It does NOT shoot any type of projectile nor can it be made to shoot any projectile. This is a vintage, extremely nice example of a Kilgore brand,'Long Tom', cap gun.
This is a 80-90 year old toy and is not brand new; however, the hammer rises/falls when the trigger is pulled and the cylinder advances. We did not attempt to fire this toy with caps. All parts of this vintage toy appear in very nice condition. There is expected pitting to the metal and it could probably use additional cleaning/restoration; however, this is a bit out of our realm of expertise and we did not want to potentially damage this piece. This replica gun contains the colored markings required by law, including a permanently attached orange plug.
