The Buzz Barton final part III

The 3rd and last series of videos on the Buzz Barton model. Haven’t posted much because I didn’t want to interfere with the Buzz series. The Daisy no. 155 has an interesting relationship to the Buzz. You could say the 155 is the same gun as the Buzz no. 195, the King 5536, and the Model 80 Long Rifle.

CaliAir also introduces the public auction of a substantial part of his collection here on PickingADaisy.com and on eBay.

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

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.
