Very interesting, i never knew of them
they only made them from 1968 to 1969 when they had to stop making them because daisy was not legally able to manufacture firearms soo they decided to quit instead of getting into the market.

Questions: What are those brass things in the gun case? also Is that an ejection port a few inches behind the rear site; i thought the point of caseless ammo was to avoid wasting power ejecting a shell?

I also wonder why Daisy didn't come back out with this in the 80's when they did a more traditional .22 rifle. Very cool collectors item.

Unique for sure, congrats on that...what a collector

Doesn't look expensive to shoot either
thanks
yea i really lucked up with this one

the only problem with shooting it is that they don't make the 22v/l rounds anymore

the brass things are wall mounts soo you can put it on display.
the port is for loading the round after it is fired there is nothing left to eject.
ill try to get some pics of the ammo when i can. It looks like a pellet with a eraser fused to it.

So any ammo will be old stock only? I'm sure there are some crafty ammunition guys out there that could make those somehow.

There weren't enough of them made to make it profitable to make ammo. I've never read a range report which makes me believe most folks don't shoot them for ammo reasons.

daisy heddon 22 LR VL

Can anyone give me an idea what a daisy heddon 22 LR VL is worth. After my uncle died my aunt found in a case a Daisy-Heddon 22LR -VL special presentation model. The serial # is 3010725 and has 2 boxes of the caseless ammo in it.

She is interested in selling it and asked me to check into it.

Thanks.

there are 2 types of presentation models one goes for about 275 and the other goes for 325
if it has the buyers name engraved on it then its the 325 version
there is also a little more value added if you have a bunch of ammo
