Today I received a barn yard find, bought it on pure speculation (www.GunBroker.com item number 167022440), the auction photos were not too clear, it was very much covered with surface rust, rear sight missing, and stock appeared too dark to really see much but,  it was described as cracked.

 
Upon receipt today, discovered it was a Daisy Red Ryder No 111 Model 40, with a COPPER pinched front barrel band sight, , COPPER forearm band, although in both cases the copper is well worn. 
 
The stock is home-made, but well constructed,  and of course no Red Ryder logo.  I might try to sink a dowel through the pistol grip area where the carck runs and glue it in but will have to 'sleep' on it.  It is somewhat loose, can not get a tight fit to the receiver w/o doing something to it.  I have a Red Ryder stock due to arrive from eBay auction so might use that but it will not match the forearm, although I have a spare forearm that will match the forthcoming stock, but....then I will lose the charm of the barn yard find.  Decisions, decisions!!
 
It shoots STRONG and HARD, but w/o the rear sight it is tough to gain accuracy but as I was shooting it repeatedly was able to gain some accuracy.
 
UPDATE 6/10/2010:  Located a screw adjustable rear sight for $7.50, terrific!  Now all I have to do is figure out how to best attach it!

I never thought there would be this much demad for the scope on eBay. 
A surprising outcome.
I will be listing the Mod 25 soon.
 
Thank You for the information.
