Can you believe that the “Daisy Red Ryder,” first introduced over 70 years ago, is still being sold, and is a huge favorite of kids today as well? I never owned one while growing up, but I sure wanted one.
Of course, the popularity of everyone’s favorite Christmas movie, “A Christmas Story
,” which featured the famous firearm, has kept the “Daisy Red Ryder” right at the top of many of today’s Christmas wish lists
This 70th anniversary edition is really special. Although the actual rifle is much the same as it has always been, this one has a commemorative medallion in the stock, and a bright silver barrel band. It is primarily best shot from 15-30 feet at targets. You just cock, aim and shoot. It holds 650 BBs, and is very well made for the money.
This is a great beginner’s gun and is perfect for young sharpshooters ages 10 and above. Remember to wear some protective safety glasses
when using the “Daisy Red Ryder,” and never shoot it indoors. You can read more about this fine gun, and buy it here
And be sure and check out this enthusiastic review
of the “Daisy Red Ryder.”
