This replica toy cap gun is not a real gun. This replica gun contains the colored markings required by law, including a permanently attached orange plug. Vintage 1950's George Schmidt "Hopalong Cassidy" Toy Cap Gun. Stored in custom aluminum case with velvet and foam liner.
My collection is a little over 100 individual pistols and pistol sets some with their orignal leather holsters. My dad got me started on this- when I was a child he was an Industrial designer for IRWIN, Mattel, Hasbro and other New England Toy companies in the 1950's and early 1960's. I inherited his collection as a starting point. This collection was carefully stored and curated.
Most examples are in excellent condition with no firing/no wear to light firing and/light wear. I have a few holy grail prototypes including the infamous "ghost gun".They will all be listed over the next few days. Up for sale is a wonderful vintage George Schmidt Mfg. "Hopalong Cassidy" die-cast cap gun. Trigger has a good solid snap. Age-related patina to the die-cast metal exterior. Some cap burn and light corrosion inside the firing chamber. Light wear on the plastic grips- no cracks. Custom aluminum hard storage case with fitted velvet and foam liner. Has a plastic "Hoppy" badge but I don't think it is from the same early date as the cap gun.
This item was never cleaned or polished.
