Cap Gun Monday: Hubley TEXAN JR. (first edition)

This earliest version of the Texan Jr. began production around 1940, the first of a line that lasted into the '60s. This one is eight inches long, on the small side for a cowboy pistol, but weighs a lot more than most because it's made of cast iron. I posted a 1950s pot metal version of the gun HERE. At some point inbetween the Colt firearms folks got in a snit and made Hubley stop using the rearing stallion. Hubley replaced it with a star. 

Wanta see more guns? HERE's the place.
