I have a Daisy 1894 that only shoots a bb about 5 feet out the barrel so I suspect it needs an air tube or spring update. Anyone have a copy of the repair manual for the 1894 or suggestions?

Daisy will send you an owners manual I doubt they will send you a repair manual.Did you put a few drops of 20wt.n.d. oil down the barrel and rest it on the stock ,barrel up over night? If not give it a try.May take a few days of this if you've never oiled it before.Worth a try.

Tried the oil, same thing. Called Daisy, they don't have any.

I have taken the gun apart most of the way but the

cocking lever must be removed in order to get the plunger assembly out

and at this point I'm not sure what to do because there is a welded piece of metal that goes over the lever, it is just in front of the cocking lever pivot. Do I need to cut this strap?

Don't cut nothing, The model 1894 was one of the most difficult BB guns to assemble. That was one assembly line I never had to work on, thank God!! The lever has a metal piece rivoted on the front of the lever.

Greg,get yourself a back copy of Airgun Hobby Magazine-Vol. 3  No 2,It has a great article with pictures on how to tear down the mod.1894,Ron and Jen Scalzo did the article.I believe that the plunger assembly must be removed first,using a special fork or one you can make to push in on the plunger this should let you remove the anchor pin,after removing the pin and the plunger assembly you should be able to pull the cocking lever out of the frame.

Hi Greg,
there is a german website that has a large collection of reviews/descriptions of airguns. There also is one for the Daisy 1894 and it includes an exploded view and parts list.

Here is the link, hope it helps.

I have three Daisy rifles with the same problem.  Daisy informed me via email to oil them with 30 weight non-detergent oil then try them out about 12 to 15 times.  If that does not work send them to Daisy for repair. 
 
So far two of the rifles are now working after about 15 tries each.  I have not tried the third one yet.  Owner manuals recommend 30 wt. oil and do not recommend use of light household oils.

I purchased a "copy" of the Daisy factory service manual for the 1894 from Bryan and Associates for $6.00 which included shipping. I just received my parts yesterday but haven't torn in to it yet. If you're interested in a copy contact Ron at BryanAndAc@aol.com and he'll hook you up.

OK Greg, I finally got my 1894 rebuilt and it wasn't a tough as I expected. I got some expert advice from another collecter online and with his advice and the manual I got it fixed. If you're still looking for help contact me via email and I'll see what I can do.

Hey Greg, If you're still looking for a manual get in touch with me. I've got a copy of a 1894 service manual I'll try to scan into my computer and email you a copy. I recently picked up a Buffalo Bill 3030 that needs a new plunger so I'm going to tear in to it this afternoon and get it shooting again.

The Daisy Model 1894 is a very nasty beast to make an attempt at repair; many have taken them apart but few have put them back together.  Try mailto:baker19711@yahoo.com - baker19711@yahoo.com for some information, or call him at 937-935-4887 in MtVictory, OH.

Hi I have taken the 1894s a part they are tricky . your 1894 dose not shoot goods is because if you look at the barrel it is smaller at the front of the gun then the back. so after years of being if the fired position the plunger   forms to the smaller size.  JIM  COPLEN CAN FIX THE GUN OR YOU CAN GET THE PART FROM HIM 520 207 8188 IF YOU TAKE IT APART TAKE PICTURE AS YOU  ARE DOING IT. BECAUSE THERE IS ON SPRING ON THE RIGHT SIDE THAT YOU WELL WANT TO REMIMBER WHERE IT GOS

If anyone is looking for an expert airgunsmith that can restore, repair and tune a Daisy Model 1894 BB Gun, check out Dennis Baker of Air Gun Repair, mailto:baker19711@yahoo.com - baker19711@yahoo.com or call him at 937 935 4887. 
 
I have eighteen Model 1894s (which includes the 30-30 Buffalo Bill Scout and the "Crafted by Daisy" Sears variations; he has restored/repaired 6 of them and currently has a 7th in progress.
 
I acquired many of the 18 via lot purchases because I was interested in a different specimen so the surplus has accumulated, and since I am somewhat anal about having inoperable guns around I send them to Dennis as long as they are economically repairable. 
 
If anyone is interested in purchasing one of my surplus Model 1894s message me at mailto:Clfmustang@aol.com - Clfmustang@aol.com .

Did you get this 1894 job done?
 
I just finished a completed tear-down and re-assembly of an old 1894 and replaced the gaskets.  Works fine now.  The hammer, trigger and cocking lever need to me removed in order to remove the plunger assembly and anchor pin.  Not hard to do, just takes a bit of patience and some time.  Let me know if you need any info.

Do you still have a digital copy of the 1894 Service Manual? I have a Couple of 1970s rifles; Buffalo Bill 3030, and a Golden Boy. Not firing would like to disassemble and look to get back into working order for my son.
