Cap Gun Monday: Buzz Henry GENE AUTRY

It has come to my attention that a couple of you cowpokes actually missed this feature while it was on hiatus during our Continental Op extravaganza. Sorry to cause anyone discomfort. Rest assured there are many more weapons in the cap gun arsenal. 

I don't know anything about the Buzz Henry (hence the BH brand) line of guns except that it was obviously related to the Leslie-Henry company. This little Gene pistol was designed for small hands, and is only 7 1/2" long. It's unusual in that the grip is part of the metal cast, with plastic pictorial inserts. The same gun was manufactured in Roy Rogers and Dale Evans models, and the plastic piece was sometimes red, blue or black. Shucks, I don't have any of those.

More, more, lots more Cap Guns HERE.

That's a handsome little shootin' iron, Pard.
