Gun Play: Marx Six Shooter

Looks authentic, don't it? But it's really a cap gun, and less than four inches long to boot. Marx marketed their line of Miniature Firearms in various ways. You might find them strapped to a card, in a plastic box with the name of the gun engraved on top, or in a set with other guns. The set this came in includes a detective .38 and a tommy-gun, in addition to other Old West weapons. The Six Shooter breaks open like a real gun for loading caps, and you fire by pulling back the hammer. For some reason Marx made relatively few full-size cap guns, and nearly all of those were lightweight plastic with metal triggers and hammers. Part of the joy of toting a cap gun was feeling the weight of metal on your hip--and in your hand, so Marx missed the boat on that. On the other hand, these miniatures were cool because you could sneak them into school.

Most of the guns I had back in the fifties came from Chad Valley. I recall an issue in the late fifties where someone came up with a replica Remington .44 and a gold Peacemaker. It may have been Chad Valley.
Now there's a title for a BHW - 'Guns Of Chad Valley'.
