Daisy PowerLine 5170 User Manual
STEP 2. INSERT CO2 CYLINDER
WARNING: Use only CO2
cylinders which are the 12 gram type.
Any attempt to use other sizes and/
or cylinders containing other types of
gas could be extremely dangerous.
The use of gases other than CO2 could
result in an explosion or could rupture
the gun, causing serious injury.
1. Put “ON” safety - NO RED SHOWING.
2. Remove the clip by pushing the clip
release button (Fig. 3).
3. Remove left grip cover by lifting
the grip cover tab (Fig. 4).
4. Turn puncture screw counterclock-
wise until there is enough room to
insert a CO2 cylinder.
5. Insert the large end of the CO2
cylinder into the lower portion of
the grip. Hold the gun in an inverted
position with the grip pointing up and
the muzzle pointing away from you as
shown (Fig. 5). Position the small end
of the CO2 cylinder inside the retainer
so that the CO2 cylinder touches the
puncture pin (Fig. 5).
6. While continuing to hold gun in
an inverted position, replace the
left grip cover, point the muzzle in a
safe direction and turn the puncture
screw clockwise to puncture the CO2
cylinder. (Fig. 6) Continue turning the
screw RAPIDLY until finger tight.
NOTE: A slight seepage of CO2 gas
may occur until puncture screw is tight.
WARNING: Be sure the muzzle
is pointed in a safe direction when
puncturing CO2 cylinder. In the event
that a seal temporarily leaks while the
CO2 is being punctured, the CO2
gas may escape through the barrel.
If ammunition is jammed in the barrel
from prior shooting, this could result
in a projectile being shot.
STEP 3. FILL THE BUILT-IN MAGAZINE WITH A MAXIMUM OF 21 BBs
1. Always point gun in a safe direction.
Insure that the gun is “ON” safe – NO
RED SHOWING (see Operation Step 1).
2. Move the Clip BB follower fully
downward to engage the notch as
shown. (Fig. 7-1)
NOTE: Make sure the follower is held
fully by the notch before loading BBs.
You can insure the follower doesn’t
accidentally come out of the notch by
holding it while loading BBs.
3. Once the BB follower is held securely
in the notch, a maximum of 21 .177 caliber BBs can be individually inserted into
the Clip Loading Port as shown. (Fig. 7-2)
CAUTION: Use only Precision Max™ BBs by Daisy®, or similar quality BBs
that are labeled as such. Do not use lead pellets, buck shot, darts, ball bearings,
or other foreign objects because they can cause injury to someone or may dam-
age and/or jam the pistol.
4. After the Clip has been loaded with a maximum of 21 BBs, slowly release the
BB follower and allow it to rest up against the BBs allowing the BBs to be under
spring tension (Fig. 7-3).
5. Insert the loaded Clip securely into the pistol.
WARNING: Once the Clip is loaded with BBs it is considered to be loaded, so
use extreme caution in handling the gun. Keep the gun pointed in a safe direc-
tion. Never point the gun at anyone.
STEP 4. AIM AT A SAFE TARGET
To be a consistent marksman, use the correct sight picture each time you fire
the pistol (Fig. 8).
CAUTION: Due to the power of
this CO2 pistol, use extra caution in
selecting a safe target and proper
backstop based on the ammunition
you’re shooting. Never shoot BBs into
a steel trap designed for pellets. Pick
targets and backstops that will not
cause a ricochet or allow the ammo to
penetrate the backstop. Never shoot
at a flat hard surface or at the surface
STEP 5. TAKE “OFF” SAFETY – POSITION SAFETY SO RED IS SHOWING
When you are certain that the target,
back stop and surrounding area are safe,
rotate the safety “OFF” - toward the “F”
- Fire position - RED SHOWING (Fig 9).
WARNING: Use extreme caution
in operating the gun because it is now
ready to fire when the trigger is pulled.
STEP 6. FIRE
The pistol can be safely fired after properly completing the operating steps
mentioned above. After making sure the gun is pointed in a safe direction,
gently but firmly, squeeze the trigger. If you desire to continue shooting, the
operation steps can be repeated until the CO2 cylinder requires replacement.
Once the last BB has been shot from the gun, it is still possible for the trigger to
be pulled, but only CO2 will be discharged.
STEP 7. PUT “ON” SAFETY - NO RED SHOWING.
After firing, return the safety to the “ON” position – NO RED SHOWING (Fig 2).
BB DOES NOT FIRE
WARNING: If a BB does not fire after completing the operation steps, do
not assume that the gun is unloaded. Keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
CHECK THE FOLLOWING IF A BB DOES NOT FIRE
1. Did the Removable Clip contain .177 cal. Daisy® Precision Max™ or similar
quality BBs? If not, fill the Removable Clip with BBs and repeat the operation
2. Was the safety “OFF” – RED SHOWING, when the trigger was pulled? If not,
repeat the operation steps.
3. Was a CO2 cylinder installed? If not, put “ON” safe – NO RED SHOWING, and
insert a new CO2 cylinder. Repeat the operation steps after the new cylinder is
4. Refer to the section on CO2 characteristics.
5. If the pistol still does not fire, refer to warning below.
WARNING: If the pistol still fails to shoot a projectile after checking the five
items noted, there is a malfunction in the pistol. This could represent a dangerous
condition. There could be a BB in the pistol even though a BB did not shoot out.
This could cause the user to mistakenly believe the pistol is unloaded. At no time
should you look down the barrel of the gun. Put “ON” safe – NO RED SHOWING,
remove the CO2 cylinder, and send the pistol directly to DAISY MANUFACTURING
SERVICE DEPARTMENT. Refer to section on REPAIRS OF DAISY GUNS.
HOW TO UNLOAD
After a shooting session is complete, unload the gun before storing. To unload
the gun always put “ON” safe – NO RED SHOWING, remove the CO2 cylinder, and
remove the BBs from the Clip.
CAUTION: Even though you have gone through an unloading procedure,
continue to treat the gun as though it were loaded. Don’t point at anything you
don’t intend to shoot. Always put “ON” safe – NO RED SHOWING.
REMOVE CO2 CYLINDER
1. Put “ON” safe – NO RED SHOWING.
(Operation Step 1)
2. With the muzzle pointed in a safe
direction and the lefthand grip cover
still in place, slowly turn puncture screw
counterclockwise (Fig. 10) allowing any
remaining gas to be discharged and
continue turning screw until end stop
3. Remove left-hand grip cover by
lifting at the bottom of the grip.
4. Remove and properly dispose of CO2 cylinder.
CAUTION: Never attempt to reuse a CO2 cylinder for any purpose.
REMOVE BBs FROM THE REMOVABLE CLIP
1. Put “ON” safe – NO RED SHOWING. (Operation Step 1)
2. Push and hold the BB follower fully Downward.
3. Invert the Clip to allow the BBs to fall out of the Clip through the loading port.
4. Look inside the Clip slot on the side of the clip to insure all BBs have been
CAUTION: Do not assume that the gun is empty of ammunition. Even
though you have gone through an unloading procedure, continue to treat the
gun as though it were loaded. Don’t point at anything you don’t intend to shoot.
Always put the safety “ON” safe – NO RED SHOWING. (Operation Step 1) and
always treat the gun as if it were loaded and ready to fire.
There are occasions when a CO2 pistol may be subjected to abnormal condi-
tions that can produce effects on the pistol’s performance. These conditions
include operation and/or storage of the pistol at temperatures that are consid-
erably higher or lower than normal outdoor temperatures (60 – 70 degrees F),
as well as conditions of rapid fire.
1. High temperatures can produce pressure in the CO2 cylinder and gun that is
considerably higher than normal operating pressure. Such increased pressure
may prevent the pistol from firing and may result in permanent damage to the
gun. The maximum operating or storage temperatures should not exceed 105
degrees F (40 degrees C ). This temperature can easily be reached if the gun
is left directly in the sun on a bright, sunny day. Therefore the shooter should
not expose the pistol to high temperature conditions or direct sunlight for any
extended period of time.
2. Rapid firing of the gun will cause temperature reduction in the pistol and
CO2 gas. This will result in lower ammunition velocities and may even lower gas
pressure enough so that the pistol will not fire. This condition can be especially
apparent when shooting in cold weather. This condition can be avoided by allow-
ing more time between shots. This permits the gas to increase in temperature
and pressure, and produce normal velocities.
3. During rapid fire, the muzzle velocity of each shot can be expected to de-
crease. This can be detrimental to shooting accuracy. The faster the gun is shot,
the fewer shots you will get per CO2 cylinder.
4. Care should be exercised to ensure that the gun is not shot with a CO2 cylinder
that is low in pressure because a BB may not be expelled from the barrel.
CAUTION: Shooting the gun with low CO2 pressure could result in ammuni-
tion lodging in the barrel.
Store your pistol unloaded. Put “ON” safe , remove CO2 cylinder and remove
all BBs from the pistol. Keep pistol away from children and untrained shoot-
ers. Store ammunition, and CO2 cylinders separately from the pistol to keep
them from untrained shooters.
WARNING: A CO2 CYLINDER CONTAINS GAS UNDER PRESSURE, WHETHER
OR NOT IT HAS BEEN INSERTED INTO A GUN. IF EXPOSED TO HIGH TEMPERA-
TURES (SUCH AS INSIDE OF A CLOSED CAR IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT), IT COULD
EXPLODE. BE SURE TO STORE ALL CYLINDERS IN A COOL PLACE.
With care and periodic cleaning, your pistol will provide many years of
shooting enjoyment. As is the case with conventional firearms, abuse, neglect,
and continued exposure to the elements will impair the performance of any
airgun. Learn to take care of your pistol and it will serve you well.
CAUTION: Never attempt to clean the pistol until it is “ON” safe – NO RED
SHOWING, the CO2 cylinder has been removed, and the BBs have been removed
from the Built-in Magazine.
Any plastic parts may be cleaned with a damp rag and mild soap or deter-
gent. Avoid using strong detergent, abrasive cleaning compounds or solvents
that may scratch or otherwise damage surfaces. The exposed metal parts
should occasionally be wiped clean using a soft cloth that is lightly oiled with
clean motor oil.
This safety alert symbol indicates important safety messages in this
manual. When you see this symbol, be alert to the possibility of personal injury
and carefully read the message that follows.
The Model 5170 CO
PowerLine® Pistol shoots with much more muzzle energy
than the traditional spring air BB gun. More power means greater chance of
serious injury. Use extreme caution when operating this gun.
Although your new PowerLine® Pistol is not a firearm, it has lethal potential
and should be treated with caution and respect due any conventional firearm.
Always remember, the first and most important safety feature of any gun is the
shooter. All safeties are mechanical devices and the shooter is the only part of
the system that can make a gun safe–or unsafe. DON’T DEPEND ON MECHANICAL
SAFETIES–think ahead and avoid situations that might lead to accidents.
Guns differ in their operations and you are never ready to fire any gun until
you are thoroughly familiar with it. Read the following operating instructions
and WITHOUT LOADING A PROJECTILE, proceed through the operating steps (dry
firing your gun with CO
only several times at a safe target.) This will enable you
to learn to operate the PowerLine® 5170 properly and safely.
PRIOR TO OPERATION
Put “ON” SAFE – NO RED SHOWING (refer to Operation Step 1).
WARNING: Be sure gun is always pointed in a safe direction.
Step 1. PUT “ON” SAFETY - NO RED SHOWING
Step 2. INSERT CO2 CYLINDER
Step 3. FILL THE CLIP WITH A MAXIMUM OF 21 BBs & INSERT INTO PISTOL
Step 4. AIM AT A SAFE TARGET
Step 5. TAKE “OFF” SAFETY - RED SHOWING
Step 6. FIRE
Step 7. PUT “ON” SAFETY - NO RED SHOWING
The pistol can continue to be shot until the removable clip is empty or the CO2
cylinder need to be replaced. The Model 5170 will obtain approximately 90 shots
per CO2 cylinder. Refer to section on CO2 Characteristics.
NEVER STORE A LOADED GUN
At the end of a shooting session, as a safety precaution, always put the safety in
the “S” safe position - NO RED SHOWING, remove CO2 cylinder, remove BBs from
the gun. Store in a safe place to prevent unauthorized use.
HOW TO OPERATE
WARNING: Be sure gun is always pointed in a safe direction. Never point
the gun at anyone. Always assume and treat the gun as if it were loaded and
ready to fire.
STEP 1. PUT “ON” SAFETY - POSITION SAFETY SO NO RED IS SHOWING
Rotate the safety toward the S - “SAFE” position – NO RED SHOWING (Fig. 2).
In this position, the trigger will not fire the gun.
CAUTION: Even when the safety is
“ON” you should continue to handle the
pistol safely. Don’t point the gun at any-
thing that you don’t intend to shoot.
NOTE: The safety is manual and not auto-
matic. It will only do its job when you do
yours. With the index finger out of the
trigger area, rotate the safety to the S -
“SAFE” position-NO RED SHOWING (Fig. 2).
REMEMBER, THE BEST SAFETY IS GOOD GUN HANDLING.
Your CO2 pistol was lubricated when built and should not require any ad-
CAUTION: The components of this gun were engineered to deliver
optimum performance. Any modification or tampering with a gun may cause a
malfunction and may make it unsafe to use. Any change in performance (such
as a lowered trigger pull force and shortened trigger travel), indicates pos-
sible modification, tampering and/or wear. Such a gun should be inspected,
replaced or properly repaired by qualified personnel. Any gun that has been
dropped should be checked by qualified personnel to ensure that its function
has not been affected.
