Hey folks.
I cannot believe I haven't registered here before.  I am in the middle of restoring my model 881 again. (I repaired it many times over the years. this time I'm un doing all of my previous modifications)
While buying all the required parts, I kept getting this nagging feeling that I was being watched. Then it hit me I should be looking for parts for my model 1000 as well.  I know very little about this gun as it's always taken a backseat to the 881. I bought it 30 plus years ago and it's in excellent shape. you can still see most of the silk screening on the main body.
I haven't had any luck searching for this particular model. All I have found are mentions of the Western Auto model from 1976. The Problem is this gun lot number is from 1977. I am not a daisy expert so I have no Idea what model it would be based off of. Nor have I found any parts information for the model 1000.
After all that rambling, I am left wondering what parts I would need to make it shoot correctly again. It cocks and fires, but the bb only goes about 10 feet. Is there a reseal kit that shares another model?
Hopefully you can follow my ADHD thru this process. :)
Thanks for any information, Steve

It sounds like your 1000 has a very common problem to the "wide frame" Daisys, and that is the abutment seal has come loose and is now riding on the air tube when the gun is cocked, instead of staying put against the abutment. 

To check, remove the shot tube and while looking into the end of the barrel, watch as you pull the lever as if you were cocking the gun. No need to fully cock it- you just want to watch to see if the abutment seal drops away as you work the lever. If it does, that's the problem.

One more thing- the 1000 uses the same seals as a 1894, which are smaller than what most other wide frame guns like the 95, 96, and 99 use. JG Airguns might have the piston but last time I looked they didn't show the abutment seals in stock.

Thank you. As soon as I get this 881 back together I'll take a look. This hole thing started over a neighbor with a opossum that was trashing his front yard. And then my 881 wouldn't fire. ( and I can't shoot a conventional rifle in city limits)

You sure it wasn't an armadillo? Possums aren't known for doing anything more than scaring people who walk up on one and the possum gapes it's mouth at them. Armadillos will dig for worms, snails, and grubs at night and can make quite a mess of a grass yard, but are also known to eat things like ticks. In any event, a .177 air gun is not a humane way to go about it. Solely my opinion.

He said he saw a opossum. could be an armadillo, we have both. In either case, I think he just wants to deter it, not kill it.
Is there someplace I might find a good parts list for the 1894?
