This is the Daisy "No. 111" "Model 40" Red Ryder Carbine BB Gun. This likely dates to the 1930s or '40s. This has a very early patent number-1062855- with copper finished stock and barrel clips, which I believe is a very early Model of this very popular Rifle of the Youth of America. This seems to work just fine, though there is some 'mushiness' to the blast-in other words the seals need replacing. The gun is 36 in. long, and has moderate wear-overall light corrosion to the blackened metal surfaces, some moderate finish loss on the stock, as well as overall moderate handling wear. There is some difference between a couple of the nuts holding this together-one is likely not original- and two screws seem to be missing their nuts, though this gun is solid.
Incidentally, I am an experienced eSeller on the Bay with over 9K positive feedbacks and occasionally find Antique or Military Weaponry which I sell on this site. Please feel free to bid with confidence. as I am in this for the long haul and stand behind my products 100%.
