Daisy SoftAir Model 13

.25cal (6mm) Detailed Metal/Plastic Replica
of an Uzi Machine Gun

Includes 10 plastic "bullets" or "cartridges"
1 metal magazine
1 cloth strap





































I don't even know why I'm selling this as it cannot be replaced.  I need the room so it has to go.

This pistol dates back to the days before the red-tipped toy pistols.


This is as close as you can get to a replica of an Uzi machine gun.

The semi-auto action is spring-loaded, no compressed air or gas to fool with.

These pieces are extremely hard to find.  Spare parts are not available.

The auction includes 10 plastic "bullets" or "cartridges" which each contain a 6mm pellet and are ejected from the piece as it is fired, just like a real firearm.

Also included is the original metal (not plastic) magazine.

This Uzi replica is extremely detailed and constructed from metal and plastic parts. 

As you can see from the photos the piece is in mint condition.  It was only shot a couple of times when first purchased in the mid 80's, then stored away until now.

Here are the instructions for this piece.  These instructions are not easily found on the internet and Daisy does not provide them on their website or by any other means.


From http://users.rcn.com/ed.ma.ultranet/toyguns.html (Note: the site is down for some reason)

One very interesting line of Daisy " BB" guns was their very short-lived "Softair" series, produced briefly in 1986-1987. 
Daisy apparently noticed that in Japan, there were several companies producing very realistic replicas of real guns (the Japanese are rarely permitted to own real guns, and these lifesize replicas which shoot BBs are a way of satisfying public demand to handle "guns").
The generic name for these guns is Airsoft, so Daisy decided to call their line of Japanese imports Softair!


Daisy offered a line of pistols:
- Softair Model 4: the Colt Python .44
- Softair Model 8: the Luger 9mm
- Softair Model 9: the Beretta M-92 U.S. Army sidearm
- Softair Model 38: the Walther P-38
- Softair Model 45: the Colt .45 Auto U.S. Army sidearm
- Softair Model 57: .357 Magnum revolver
- Softair Model 59: Smith and Wesson Model 59 automatic

The pistols all came packaged in a clear plastic shell, designed to hang on dealer racks.

The Maruzen Company of Japan manufactured the guns for Daisy (except for the Model 15 MP-5K, which was made by FalconToy Corp).
The guns are typically marked with "ASGK" - Air Soft Gun Kumiai - a sort of Air Soft Gun Manufacturers' Association that set the performance safety standards for stock unmodified airsoft guns, much like what the Underwriters' Lab (UL) does for many common products.  
By the mid-90s, ASGK was replaced by JASG which was basically the same thing with a different name.


Daisy Manufacturing was one of the first to recognize this potential market. The company introduced its paramilitary line of imported Softair guns in 1986.
Softair guns are working replicas, down to the point of expelling spent shells and firing plastic pellets. They retail for approximately $60.

"So accurate in detail you'll swear it's the real thing!...a 'must have' for paramilitary enthusiasts of all ages," reads the catalog description for a replica of the UZI assault pistol.

Copy for a replica of the KG9-SP (predecessor of the TEC-9) boasts that it's "an authentic reproduction of the American-made semiautomatic defense weapon used by anticommunist guerrillas in Angola." A replica of a Heckler & Koch weapon is described as being "without a doubt the most exciting paramilitary airgun on the market today! Styled after the semiautomatic firearm carried by the German police and made famous in the motion picture, 'Rambo: First Blood, Part II,' the Model 15 has the look and feel of the real thing."


All the guns were single shot, and shot a low-power white plastic 6mm (1/4 inch) plastic ball "BB". The machine guns all have real 20-30 shot magazines, and plastic brass-colored bullets which accept a "BB" pushed into the tip. A spring-powered "firing pin" pushes the "BB" out of the barrel.

All of the Softair guns have become difficult to locate.

Daisy is not providing any response to inquiries about the history of this product line, and they have no replacement parts except for white BBs which can be obtained from any softair/airsoft source.
