This 177 caliber airgun
was introduced in 2004 as a replacement for the 22 caliber Daisy
Powerline 622X. This all plastic economy airgun handles well and
has an excellent single/double-action trigger. The rotary
magazine is designed to handle both lead pellets and steel BBs.
The major drawback is the lack of an adjustable rear sight.
