Daisy 881 Disassembly Part 1

It’s no secret that Derrick and I are not Daisy fanboys and although I have several of the 800 series rifles I haven’t felt the urge to do a post about them. But my neighbor uses one for garden pest control and it stopped holding air so I had to take it apart and see if I could fix it. Seal kits are ridiculously expensive and Daisy offers no parts for the older recalled models AFAIK. So we’ll see if I can get it running with what I have on hand. IMG_7808It looks good, but as you get into it you see some big differences between it and the luxury of a Sheridan…or some of Crosman’s better offerings.IMG_7813IMG_7815IMG_7817

So no point in taking off the butt plate.

It does have a metal receiver…


Screws removed and it sort of wiggles free.


The butt stock is broken, will scavenge one from a donor…


Safety and spring.


The fore stock is held by one screw and a sliding catch.


Push a pin out and the pump assembly comes free, which is nice.


Piston assembly.


Man that is nasty…I’m amazed it would pump at all.


More to come…
