Daisy red rider style rifles anyone had one ?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm considering a Daisy red rider BB rifle for a bit of garden plinking has anyone had one or something similar ? I'm interested as my grand kids have shown an interest but cannot handle my full size rifles.

 

cheers

Not had the red ryder but had other models as such from daisy. Cheap, completely inaccurate, light weight (hollow plastic) but fun all the same. Pretty sure they are under £50 in sportmans gun center atm. Just don't expect them to last that's all. 

As ive always said about bbs in a garden, i was lucky enough to of had no neighbours at the time so I didn't put soft back stops out where I should of and they used to bounce back everywhere.

Got an 1894, which i've had for years. I guess they're fairly similar, if a bit better made, good fun and ideal for what you want i should think.

 I've not tried a Daisy brand air rifle, but have tried the Hatsan Striker 1000x. My mate bought one for his grandson, and we both agree it's excellent.

O.k I came across this on Gun trader within a couple of miles from me, It really appealed to me as it matches the summer dress and pink High heels I like to wear whilst out shooting ( It really does keep people away. I've been having some good plinking fun with it in the garden and the added bonus is it really winds the Mrs up ( Although she did have a go with it) It look like a really cheap version of the Pink Hatsan Escort 20 gauge Mrs Badger had.

DAM - that's cost me £20 - bet my mate that nobody in their right mind would buy that gun - am I right in thinking that it's the Crossman XL LBGT?

I'm always in the right mind but unfortunately my mind is defective !

I've just tried it in the workshop shooting at used 12g shells with BBs it fired the shotgun shell up in the air went straight though the biscuit tin backstop and ended up embeded in the wood of the door ! The .177 air pistol just put a little bit of a dent in the biscuit tin if I missed the shotgun shell ! It's also a nice length sort of carbine.

This gun has been amazing fun and at this point has cost me next to nothing to use, the bbs I brought (Umerex) worked out to be a third of the cost of cheap pellets and I've even put a few back through the gun. Using the iron sights I am able to take shotgun cartridges standing on end at 14 meters and about 70% of them end on at the same distance although I was struggling to see the sights properly as they are both black and the background/target were fairly dark .By using a white paint pen to mark the front sight the sight view seems a lot better but I haven't tried shooting yet. The shortness of the gun makes it a pleasure to handle. The bbs go through both sides of a tin can and embed in the back stop even though I'm only doing 8 pumps of the gun, pumping it each shot does get a bit tedious. If I could find a single stroke or co2 bb youth gun of better quality I would definitely buy it.
