“Accurate, Fun, Easy”

Written on: 06/09/2011 by JohnMadern (1 review written)

This Gun Is Great For Starters. It Is Very Accurate Until About 85 Feet. After That It Goes Everywhere. Easy to Kill Small Game Like Rabbits And Squirrels. Very Low Kick, Highly Recommended. I Bought It For About 25 Dollars, And It Quickly Paid For Itself. Oh, And There Is a Vid On Youtube Of Me Killing 2 birds With One Shot. And Please Don't Call Me Humane. They Are Living On My Roof. It's There Fault. I Like How It Is Easy To Pump, Because I Had Several Pump Action Rifles That Were Hard To… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/10/2010

I understand this is a childs begginging airgun, and was many peoples first gun. But it is such a weak airgun - with many aspects more similar to those of a toy gun.
The main knock is that the accuracy and muzzle velocity are just sad. Anything beyond 20 feet and the BB will veer randomly and at 20 yards the BB will hit a foot below where you were aiming. Many Airsoft guns are literally far more powerful and accurate. When I was a kid I once shot a dove from 10-15 yards, the dove did not even… Read Full Review

This is a adult review for the red rider. The red is a fun little plinker east to shoot fun to handle and fair acuurate out to 25 ft. vel- for the are really 240 or less not the 350 as on the box.

Written on: 05/08/2009 by Shakker (2 reviews written)

I think you people must not use it often to think it's bad. You have to remember this daisy red ryder gun is from 1938. In my opinion, Its a great gun. I got one when I was 10, And played with it for a long time. I gave my friend lessons on how to shoot, and it was pretty accurate. And you must use lots of force to brake the lever, I still have mine today. It could use a better sight though… Read Full Review

Sorry...very poor review. It's a bb gun...there are no 'accurate' bb guns save the Avanti 499 (a single shot target model). And the plastic cocking lever...you ever look at a Marksman or Crosman bb gun...you're lucky if the barrel is made of metal.

This gun is pretty good for a bb gun all of u say that its weak and not accurate but mine works really well. I kill more birds with that than i do with my .177 cal air rifle. But the air rifle always kills and kills bigger animals.

Written on: 08/05/2008

All in all this is a good first bb gun. This is one of the few classic bb guns that arnt very expensive that isn't made out of mainly plastic. The gun is well built. it can take a beating, it last very long especially if you oil it and just shoot it and don;t throw it around. But even if you don;t take the best care of it it is still a very good gun. The down side of this gun is that if a young child is shooting it they may get discourged because at least for my gun the bb goes about 3 inches… Read Full Review

Any young shooter or wild west enthusiast will be thrilled with the looks and handling of this little bb gun , I also own the pistol peacemaker bb gun which is also great fun but still not as much as the red ryder .
Only wish that Daisy guns were more readily avialable in the uk and they would once again prodce thier m1 carbine replica and the winchester 1894 bb gun again and increase thier stockists in the uk… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/03/2008 by scout4 (7 reviews written)

I bought this modern remake of the old red rider classic bb gun for my youngest daughter. It is her first experience with a gun, so I wanted it to be a good one. And it very much has been with this little daisy red ryder bb gun. My daughter never shot a gun but she took to shooting this little red rider bb gun like an expert. I made up a target and set it about 10 yards away, with a good backstop. Then started with her first shooting lesson. After a few shots and elevating the rear sight a… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/01/2008 by bobtodrick (1 review written)

I don't get some of the low scores the Red Ryder has received.
Most of them go something like this...these are actual comments:
"accuracy drops off after 50 feet"
"won't take small game"
"works flawlessly but you can see the BB in flight"

For cryin' out loud!! It is an entry level BB gun meant for 10 year olds. It is made to be as safe as possible for a youngster to learn on.
If you want more, blow the wad (gee...what, another $30) to get a Daisy 5880.
Geeezzzz… Read Full Review

You are so right! A Ford Focus doesn't drive like a Mercedes, but it's a fine car for what it is. Red Ryder is a lot of fun and shoots very well for the cost.

Written on: 09/01/2008 by michaeljw10 (1 review written)

This is a gun supposed to used by 9-11 year olds due to its lack of power. And since its lacking power the bbs won't be accurate past 10 yards. But it has a nice wood stock and holds around 600 rounds . It's great for entertaining your child if hes bored. This is a great starter gun but I wouldn't recommend it if you need accuracy (As it will get 2 inch groups at 10 yards) or plan to hunt with it... All in all a great starter gun that can provide a child with hours of fun… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/10/2007 by ajvenom (18 reviews written)

Typical youth BB gun...shoots straight but with low power raised rear elevation to the max at 10 meters. 1 to 2 inch groupings at 10 meters. Fun for shooting soda cans and learning how to use an iron sight.

Only bought because it was on sale....would not pay more than 25.00 dollars for it.

Rankings:

For lowest price: Daisy Buck 105, Mendoza 650(CM-BB scout Model) and Daisy red Ryder.

For best materials and finish used: Medoza650(CM-BB scout Model), Buck 105 and Red Ryder.

For accuracy… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/06/2007 by pelletgunhunter (6 reviews written)

I got this gun 3 years ago and have passed it on to my 9 year old brother it was a fun gun but my only problem was inaccuracy. Then i was 11 I tried hunting with it but then i didn't know that 350 fps couldn't kill much but looking back i couldn't expect it to be to accurate because obviously it is a bb gun It would be like expecting one of those guns that shoot bb's and pellets (which i would never buy) to be accurate! Overall a good amateur gun… Read Full Review
