The model 179 was made from 1960 to 1981. It was part of the Daisy “ Spittin’ Image “ series and is a replica of the famous Colt single action revolver featured in every cowboy movie ever filmed. These are not hard shooting guns. By definition it is a catapult gun, slinging the BB with a spring. This one comes with a nice looking leather holster.
The metal retains better than 90% of the original finish. The grips are in very good condition with no cracks, chips, or warping.
It was recently cleaned, lubed, and resealed in our shop. Velocity tested at around 132 fps.
