As it turns out, there are quite a few other Cap Guns from companies that never quite made it to the forefront. Some of the guns weren't any good and some were TERRIFIC! But they don't quite fall into a major category, so we present them here.

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!

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

Okay, it's not a Cap Gun, but I found it interesting—especially since I couldn't remember ever seeing the TV show. Do any of you have any information on this show or any Cap Guns?

Johnny Eagle Red River by Topper
Over 11" of a very finely designed revolving cylinder toy gun, this was made by the Topper Corporation, who also made toy rifles of different kinds as well as a 1911 style semiauto. Topper was located in Elizabeth, New Jersey and seemed to survive on other companies' good ideas and sometimes go them one better. It was positively a huge toy corporation.

Here is a rare and unusual Roy Rogers Cap Gun! Balantyne. Never heard of them. Maybe you have? Anyway, this gun is pretty rare and in nice shape. Very unusual in every way.

Reno 2 (Unknown Origin)
On this Cap Gun, I don't know enough about it to do any photo-editing. It might be so rare that to brush it up a little would detract from its rarity.

How's this for an unusual way to start the Others Page? In Doug's own words, "A rare unique & unusual vintage toy machine gun. I'm guessing from the "DOUGH BOY" name that this toy is from the 1920's. It was manufactured by the "Pittsburgh Lamp & Brass & Glass Co." Made from cast iron with "PGH LAMP BRASS & GLASS CO" embossed into the receiver & handle along with "MADE IN USA" and on the opposite side is embossed :DOUGH BOY." This toy measures 22-1/2 inches long from the barrel tip to the back of cast iron handle and is 30 inches tall from tripod base to the top of sheet metal magazine. Note the barrel is sheet metal. This toy has a unique rapid firing mechanism that is activated with a crank handle that is fixed on the right hand side of gun. Also be sure to note the removable metal magazine that would hold numerous wooden play bullets. Gun is mounted on a tripod base & will swivel up & down & in a 360 degree circle. It makes a loud firing sound with each crank of the handle.

Shootin Arn (Unknown Origin)
This "Shootin Arn" is one that even Chuck can't identify. It was a gift from a friend. It is designed to shoot some sort of projectile. The spring on the ejector rod is strong enough to push a small marble or something through the barrel when you pull the trigger. If you recognize it, then holler.

Here's an offering I just couldn't pass up. This commemorative replica revolver is of the very same type used by Wild Bill Hickok. This is very nice display piece for its age, about 30 years. It is constructed of of the same number of precision components just like the real gun. As you can see from the photos, this a beautiful example of the Navy Colt carried by Mr. Hickok. This gun is one of the more rare Commemorative revolvers released by the Franklin Mint.
