Adult-Sized Daisy Red Ryders? Shoot Your Eye Out Again For A Limited Time

Daisy Outdoor Products has announced a limited run of an adult-sized version of their iconic Red Ryder BB Gun. Yes, you can now shoot your eye out as a grown up!

Daisy fans have been clamoring for a grownup-sized version of the classic for years. The Red Ryder was my first gun, as I imagine it was for many of you. Now we can shoot and teach shooting side by side with the next generation.

The new adult-sized Red Ryder is available in two versions direct from Daisy. The first version is for someone that already owns a regular, kid-sized Red Ryder. This kit comes with the new Model 1938ARR, a Rocket Shot Target Launcher, shooting glasses (Ralphie needed these) and a tube of 350 BBs. This kit is $69.

The second version includes all of the above and a regular, kid-sized Red Ryder. This would be a perfect Christmas gift for a father and his son or a mother and her daughter (girls like to shoot too!) or for a father and his daughter, etc., or for a parent that does not already have the original. This kit is $99

In both of the kits is the Rocket Shot Target Launcher. This reactionary target will make you wish you were a kid again. And that is ok because now there is a Red Ryder BB gun that has an adult size stock! The Rocket Shot Target Launcher has a small plate that when hit with a BB will launch an empty can into the air. This is perfect for multiple shooters and a great way to teach instinctive shooting.

The adult-sized Red Ryders are only available through and at this time both of the kits are marked as sold out. We have reached out to Daisy and will update when we have more information about future availability.

UPDATE: Daisy says more of the adult sized Red Ryders will be available in late November.

    Sounds like someone is suffering from the “SNOWFLAKE SYNDROME”.

    First gun I had. Bought one for my grandson. Every time he comes over to stay he brings it with him to take down the bunnies in our yard that eat my wife’s flowers. 2 years ago he took it to camp with him and I hung up cans from the buck pole. Had a blast. Last year I gave my daughter and grand daughter each their own. This year we had a pop can shoot off. Too much fun.

    Both size Red Rider(s) are available rifle only at Walmart for about 1/3 the price.

    Broke my heart to hear they are made in China now. Isn’t anything off limits from corporate greed anymore.
    Does President Trump know this ? He would Right this Terrible travesty.
    I would buy one if the eye buster was made in the USA again , but not a chance on another piece of shirt from China .

    Or you could get a adult sized stock from Chief AJ. A stock and a big loop aluminum lever is about forty bucks. I “built” me one and love it.Google Chief AJ Red Rifer.

      Can’t find the edit. Meant to type , Chief AJ Red Rider.

    Daisy, listen up—mansize the venerable model 25 with a plastic stock that won’t warp into a fishtail. Beef up the air power. That is something I’d buy to go with my 5 vintage model 25s. And build it in the US.

    So, an adult-sized Red Rider. I’m glad of this, since my original (and first BB Red Rider) is a bit on the hairy side and decidedly long in the tooth (it’s fifty-three years old). It’s also a bit small now, although I remember when it was just the right size. Now, as I enter my “Second Childhood” (not having a worry in the world and not willing to find one) I’ll have a Red Rider that fits my seventy-year-old shoulder.
    Why did Daisy wait to long to do this?

    Where is the “Compass in the Stock”???

    These are the perfect training tool for unrestrained neighborhood dogs to teach them to stay out of the yard. They are fairly accurate, can be cycled for multiple shots and the velocity is low enough not to hurt more than a little sting and the shooter can see the projectile as it is heading downrange to make appropriate sight adjustments.

  • fritz bousigschouer October 5, 2018, 9:15 am

    way to high price for made in china with a say 2 inch longer stock.

  • Bill Laubenthal October 5, 2018, 7:15 am

    Until they’re made in Rodgers Arkansas again under the original 1960s specs, I wouldn’t have one. Pieces of Chinese junk as was the model 25 they came out with several years ago.

    If you took out the lead sentence this would be a good review. I had several different BB guns when young and I still have both eyes. BB guns used to be a right of passage, a training tool for youth to transition to firearms. Just seems to play into the oppositions position and the first sentence just isn’t funny.

      You are missing the movie reference! This is a famous quote from “A Christmas Story” (1983)

      “Ralphie: I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle!

      Mrs. Parker: No, you’ll shoot your eye out.”

      We are much more sensitive now than we should have been in 1983!

        Humor is truly dead. PC culture killed it. BTW one of my favorite lines in a great movie.

    I wished I had I kept mine from my childhood. Nonetheless, the article failed to mention the Red Ryder is made in China now, or at least the ones I’ve spied in the sporting goods stores. Not what they used to be when made in the USA. Too bad, Daisy Red Ryder was an American icon at one time..

    Pellet rifles from Crossman are probably a better deal and could be used to hunt small game as well as target or competition shooting. And of course Sig has lineup of very nice pellet rifles and pistols
