Here's some info on wide frame Daisys made for instinct shooting. I originally posted this at The High Road forum. The most common model was the 95 but the 99 was also used.

The first gun is the first or possibly second iteration of the Daisy used for the Quick Kill program. There was also a version based on a Daisy mounted in an M14 stock. But the most common was built on the "wide frame" model 95 Daisy.



One of the civilian versions was called the "Quick Skill". They were based on the 95 and 99, but the 95 was more common. As the photos show, these sight-less 95s had the furniture like the model 96 and they looked more like a 96 than anything. Makes me wonder why they didn't just use the 96 to begin with.



This is built on a 99:

There was also another instinct shooting Daisy, this one was built on an early model 99. It was branded/ endorsed by Lucky McDaniel. Came with a BB shot tube (gravity fed, not spring loaded) and a cork ball barrel.

This one was a later model 99, it uses the stamped steel trigger instead of the modular model 99 trigger we have come to expect to see on a 99.

Another Lucky model 99, this one in bronze. Again, gravity fed:

As Cobalt357 pointed out, there are lots of variations.  I have a gravity feed 99 "bottle cap", with the JC sticker on the stock.  Not sure if Daisy used up some old stamped guns for the new JC program in '59-60 while the litigation over the gravity feed was under way and did not offer them for retail sale?

A few model 99 stock examples. There were also monte carlo style stocks used without the inletting for a medallion like shown at the bottom.

During the Heddon/Victor era, a lot of changes were afoot. This is a model 99 Champion made about May 1976. It uses a 'transitional' shot tube that bridged the early style shot tube to the one we use today. The modern model 25 spring loaded shot tube we use today is one instance where newer is definitely better. 

Unfortunately, the model 99B uses the same non removable gravity feed shot tube as the model 1938B Red Ryder. It would have been better had they opted to use the spring loaded shot tube.

This model 99 was made during the Heddon/Victor Comptometer era (stamped Sept. 1975). One giveaway is the sticker on the lever flange. Guns having the sticker typically were made in the early to mid-'70s. Even when the sticker is missing, often the adhesive will remain as a witness mark of the sticker. The receiver stamping isn't easy to read, but it says "Division VICTOR COMPTOMETER CORPORATION".

Folks seem to have trouble using the forum's photo attachment feature. I use imjur as a "host" then copy/paste the photo link from there. Other photo hosting sites work similarly. There's also a thread about posting photos, click here: Posting Photos

SERVICE MANUAL https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/grantthekiwisairgunforum/dave-albert-daisy-resource-t3831-s30.html#p9495

The first recorded stamping of a Reg. No. on a 99 is M135899 on 4/20/1959.  Since the 99 was first made in 1959 and all guns made after 1952 had Reg. No.s, those guns stamped on 4/20/1959 were the first ones made.

REG NO. M393831:

I hope to see more people respond, to get a firm outline of the Model 99 issues.
