I ordered 2 for my kids....order went processed on the 6th and I got them yesterday! That was FAST! Looking forward to having some fun in the back yard with the kids.

Does anyone have a link to Daisy's parts online? I can't seem to find it.....although I saw some other goodies I'd like to order.... :D

I ordered the parts straight from Daisy (800) 643-3458. You want the Model 888 Trigger Housing (Part no. 888-13) since it has the screw hole already installed and you probably should order a spare Model 853 trigger assembly (Part no. 853-20). I also order the Model 888 screw assortment (not sure of part no), but the operator was very friendly and helpful. That way I knew I would have the trigger pull adjustment screw.

Congrats on the purchases. I have been shooting the 853 with my son and I have made dramatic improvement in my offhand shooting and I FINALLY found a comfortable NPOA for my sitting position.

Thanks for the info, I appreciate it!!

They are amazing little rifles! A lot of fun and the kids really enjoy shooting them. Even my daughter who is used to shooting .22 enjoys them.

I am sending the serial numbers off to Daisy for dating since one of them is a 3 digit serial number, in the upper 600s.


I cleaned the barrels this morning using a bore snake and all three bores are still crisp and shiny.


Did you order "straight sotcks" or "Monty Carlo stocks"?

Does Daisy offer this service? I would love to find out the manufacture date of these rifles. Should I send an email to customer service?

I ordered the straight stocks, since they matched the rifles currently in use by the NJROTC at the local HS. Monte Carlo stocks are nice, IMO for standing/off hand shooting, but may fall short for prone shooting depending on the shooters physical geometry.

You can ask the Daisy Museum folks to "date" your rifle by filling out a form and mailing it to them: http://www.daisymuseum.com/html/antiquegunform.htm
I sent my form in about two months ago and haven't heard back :( but you might have better luck.

Just ordered my parts as well. The 888 trigger housing they said was actually part number 888-3.. either that or they are sending me the wrong part.
Once they come in guess I will have to give it the pilk treatment.

The Monte carlo stock is AWESOME! Fits great for the stockweld.

Just received my parts from Daisy today and worked and completed the trigger changes. When cutting the two plastic knobs do a little at a time, then assemble and test. If you take to much off the trigger the safety will no longer engage.
very easy pull on the trigger now.


I did notice with the modification if you let the screw out, IE pre modification, the safety no longers functions. Keep that in mind.
