Hello, Daisy Air Gun collectors!  As everyone knows, Daisy just celebrated their 125th anniversary in Rogers, Arkansas.  I came up for the event, but missed out on having the opportunity to purchase a ticket in time to partake in the coveted activities provided.  Still, I went up to see the museum with my vintage 1959 Daisy air rifle and was happy to see that I had a particular gun that the museum did not have.  Well, lets cut to the chase already...

I have an all original 1959 Daisy "Western Auto Special"  BB air rifle for sale.  The gun has a bit of honest wear (scratches in the painted metal parts and on the plastic stock and forearm) but the gun is completely intact of all of its original parts.  As I already mentioned, I took the gun to the Daisy Museum and had the good fortune of speaking with the curator.  He told me that Daisy began production of the model 1201 "Western Auto Special" on May 06, 1959.  According to the registration number on my particular example, the gun was made on May 07, 1959.  So, I have one of the very first Daisy 1201's ever made! 

I have a video of the gun on youtube.  If you do a search for "Vintage Daisy Air Rifle", you'll find it.  I only paid twenty-five dollars for the thing and I really don't even know how much it's worth.  I'm in no hurry to sell the gun just because I think it's neat, but if someone makes me an offer that I can't refuse, than I'd be happy to part with it.  If you're interested, please let me know!

Hello!  I sent those photos to you today.  You should receive two emails because I had too many pictures to fit in the first.  I tried to take detailed photos.  Please let me know if you have any questions, and I thank you for your interest.

Hello, Steve.  I sent two emails with photos to your email address.  (I had to send two because the photo files were too big to squeeze into just one email.)  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!  And, I thank you for your interest.
