Orin Ribar. In memory of our Daisy historian, generous donor, respected board member and great friend.

If you ever spoke to Orin Ribar, you know what we mean. Orin knew his Daisy history, mostly because he'd lived it and loved it. People who called Daisy's customer service department knew that. People who contacted the Daisy Museum when Orin was curator knew that. He was respected by collectors and those in the industry. Orin loved to share his knowledge and an interesting story. Few people, today, dedicate their entire career (and beyond) to one company. Orin Ribar did. Orin's mother, Annabelle, was working in the service department at Daisy in Plymouth, Michigan, when Orin graduated high school. Orin went to work in the service department on June 23, 1953. It was there that he met Patt Wohn. They married in 1955, and, with their two young daughters, joined other Daisy families who relocated to Rogers, Arkansas, in 1958. When Orin passed on to larger life on July 19, 2021, he was the last remaining Daisy retiree who had made the move from Plymouth to Rogers, Arkansas. Orin and the late Patt Ribar's daughters, Sherri Ribar and Lisa Pierce, each worked in the Daisy plant. Their son, Steven Ribar, worked in the plant and now serves as Art Director for Daisy. Steven is also a member of the Daisy Museum board of directors. Orin retired from Daisy in 1996. He served the Daisy Museum as Curator. A comprehensive tour of the museum by Orin became the script for the museum's audio tour. Orin was a walking encyclopedia of Daisy history, facts, products and folklore. During his years at the Daisy Museum, Orin would often see a gap in the museum's collection and bring a gun from his personal collection in order to better tell the company's story. In a generous gesture, Orin donated these artifacts to the non-profit Daisy Museum. As a testament to his generous willingness to share, and to the importance of his family, many display areas in the museum today bear tags that read, "Donated by the Orin Ribar Family."

The Daisy Airgun Museum, located in downtown Rogers, Arkansas, is a non-profit corporation which preserves and promotes vintage products and artifacts of the historic Daisy company while serving as a national tourism destination for Daisy fans and collectors.

The success of the Museum is dependant on admissions, product sales, donations and memberships.  We invite you to join the “Friends of the Daisy Museum” to help us maintain this wonderful facility for future generations.

Visit the Daisy Hall of Fame

Daisy’s ultimate honor is to induct someone into the Daisy Hall of Fame. Because the Hall of Fame honors individuals who have significantly impacted Daisy’s history, the plaque hangs in the Daisy Museum for visitors to see.

Throughout Daisy’s rich history, there have been many remarkable individuals…employees, retirees, some industry friends, and shooting sports advocates…who have contributed to the company’s success, to youth shooting sports programs and to the communities in which they live.

In the summer of 2010, a Daisy Hall of Fame was created to recognize those people. Inductees have been honored at corporate milestone celebrations and at the Daisy National BB Gun Championship Match. Those who are inducted receive an individual plaque, the recognition of the company and their peers, and their names are added to the Daisy Hall of Fame plaque.

These words, on the plaque, define the qualifications of an inductee:

These outstanding individuals have made a significant contribution to the success of Daisy, its missions and its programs.

They have demonstrated leadership, modeled ethical conduct and exhibited moral character.

We value their enthusiastic involvement with our historic company  and proudly induct them into the  Daisy Hall of Fame.

Orin Ribar


Come take your picture with the World's Largest Daisy BB Gun in Historic Downtown Rogers.  Here are some fun facts about the giant sculpture:
•    It was installed January 20, 2021.
•    It measures 25’ tall.
•    Approximate scale:  8.33:1
•    Sculpture has an aluminum frame.
•    Parts are made of sculpted Styrofoam; coated with epoxy urethane
•    Stock is filled with 180 lbs. of BBs in 20 lb. bags to ensure the sculpture is bottom-heavy.
•    180 lbs. of BBs = approximately 196, 363 BBs.
•    Of course it doesn’t shoot. However, if it did, the ammo would be 1.47” in diameter, 1/10th of an inch smaller than a ping pong ball.

2021 Downtown Rogers Model 25

Each year the Daisy Museum creates artwork, featuring an historic site in downtown Rogers, Arkansas, to be engraved into the stock of the famous Daisy Model 25 pump-action BB gun. This year's artwork features the World's Largest Daisy BB Gun which was erected on January 20, 2021. 

The 25-foot sculpture leans up against the Daisy Museum building in Historic Downtown Rogers, Arkansas.  The larger-than-life Daisy BB Gun is expected to attract families and photo-takers from across the country.  A card, inserted with each gun, tells the sculpture's story. These guns are engraved to order and, when 500 guns have been made or at the end of 2020, whichever comes first, the issue will be closed.

First Daisy Red Ryder Tribute
Limited Edition with Custom Package

First Daisy Red Ryder Tribute - Limited Edition with Custom Package

In 2019, the Daisy Airgun Museum proudly accepted the donation of a very special No. 111, Model 40 Daisy Red Ryder BB gun which was a pre-production gun.  It had been presented on April 2, 1940, to Fred Harman, by Daisy execs Cass Hough and Robert O. Wesley. 
In exchange for the generous donation of this first model presentation gun, the Daisy Airgun Museum committed to produce 1,000 "Tribute" guns, 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.

Our long-term goal is that the annual asset improvement of a growing foundation would, someday, entirely underwrite the Museum's operating expenses.
