Cork 104,
 Thanks for the update on operation.
I wondered how a cork gun could work without air as described in a previous post.

Hi,i have a 894 cork balls repeater.it does work.you need at least two balls, and they have to be Made of cork , half inch or 12 mm caliper.let's Say you put those two balls in the loading gate load the gun with lever,maybe help the chambering by gently pushing the brass coursor.fully cock the hammer and shoot.nothin exit the barrel. Repeat the opration and should fire loud end strong. The actual barrel is a short tube Which is slightly smoller in diameter then the ball.the first ball is forced in the tube by a rod when pulling the triggger,then rests in the " inner muzzle" just like a cork in a bottle.when the following ball is forced in the barrel acts end perform as a piston seal itself, compressing the air inbetween the Two balls and letting the first pop away,and finally finding itself ready to be shot next round.and so on, up to 15 balls. The balls soffer often of deformation, somtimes of shattring, and ,probably due to the long "ovrbarrel ", it is unpredicteble where they going to hit.bye

I have two Red Ryder Cork Ball Carbine Guns Number 965-55 Training Rifle
Plymouth, MI

I have never had the cork balls, therefore I have never tried shooting these guns, but they are in almost mint condition, and one has the original sling.

The guns make great display or wall hanger guns.

The stock has a logo "Daisy Red Ryder" the likeness of Red Ryder with hat

Don't know if this thread is still active, but I wanted to add my two cents.... the 894 does not use air to propel the round cork.  It is a spring powered piston that pushes the  cork ball out of the barrel.  There are no seals in this gun to wear out.  The reason the cork balls jam is that they are too big.
I have several of these rifles and one works , the other is in pieces.  Also have the trap shoot mech.  in the box.  ..FYI.... Rick

My cork gun is a 894 and is smaller than a 1894 but a dead ringer , has the loading port and holds I guess maybe 8 or 10 of the round corks , all works but won't push air as it has the tapered air tube like the 1894 and thus has the same problem - shrunk seal , these kids must have been pretty strong then as I don't think the gun is any lighter to cock than it's big brother and I bet it really sent those corks flying .

I dug mine out. I think it said 964 (?). It is not a repeater, the loading gate is not movable and may not have even shot corks, probably just a pop gun.
It has a shorter barrel and stock than a regular 1894. It does not have the holes for the saddle ring.
It is missing the front sight/band/muzzle.
Is the 864 cork gun a 'regular' sized gun or short one?

They no doubt made both. After some quick research I found a model 894 C-B which was the trap model. Either are probably quite scarce.
