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.

I handmake glassware which is perfect for gifts.
Like these inexpensive Angel Christmas Tree Ornaments!

(Thank you for some of you have contributed generously and have helped us stay alive!)
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.


See how many people have helped us one way or the other over 12+ years at:

Hundreds of wonderful people for over 12 years!

Also...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. Even Google said that this is the largest "Static" website on the entire internet. But it's only a matter of time before we lose it all to "progress." I'm old, have only Windows 7 and 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. If you're an expert, please help by suggesting a sensible technological upgrade! No two pages are completely alike on this website. If I could redo 10 pages a day, it would take about 2 years!

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

(Contritubutions start at only $10, but you can make it more if you can afford it.)
(And we refuse to put you on a mailing list or sell your e-mail address.)
Thank you "History Buffs & Collectors"—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.

Here's an old ad for Nichols Cap Guns
from a comic book circa 1961.
