Sorry about the pics.....
Here is the stock.....
And the sight system....
It says "Daisy" on the reciever, if that helps.
Any idea what it's worth?
Tango did this with a couple of polls remember???
Please! Not Again!
That is a original 1493 Armalite .50 caliber belt feed MG. It was created by a fella named "Red" Ryder, and people nick named it the "daisy" because it was a accurate enough to shoot the peddles off a Daisey at over 6 miles away, 3 in high seas.
Worth about 20 bucks. Hope this helps.
Post of the day right there.
I concur. Well played, sir.
I call shenanigans!!!
Its OBVIOUSLY a replica and worth no more that $17.50
I have my moments.
I think you're right. It has a Tula arsenal stamp and reads "Daisy-Nyet".
Yes Red Ryder and his MIT engineer L. Beaver are shown testing that .50 Cal.on the 1943 cover of Arms and Man Magazine.
It's actually a original, just by a different manufacturer. Tula Arsenal gained the rights to produce the weapon from Christopher columbus. If you look at the original year it was produced (1493) then you have to know the history behind it. Columbus found the "new World" in 1492. He left behind a small (and only recently declassified) contingent of people, whom later founded Jeminez firearms, on the new world. Using ancient Aztec space technology they produced the "Daisy". Since Columbus was the man in charge, the patent was given to him. Many years later he licensed the patent to Tula Arsenal to help pay for his morgage in Spain, and massive booze/hooker tab.
It's kinda like the 1911 being produced by colt and Ithica during the wars. Same gun, just different maker.
I really would expect you guys to know this on a gun forum.
I had one of those when I was a kid as soon as i got a 22 I chucked the thing off a cliff. Still really arent that bad to shoot. I was a instructor for cub scouts and we had some of them with peep sights in the back it was actally pretty accurate at about 10 yrds
My brother had one...shot his eye out.
Man, someone is on fire tonight!
I had one of those when I was a kid, I didn,t shoot my eye out back then but I did loose my eye later on in life
