  I believe the model 1938 Red Ryder was made between 1972 and 1978 and was nearly identical to the original no. 111 model 40 Red Ryder. I think the shot tubes will inter-change so you should be able to use any from those models and even the model 94 Red Ryders are the same which should make your search easier.

I think the model 111 is the same also. I would try ebay first if no one here has one they want to part with. The older parts are really getting hard to come by.

The only real difference between all the shot tubes with the "Lightnin' Loader" tab on the end cap (other than the narrow 111-40 BB feed chute used in the first few years) is the 111-40 shot tubes are mostly blued. From late '53, the 111-40 Red Ryder, the Model 94 Red Ryder, the No. 1938 Red Ryder, along with some model 111s all have painted shot tubes. They all function the same though.

There are Ligntnin' Loader type shot tubes that are shorter than what's used in the guns mentioned above, like used in the No. 108 Model 39 (blued) and the non Red Ryder model 94 (painted) and a few others- some of which are painted gold or other non Daisy dark blue colors.

The point is, if you need a shot tube, you don't care if it is painted or blued as long as it works. LOL, That is unless you are looking to be accurate for restoration.

You may very well be right, especially if the OP has a beater/can killer! lol

The thing that caught my eye- and why I went into a little detail- is his screen name combined with the post says that he has the 111th. gun made during the first year of No. 1938 Red Ryder Carbine production, and I know if I owned it I would want a tube that was as close to the original as I could find. But he may not care a whit. If it does matter to him, knowing the differences could save him from buying his way into an education on Lightnin' Loader shot tubes- one tube at a time.
