BCM was an English company that many people (including me!) have gotten confused with Lone Star. But they were a separate company and did make some really fine Cap Guns. BCM Co. was registered as the Outlaw Co., thus the Outlaw series of guns.

Here is a short excerpt from a personal letter received by Steve Arlin on the subject.

The BCM Co (Derby) Ltd was registered as a company on 04 - 12 - 1948 it was Private Limited with share capital and Registered No. 00461956. The company started trading as Aluminium Die casters in a small run - down factory in Drewry Lane, Derby. The Factory was in a large yard surrounded by about 16 large lock - up garages which eventually became the warehouses, the factory itself had previously been owned by the Derby Alabaster and Spar company. BCM was the surname initials of the three founder owner/directors. Richard Brown, Harry Duncan Campbell and H. Stanley Munton. In 1963 Mr. Brown decided to part company with his fellow directors leaving them as equal partners. Mr. Munton left a few years later leaving Mr. Campbell in sole ownership. In 1975, BCM was taken over by a company called Morris Vulcan from Solihull in the West Midlands. They were known for roller skates and skate boards although BCM ceased trading in 1986 because the fall in demand for guns was so great and work was transferred to the Morris Vulcan Group's Pershore factory. Here they carried on trading until they closed their facility in the West Midlands in 1989. On 30. 09. 86 the B C M Co. (DERBY) LTD Trading Address Goodsmoor Road, Sunnyhill, Derby, DE23 7NJ. was struck off the register under 652 of the Companies Act 1985 and dissolved by notice in the London Gazette.

PLEASE HELP!
(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. Originally we had quite a few who helped us each month by contributing a little to our cause of maintaining this website. Not so much anymore. It's a trickle now.

ONE WAY TO CONTRIBUTE IS ALSO TO PURCHASE THE GLASS CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENTS AS IN THE AD JUST ABOVE HERE!
www.NicholsCapGuns.com/glassware.htm


See how many people have helped us one way or the other over 12+ years at:
http://www.NicholsCapGuns.com/contributors.htm

Hundreds of wonderful people for over 12 years!

Also...The Internet wants a "mobile-friendly" website and we don't know how to convert a 7,000+ page custom website over to a format where you can always read it on a smartphone or tablet. Even Google said that this is the largest "Static" website on the entire internet. But it's only a matter of time before we lose it all to "progress." I'm old, have only Windows 7 and my software won't load on a higher operating system, and I don't know how to keep up with these changes and am worried about losing it all. If you're an expert, please help by suggesting a sensible technological upgrade! No two pages are completely alike on this website. If I could redo 10 pages a day, it would take about 2 years!

I would ask those who are enjoying this site to PLEASE contribute at least a little to helping us keep it going. 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.

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



The Snub Nose Agent with FBI Jr. Holster
Here is an English version of what the American FBI should be carrying I guess.

Photos are thanks to Rich Hall.

Space Outlaw Atomic Space-Gun
This is one of the rarest offering for BCM that we are showing. The space craze took over starting in about 1958 and never completely let up. This is part of the BCM "Outlaw" series, but I don't know why.

Here are a couple of Derringers made by BCM and Crescent. The one on the top is a "Pepperbox." The one on the bottom actually has a small cylinder and is called the "Cloverleaf." The Pepperbox is made by BCM, but the Cloverleaf is by Crescent.


You can barely read it, but it says, (in script) "Pepperbox."


Here is the front of the Pepperbox, showing that it has four barrels.

All of the above photos thanks to Steve Arlin.

BCM Gold Buntline Special
Some people would advise, "Always go for the gold." Steve does it a lot! And here is the BCM Gold Buntline Special. Quite a bit different from the Actoy/Esquire Buntline Special. And more valuable.

Photos thanks to Steve Arlin.

This 10-inch BCM Cap Gun is a Roy Rogers gun and is similar to the Hubley Cowboy. It features a magnificent Chief's Head Grip and also resembles the Leslie-Henry .44 in its approach to the cylinder area.

This is the same gun as above, but is the more rare gold plated version.

And the famous BCM Buntline Special in Black. TWO no less!

Here's another version of BCM Buntline Specials in chrome and red grips.

BCM Frontier .45
This Cap Gun is, for all practical purposes, the same gun as the Roy Rogers above. It is just labeled, "Frontier."

I wouldn't have believed it, but there is another version of the Cheyenne Cap Gun from BCM. And why did they put "Outlaw" on the box? On our TV show he was one of the good guys.

Photos thanks to Chuck Quinn.



BCM Outlaw Mustang and Box
Nice Cap Gun in mint condition from England.

From the collection of Chuck Quinn



BCM Cadet
I don't know if this Cap Gun is very rare. It must be, for it is coming in at 6-1/2 years from the inception of this website.

Photos are thanks to Chuck Quinn.

Here's a BCM Patrol Cap Gun from England.

This is a presentation set of miniatures from the BCM Company (Derby) Ltd. of England. The two on the right are absolute knock-offs of the Nichols Dyna-Mite and the Nichols Buccaneer. Not much in the way of integrity, huh? Anyway, this is an interesting set. It even includes BP (British Petroleum) gun oil. The box kind of reminds me of the Hubley Colt 45 box.

Daisy 45 by BCM of England
I didn't know that Daisy made a Colt 45, but if it's made, then the chances are always good that Chuck Quinn would have it. It looks suspiciously like the Leslie-Henry .44 series. They must have had a surplus of little rubies at the factory, for every gun has 14 in it. Please notice the Indian Brave on the grip. I haven't seen another like it. Two feathers. After reading up a little more on the BCM company of England, I found this Cap Gun was made by them for Daisy. Daisy distributed a lot of guns with their name on them, but made by other companies. I have this Cap Gun featured on the Others Page as well with some nice photos!

Photos thanks to Chuck Quinn.

Awesome BCM Sixgun
This Cap Gun is almost like a cross between the standard Leslie-Henry .44 and a Nichols Stallion 45 in many ways. But the grips? The grips are purely their own. With a few extra jewels like the Lone Star Range Rider MK-II.

This Cap Gun is exactly like the Daisy 45 (also by BCM), except for the name. The funny thing is that if you're going to be a serious collector, you must have them both! (sorry!)

Here's the same BCM Outlaw Six Gun, but in Gold! With a BOX!!!

B.C.M. Company (Derby) LTD Outlaw Kid in Gold
Here's another offering from the BCM Company in England. This one is relatively simple, but pretty rare.

The Apache, long thought to be by Lone Star is actually by BCM. The Daisy 38 is also by them and they both pretty much look alike. The Rebel...well, I'm not so sure.
Photo contribution by Belinda Quan.



In addition to another clone of the Spit-Fire (This one is called "Hip Gun."), we have two different versions of the BCM Apache here.

This is one fantastic BCM Apache set. Fred asked me what was in the lower left-hand corner and I suggested it might have been some caps. Any takers?
