The design of the gun is very much like the earlier Daisy Model H from 1914. This no.11 was produced between 1929-1932 and it replaced the no.11 Model 24 manufactured between 1924-1928. Both models had nickel plated finishes.

The Model 27 was released as a 500 shot and a 1000 shot from 1927-1932. The 1000 shot model came in nickel while the 500 shot came with a blued barrel. The gun pictured is a 500 shot version in good condition.

The Model 27 (1000 Shot) would get re-purposed in 1933 and become the Super Buzz Barton Special. It may have been that the original Buzz being in actuality a common Markham no. 55 needed more sizzle, more zing – so they switched from the no.55 (aka no.195) to the Model 27 (aka no.103) . But by 1936 they resumed the Buzz as a no.195 (aka no.55) up until 1941. It was time to go back to war… WWII.
