Cap Gun Monday: THE REBEL'S SCATTERGUN (out of the box)


OK, last week I showed you the appetizer. Now here's the main course. This baby is a whopping 21 inches long, and has the look and feel of a real gun. And it's mighty dang close to the prop Nick Adams carried on the show. The main difference is that Classy added the fancy scrollwork on the casing. 












The fine print inside the loading zone here reads "Classy Prod. Co. Woodside, NY," meaning this was made by Classy Products, a relatively minor player in the cap gun field. The name Classy appeared nowhere on the box I featured last week, but one of the end panels says "Harvell-Kilgore Sales Corporation, Bolivar, Tennessee." Never hear of Harvell, but Kilgore was a major player. I'm guessing they handled the distribution, at least on this gun, for Classy. 



More, but no more spectacular, Cap Guns HERE.

You know what would be a scream? Walk into a bank with this and pop off a few caps. Ha ha ha, what fun for all.

Happy Labor Day you guys.

Same to you, Mr & Mrs R. And that's a great idea, Cap'n. I'll do that right after I take it to the airport and march around the terminal with a hood over my head.

I can't wait to hear your report.

Let us know if you survive the airport. Looks like a dangerous weapon.

Johnny Yuma was a big hit. That Cap shotgun was sold in April 1960 in Boston. Everyone wanted one. Another company made one as well but it didn't look as good.. I heard it was reissued about 15-20 years ago.

Just found this group. This is a test message. Interested in seeing the REAL scatter gun used by Nick Adams? I have this as well as other Johnny Yuma collectibles. Always interested in seeing what others have!

Happy July 4th!
