I just took the opportunity to rework a severely damaged model 95.   The barrel was dented and bent about half way down and the shot tube was missing the muzzle cap. I was able to cut the barrel, add a piece from a pop gun, and shorten the shot tube, adding the muzzle cap from a messed up model 25. The lesson?   Don't throw away all of the broken Daisy's.   Fixing them doesn't always mean keeping them original.

BTW, yes, it shoots great!

Nice save.  Any resurrection is good.

Got them, Thanks, I have the same problem.
Nice looking job. How long is it? Looks like a handy sized one.
Especially like the ventilated pop gun muzzle.

Thanks Gary.

Barrel is 14 3/8. OAL is 32 1/4. The forestock is a cut down Red Ryder. Lol. I have no clue where the mount for the spotting scope came from.   I just thought it would look cool!
