Daisy No. 107 Model 36 Buck Jones Special is trombone action, 500 shot, BB gun. They were manufactured between 1934 and 1942. This one is a first variant and has a spinning needle on the compass. It also features a sundial with a hole for inserting a stick or toothpick. Marked Plymouth Michigan.
This was Daisy’s 2nd Hollywood star sponsored air rifle. Contrary to popular belief, the Buck Jones Special was the only Daisy air rifle to feature a compass in the stock. Vintage Red Ryder’s did not have one (as was in “A Christmas Story”).
The metal has a lot of patina, and about 50% of the original finish. The wood stock has a little wear, but is pretty good for the age. The needle fell off the compass, but is still inside the casing.
This one’s been cleaned, lubed, and resealed in our shop. Velocity was tested at around 210 fps.
