Anyone see one of these yet?


Anyone know anything about it & if it will actually be available?

Is it made by Daisy under license with Winchester?

Do you think it will be a more modern version of the Daisy 25?

I saw it mentioned here a while ago, but I've not heard anything about it since then. To me it looks like it is a new design that incorporates features from other Daisys from the past and present. I'm basing that on the way it holds a quantity of BBs on board that are able to be loaded into a spring-assisted 12 BB magazine. Closest thing to that loading system I can think of off the top of my head is the Daisy model 74 CO2 repeater, with the sliding door for loading quantities of BBs that's used on  the new Red Ryder/Buck/etc. for loading the main reservoir. It looks like it uses the trombone action similar to the Buck Jones 107, but that's just a guess. The problem with that is the cocking effort isn't helped by any built-in mechanical advantage, so if it were equipped with a hefty spring, it might be hard to cock. With advertising like "The Winchester Air Rifles Model 12 Pump BB Gun makes the perfect first gun for any youth, says Daisy Outdoor Products...", it makes me think it won't have a strong spring, if that matters.

Regardless, it looks cool as heck and I wouldn't mind owning one, even if it was shooting 250 fps. First thing I'd do it take it apart to see what makes it tick!

ETA- I see the specs say 350 fps, but in my opinion their ain't no way it will do it. No more than a new Red Ryder will, also advertised as "up to 350 fps" in some of their ad copy.
