Actually, I have one and don't think it looks all that bad. Fun to shoot too. Perfect for what it was designed for.

I had one back in 1964. Wish I still did. I was just a kid and glad to have it.

It was of similar quality. Lots of plastic and wood that did not match.
I got my son one of those...he lost the rear sight and has NEVER been able to replace it...

very odd rifle...he still has it, though, he never shoots it.

lead, follow, or get out of the way!

One day, back in the 60s or 70s, I was visiting at my brother's house, when my nephew came to me to show me the new rifle he had just bought.

It was one of those Daisy Legacy rifles.. What is an uncle to do? What could I say ?

Well; I rather switched the subject saying, "how does it shoot"? We immediately went out back to test it...and as I recall, it shot no better than it looked..

Wish I had known something about firearms back when I bought my Legacy when they came back out in the 80's. The thing was a tack driver, but I could never get it to extract a spent shell. Returned it and got a Marlin 881 that I still have to this day.

Pretty sure if I still had the Daisy that I could get it working just fine with some parts tuning.

Still living under the curse, but one of these days I will shed this body, be clothed with an immortal one, and everything will be good.

Took the Knocabout out today. Still much fun to shoot. Not a tac-driver, but all on the paper at 25 yards.

Iíll probably save my money and instead of buying several cheep guns Iíll just buy better quality and less quantity.
