Get THE BOOK on the History of Nichols Industries

The Nichols Stallion 32 was the third Stallion in the series. The goals for having several different sizes were (1) making it fit every kid's hand and (2) making it affordable for Santa! (or the kid's allowance, though in those days, most kids didn't have a large allowance)

The Stallion 32 Cap Gun is really a fine looking gun and was also plated with the same "triple chrome" plating that its big brother, the Stallion 45 used.

In my opinion, this gun is the smallest of the Stallion series that really looks like a real "Old West" gun. Reason? The smaller Stallion 22 has a barrel that is a little weird and is flattened. It also only holds 5 bullets and this one holds 6.

After you see the Stallion 32, remember that there are quite a few other Stallions on this website, but the Stallion 300 Saddle Gun is listed under "Rifles."


There are over 8,000 pages (including those from thumbnails—and the site is still growing!) on this website that will give you more information plus BIGGER PHOTOS!

(Thank you for some of you have contributed generously and have helped us stay alive!)
Normally I don't grovel and beg for money, but I am past that stage, as the site is so difficult to keep up.


Believe me, even small contributions help! This is the only site where you are likely to find most of the Cap Guns ever made. The site will always be free to use, but it's not free for me.

(Contritubutions start at only $10, but you can make it more if you can afford it.)
(And we absolute refuse to put you on a mailing list or sell your e-mail address.)
Thank you "History Buffs & Collectors"—Mike Nichols, Texas

It's probably impossible to have a finer 32 than this example (or a better photo) furnished by Ken Thompson. It's actually hard to take photos of cap pistols, as the flash wants to go back into the lens and lighting is difficult. Thanks Ken!

Now isn't this a nice example of a Jacksonville Stallion 32 and box?
It doesn't get much nicer than this one.
Another thanks to Ken Thompson!

This one still uses the same bullets as the 38 and came out in 1955 before the move to Jacksonville. Originally it was pretty inexpensive, but now?

Now one as good as the one pictured above will set you back as much as supper at a very nice restaurant with your family. With a perfect box, you can easily pay 60% more!

Pictured at right: Serious ammo for the serious gunslinger!

Collecting the boxes is more difficult than you might imagine. The cardboard used in them is quite fragile and every little crease or tear lessens the value of the box. I hate to think of how many I probably stepped on!

(Dan Dozier of Toy Tent makes some of the most remarkable reproduction boxes you will ever see. The artwork is fantastic and the quality of the boxes is a full 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. See Toy Tent on our Dealers Page.)

When I first started collecting Nichols Cap Guns I didn't care much for collecting the boxes, but now that I see others collecting them and how scarce and valuable they are, I think I will pay more attention. The same goes for holsters!

How's this for a "FEW" Tophand caps? A whole case!
Photo congratulations to Robert Nichols

Isn't this a positively gorgeous photo of the barrel of a Stallion 32? Wannabe photographers, LEARN FROM THIS MAN. Use your macro setting on your camera to its fullest capability. Hey, we're preserving history folks!

Thanks Joe Chapman for the photo!
When you have found a Stallion 32, here is what to look for (in no particular order): (1) Is it unfired? (2) When you pull the trigger, does the cylinder rotate and the hammer come back?—WHATEVER you do, don't let it actually "fire" as this metal is "Antique Metal" and it might break-thus ruining your day. Put your finger or something less valuable (!) in front of the hammer to make it land softly! (3) Does the loading gate door stay closed when you close it, as this is a friction fit? (4) Are there any bullets? (5) How is the plating on the gun? (6) Are the grips chipped or broken? (7) Can you get it for a song? If you can, then we need your singing coach! (8) Is there a box involved?

If you are just getting a Stallion 32, then good for you. Now, go after the rest of the collection and GOOD HUNTING!

Stallion 32 Carded
I just have to think that these Stallion 32s that were carded—instead of put in boxes—were to conserve on the expense when sales of Cap Guns got really tight. However, I can tell you that when I watched the shrinking of some of the parts in plastic, it was really amazing. Uncle Talley even threw his wallet into the machine once and it wrapped it all in plastic. By the time he finished pulling the little threads of plastic off of the twenty dollar bill in the wallet, one of them had gotten embedded into the bill and that's where the government got the idea to put a strand into our new currency.   :-)

Nichols G-32 Gold Plated Stallion
Though "seeing is believing," this is still a controversial gun. It would seem that this G-32 Stallion is the real thing. I am not positive, but it seems so, so I will put it here.

These photos actually came from a couple of sources and the people are quite reliable. Anyway, it sure is a valuable Cap Gun!!!

Here is another presentation model G-32, but this one comes with a box. Notice it is signed by my Uncle Talley! I should have been smart enough to have him sign all of my stuff too.

Here is a photo of a display rack for the Stallion 45 MK-II AND the Stallion 32. You'd be surprised at how rare these are. This is the first Stallion 32 rack I have seen like this one.

This photo is by Belinda Quan from Chuck Quinn's collection.

Nichols Blued Stallion 32
Here is a rather rare version of the Stallion 32 that was obviously produced in the later years.

Photos thanks to:
Jamie Linford,
one of our advertisers.

Above we find the blued (or black?) Stallion 32 and underneath we see one that is blued, but in the "Notch-It" series.

Photos thanks to: Chuck Quinn.

Here is what you can do if you really would like to customize a Stallion 32. He calls this one the "Doc Holliday" version. Very nice, huh?

Thanks to John Stuart for the nice photo.
