The legendary Red Ryder! Who hasn't wanted one of these? Daisy's 1938 Red Ryder model is still a favorite of boys and girls (and men and women). Suitable for shooters 10 and older (with adult supervision), this lever-action spring rifle is lightweight, easy to cock and durable. The solid wood forearm and engraved wood stock are just the right length for young shooters.
With a capacity of 650 BBs (Never shoot BBs at hard objects or water!), you'll be shooting all day long! The rifle comes with a blade and ramp front sight and an adjustable open rear sight. It has a stamped metal receiver and synthetic cocking lever.
This rifle is perfect for plinking, shooting paper targets and for training new shooters. The Red Ryder is intended for shooting targets UP TO 5 meters away - about 16.5 feet. Safety glasses for the shooter and everyone else in the vicinity are necessary, as BBs can bounce back. Remember to remove all pets from the area, as BBs can ricochet in many unexpected directions.

Things I liked: This is the ICON in the BB GUN Industry. The classic a Christmas Story featured this timely classic. This is also good, to take to shows and get it signed by cast members. I purchased this before, I knew about Pyramid Air and their great prices.
Things I would have changed: It would be nice to have a wee bit more power, but then, it may not be the Red Ryder.
What others should know: If you collect or your a shooter or BOTH, add this to you collection.
Things I liked: Fun, fun, fun! That is what I like best about this BB gun. I also like the materials (real wood and metal). I like the fact that it can hold a lot of ammunition (less time spent reloading). It is a great value for the money. The accuracy is great. Very satisfied.
Things I would have changed: Not much. Perhaps a metal cocking lever? But the plastic one seems sturdy enough.
What others should know: I recently purchased a Daisy Model 25 pump action BB gun (see my review) and this Red Ryder compares favorably. The actions function differently and the guns look different, but the power and accuracy seem to be almost identical. From that perspective it is like they are the same gun internally. But it is fun having both for variety. For the price, these Daisy BB guns are a great value. They are reasonably well put together, are made of decent materials (wood and metal) and in my opinion are pretty darn accurate for smooth bore BB guns. And most importantly they are fun. I find myself going through a lot of BBs these days, and a lot of empty soda cans!
Things I liked: This little BB rifle is everything you need to teach gun safety and practical skills. In my 35yrs of shooting I have yet to come across a gun that is not accurate; a good marksman evaluates themselves before placing blame on the gun. This Daisy is no exception. I've personally have shot 60-80(10 shot) points standing at 5meters, and that's considering the horrible iron sights, short sight radius, and extremely short length of pull...and I'm 6'2". This little BB gun gets underrated too often due ridious expections, and/or poor shooter abilities. It is completely accurate within it's range, under 15meters. I shoot clays out to 40yards no problem...without sights, into intuitive sighting. Furtermore, the cocking of the lever has been fine for every child that's come to shoot it. I can only hope Daisy NEVER stops making these...not that I expect them to.
Things I would have changed: Metal lever would be nice, die cast even... How about an adult size?
What others should know: Range capability...keep your expectations under control. Highly incourage others not to put dirty BB's in any gun. I've had this happen and had to break it down to remove...you DO NOT want to take it apart. Anything past 12-15meters the sights are no good. I shoot clays out to 40yards no problem...without sights, into intuitive sighting. At further distances, use intuitive shooting...same as primitive bows
Where is this one made? I know the new Bucks are made in China. :-( Is this one US made?
