Not an airgun per se, but a mock-up made for display. Original photos were retouched and resized, then combined into a single photo. Airitis, FWIW I think your photos may turn out better with better lighting or maybe the lens needs cleaning?

Well, considering that I took these pix with a cell phone that has a broken cover lens, and I'm no Allan Funt, I can't complain.

Thanks for the advertisement and critique. Cobalt, you did an excellent job of "touching up" the image. You're right. This one used to be several air guns and a few foreign items. Now it is a dis-play piece. (emphasis on play!) I believe the one on camera in the Christmas Story movie was non-functioning also due to the speed Ralphie was able to cock the lever. Mine just takes it to the next non-functioning level!!

I figured they cocked the gun off camera then let him pretend to cock it so no effort needed. In the end, who knows and it don't really matter- still an icon.

You may be correct on both counts. Cocking off camera and it is an icon. And now, I-con pretend to be Ralphie. (so sorry)

Airitis has made some other cool Daisys- Mares Leg, tommy gun, submachine gun, and a double barrel. I'll post some photos this evening.

Thank you C.M. I asked my wife if I could make a fake cannon for the front yard. Negotiations not in my favor. LOL
