Globe 1902 model 

With thanks to D T Fletcher for the heads up on this BB gun.

The Ebay seller said it was a "Vintage Globe Air Rifle "Model 1902" c-1891-1894. Manufactured by J.A. Dubuar Manufacturing Co. of Northville MI circa 1890 - 1908" and added: "This piece retains much of its nickel plating, as seen in the photos. It is in "non-working condition", and seems to be absent of the internals other than the ones seen in the photo. Has rear sight intact, and the metal tube that the bb would travel down is in place. The wooden stock is embossed with the  company name "Globe Model 1902" and only a handful are in existence today, the last one sold for $3,000 a few years back. A true museum piece of American History."



Google shows another gun a bit like this sold at auction. The blurb was: "Item Description: Cal. .180. NSN. Bbl. 18" with leaf spring loader attached to muzzle. Fixed front sight. Peep rear sight. Sheet metal design with nickel finish & wood stock. Stock mounted with 2 badges marked "NEW GLOBE" & "NORTHVILLE MICH." Globe air guns were invented by Merritt F. Stanley, former Markham employee. He began manufacturing air rifles in 1890 until approx. 1908. In 1908 Daisy purchased the patents to eliminate competition. CONDITION: metal surfaces retain approx. 30% nickel finish with remainder presenting a deep patina. Stock has light to moderate handling marks with crack at wrist that does not go through to the other side. Good compression. (02-8262/ZAL). $750-1250."
