I think that's a pretty good buy. If I found that gun at a market for $45, I would buy it.

I've always thought the nickel plated Daisys were very attractive guns. This one is in need of attention and replating would be (for me) prohibitively expensive and would hurt overall value, but it would make a very nice gun. In fact I'd be tempted to replate it, replace the lead shot tube w/a steel tube, then using it as a shooter- but that's why I don't much mess w/the collectible guns. It would be very hard for me to leave nothing but fingerprints behind! haha

I would clean it up with a little oil and fine steel wool. I just love to look at those old guns. The "B" is over one hundred years old and it still works and looks good for it's age. I can't even fill up my gas tank for $45. I'm 74 years old and that gun was made about the same time my grandfather was born.

Also, I would like to say that I am not affiliated with this sale and don't even know anyone who is. I just really like those old guns with cast iron levers.

Well, it's sold. Not surprised- seemed like a good deal to me too.

The Daisy Model B was Mfg. in 1910 in the nickel finish

I have a nice Daisy Model B for sale, 1,000 shot old nickel finish still pretty good
and shoots hard, but I am asking $100.00 for this old Daisy.

Louie, if I may ask, in your experience what Daisy shoots the hardest?

Thank you and a very good question! 

I would say in my experience over the past 30 years, I have found the early Red Ryder to shoot the hardest, but I also have three Buck Jones guns and they all shoot very hard.

I am always amazed that a toy gun more than 50 years old, and the Buck Jones guns about 80 years old still shoot as hard as they do and are all original like the day they were mfg. 

As Cass Hough once said, It's A Daisy" indeed they are...

When you say "early" Red Ryder, are you talking about when they had the lower lever pivot screw? And thanks for the info!
