    Posted: January-03-2019 at 12:23pm
I recently had a chance to dig out my 4 NRA Centennials.

3 of them (sold to annual members) have the regular Model 1894 stamping on the frame with typical registration numbers.
Mine are L699242, L704384 and L739156

The other one is stamped Daisy NRA Special and the registration number is Reg No_____003832.
The Specials were sold only to NRA Life (and above) members.

Otherwise they all seem to be identical. The two regulars in the center of the picture have the typical piece broken off the tang.

That's a heck of a collection of NRAs you have- some of the very best looking rifles Daisy ever made!

Nice collection ! I have a NRA but the medallion looks like it is different . Maybe someone replaced the stock and glued a different one on . Would have to dig it out to see the reg. # s.

Being a hard core NRA member they are near the top of my list too.
I only wish they had chosen the musket instead of the rifle.


 I have never seen a rifle with a missing medallion but the pistols seem to have had a problem staying in place. I have seen several of them with it missing.

Wow!  I've never seen that "musket" before.  I'm guessing that's a real powder burner, right?

 Looks like in the photos the medallions are inset in the stock . Mine looks like it is just glued on .

Burgh dude-Yes, Winchester made a rifle and musket for the Centennial. I like the musket best. Would be a real challenge for someone to carve a wood stock and long fore end for a Daisy 1894 but it would be a great one to have. I can see why Daisy went with the rifle, off the shelf parts instead of a new fore end not used on anything else. But it may have fueled a release of some other musket models.

daisy addiction-Yes the medallions are set into the stock so they are flush. But hey are not thick like a coin, a lot thinner.

 Yes,mine is not flush and  it is thick . The stock must have been replaced along with a thicker medallion .There is no inset in the stock for a medallion . Would like to find original stock and medallion . Tang on receiver is not broke where it goes into stock . Most of the gun is in great shape and shoots strong .Thanx Bavaria !
