1961 DAISY MODEL 97 BB GUN RICOCHET SOUND $300
This is the Daisy "Model 97" Lever Action BB Gun with 'Ricochet' Sound Effect built into the forward chamber. This apparently was only made for the year 1961, and has the patent number: '2,758,586.' This also has the registration number: G274569 This is a rather rare Daisy and indeed does have an odd and interesting feature in the Faux Ricochet!  Mainly due to the fact it made the ricochet sound and most kids hated that sound after a while because it scared off the birds that they were shooting at. That usually led to the removal of the mechanism that made the sound, and that's why only one year of production and hard to find in working condition.
This one works just fine and still has a strong blast, as well as the Ricochet sound. The gun is 35" long, and has overall light handling wear.

I have a couple of these and they both look like the photos. Daisy also made a pop gun just like the BB gun under a different model number. They are a fun gun.

I have a pop gun and several of these. Two of them have the most warped stocks I have ever seen.
Must have been a bad year for what ever they made the stock from.
Cobalt-yours looks nice and straight.

Thank you. Edited my posts to reflect this, and again- nice gun, don't think I've seen a better one- I've read the silk screening was easily lost to normal play wear. Interesting these guns could have gold or black levers. I believe there was a JC Higgins version that had a lighter colored stock but haven't been able to locate a good photo.

You're right about the warped stocks- most I've seen photos and descriptions of mention the stocks and forearms being warped.
 
For the record, the photos of the model 97 above is the same exact gun being sold by SFCKAGAN in the first post. It IS a very nice one!

Thanks Mark for posting the photo's for the 97. You can definitely see a slight curve in the stock. From what I have seen and read, I think that all of the models with the plastic stocks, develop a curve to some degree. Just the nature of the material that they used back then. With plastic stocks, it's important to store them flat.
Thanks,
Dave

Not sure that storing them flat would even help. I believe the curve develops from changes in temp and slight stresses that developed when the cheap plastic cooled to harden.
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.
