25-Foot-Tall Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun Created for Museum

A 25-foot-tall replica of a Daisy BB Gun now adorns the Daisy Airgun Museum in Rogers, Ark., offering a unique tourism opportunity for families beginning to emerge from pandemic lockdowns.

A size comparison to the actual Daisy BB Gun

What is likely the world’s tallest BB gun is made of aluminum and has 180 lbs. of BBs in the bottom to add weight—that’s about 200,000 BBs. If this replica could actually be loaded to fire, the BBs would be nearly the size of ping-pong balls. Its scale is 8.33:1.

The replica joins the ranks of tourist attractions like the giant baseball bat at the Louisville Slugger museum in Louisville, Ky., or the world’s largest basket in Newark, Ohio. (Or, perhaps more appropriate for exiting the pandemic, the world’s largest toilet paper roll in Branson, Mo.!)

The Daisy Airgun Museum is open for business with some COVID-19 precautions in place. Daisy airguns have been an American icon for more than 80 years. The museum features a chronological history of the guns, including the prototype model originally given to Fred Harman, who designed the iconic cartoon character cowboy after whom the Red Ryder BB gun was named.

The replica was fabricated by Elemoose, a multi-faceted signage fabrication company, from Springfield, Mo., and was completed January 2021.
