Have some limited edition Daisy rifles that the box has never been opened. Would you open them to take pictures to sell them or leave them unopened. They are about 8 to 10 years old

Any Red Ryders?

I would leave them closed. Anyone interested can google the models to see what they are, or you could add "stock photos" of them disclosing that the photos are not of the actual gun. JMO.
 
Good luck!

I vote for leaving them closed, also.  They're only new in a sealed box once.

    The problem I ran into on new guns still in the box that are blued have a habit of rusting on the side of the barrel and the receiver.  The Red Ryders were more likely to do it.  Usually it was the side touching the box that it happened on.  Painted guns not so much.  What state did they come from, how were they stored, southern states with high humidity were the worst.  I know that collectors love to have that box still stapled and in mint condition.  It drives me crazy to not know the condition of the gun and to hold it and look at it or hang it up for a while.  I bought one that the seller said if you want me to open it and inspect it before shipping then he would and I did.  You could give that option to the buyer but the thing is who knows the condition of the gun sitting for 10, 20 or more years and still stapled in the box.  Just my thought on new old stock still sealed.

If I was interested in buying a certain gun, I would want to see photos of the gun.  You could mention in the ad that the box had only been opened for the purpose of taking photos.

  I believe this is Gary, I just bought an Encyclopedia from him and we talked to each other.  He may have shut down the account or started another one just recently.  His old profile name was DaisyBBgunner  and he lives in Tennessee.   The new one might be  Daisyfan104.  You might have to wait until he reveals himself on the site.  Kind of like being The Red Ryder or The Lone Ranger and not knowing his real identity.

I agree with  Gary and Dennis on this one. I would open them up "carefully" and make the buyer comfortable the guns are in good shape.  6 years ago I moved and had all my Daisy's stored for 4 months in a Temp and Humidity controlled storage unit.  All 7 of the Daisy's in boxes rusted up on me in areas that touched the box.   I wouldn't buy a sealed boxed Daisy that is over a year old..   Just me, I guess from my bad experience...  Rick

Gary Garber = daisybbgunner@aol.com = DaisyFan104 on eBay.
Long-time member of the forum.  At one time, the Museum asked to be the site monitor and I did that for a while.  It was at a time when bots were hard to keep of the site.

Steve asked a legitimate question.  I was surprised to see that my level was "Groupie" and that I had a relatively recent join date.  I did discover that I also had an account using the name daisybbgunner.  Not certain if it will accurately display my level.  I know I had to reach a large amount of posts to once have that coveted Red Ryder level!

Saluting smartly!
I am finally retired so I may have more time to spend at Daisy Talk. I finally have time again to enjoy the Daisy hobby.

Okay about jackdog's comment in this thread about hoping I enjoy my tag, the story is below.  
But, first let me comment about the hang tag repros that he produces.  They are simply excellent.  I collected original Daisy hang tags for many years and jackdog's tags are as close as you can get to an original without wrinkling it and rubbing in dirt!  See his tags on eBay.
So here's the story: Years ago, while on a research trip to Rogers, Daisy let me assemble a Red Ryder in their factory, which at the time was in the Neosho, Missouri caves.  The Museum later gave me an engraved forearm for that Red Ryder to commemorate the event. Later, I asked jackdog to design a hang tag for the gun.  He did an outstanding job and the tag now hangs from Red's gun!

Rick, I want to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the Red Ryder hang tag. It looks great hanging from my new edition Christmas gun! You are an artist and your wares are simply the best one could ever hope to see!

Thanks again, Mark

It is individuals like Mark and Rick that make this hobby so enjoyable.  They are both certainly high caliber gentlemen who are willing to take the time to share their knowledge and expertise with the members of this forum.  I can personally say they have both helped with with questions and issues that has arisen in my collecting of Daisy's.  Kudos to both of you gentlemen.
