Where to post this. It does not fit in any catagory. My small accumulation of
Daisy No. 118 BB pistols. Just one pic but I like the old stuff. These pressed steel
slide action repeaters were made from 1937 to 1940. A sub-caliber intended for indoor target shooting.
A variation, the 1946 to 1952 has the adjustable rear sight.
The ammo is no longer produced but #6 steel or hardened lead shot can be used.
I just think these are neat. Great waste bucket, hand-eye coordination, shooters.
Anybody remember these or have one?

How close is accurate? Sub quarter size at five ft' is good. These were meant to be shot at ten ft. or less.
They are spring charged with an oil washer air seal. Even the original shot
was not perfect. Fun nevertheless. Always wear eye protection!

Now I know where the ruger 22 auto got it's inspiration. :mrgreen:
More likely these were derived from the earlier Colt design.
