Is the Daisy Powerline 880 Accurate?

Lots of people always question whether the cheap pellet guns are accurate… like the Daisy Powelrine 880, which sells for about $50.

I own a Daisy Powerline 880 and I really like it. I bought mine 6 or 7 years ago at Walmart for $35. I use the open sights on the Daisy Powerline because it’s too hard for me to load pellets with a scope mounted. There’s just not enough room to drop a pellet in easily.

Let’s take a look at some of my targets shooting 2 different pellets. I shot some JSB Match Diabolo Exact pellets and Copperhead Hyper Velocity Hunting pellets.

Here is my target after shooting 5 JSB Match Diabolo pellets using the open sights on the Powerline 880. I used 5 pumps for all accuracy testing.

Close up view of the target. 5 shots in about 0.75″ group. Nice for a $50 pellet gun huh? Let’s try some cheaper pellets.

Another 5 shot group using open sights and Copperhead Hyper Velocity Hunting pellets.

Close up of the 5 shot group. It measures about 0.50″. Not bad for cheap pellets from a cheap gun?
