The Stallion 300 Saddle Gun could easily be listed under "Stallions," but the "Rifles" section needed more clout, so I put it here. Besides, not everybody thinks of it as a Stallion, since Stallions were generally cap pistols.

In the late 50's Chuck Conners starred on the TV show, "The Rifleman" and naturally every kid then wanted a 30-30 rifle. Nichols filled the bill by coming out with the 300. It was just about the right size for a young kid and some of us were lucky enough to be given one of these at Christmas. Just a little later Hubley came out with one that was apparently licensed from the show and had the characteristic circular cocking lever that was on the TV show.


HELP!
Normally I don't grovel and beg for money, but I am past that stage. Originally we had quite a few who helped us each month by contributing a little to our cause of maintaining this website. Not so much anymore. It's a trickle now.

The Internet wants a mobile-friendly website and we don't know how to convert a 7,000+ page custom website over to a format where you can always read it on a smartphone or tablet. This is the largest "Static" website on the internet. It's only a matter of time before we lose it all to "progress." I'm old, have only Windows 7 my software won't load on a higher operating system, and I don't know how to keep up with these changes and am worried about losing it all.

I would ask those who are enjoying this site to PLEASE contribute at least a little to helping us keep it going. This is the only site where you are likely to find most of the Cap Guns ever made. The site will always be free, but it's not free for me.

YOU CAN CLICK BELOW TO HELP OUT!
(Contritubutions start at $10, but you can make it more if you can afford.)

Thanks a bunch!

—George Michael (Mike) Nichols, Texas




Here's a nice example of the Stallion 300 Saddle Gun. This one has an almost brand new box! The little white clip is a bullet clip, which in itself is quite rare. You can see the selector switch on the right side of this gun. This one I bought on Ebay and didn't even know the bullet clip was inside until Jamie Linford told me! And that clip is expensive!


Here's a nice closeup shot of the hammer/trigger area showing the "Ejector Selector" switch. This baby uses the full-sized Stallion 45 bullets, and this switch controlled the ejection when you cocked the rifle. On "Super" the bullet would fly out when you cocked it. The bullet carrier moves toward the rear to cock the hammer.




The Stallion 300 used bullets like these, but by the time it came out, of course they were selling the regular zinc-alloy bullets. These are the more expensive aluminum bullets!

Mail in your certificate, get your bullet clip.





And here's what the certificate looked like. You won't see many of these, for most kids mailed it in. Then they were as dumb as I was and lost the bullet clip!

This toy rifle was designed well and well built, however finding one these days is a little difficult. And expensive! Find one in a mint box and you have a prize that few of your fellow collectors will have.
