Howlsthunder: #red_ryder_commemorative_bb_gun I bought one of these for my best friend for Christmas, only it was not part of a kit and came as the gun alone. Of the Daisy air rifles available this was middle-of-the-road but a great value for the gun-alone price ($34 at Wal-Mart). The simplicity of loading and one-pump load & power action make this a great gun for beginners and younger marksmen. The accuracy wasn't bad for mid-to-close ranges; the inability to do multiple pumps for greater distance make this a poor gun for longer distances but I don't think this gun was meant for experts.

The construction of the gun was a bit less than I was hoping; the gun is lighter than it looks and the metal looks flimsy though it is durable enough. My biggest complaint is that the cocking lever is plastic. With all the movement and force applied to that part one would think it would of been made of metal.

The gun is sized for kids (or very small adults) and can be strange to use as an adult used to full-sized rifles. But the Red Ryder form factor helps this gun go a long way in terms of nostalgia. Apr 2, 09
