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.
The Red Ryder now includes the revolutionary LASSO Mount that adds an 11mm Dovetail rail onto this classic rifle. Once fitted, you can easily add a small scope, and keep your targets nice and close.
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: Very light, fast handling, fast loading and cheap to shoot. You can literally shoot hundreds of shots almost as quickly as you can cock the lever and it will only cost you a couple of quarters.
Things I would have changed: Accuracy is pretty marginal. Sights are only adjustable for elevation. I would gladly pay $150 more for a more accurate B.B. gun that I dont have to feed individual bbs from the muzzle. Make a hybrid Red Ryder/Avanti and Id order one in a heartbeat. Stock, while wood, looks like it was cut from a 1x4, (the sides are literally flat), and its too big for many children. This can be easily remedied with a saw however. For an adult its a little small, but Im a 6 footer and it doesnt bother me at all.
What others should know: This is the perfect tool for practicing instinct shooting. Hang a golf ball on a string, stand back 5 yards or so and shoot it repeatedly as quickly as you can. Your first shot will set it swinging and then it becomes a challenge. Accuracy is marginal and gets considerably worse with distance At 5 yards its pretty good. Expect about 1.5 inches at 10 yards. 20 yards is about the maximum range. Trigger is pretty good and given the accuracy limitations there is no reason to improve it. Same thing for the sights. The basic notch and post sight is great for fast instinctive shooting. It should however be adjustable for left and right. Mine was off about an inch at 10 yards. I bent it a little and that seemed to do the trick. Power is pretty anemic, but if thats important to you, then you should buy something else. Its made for hunting pop cans and power is adequate for that.
Things I liked: Complete newbie here and I got a RR because as a kid I shot them at summer camp. I'm 58. And because my girlfriend was a US Army sharpshooter in the Gulf War. She bought one too. We knew we would like to do backyard plinking and target shooting in my one car garage and had realistic expectations. Our expectations have been greatly exceeded. The accuracy in particular had shocked us. Tight target groupings at the length of the 1-car garage and I have been able to hit...and split...those small plastic soldiers with only a very rare miss. My GF then placed an earplug in the hole that was the bullseye of our target...and I nailed it on the first shot, with the BB embedded in the earplug. I was worried that the lack of a windage sight adjustment would be an issue, but not so. At the present time we don't feel the need to upgrade to anything more substantial because the RR is all we need for our small back yard and one car garage "range".
Things I would have changed: Maybe I got an exceptional sample but a windage adjustment would be a good idea.
What others should know: Just buy it. The low velocity makes it useful for fun shooting in situations where more powerful guns wouldn't be appropriate. and BB's cost a tenth of a cent.
Things I liked: looks like the one I had as a kid [10-13 years old-----------I am now 74 years young]
Things I would have changed: I find that it is hard to load
What others should know: I have not shot this rifle----------------not sure if I will, I can't rate the accuracy--------it is in my rifle display case for others to view.
