I just purchased a Model 107 made in Preston Ontario, Canada. Can anyone give me some information and value on it. It is the plain model in good condition. Thanks.

I have three Daisy Model 107, Buck Jones Model guns.

I would like to see a picture if you could email one.

I am uncertain as to value of this gun, usually the 107 Buck Jones will be valued around
$200.00 or higher depending on condition.

Thanks,

I don;t think it is the Buck Jones, they were made in the 30's with wood stocks. The 'newer' 107's  were probably 50's or 60's and had plastic stocks. several versions and paint colors including long and short stocks.
Used the same  107 frame as the Buck Jones version but no sundial.

Gary,

That is correct and I had two of the 107 guns at one time in my collection, but when I started to sell some these were the first to go. 

The 107 was made in Plymouth and in Rogers.

I still have three of the Buck Jones 107 guns, always liked the look of this gun, and they still shoot real hard to be 84 years old. Older than me in fact....

Louie, and those old ones are hard to cock. The first one I bought was so hard to pull back I thought it was broke. I don't know how the younger kids shot them.

You are correct there, the Buck Jones 107 is very hard to cock even for me today. I know it would have been hard for young kids to cock back in the days.

I have 10 on the wall, one of each variant of the 107...except a few I'm missing. I still need the other variant of the King #5, the two variants of the Sears Ranger that are in Gary's book (the one I have is a third variant that Gary has looked at and confirmed he was unaware of), and lastly, a Canadian made 107 I guess!

So there are al least 14 versions? (and probably more).
At least this keeps things interesting.
