Wyandotte Toys (All Metal Products, Co. of Wyandotte, Michigan) was one of the largest manufacturers of Hopalong Cassidy Cap Guns. Like most of the toy gun companies, their "heyday" was after World War II. Probably most of the guns that you will see that feature Hoppy were Wyandotte guns. Since there are so many still around, they must have been well made. We hope that you will send in your nice photos of Wyandotte guns so that we will have a good representation.

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



Wyandotte Rancher
I don't know much about this particular Cap Gun except that it would look good on my shelf with its associated box. This website has been up a long time and I have had many people send in photos, but I am just now getting this one, so it must be somewhat rare!

These photos thanks to Chuck Quinn!



And here's another Rancher offering from Chuck, but the Cap Gun says, "SHERIFF." I don't know how to explain this, so I'm just going to be happy to have a fine photo. Do click on the photo to see a bigger one.


For all practical purposes, this is the same Cap Gun, but dedicated to Hopalong Cassidy.

This offering is from Tim Tobin



I'm sorry I don't have the Cap Gun, but at least I have the box. This offering is from our good friend Doug Hamilton. Doug is the man who led us to visit the "Avenue of the Giants," which is the Redwood forest in California. A nicer guy you will seldom meet. Many people in the Cap Gun fraternity are just that nice.


Wyandotte Hopalong Cassidy Gun
Wyandotte is very famous for their Hopalong Cassidy guns.

Single Shot Wyandotte Hopalong Cassidy Gun - 1955
Here is a very simple Hopalong Cassidy offering from Wyandotte. Schleyer says that this Cap Gun is moderately rare.
All photos thanks to Rick McQuiston

Wyandotte Hopalong Cassidy Gun in Gold!
This is the same Cap Gun as above, but in the more rare gold finish with black grips.

Thanks to Tom Coates for these photos!
And another visitor to our site contributes these photos of the box for this Cap Gun. What I think is an interesting point is that if you will notice the lower left photo, it says "© WM. BOYD" because I wasn't aware that our friend William Boyd held the copyright to the "Hopalong Cassidy" brand. But that's the way it seems. It's a shame that Clayton Moore was denied appearing as "The Lone Ranger" in later years.

Thanks Bruce Deas!



And how could anybody resist putting this fine set of gold Hopalong Cassidy Cap Guns here? Aren't these beauties?

Here's a regular pair of the gold Hoppys restored by Frank McMath in 24 K gold! The custom presentation case was made by Jim Quick with orginal Hoppy concho. I know I already have photos of these guns, but I like the quality of Frank's stuff (and Jim's), and since I own the website, it goes HERE!!!

Thanks to Don Raker




Wyandotte Hopalong Cassidy Golden Dummy Holster Set
This is a huge Hopalong Cassidy boxed set that features a rare set of gold Hopalong Cassidy dummy cap guns with the tags still attached. The guns are unfired and have never been played with. The set comes complete with a double Hopalong Cassidy holster, a set of Hopalong spurs and a set of Hopalong Cassidy wrist cuffs. This may be the only large boxed set of its kind known to exist in any collection.
Thanks to Scott McCollum for the photos.





Wyandotte Me & My Buddy Pistol
Though "Backyard Buckaroos" has this listed as a Marx toy, the owner says it’s marked, " 'Pat. Pending/ Wyandotte Toys' on the left side right above the top of the grip. There’s a separate cowboy-type guy riveted to the right side of the revolver’s frame and he carries a Wyandotte Toys Made-In-U.S.A. Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. Logo on his thigh, and 'Pat Pend.' repeated on his calf/knee." So, I'll defer to the owner's judgment. This is not a cap gun per se and is, instead, a "Clicker Gun."

Many thanks to Mick Scheib for these photos!



Wyandotte 1935 "Clam Shell" Cap Gun
Here's a weird one from 1935. It is called a "Clam Shell" because it opens up like a clam to insert the roll of caps. Very simple stamped metal gun, but pretty rare.

Thanks to Doug Hamilton for these photos!
