    Posted: August-31-2019 at 5:15pm
In a antique mall today I came across a gold colored plastic little scope made in Plymouth Mich.
It was $10 bucks so I could not pass it up.
It is 11 inches long and 1 inch in diameter.
No caps or bracket but the optics are crystal clear.
Anyone know anything about it?
Not sure I needed it but I do now own it.
I just have a hard time passing up anything Daisy and made in Plymouth.
Any info is appreciated.

IIRC a scope/sight like that was once used on one model of the Daisy toy pop guns. I'll look and see if I have any photos...

This is what I have found so far. If I find more I'll post them.



Here's another one:

I haven't looked through this folder in ages, so I'm glad you mentioned that sight. The Daisy toy pop guns were neat!

That looks like it. The made in Plymouth was the interesting part for me. I had a hunch it might be for a pop rifle.
I just had not encountered one before. The mount was different than anything I had encountered before also. I appreciate the info on it. Now I know.
Thanks again.

So Rick, it actually has lenses? Does it magnify? That's cool and something I never knew- I had thought they were a sort of peep/ghost sight like some of the other tube sights Daisy used.

Yes, it does have magnification of I am guessing of 2 or 3 X. I was surprised at it and is clear as a bell.
It did not have any cross hairs and that led me to believe it was for a pop rifle.
It was so different I just could not pass it up for $10 bucks and from Plymouth.
I am just a sucker for anything Daisy from Plymouth in nice shape.

Thanks Rick. That's wild! I have no doubt you got it for way less than it's actual worth, too. Well done!

This was also used in The Daisy No 1965 Guns of The West set.
