I assume the older 1938 Daisy BB guns have value. 1938B? I grew up with the 1894s as many did, my favorite. Really interested in the Model 21 double barrel, or others. Thanks,

You can check on GunBroker to see what they are selling for, be sure to check the ones that actually sell, not just asking prices. Some of the special editions will bring a premium.
As BB gun collecting attracted more people collectors began buying and saving new guns so there is a good supply of many of them.

The typical 1938 Red Ryders are generally worth more than a typical 1938b. There were far less of them, they were very similar to the 111 model 40, and in good condition, fairly rare. 
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

I'm about where Willie is with regard age as such I don't post all that much.
Willie could have probably helped you out if you wished to purchase an air rifle, unfortunately he just sold off just about all of his collection, it would not hurt to ask him anyway.
It seems when a 1938-B comes up for sale a lot of sellers list it as a model 1938 which it is not.
IF my memory serves me right there was a Model 1938 and a Number 1938 , both have the lightning loader system.

I came across a true 1938 today.
I did not buy it as the shot tube would not come out.  It would go about a half a round and get tight like something was in the base area.  It also let the bb's roll out the tube when I pointed it down.  I thought the bb retainer spring/clip may have come loose and is binding the tube.
It was priced at $25 and was in pretty good shape.
Should I have purchased it?
I collect only the older Plymouth Daisy's so I am not familiar with these.
Should I go back and get it?
Thanks
Rick

For $25 if it is in good shape visually I'd have probably bought it. I have one with a cracked stock though, so maybe I'm biased. $25 isn't too bad though, either way I don't think.

It did look good hardly any marks on it.  It was marked Model 1938 and nothing else.
It has the pressed in Red Ryder on the left side of the stock.  It was missing a couple of the nuts.
I just do not know much about the Rogers Daisy's.
I may go back to see if it is still there if $25 was a good price.  I just had no idea.
Any suggestions on pulling the shot tube out?
Thanks

Go buy it! 
Try to turn gun upside down and rock the shot tube back and forth. 
It may take a long time but should come out.

My Red Ryder is marked NO. 1938; REG. NO. K789875. It has the lightning loader system. Was there also one marked Model 1938? Thanks

This one does have the lightening loader.
I am going back and try to buy it later today.
I will then try to get the shot tube out.
That and the missing nuts were the only negatives to the Daisy.
Thanks to all for the info.
