Is It A Buck Part 2

CaliAir uncovers the mystery… is it an original Buck or a Daisy no.102? This gun has been revealed as the no. 102 from 1936 and not the original lever action Buck which thus far remains an enigma. There was a Jr. Buck pump action from the 30’s and perhaps a lever action from the era as well. However I have not seen one in photos nor in real life. If you have any clues or answers leave them in the comments.

Could This Be The Original Buck 105!!!???

(YouTube is behaving funky and isn’t showing a still but it seems to play for me – please let me know if you have trouble viewing this video. Thank -CaliAir)

Hey Everybody It’s your pal CaliAir here and I have something special for you. I have here a vintage Daisy I wanted to share with you before branching out and showing you some non Daisy air rifles. This Daisy has been featured in photos about a year ago and finally we have made a video on the gun.

I thought that this was a 1980 Buck but upon removing the rust and dropping oil down the barrel I discovered it is a vintage Plymouth rifle. And of course it works even with the original seals from 1947.

This Daisy offers a bit of mystery due to the engraving on the receiver being too worn away to make out the actual model. I have considered that it could be a no.102 (1933 or 1947) and I will be doing a comparison video in the near future. The confusion also comes from there being an aluminum lever instead of cast iron which may or may not be a replacement.

Throughout my searches the original Daisy 105 has been pretty elusive and it would be very interesting to discover more about this vintage Plymouth. When was the original Buck 105 produced? Is the Buck 105 just an iteration of the no.102? Have I somehow lucked into an original Buck? Stay tuned for more!

Daisy History

There are a couple of sources online and in print that gloss over the history of Daisy. Details are hard to come by and there are more questions than clear answers. The company began advertising in the late 1800’s if not certainly by the early 1900’s. A good portion of the puzzle can be answered by observing the various ads over the years.

This is not meant to be a concise article on Daisy history. The images included are a look into the rich history of the Daisy bb gun and the bb gun industry as a whole. I will update this page as I get more information ie dates, places, locations.

Model XZ-31 Rocket Pistol

In the past every kid had a Ray Gun. The 1934 Buck Rogers Rocket Pistol retailed for .39 cents! If you cock and shoot it it will fire an invisible rocket ray.

I just can’t turn down a good deal on a ray gun. This was also called the Wilma Gun. Daisy made several ray guns with various non projectile functions.

The prices on these toy pistols are actually skyrocketing.
