    Posted: August-01-2015 at 10:21pm
Hi Daisy folks , has anyone know anything about these , I got one awhile back in great shape , picked up some 1/2" cork balls , loaded it up and ....jammed , took it all apart ( not that much fun ) and found a wooden ball stuck in the rear of the barrel , got it out and loaded it up again and ....jammed again , got it out , the gun seems to feed right , work right and makes a loud crack noise but just won't shoot those corks and seems to not build up enough pressure to shoot them even if I muzzle load them , I have to assume that it suffers from the same problem as the 1894's with the tapered barrel housings , just looking for advise and if anyone knows a ball park value for this gun in great shape but as far as I know doesn't shoot , thanks for any insight .

I have the same rifle and tried to shoot 1/2" cork balls and had the same problem with jamming.  I think it shoots balls that are slightly smaller then 1/2' Being that cork balls from Daisy for this rifle do not exist the only thing to do is shoot it with out any ammo. 
I happen to find a closed auction where an identical rifle sold for $86.00  It had 6 bids and the auction started at $75.00  The description said it may or may not shoot because of not having any cork balls. 
 
This is the only value info I could find in my search.

Hi Trekman , sorry in so long in thanking you for the information , I lost count of this thread , good advise , I even put a cork ball down the muzzle and still no pop , think it needs a new seal , it sounds like I paid too much for the gun but it is pretty cool none the less and if anyone needs corks I got mine from Widgetco , they work great in the model 25 and the Target Master 177 with the cork shot tube - fit perfect , I have someone whom is very good at re-building the 1894's so I think I will trade him , I just am not one to have things around for looks - they need to shoot and I am wise enough to know my limitations on re-building guns like these , thanks again for the info and take care .

Did Daisy make a cork gun and a pop gun version of the 1894?

They did, I think it was the model 894 mentioned above and it shot the round corks. If you're lucky enough to find one, they made a complete trap shooting kit with the same model also. I believe you stepped (or stomped) on a rubber bellows that launched the target.

Thanks, I have one someplace but I think it is just the pop gun.

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.

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?

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 .
