The owner is checking to see if anyone at the Museum or at Daisy knows if it was a production gun. Since no one here has seen one I suspect it was perhaps a special one made on the line or by someone later. It sure looks original though. I would like to have had it. It was at a local auction and the new owner wanted it more than I did.

You can just make out the Ro in Rogers in the picture of the registration number.

Daisy was still in Plymouth in 57 and getting ready to move to Rogers so this might be a 67.  I heard about the box car guns that were made in both locations during the move but don't know much about it.

    With the rear sight being above the trigger and the layout of the stamping of the numbers on the barrel it looks like a production of Dec. 1957.  I have a 1961 model 25 and the sight is forward above the take down screw and my numbers are laid out just like this gun.  In the early 60's I believe Rogers moved the sight forward nearer to the take down screw.  Anybody else see this on their 25's.

Well I'll be! Them graphics look cool. It may be a custom silk screen job......hard to tell. I like it though.
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

Hope these show up.
No graphics on the left side, only the right.
Manufacture date is around September 1958.

It is not the newer Monte Carlo stock so must be earlier.

If that gun was made post 1972, the reg. # places it's manufacture date as Dec. of 1977. If it is a 25 made in 1977 it would have a Monte Carlo style stock. 
If it was made before 1972 the reg. # is not much of a help to regular Joes, like me. Mr. Garber could tell you the day it came off the line.Tongue
