This little gun gets good reviews for accuracy, quietness shot count etc. I like the looks of a vintage type rifle as well. Any of you guys using one of these, would sue make a nice bulk fill candidate as well.
 
Thanks

It is in fact a great Daisy gun. Went out shopping and found one at Wally for $39. it's semi auto with a 15 shot mag, no pumping, cocking, breaking barrels. Just drop in a 12 grm cart and you get a lot of shots, I would say a 100 consistent power. More accurate than any Co2 pistol I have had, and rips up cans out to 60 ft. no problem. I like the old school look (non tactical), and would easily be customized with paint. I have a lot of C02 guns, some leak when installing a cart, this one is dead silent holds air great. Good overall quality feel for a low price gun. I'm surprised you don't hear more on these, if you are looking for a good little semi for the basement or yard this is it, it's also nice an quiet. I like it.

I agree,and would add that the 74 is ideal for use with the "Rocket Shot" can launcher. A Black Sheep slip on recoil pad makes it adult sized easily and cheaply.

I have seen this gun before and liked it's looks. $39 is cheap as dirt for a Co2 gun that shoots well. How is the trigger pull? Most cheaper Co2 guns have to have the hammer "cocked" via the trigger pull. I suppose that's on purpose for safety issues. 
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

The trigger is somewhat clunky, you get used of it fast. It's basically a fun factor gun you have a hard time putting down. It is really reliable, I have put a lot of shots on it without fail. It's good for up to 200 shots on a cart. I've read some modding about putting a little weight on the hammer to bring up the FPS but it's pretty good as is. I'm thinking on a faux wood paint scheme on mine, if you like plinking with the red ryder you will love this one. Daisy did this one right, it's and affordable co2 rifle, semi auto, lots of shots and reliableSmile

Yeah FPS can be over rated. I do have a chroney.....but use it to know that my guns are shooting as they should and to be sure any repairs I did, actually worked. I may try that little plinker. I wish they made one in .22. I prefer that caliber pellet gun.

I use the Crossman 1077 on a bulk paintball co2 tank, they have 12 round clips in .177 cal, do about 700FPS and only cost $69. You spend more time loading clips than shooting, I have 5 clips and that's slinging a lot of lead quick, they are also very nice. The little daisy kinda outshines this one in the loading category, it has 200 round storage in the receiver, you just tilt it back and forth few times and the 16 round mag is re-loaded, only a few seconds downtime for 200 rounds shooting. I ripped this can up at 30 ft. on about 6 mags.I don't think there are a lot of semi auto .22 pellet rifles out there unless you go with the really expensive electric PCP's

That bottom of the can is barely hanging in there. A Cr 600 can easily be modded into a carbine....I say easily. It can be and has been done. I'm good with my little 180. Not Semi auto but cooling slows down semi autos pretty quick. I love my Daisy 822 and 922 when I'm up for a bit of pumping.

This little gun is spitting out such a small amount of Co2 it actually doesn't  slow it down that much, I do a couple of mags (32 shots) and let it set for 5 mins and it's ready to go full power.LOL

The way the Daisy 74 loads BBs would make the gun a lot more fun than loading pellets individually, which is the biggest downer about the CO2 powered QB78 I just got. They make a repeater conversion but it costs more than I paid for the whole gun!
 
Gonna get a 74, though. Sounds like too much fun to miss out on... Thumbs Up
 
BTW, is there a way to get notified when new replies are made to a thread?
