In 1940 Daisy introduced what would become a legendary air rifle—the Red Ryder. It had everything America's youth were looking for—wood stock and forearm, sturdy lever-action, a saddle ring and a real leather thong. It was only natural that young boys (and many young girls) depended on their Red Ryders (and their imaginations) to take on bank robbers, cattle rustlers and ducks on the wing.
This most-famous BB Gun celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2020 with a special edition featuring elegant engraving on the forearm and a commemorative medallion in the stock, in addition to all of the features that made this gun the all-time No. 1 American Christmas present.
The Daisy Model 1938 Red Ryder has remained mostly unchanged during these 80 years—a few cosmetic changes, a couple of internal improvements and a tiny bit of tinkering for performance—but most would be hard pressed to see the changes. And, down deep, America’s youth haven’t changed all that much, either. More youth take their first shots with a Daisy than with any other BB gun. Riding the range with this trusty carbine at their side may not fill youngsters dreams anymore, but no one can deny the thrill of toppling a pop can the first time with his or her very own Daisy Red Ryder. daisy.com.
