Crescent Toys were made in England from July 1922 to the 1970's by Henry G. Eagles and Arthur A. Schneider. They originally specialized in model Soldiers, Cowboys, Kitchen sets, etc., from lead alloy—but later they made Cap Guns. Sometimes their "style" resembles Lone Star and can be confusing. However the boxes usually make it pretty easy to tell the difference.

Crescent Silva-Mite
This is a virtual copy of the Nichols Dyna-Mite, including the name! How can that be? My only possible guess is that Uncle Talley was selling so many Dyan-Mites that he didn't want an international lawsuit.

By the way...what does "Silva" have to do with guns, Cap Guns, or the Old West?

Crescent Walther PP
Here's a pretty simple version of the famous James Bond PPK. At least that's what I thought until a customer wrote me and said this is actually the only example of the Walther PP. Very similar. The pictured cap gun came in at least two colors: greenish with brown grips, and silver with black grips.

Crescent Colt
Well, now I do have photos of the Cap Gun and so I will use them! Notice that this Cap Gun has no pretense of a trigger guard of any kind, just a curved piece of metal sticking out into the wind.

Crescent Bronco
This is a small Cap Gun from England. I don't really know much about it.

Crescent Lawman
Here is a Cap Gun that is basically dedicated to the lawmen of The Old West. I guess the Old West in England would be Ireland. Whoops! That will get me some e-mail.

Crescent Buntline Special
I don't really know a lot about this Cap Gun except that it is another one of those guns made in England. Though there weren't as many English companies making Cap Guns, they did make some nice ones.

Kansas Kid Presentation Set
This is a Crescent Kansas Kid boxed presentation set. The guns have a beautiful engraving that says Kansas Kid on the barrel. This is a very rare set.

Here are a couple of Derringers made by BCM and Crescent. The one on the top is a "Pepperbox." The one on the bottom actually has a small cylinder and is called the "Cloverleaf." The Pepperbox is made by BCM, but the Cloverleaf is by Crescent.


Here is a good close-up of the Cloverleaf by Crescent. I can't quite tell how many cylinders it has, but I'm guessing five.

All of the above photos thanks to Steve Arlin.

Here is the box, which looks as if it just left the box company, but where is the gun? This is #999 which is the "Rustler Gem Six Shooter." (for the Junior Cowboy)

Here is a Rustler 38 and box. Quire rare. This one seems to be missing the left grip emblem. Notice that it has a wolf facing down on the grip. As far as I know, only Crescent did this.

Photos thanks to Chuck Quinn (above and below).

Here's the same basic Cap Gun, but is sure does look a lot like the Nichols Stallion 45. Except for the wolf. And a few other little details.

Here are a couple of photos demonstrating that Crescent actually produced 2 versions of the same gun: one with the bullet ejector and one without.

Crescent Rustler Colt
Here's another variation of the Rustler theme with the Colt. This is a rare Cap Gun folks and this one is MINT IN THE BOX. What else would you expect from Chuck Quinn?

Crescent Rustler Bronco
Here's another variation of the Rustler theme with the Bronco. Steve says that this gun is very unusual in that the cap box comes out!!! Weird!

Great dueling set of Crescent guns from the UK. Marc Gregory says that the little indent in the middle of the box was for a bottle of oil with a cork closure.

This is one nice Lone Ranger Cap Gun!

Steve says that even though this Cap Gun rifle is not in very good shape, it is so rare that it really doesn't make any difference. Very few of you have probably ever seen this one!
