I picked up a bb gun at an auction yesterday for my collection and I'm not really sure who made it. Its very old and was in a lot with a Hamilton that I was not able to get. I was wondering if it may an early Daisy, manufactured by Hamilton in Plymouth Michigan. The auction gallery had no information on the gun and it has no markings on it anywhere. It was something I hadn't seen before so I bought the mystery gun.

It appears to be nickel and the pump mechanism is similar to a bicycle pump on the bottom with the barrel above it. 
Attached is a photo of the same gun I found online while trying to research it... The one I have is the gun on the bottom. Unfortunately the photo I did find was from an old auction and provided no information. There is a small medallion over the trigger on the one in the photo but mine does not have this nor does it look like it ever did.

Anyone here have any idea of what this is?

Thanks for the quick response Ejwillis!

It has no lettering anywhere that I can see, even used a pair of drugstore cheater glasses haha. It looks like it was designed to be a take down rifle... there is one thumb screw just forward to the trigger the releases the barrel from the stock.

I'm happy to have a lead to research.

If this is against forum rules posting other gun manufactures I understand if the moderators pull the thread.

I have two Daisy BB guns that I need help identify.
Model H , wood stock Pat dates July 30-01, Nov 3-08
Model 25 pat  no   1,097, 244   last no  1,573,889  (total of 5 pat. numbers.

Both rifles are in used condition, but have extensive bluing on the metal.

the third rifle has a stamped metal lever with a front sight at can moved back and the BB loaded--probably not a Daisy

I believe that all three rifle came from an estate and probably date between 1910 to 1920,s

I'm not sure but I think if you look at the breech cap there could be an identification.  


One place you might enjoy is American Vintage Airguns https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/americanvintageairguns/

Thank you Cee. Knowing where to look is one thing, but knowing what it is by sight- like oldwizzer- is quite another! Maybe someday, but I'm just not there yet. lol
