The 880 has a bittersweet history. It is an accurate powerful multi ammo multi-pump pneumatic rifle with a great look and feel.
It’s also the first Daisy that was held responsible for an accidental death due to neglect. This didn’t force the gun out of production but it did make Daisy apply warning labels on the receiver. The rifle pictured is an early pre warning label gun.
As I’ve mentioned before I am not in the habit of collecting non functioning guns. This one arrived working but failed to work after 10 shots. It turns out that this is indicative of the model and may be due to the sensitive nature of pneumatic guns.
Eventually this 880 will get a seal job and work good as new. This is an accurate, quiet and powerful rifle.
