Yesterday the mailman delivered the box with 2 Daisy Red Ryders. A week ago a friend called and said he found 2 old BB guns in a shed he was tearing down. He said one had the trigger missing, and the other looked like a shot gun...with some sort of telescope. He said $40 for both of them. (Smoke pouring from my!!!! send money !!!)

I'm waiting for a $6 trigger replacement for the 1938B, but it looks decent and I'm betting it will shoot. 

The "shot gun" was a #111 Mod 40, with the shot tube missing. I inserted a replacement, and BANG !!! Fires with full force. The "sort of telescope" is a Daisy Model 300 scope, factory installed, and even has the rubber eye piece. Some minor rust that disappeared with oil and fine steel wool.  WOW !!!!

Nope...sorry, not for sale.

In our Daisy collecting careers, we win a few and we may lose a few.  It is certainly those serendipities that make it all worth while.  Congratulations on your find and recognizing an opportunity when it presents itself!  Great Find!

That was a great find, especially with the 300 scope.
