The Colt Special was an inexpensive ($ .98) 50 shot repeater that was introduced in 1957. This is one of the smaller guns, but still had the nice grips. Some were made in chrome and there were a few that were blued. They even came with wooden grips! Sometimes I think whomever was putting the guns together or selling them got bored and started something different—like blueing the guns, etc. Surprisingly enough, this is the same year that the famous Stallion 45 MK-II was introduced. And there sure is a lot of difference in value between the two guns. However, when you find one of these that is in pristine shape, it still isn't cheap.

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:

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

Personally I can never tell what's the difference between a blued version and a black version. But here's one with the white grips from our friend Chuck Quinn.


Here we have the gate up so that you can see where the roll caps go.

Men's 5-Year Employment Tie-Clasp
This tie clasp is so rare that I haven't ever even seen one. I didn't know that it existed for sure until I saw this example.

A full dozen in the box like this is about as scarce as hen's teeth. I would love to own a set like this!
