Mark, Thanks for the pics... those seamed tubes look like crap!!  They do not even look round inside!
It is a shame...

I suppose the seamed shot tubes could be NOS from circa 2006. Or Daisy could have made the decision to use cheaper tubing in current production guns, maybe to help being able to sell at a profit to Walmart, who are blowing 'Ryders out the door at $25 a pop as fast as they come in. How using metal levers fits into this equation is beyond me. Whatever the reason for these lesser quality shot tubes, I agree it's a shame!

All this talk about Red Ryder shot tubes has made me reconsider my opinions.   Powerful springs, metal levers, extended LOP, custom stocks, etc.
I, as much as anyone love the mods, but at the end of the day a RR is still a plinking gun.   I hate to see quality take a step down.   On the other hand, it is hard to turn a plinking gun into a target rifle, smooth shot tube or not.   

So, I leave a heavy sigh. And I'll go put some lock washers on my Chevy and call it a Cadillac. Lol!

I agree, the rolled tubes are bad, you should put a bb in each one and a light at the end of the tunnel and see how much clearance there is.  Maybe check in a few locations.  Unless your already seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. LOL
Ride and Have Fun
