Comments: This is a small, lightweight, all plastic BB gun with an internal 15-shot magazine made in Taiwan by Wingun for Cybergun and imported by Palco Sports. It is a nearly perfect clone of the Daisy 15XT, which is made in Japan. It even has the words "Model 15XT" molded into the left side of the slide. Interestingly, the Taiwan clone costs more than the Daisy it copies even though the finish and action are not quite as smooth. Crosman Copperhead BBs do not work well in this gun (jamming). Daisy Avanti BBs give acceptable performance, although not on par with the Daisy 15XT. Accessory rails on the top and bottom can be used to mount lasers and red-dot sights.

Performance: Measurements were made on 2/17/07 at a temperature of 59 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Daisy Avanti BBs (5.5 gr). The highest velocity measured was 392 fps, the lowest was 365 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 381 fps). A six shot string fired with open sights grouped at 1.26".
