953 Daisy

I got my gun today . I reamed the ft sight out with a # 2 bit . It needs to be a lot bigger but it was getting thin . It took me almost a hour to ream the ft insert out . The rear was a piece of cake #53 and toss that rubber eye piece out . Now I have NO AIM sights . All I do is wait for the color of the black to be bright and pop the trigger . There is 2 target / 10 rd I just shoot .

The trigger sucks and that butt slide off my should . I will fix both of them problems

Wow, delivered, fixed and shot all within a few hours. I don't think I could do all that in that amount of time. You got some good targets too.

I got it at 4:30 and it only came with 1 ft inserts and none of mine fit it . This one I reamed is too small but will work on the 8 bullseye 10 meter target for outside shooting , so I need to get one I can ream out larger for the GAMO indoor targets and trap .

Wow that was quick. So I need to drill out my rear site with a # 53 bit? I manage to break my front globe I set the gun against a box and it fell over onto the carpet and the globe sight popped off. Broke the clamp for the dovetail. Guess I'll order a new one. And apparently I will need a larger inset now. Thanks for the details TGR.

I wonder if the Lyman inserts will fit them? I have about a half dozen globes and they all come with a complete series and I can't use them all.

Great targets, right out tot the box. Good work, TGR.

On mine, there was a spring under the sear that I could see served no purpose, so I removed it. Lightened up the first part of that super long pull. There are mods you can find on the internet to do a complete job, though.

Thanks TGR I used some Gorilla Glue on it. I will see if it holds today if it pops back off I'll hit it with JB Weld.

I put a strip of skateboard tape this morning on that plastic recoil pad . BOY it helps a lot , now the rifle don't slide around . I'm trying to find some inserts for the globe sight and can't find any . I would like clear plastic one with ring painted on .

I haven't seen one. The gun is fairly straightforward as far as how everything fits together, though.

This guy has over 9 videos on the disassemble and rebuild of 853c which is the same as a 953 . I watched most of the them and for a kid he knows the 853c .

My peeps are near perfect for me . Without my glasses I can watch the pellet in flight and where it strikes the target . No spotting scope needed . I need to make the ft globe hole a tad larger for the Gamo target . I love the 5 shot mags .

Awesome shooting, TGR. I might have to get one of those peep and globe setups for mine.

Pretty amazing that a $100 gun can shoot so well. Still get a big kick out of that.

Mine is not too pellet fussy, either. Does very well with the R10s, too.

Looks like you are having a good time TGR. I'm letting my JB Weld fix sit over night before I try putting the front globe back on. I took a few shots using the peep with the stock front sight and was pretty pleased wit it. I drilled the rear peep out with a #57 bit. I didn't want to just use the #53 first in case for me it might be too big. You can't un-drill a hole if it is too big.

Remove your rear aperture out of sight and look at your targets . Now you know why the hole size is important .

Here is the one I made for my SASS race gun . Note the aperture hole size for 100 yds target work .



I remove aperture for 25 to 50 yds steel targets or hunting deer at under 100 yds .

Well it seems that the JB Weld is holding. I left it clamped overnight and put it back on this morning. Took abut 10 shots with it and it didn't move. So far so good. Next to drill out the rear peep again to #53 then drill out the front sight.

Also I found a Williams front globe on Midway that will fit on the 3/8" dovetail and comes with 10 inserts for $43. And it is aluminum not plastic. The only concern is if it would be too low.

That sight is designed for a Unteria scope type base not a 3/8 groove . I have one here and it is too low to boot .

Read that infor again

For use with the William's Target Globe front sight, these steel attaching bases either fit a rifle's 3/8" dovetail or use screws to mount to the barrel, forming a solid foundation upon which to mount the front sight. Blue finish.

A 3/8 dovetail is different from a 3/8 grooved receivers .
