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

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

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

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

I have two of the Red Ryder Cork Carbine guns, 965-55

These are very nice and good looking cork guns, but I only use for display, both are in mint condition.

They were made in Plymouth.

Ok  so I was trying to insert a picture on the 894 operation, but I guess that is not allowed??
Anyway I had been working to make the 894 function as it should and want to add my two cents on what one needs to do to make these work.. First you need 1/2 inch cork balls made from agglomerated cork. (That is they are made with little pieces of corks pressed together), not solid (or virgin) corks. This type of cork compresses more than if they were made out of solid or virgin cork.  These are readily available from a company called Widgetco  here is link: https://www.widgetco.com/1-2-inch-cork-balls-agglomerated?gclid=CjwKCAjw2cTmBRAVEiwA8YMgzTWxn7JwJl1SVolYA-YP0RrboxIYGsa_yUpHFrvkCO9PiRKYzIcBxhoCnYcQAvD_BwE

Next you have to understand how this gun works:(  here's where I wish I could add a picture)

Anyway there is a 2 inch or so chamber at the back end (chamber loading end) of the barrel.  This chamber I will call the "cork ball chamber".  On cocking and firing the first cork, a piston pushes a cork ball about an inch and half into this chamber.  There it sits.  It does not come out. On The next cock and fire, a second cork ball is pushed into the chamber by the piston.  It compresses the air between it and the first ball that is stuck in there and this air pressure propels the first cork ball out of the chamber and barrel (with a loud pop!!!).  The second cork ball is now stuck in the cork ball chamber waiting for a third ball to be cocked and fired to propel it out...  and so on...  This is why you need those agglomerated cork balls so they compress well (and easy)!!!

Next you need to make sure that chamber is free of crud and rust... It should be on the inside as smooth as possible..  I used 420 paper and a dowel to really polish it up, then used metal polish...
With a little silicone wiped in there, the corks will fly!!!!

Hope this helps anyone with 894 problems...   There are no seals or air plungers or anything that would resemble a BB gun in this rifle.  Just a piston pushing a cork ball into a chamber, and the next cork ball causing air pressure to propel the first one out.....
Her is a copy of the instruction and operation hang tag from Trevor Adam's web site.... FYI

I have a Skeet Shooting Outfit, in the box. They made a 10ft. and a 15ft. version. Had both, but sold one. They're really cool. I would never try to shoot, or operate the trap. I learned my lesson, on cocking vintage bb guns, this winter. I cocked one of my cast iron Daisy 20th Centuries, and the stock broke off. I was sick and embarrassed. I fixed it, where you can't tell. Sometimes I get brave, and I'll cock and shoot my Daisy 1st model, but very carefully. The sound a 1st model makes, when fired, is way cool.

Jackdog,

Thanks for the great information!  I've long wanted to find one of those, and pretty much given up.  Learning about them at the detail you provided is kind of the next best thing! 

There are some threads around about how to post.  That said, if you want to send the pictures you want inserted to me, I'll happily post them for you.  Ltssvn@gmail.com
