I recently purchased a 22 caliber breech load rifle. The markings on it are DAISY. There is also the number 0915 and a couple marks like foundry marks. It has an octagonal barrel checkered grip and a nice trigger guard plate. Would like to know if anyone knows anything about it. Based on what I've seen it looks to be a late 1890's rifle. Can send pictures if you think you might be able to identify.

Thanks. Looking at the marks it was made in Belgium. It has the LEG stamp with a crown and the Perron mark. Serial number is actually 9015.

Not really easy but if a luddite like me can do it....anyone can. You have to have a photobucket account. Put your pics there and then click and drag them here. Good luck.

Beautiful gun. Reminds me of a rusty old piece a friend of mine cleaned up and made new furniture for. That is a single shot rimfire .22 from late 19th century as well. Good find and interesting that "It's a Daisy"

Thanks. It's a nice wall hanger. Don't think I'll even try and shoot it.

Totally your call. My friends had no stock and looked like it sat in a barnyard for 75 years when he got it. He cleaned all the rust and built a stock and forearm for it. Now it's a very nice shooter. It does take a bit of work and knowhow though. Here's a pic of it. Real cutie.

Nice. I've got too many that I do want to shoot now. When I see something I've never seen that just looks cool I have to have it.

That looks like a flobert gun. they were made in Belgium and there are many different styles. I actually have one myself but styled differently. They had rolling block mechanisms to load the ammo (ammo was 6mm but you can shoot a 22 short out of it) These guns were the first rim fire guns ever made. I shoot CB caps out of mine. Here is a link to one that is similar to yours.

It's a Stevens Maynard .22 single shot. I envy his ability to take a rusty paper weight and turn it into a pretty little shooter.

I still haven't seen an answer to why it would have "DAISY" forged into the top of the barrel.
