For a limited time only, Daisy is selling an adult sized version of their most popular Red Ryder BB Gun and it looks nearly identical to the kid version!

That’s right. The iconic BB gun was the root of the theme for “A Christmas Story” and was quite possibly the passion of many a young person from the generation the film was set in (the 1940s) through those who grew up watching it (in the 1980s and beyond). It’s now an adult-sized option. Based on the works of author Jean Shepherd, “A Christmas Story” followed the adventures of Ralphie Parker (played by Peter Billingsley) in the beginning of winter in the early 1940s. He spends much of his time running from the neighborhood bully and daydreaming about his perfect Christmas gift, a “Red Ryder air rifle.”

Now, for a limited time only, Daisy Outdoor is releasing an adult-sized version of the classic Red Ryder BB gun, which is noted as being “almost identical to the version many of us had as kids, just bigger.”

The new model is said to be 36.75″ in length and can shoot up to 195 yards. A bb from this beauty will also travel at 350 feet per second!

Available in a two-rifle shooting kit (one for adults and one for kids), this nice little piece of nostalgia goes for $99.99 and can be ordered from Daisy Outdoor directly at the link available here.

According to NRA Shooting Sports USA, “This Red Ryder for adult shooters keeps the same steel smoothbore barrel, lever cocking spring air action, and crossbolt trigger safety as it’s smaller, older brother. The 650-shot capacity remains as well. The weight jumps from 2.2-pounds to 2.95-pounds, and the overall length jumps to 36.75-inches, an increase of 1.35-inches over the original Red Ryder.”
