gun is all plastic but it comes with plenty of Picatinny rails for accessories.
ProsThis chrono'd at 538 FPS, has a really light and smooth trigger pull. This is very accurate, for a C02 BB pistol, using the red-dot sight. For the price everybody needs one and a couple of extra magazines.
ConsNo Cons at this price point!

It's a Daisy
This is a fun BB pistol on several levels. Contrary to some reviews, this gun is accurate. Since it's light I suspect a stable hold is a little more difficult than usual and it may be pulling of the POA of some shooters. Since it's DA only, that might be another factor. But I like this gun so much I have two of them. I put a laser on one and a red dot on the other. Both are good shooters and as I mentioned, accurate. It's about a 3-4 on the quiet scale. CO2 lasts a long time and is easy to load in the handle. The rails are removable if they get in your way. I put the push-button laser on the rail that held the bridge, so you can still mount a laser if you wish. This pistol is an all day fun shooter. Bring lots of BBs and CO2.
ProsGreat price, fun shooter, light to hold, I like it! It's a Daisy!
ConsPlastic everywhere, but nice and light is the result.

daisy powerline5170 .177 co2bbcaliber
powerful gun I staked full pop cans one behind the other seven total rip right thur them like if they were made of paper if you buy the sight that is recamended you can shoot a pop size target about 90 yards away and I mean I hit the can 17 times with one magazine.
Prosverey powerful for the price feels good when shooting more accurate then you would think with a smooth barel
Consplease make a version with a rifel barrel if so look out it will be heaven.

Got this gun a week ago. The rounds go far and fast, and somewhat accurate. THIS IS NOT AN ACCURACY GUN!
Do not buy this if you are looking for accuracy. Another downer: too many mounting rails. Sometimes it gets in the way of firing. A very good thing: more rounds per clip. You can fit at least 20 rounds into the clip.

This is a great gun, not that great accuracy wise but about average compared to other guns. I can probably hit a man size target at 80 yards with alot of compenstation and a squirrel size target at 20 yards. Its really just a fun gun and it's great for all day plinking and theres alot of rails which can be both a good thing and a bad thing depending on what you like but i usually just slide the rails off. But the one thing I want to emphasis the most is the durability, There are no screws or pins left in my current gun(I lost them when I was taking it apart), the internals are almost completely rusted (I dropped it in the water twice) (I had to make slits in the barrel and clamp washers on the mechanism since it slid when I pulled the trigger since it rusted when it fell in the water) and it still works perfectly like the day got it, even without screws it has a tight enough fit to stay together and work flawlessly (Plus I can take it apart alot faster when I'm in the woods now) but overall if you just want a fun gun to protect you from those viscious squirrels this is great for the money, personally it's beat out some of my 100 dollar guns so go for it.
