Is there such a thing as a Daisy Red Ryder Model 403 as listed on ebay?

Don't know where the Seller got that number. At least no Red Ryder??

Model: 400 rotary Red Clip 1972-73
Model: 404 rotary Black Clip 1974-76

Nothing between them I can find.

Marv, that gun looks to be a 1946 No. 111 Model 40 Red Ryder, with fixed rear sight and an iron lever. At least that's my best guess.

MarMar: I think you are spot on. Like I said before, 403 is no Red Ryder I have ever heard of.

The Red Ryder was sold.  I messaged the seller two times and asked him to verify the model number. He responded both times with a very emphatic MODEL 403 !!!!

Sometimes those Factory workers did some strange things. Smile

It's not too easy to make it out, but it is marked "NO. 111 MODEL 40". Where the seller gets '403' from is beyond me.

Yesterday I got a 3rd response from the seller. Said he reconsidered and now says it's a #111 Mod 40. In his first 2 emails he said he used a magnifying glass !!!???? HuH ???
