Any  suggestions as to how I can obtain a listing of all the different BB gun  variations of 1894s that have been manufactured by Daisy?

I have over 20 DIFFERENT models and know there are still more. Some issues consisted of as few as 50 guns. I have tried Daisy Museum and several other sources and no luck.

You might start by listing yours and see if anyone else has something not on the list.
I think it would be interesting to see what turns up.

A while back I took a stab at making a list of the ones I was aware of.  I clearly wan't all that scientific, and this is also as far as I took it. ;)  Anyone can feel free to add to / reformat this list as they see fit!  It might be better to organize them into phases:

Metal side
Plastic side button safety
Plastic side slide safety 

But, I don't have any idea of the dates associated with the major design changes.  Could certainly use some help with that. 

Model 1894 Spittin Image, metal receiver, plastic stock and forearm, no staple or ring

Are these two carbines marked differently?

Model 5894 NRA Centennial Commemorative Carbine painted steel receiver, barrel bands, buttpad "1871 NRA Centennial 1971" engraved on side plate, plastic stock and forearm --1971,2 
 NRA Centennial Commemorative with number matching pistol (179) --1971,2 

 Was  the model sold with a matching pistol to NRA Life members was  (in the markings) than the general sales model?

Hey Marv, come on and chip in.. which ones do you have / know about?  :)

Gary, I'm not positive, but I think the NRA that was sold by itself looks the same as the one that was sold as a set with a number matching pistol.  Maybe someone that has one from both sets can chip in?  I don't have either.

Sorry...2 trips to emergency room, had a nasty fall !!!

Here's are a few of mine that I don't think were mentioned: 
1) Ted Williams, Sears
2) Golden Boy with round barrel
3) 1894 with factory scope
4) "CLASSIC" stencil on receiver
5)  1894, chrome receivers, etc.
6) John Wayne
7) Rocky Mt Elk
8) Ducks Unlimited
9) ????Probably not original...All black EXCEPT gold receivers, round barrel

Will try to assemble a list of all known models...using all the above posts.

Sorry to hear it Marv!  Hope you're healing up nicely now.

Talk about learning something new.. I have 2 Sears Sears Octagon barrel 19052 guns.  They have all the same text on the barrel, except for different Reg #s (obviously).  One I knew as being the version called the Golden Boy.  I'd seen a fair amount of pictures that showed a flat goldish finish, and read the warnings that the finish comes off pretty easily.  The other one has a much brighter, plated looking finish.  I asked the Museum if the Golden Boy was released with two different finishes.  They could neither confirm nor deny.  Well, it turns out it is the Golden Spike version I didn't know about until today!  Comparing it to pictures of the Winchester Golden Spike leaves no doubt.  Leave it to the powers that be that they both have the same model number.  But at least I finally found out what it is!  Thank you, forum :) Here is a picture of the Spike and Boy side by side, showing the difference in their finishes  

Ironically, there's a Winchester Golden Spike on Gunbroker right now.  So for those who would like to see it:

I didn't know the Golden Spike had a different finish- a killer find, too, BurghDude!. It and the chrome model Marv mentioned would make a striking display. And a spendy one to boot!

"Replica Centennial Rifle Crafted by Daisy".
Only model I've ever seen that has that inscribed on the barrel. 
Metalic gold (not paint), curved butt plate
Mod 799.19052

You're right!  I forgot to look at the cursive script by the oil hole.  The Golden Boy just has "Crafted By Daisy", and the Golden Spike has "Replica Centennial Rifle Crafted by Daisy".  I put a picture of the two back in my earlier post, showing the difference in receiver color.

Think we have just confirmed a "puzzle" that few know about.
Some time ago I had a discussion with BAKERS AIRGUNS about a GOLDEN SPIKE they had listed. I asked how it differed from the golden boy and was told "There is no difference". Then I asked how they knew they had a Golden Spike and never got an answer. I guess they were correct (????) only difference is the "script"

Does anyone care to share pictures and what models they are of their 1894s? We could make something of a visual record here in the forum. If anyone want to send their pictures to me, I'll happily do the legwork of posting them. Or maybe a good question is, does anyone else think this is worth doing? ;)

One gun at a time?
Or, groups, or Collections?
If you do groups, I would suggest no more than 2 at a time.

Marv, hope you are gonna' be O.K.

The flat finish looks similar to a Sears version of the 880 I have. I bet it was reserved for their branded guns.

So Marv, I think I agree that singles or small groups is the best way to go.  I also think we should start another thread with the pictures.  Maybe other users will use it as a repository over time.

I can take pics but no good at "posting" them.
Why don't you start a new thread and post a few singles.. that could give an idea as to how we can contribute.
