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.
