Anyone know what might have been screwed on this 1950ish 111 ?
Just picked it up at a sale and was wondering.  It’s shoots great for being as old as it is .  
Thanks.  Brian

I think Seth Rowland figured it out for me . It probably had the model 300 scope mounted on it . The clamp marks out on the barrel was a good clue to.

That is the stock for a Daisy model 25. The model 25 had a long tang that a screw went into the stock at the end of it. Need more pics to see if it is curved and also if it has the right cocking lever. The 300 scope mounted at the screw at the back of the receiver on the Red Ryder, not way down on the stock.

Since it has the Red Ryder logo on the stock that got ruled out . Here’s an online pick of the setup.

I tried to find mine, but haven't yet. I think they made two different mounting systems. One for the model 25 (which is what you have) and one for the Red Ryder which doesn't have the long tab on the back. My memory isn't what it used to be but (I think) you have a model 25 300 scope mounted on your Red Ryder, which is why someone drilled the hole in the stock. I'm not sure, but I don't remember Daisy requiring any holes to be drilled to mount a scope. Someone may have a better memory than mine.

The scope had been removed by the time i found it the other day at an estate sale for $35 . Having the scope is probably the reason the gun didn’t seem to get much use as solid as the mechanicals are . The crappy plastic forearm is another matter. Think I’m going with a wood replacement.

I have seen those 300 scopes sell for more than the guns. Just like the original bayonets on the (I think it was a Daisy model 40) they sell at a high price. My 300 scope is original but the rubber eyepiece is a replacement replica. The original ones are always gone. The original is a collapsible eyepiece that protects your eye from sunlight AND also keeps young boys from putting their eyes out on the rear of the scope.
