I liked the looks of it. But disapointed in the use of plastic or carbon fiber. The price was right.Things I would have changed:
Get rid of the plastic . I owned an original back 50 yrs. ago. The hand lever was iron and the place to put in the bb's was metal. Why couldn't you make this one like an original.What others should know:
Still shoots the same! don't know what kind of wood or is it plastic used in the stock and forearm.

I thought the "70th Anniversary" emblem would be a decal, perhaps lithographed on in silver paint. Instead I found a metal casting, flawlessly inset into the wood of the stock so that it was almost exactly flush with the surface. The plastic trigger assembly is comfortable, and probably an improvement over the traditional stamped sheetmetal version. Daisy has added seven click-stops to the cocking mechanism, probably as an "anti-bear trap" feature. If you don't fully cock your Red Ryder, NOTHING will happen -- which means nothing BAD will happen. Just finish cocking it, and it will shoot.Things I would have changed:
I wouldn't mind the plastic cocking lever if it didn't feel like I was going to break it off every time I cocked the gun, although it did get easier to cock after several cycles bedded in the working parts and worked in the lube. The famous "Red Ryder" stamping was very unevenly impressed into the wood of my example (barely visible near the center), but I suspect many of the Originals suffered the same shortcoming. Otherwise, changes should be made with extreme caution; this is a replica, after all.What others should know:
I purchased a Daisy Model 25 replica from Pyramid at the same time I purchased my Red Ryder; see my review of the Model 25. If you are considering a choice between these two guns, you should know that the Model 25 has a much heavier, more substantial feel, fewer plastic parts, and might well be more satisfying to own. But the Model 25 holds only 50 rounds, while the Red Ryder holds hundreds, and is easier to load. Both guns are about equally powerful. The Red Ryder's sights, on the other hand, have no windage adjustment. Neither did the Original, so adding windage sights would be inauthentic.
