This is a Daisey Heddon Model 572 Field Master Rogers AK USA Victor Div Comptometer Corp ca. 1967-73 Externally in excellent shape but like many of this model the gear mechanism has failed. It looks like a pin and main gear is missing inside the pump forearm. Still has sticker on the stock. USA bidders only. The model 26/572 BB gun looks just like the Remington 572 Fieldmaster Practically nobody knows about the second Spittin' Image gun from Daisy. In 1964, they brought out a copy of Remington's 572 Fieldmaster pump .22. Daisy did themselves proud with what they first called the model 26 pump BB gun and, after a four-year reflection, the model 572. Both designations had a four-year run. Daisy styled the gun after the standard model Remington 572, which has thin crosscuts around the beavertail pump handle. They also designed a fascinating two-way pump mechanism that requires effort on the pump handle in both directions. It accomplishes the following: ° Greater ease of cocking ° More powerful mainspring ° Realistic looks! How the gun works Push the pump handle forward, then bring it back to complete the cocking procedure. It doesn't exactly cut the effort in half , but it makes this gun somewhat easier to cock than Daisy's famous model 25 pump BB gun. The BBs are poured into the same tube that would hold rimfire cartridges in the Remington. It features a clever captive spring that keeps the BBs from rattling around and prevents them from getting lost. I'm amazed that Daisy engineers put so much thought and effort into an inexpensive BB gun (it sold for $21.95 in 1970). It certainly stands as a monument to those who were involved in bringing it to market. It's strange that such an unknown BB gun is also one of the most powerful ever made, but that's the case! The way the gun cocked in both directions made it easier to install a stronger mainspring, and Daisy designers took full advantage of the opportunity.
