Comments: The Daisy CO2 200 is an improved version of the Daisy Model 100 (Daisy bought the tooling for the Model 100 from Floyd Hyde Engineering), which was the first semi-auto replica repeater made by Daisy. Daisy modified the styling of the 200 to more closely resemble the Browning Nomad (the Model 100 was a replica of the Wamo Powermaster .22 cal pistol). The trigger on this gun feels like a true single action semi-auto although it operates the elevator in addition to releasing the sear. The gun holds 200 BBs in a hopper from which 5 BBs at a time are fed into a spring-loaded internal magazine. The Model 200 is pretty fragile and not many of them still work (leakers). This specimen holds air and is a fun and fast gun to shoot - moderately accurate too.

Performance: Measurements were made on 8/30/06 at a temperature of 89 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Crosman Copperhead BBs (5.1 gr). The highest velocity measured was 472 fps, the lowest was 416 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 437 fps). A five shot string fired with open sights grouped at 0.89".

Loading BBs: BBs are loaded through the port on the back. After loading BBs, point the gun down and shake it. Then, point the gun straight up and push the magazine follower forward. This will load the internal magazine. The gun will sometimes double or triple fire when the trigger is pulled. The first shot fires the BB, subsequent "false" fires just expel CO2.
