Get THE BOOK on the History of Nichols Industries







In 1961 Nichols Industries commemorated the American Civil War by introducing the Stallion Model 61, which was a replica of the side arm used by both the North and the South. The "61" for 1861. This was a cap-activated pellet firing 6 shooter.

This Cap Gun has turned out to be one of the most valuable Nichols Cap Guns that there is. Especially the unusual varieties that AREN'T chrome or blue. Nichols made some for Daisy that are very valuable. But again, just finding those pesky 3-piece bullets is going to be an adventure in itself. My cousin probably has a barrel of them!

After you see the Stallion Model 61, remember that there are quite a few other Stallions on this website, but the Stallion 300 Saddle Gun is listed under "Rifles."

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!

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.

THE STALLION MODEL 61'S OF RICH HALL!

THE STALLION MODEL 61'S OF RICH HALL!

Here we can see, side-by-side the different versions of the Model 61. The Nichols versions are on the left and the Daisy versions (still made by Nichols) are on the right. The Nichols versions are expensive enough, but the Daisy versions are even more pricey. I haven't ever even seen one!

All photos by Rich Hall



Here is a beautiful example of a blued Model 61—still "Mint In The Box." This photo shows the 3-piece bullets. These bullets, of themselves, are actually a collector's item, as they were used in several models of cap guns. Thank you to Rich Hall for this nice photo.
This is the chrome version of the same cap pistol. There seem to have been fewer of these produced than the blued model, although Stallion Model 61's are NOT plentiful in any style!

Nice set, huh? You will notice that the brown holsters is exactly like the black one down below except that it has the original buckle. Jack Rosenthal from Toys and More, contributed this photo.



These two photos above show the VERY RARE maroon holster and the fancy buckle. Rich told me that the black (more common), maroon (rare) and gray (extremely rare!) holsters were actually made during the time that Uncle Talley was in charge before the Kusan days.

Thanks to Rich Hall



You're not going to see a much prettier example of the "61" than this one.
This is also a good representation of the 3-piece bullets that it would fire. One visitor commented on the display stand that goes with this particular model. It's really nice. Just an old horseshoe, a vertical bar and then a horizontal bar with "V" offset bars, probably with rubber or plastic over them. If you were savvy enough to make these, I would buy a couple for myself and you could probably sell them on this website to your heart's content. I think they would be very popular. A lost-cost alternative to the grand display!

Thanks to Gene Stramel for the photograph!

The standard Stallion Model 61 Cap Gun, blued that is, is the one that you see the most often. However, it still isn't cheap and this example is just about perfect!

The latest research indicates that this particular Stallion Model 61 has been DOCTORED! That is, it originally was 2 different Cap Guns and was put together like this. A chrome rear and a blued front. But that's okay, it is still really nice.
Wonderful Photos — Thanks To Doug Hamilton



Here's a nice holster from Nichols for the Stallion Model 61. This holster ISN'T CHEAP!

Stallion Model 61 Gold Heirloom Dueling Set!!!
Please Click On Each Thumbnail For An Enlarged View!
Wonderful Photos of one of the most rare and elusive of all of the Nichols series!!! For the serious collector this would be considered a "must have" if only you could find one. However, these guns and this particular set are so rare that it just doesn't help you to want one. Harold Utley mentioned that someone had seen them advertised in an old Alden catalog, but friends of mine and my family have never even seen them, but don't doubt their authenticity. These babies ARE FOR REAL!

Thanks to Jim Manning for these special photos!




What more can I say? Thanks to Jim Manning for this photo!


And another good photo of the gold dueling set from Jim Manning.




The above 3 photos are from our good friend Ed Manes and show the kind of quality that he is setting his heart upon. When the box lid is closed it looks like my Buccaneer Heirloom Dueling Set, but when you open it, you find that you have misled yourself by about the price of a vacation to Italy. Thanks Ed.

The Stallion Model 61 pistol has become very popular due to its scarcity. It comes in both a blued version and a standard chrome one (and of course the famous gold dueling set, oh be still my heart!). It was also made for the Daisy BB Gun Company and those are also prized possessions. Later Kusan made a smaller version (really crummy) of this gun as well.

Here is a gold Stallion Model 61 and another one below that happens to have a chrome cylinder and hammer. These are from Chuck Quinn's collection. Click on either to see a larger photo of the same gun.



If you CLICK on this photo of the back of the Stallion Model 61 box back of its Collectors Series, then you will see the gun in the shadow box.

Here's a late addition to the 61 Line: The Collectors Series shadow box and gun.
