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.
The example is in excellent condition with nearly 100% of the original finish remaining. The gun shoots well, although these were always a low velocity toy gun. This is the only Daisy BB gun that is not an airgun. By definition it is a catapult gun, slinging the BB with a spring.
The leather holster is a very high quality Bianchi holster and would accommodate any gun of this style and size.
This is a very nice Daisy collectable BB gun.
