Cap Gun Monday: Hubley TEXAN JR.


This is one of many incarnations of Hubley's ever-popular Texan Jr. You might think of it as the cap gun equivalent of an automobile. The model changed over the years, while the name remained the same. Like its daddy, the Texan, the earliest version was made of cast iron. This one, probably from the late '50s and early '60s, is nine inches long and made of pot metal. Stay tuned for more Texan Jrs as the Almanack rolls merrily along.

I'm not 100% positive, but I think I had that one, only with a black steer head on the grips.
