New and Improved 60th Anniversary Red Ryder by Restomod

There she is kids, the newest Restomod off the production line. This gun was part of a package deal for stock work and I was really impressed with the quality of the roll stamp on the butt stock logo so I decided to keep it and the factory paint.

Not stripping the metal work and fire blueing it saved a lot of time and effort and the result is quite nice, aside from some issues on the left side of the gun most likely the result of whatever removed the cheezy latigo loop. See below.

Whatever. The unit still has the factory power plant, the factory plastic trigger but it's an older one with out that annoying anti-bear trap mechanism. I did replace the plastic lever with a new production Daisy metal loop and installed a fiber optic front sight.

These work really well and should be a part of every Daisy upgrade you do. Of course keeping the original butt stock doesn't mean you have to leave it stock, so I did some curly maple overlays on the wrist, chucked the original fore end for a new curly maple unit with out a barrel band and Voila!

It should have looked this way when it left the factory. 

That's today's update, if anybody would like to pick this piece up drop a comment and we'll see what can be done about that.
