Posted on the American Vintage Airguns forum by 'scepticdeath'. He said: "In 1916, Daisy executives bought a controlling interest in Markham Air Rifle Company. During the Great Depression, King Air Rifle Company suffered huge losses, while Daisy experienced a thirty percent reduction in sales. In 1931, the King plant was closed and from then on, all King guns were manufactured at the Daisy plant., Although King guns had always been as good as Daisy's, most boys preferred to own a Daisy. The Red Ryder had not yet come into design until 1938."
