Daisy Powerline 340 User Manual
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 SAFE” - NO RED DOT SHOWING
Push the safety down (Figure 3) until no red dot is showing. In this
position the pistol cannot be fired by pulling the trigger.
NOTE: The safety is not automatic. It will only do its job when you do
yours. REMEMBER, THE BEST SAFETY IS GOOD GUN HANDLING.
STEP 2. LOAD
Ammunition is loaded from the
magazine into the firing position as the
slide is returned to the forward position
during cocking. NOTE: To help prevent
misfeeding ammo do not hold the slide
open while cocking.
FILL AMMUNITION MAGAZINE: (Fig. 2)
The removable SPEEDLOADER
magazine is located in the grip of your
pistol. It is removed by pressing the
magazine release button located just
behind the trigger guard (See Figure 1).
1. Fill the SPEEDLOADER magazine
reservoir with a maximum of 200 BBs.
2. Insert the SPEEDLOADER magazine
into the grip of your pistol.
3. Pull the SPEEDLOADER tab all the way
out until it clicks and remains fully extended. Shake the pistol to
reload the Clip without removing the SPEEDLOADER magazine.
4. Push the SPEEDLOADER tab back in until it locks in place.
CAUTION: Use only Daisy quality .177 cal. BBs with your Model 340
pistol. Do not use lead pellets, soft air BBs, buckshot, ball bearings,
paintballs or any other foreign object because they could damage or
jam the pistol.
STEP 3. COCK
With the muzzle pointed in a safe
direction, grasp the cocking slide as
shown in Figure 4. Pull back firmly
and release in one smooth motion to
cock. NOTE: Grasp the
slide firmly as you cock it
to prevent it from slipping
and snapping shut and
possibly causing injury.
Your pistol is now loaded
and should be handled
STEP 4. AIM AT A SAFE TARGET
To be a consistent marksman, use the
correct sight picture each time you fire
the pistol. (Figure 5)
STEP 5. TAKE “OFF SAFE”
Push the “safety” up until red dot
is showing. (Figure 6)
WARNING: Use extreme caution
in operating because the pistol is now
ready to fire when the trigger is pulled.
STEP 6. FIRE
After completing the operation steps and aiming in a safe direction,
your pistol may be fired by squeezing the trigger.
WARNING: If ammunition does not fire after completing
the operation steps, do not assume that the gun is unloaded.
Keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
1. Put “ON SAFE”.
2. Remove magazine so additional ammunition won’t try to load.
3. Cock gun with muzzle pointed down.
4. Close slide.
5. Take “OFF SAFE”.
6. Fire gun in a safe direction.
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.
Although your new PowerLine® pistol is not a firearm, it is a gun and
should be treated with the caution and respect due to 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 operation, and you are never ready to fire any gun
until you are thoroughly familiar with it. Read the following operating
instructions and, WITHOUT LOADING ANY AMMUNITION, proceed
through the operating steps, dry firing your gun several times at a safe
target. This will enable you to learn to operate the Model 340 properly

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 Magazine or Clip contain Daisy® or similar quality BBs? If not,
refill the Magazine with BBs and repeat the operation steps.
2. Was the safety in the “F” FIRE position - RED DOT SHOWING when the
trigger was pulled? If not, repeat the operation steps.
3. If the pistol still does not fire, refer to warning below.
WARNING: If the pistol still fails to shoot a projectile after checking
the three 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 safety in the “S” SAFE position - NO RED DOT
SHOWING, 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, the gun should be unloaded
before storing it. To unload the gun always position the safety in the
“S” SAFE position - NO RED DOT SHOWING, remove the SPEEDLOAD
magazine and empty the BB reservoir. Remove all ammunition from the
13-shot SPEEDLOAD 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 safety in the “S”
SAFE position - NO RED DOT SHOWING until you are ready to fire.
Store your pistol unloaded. Put “ON” safe and remove all ammuni-
tion from the pistol’s speedload clip and reservoir. Keep pistol away
from children and untrained shooters. Store ammunition separately
from the pistol to keep them from untrained shooters.
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,
and the ammunition has been removed from the gun.
Any plastic parts may be cleaned with a damp rag and mild soap
or detergent. Avoid using strong detergent, abrasive cleaning com-
pounds 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.
Your pistol was lubricated when built and should not require any
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 possible 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
