through side of receiver. Logo is on Right side of stock  Where does this one fit in the system.

Wouldn't it be Model: No. 1938? That's what I thought was going on...
 
Also, according to the Blue Book (which I know we both agree has mistakes) the phillips screws and logo on right side of stock vs left indicates 1978 only. To me it seems like it should be called a 1938 variant 2. Opinion? Correction?

The 1938 Daisy came out in 1972. It was a copy of the 1949 111-40 Red Rider. It had a wooden stock and a wooden forearm with a metal band around it. The Stock had the Red Rider logo on the left side but did not have the Fred Harmon signature. The designation on the gun was No. 1938 although they were called it a Model 1938. These guns were made until 1979. Some time during the production the logo was moved to the right side of the stock. I do not know when but I have two  No.1938s and I have one of each. Both guns are original. Some time in 1979 or 1980 A slot was added to the top of the barrel as a safety so you could see if a BB was in the loading tube. This was called a Model 1938A. the designation on the gun remained No.1938. I also have one of these. This gun was only made for one year. The next change was to add a safety to the trigger a loading door in the barrel drop the removable shot tube and replace it with a fixed shot tube and a plastic insert and sight in the end of the barrel. This is the Model 1938B. This is the same gun they make today except for the decline in the quality. The production dates came from an article at DaisyKing.com.

Great info, thank you. That all makes sense to me and I can't believe I haven't read it as I've been on that site several times. In my opinion these should be referred to as variants of the 1938 the same way as is done with the No 111 Model 40.

The No 1938 with the slot cut into the barrel was still just called a No 1938.The model 1938 A is when they redisgned the rifle and added a safety to it.The safety had problems with it and when you sent it in for repair they stenciled model 1938b on the side.I don't have a model 1938 A but have the others.If you look on the net at rifles sold that were model 1938a you will see it is just like the model 1938b.There was not a No1938a
