This weekend, lacking enough to do, I stopped in at WallyWorld and purchased a Daisy Powerline 880 just for something new to play around with.  At just under $40, it is essentially a toy even though the box says it isn't.  

The Good:
This is a very accurate little rifle.  It shoots virtually all pellets I have tried as accurately as I can hold at 10 meters.
It looks like a toy, not intimidating at all.
It is light.
It has just enough pull in the stock for an adult.
It is relatively quiet.
Pumping is fairly easy.
It isn't expensive.
The open sights shot well for me.

The Bad:
It looks and feels like a toy. It is mostly plastic.
The pellet loading port is pretty small making loading more difficult than some other rifles.
The scope that came with it is not worth mounting.
Trigger is heavier than I would have liked

Overall:
Well worth the $40.  Longer pellets like Beeman Crow Magnums are much easier to load than shorter pellets.  The short pellets tend to flip around and get lost in the BB magazine.  Mine liked Crow Magnums, Meisterkuglens, CP Ultra Mags best but all pellets I tried shot well.  Gamo PBAs were particularly difficult to load.  Mine shot nicely with only 5 pumps.  I used a compact Leapers scope I found in my closet and tossed the 4X15 plastic scope that came with the rifle - big improvement!

You are right Ron, those 880 pumper's are a blast to shoot. I re-built an older one for my cousin and have a great time shooting it whenever I get down to his house. $40...you can't beat that deal. Toss the scope though...LOL

I have shot alot of squirrels with an 880. I wish I had one to play around with now to change the pace from springers a little.

The 880 Is Great!!!!! I have owned three and wouldn't trade it for anything. Ya It does look like a toy But so does the "m-16". It just takes time with it and learning how is shoots. I have dropped piggens at 175 yards before With the scope. true story

In my basement range it probably gets shot more than any of my springers. A few pumps and pito-o-o-ey right thru where you point it
If others tried it they'd like it.
