Finally got the 853 to a dedicated 10M indoor range today with my son who's home from grad school. We were shooting penny size dots with iron sights OFFHAND.
Two errent shots were taken with the 46m pistol

I just contacted Daisy this week inquiring about a set of front apertures. My gun only came with one which is too big for most targets. Their reply is they'll send me a set free. We'll see how it shoots with the correct front sight.

Very nice shooting. I laughed at the "46M errant shots" comment. featherweight triggers take a little getting used to!

I was excited that some guns from the CMP had the mods done, mine has not. Just checked and pull was 4# with a lot of pre travel.

Son and I were having a contest. Each had a dot, taking turns with the rifle first to hit the dot won. Caveat was while one person was shooting the rifle the other could shoot the 46M as much as they wanted at their dot. Sons first rifle shot just missed breaking the edge. My first shot hit the dot but he got off the 2 errent shots with the 46M at his target. He had loaded a 3rd and I almost said if you hit it you win, but I knew better. Next shot he drills it with the 46M then proceded to hit it 5x with the rifle.

The reconditioned 853s from the cmp are a great deal.
For fun practice and low cost it can not be beat.
The trigger job is easy although you can just call daisy and order the adjustable trigger group. Also order several reseal kits.

I did the TG modification procedure on my 853 which wasn't that big of a deal - the only thing I found disagreeable about doing it was drilling & tapping the rear of the plastic trigger guard;

So purchasing the OEM-updated TG is a bargain - afterwards I purchased a couple just to have around as extras.

Just printed off the CMP instructions tonight and headed to the workshop. Took 1-1/2 hours to tear down the gun complete the mods, assemble and shoot a test target. Only thing I found was the safety won't engage. I'll have to disassemble and remove a little more material for clearance. Trigger went from 4# and LOTS of pre travel to 2#11oz and NO pre travel. Never touched any of the springs.

Pulled gun apart to look at the safety. No apparent problems. so cut 2-1/2 coils off the plunger spring to lighted the load on the sear and put back together. Safety works as it should except if you remove too much pre travel there is enough flex you can pull the trigger hard and get it to discharge. Checked trigger pull and its at 2#8oz. light enough for the gun it is. Did shoot 10 shots at a TQ 1/5 target scoring 85.
