I am interested in more information and details regarding Daisy Mfg. in Preston during the period of 1959-60's. Any information, pictures, etc. would be appreciated. I am also searching for any Daisy BB Gun with the Preston address imprint. Contact me at bangpla@aol.com. L. LeMaster

Here's a Preston Daisy pistol (Model 177) I've had since a kid. I've forgotten where we bought it, but it may have been Canadian Tire...

Wow-old post...
The pic may not reflect the true color, which is kind of a dark blue-ish grey. Not sure of the US version of this one, but other Preston guns I have seem to be the same as the US ones.
Maybe it was a test batch, or a special color for one specific market...
