I have found in our garage a 1938b Daisy Red Ryder BB gun that is in excellent condition. It is in the box with a Shooting Safety instruction guide. Also attahced is the box of BB"s that came with it. We have hade that gun out of the box and it has the trigger safety, 650 shot repeater, saddle ring and leather tie, that stock and forearm are wood and it has a medallion that says Red Ryder 1038 - 1988, Daist Mfg. Co. There are BB"s in the gun but we do not believe it has ever been fired.Does anyone know a good way to either estimate it"s worthor isit worth the time?

If the medallion on the stock has the dates 1938-1988 you have the 5oth anniversary mod. as Will said. The Classic also a 1938B has a similiar medallion but only has one date 1938.Ejwills.http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=175197052
Lucky Dog! I have had a Daisys sense the age of 6, But I just started to collect them about a year ago. I love the graphics on the box of the 50th Model! I would shoot one eye out to have one! LoL! Gunbroker.com is a good place to look at Prices. I am saving up to buy my next Daisy, and that is a big one on my list!
Try to hold out for one that is accompanied by a wooden or fiberboard box full of packaged BBs, some came with them, and from what I understand, others did not. Oh, and there is a 50 year warranty on them!

I have a Daisy Model 1938B New in the box with a repro comic book and all the books and safety pamphlet. It is apparently a commemorative edition because it has a walnut stock, a medallion (copper) on the right side of the stock and the Red Ryder logo on the left side. It has the leather strap and a safety and has never been fired. The box is in perfect condition and as new. There is one strange thing that I don"t understand though, the box is stapled and apparently as it was shipped, but the printed side is inside and bright and perfect but what you see as it is is the brown cardboard side with a label that describes the gun and says it includes a free red ryder comic book inside. Does anyone know what I have here and what it should be worth. The serial number is 89196521 and it is BRAND NEW. Thank in advance for any information as to its value.
