Authentic 1/1000 numbered limited edition Replica of the First Red Ryder ever produced with CoA wrapped in a real Retro Box that explains the details behind this gun. Features the Retro red ryder logo. When Fred Harman and Stephen Slesinger had first approached Daisy, they had proposed that Daisy make a pistol featuring the Red Ryder logo. Not having yet made a pistol, Daisy executive Bob Wesley sketched the Red Ryder lariat logo on a carbine and presented it to Slesinger and Harman. A licensing agreement between Daisy and Fred Harman, illustrator of Red Ryder comics, and Stephen Slesinger, Steven Slesingerr Inc. , owner of the Red Ryder property now Red Ryder Enterprises, Inc. Was signed October 6, 1939, just over 80 years ago. The first guns were produced in the spring of 1940. Presented on April 2, 1940, to Fred Harman, by Daisy execs Cass Hough and Robert O. As a “Tribute” 1,000 replica guns were produced with each stock laser-engraved with the same words which appeared on the first presentation gun: “ONE ONLY”, “LIMITED EDITION”, “CERTIFIED” and the signatures of Hough and Wesley. There was also a gold star affixed to the first gun and we have replicated that also. The frame is a standard model 1938, with domestic wood and the gun is assembled and packaged in Daisy’s Rogers, Arkansas plant. Each gun’s forearm has a unique number from 1 -1000 You will receive one ranging from 302-937 The forearm band is copper plated with a natural patina. The thong is 16 long and knotted at the ends. The gun is packaged in a bubble wrap sleeve inside a custom red and black carton which tells the story of the first gun and of this Tribute Gun! Enclosed with each gun is a fact sheet which includes photos of the first gun and details its provenance. A 7″ X 5″ Certificate of Authenticity is also included stating that this gun is one of only 1,000 produced. The package is slipped into a single shipper box with the issue number on the end of the shipper. Any questions in that area please ask before purchasing.
