Hubley was from Lancaster, Pennsylvania and started in 1894. The Hubley company made some of the finest Cap Guns you ever saw. The Texans and the Cowboy were especially popular. They made guns with nice scrollwork and some that were gold. They are still considered very valuable collector's items. If you collect Cap Guns, then (besides Nichols Industries Cap Guns, of course!!!) you have got to have a good collection of Hubleys.

One of their most popular Cap Guns was from The Rifleman television show starring Chuck Connors and Johnny Crawford. It had that special cocking lever so he could really fire quickly. There are several examples in this Hubley section.

Then there is their fabulous Colt 45 that was a full-sized model of the Civil War pistol. I love it!

PLEASE HELP!
(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.

ONE WAY TO CONTRIBUTE IS ALSO TO PURCHASE THE GLASS CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENTS AS IN THE AD JUST ABOVE HERE!
www.NicholsCapGuns.com/glassware.htm


See how many people have helped us one way or the other over 12+ years at:
http://www.NicholsCapGuns.com/contributors.htm

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.

YOU CAN CLICK BELOW TO HELP OUT!
(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



Hubley Padlock Cap Gun
How's this for a weird Cap Gun? I found this in my graphics files and can't remember where I got it. If these were your photos, then write in and tell me your name so I can give you proper credit.




Hubley Smoky Joe
This is one of the Hubley Cast-Iron Cap Guns from around the 1940's or so.

Panther Pistol Derringer Set
Here's another unusual novelty item from Hubley.

Thanks to Don Raker for the photos above and Doug Hamilton for the one below.


And thanks to Jamie Linford, here is a carded version of the same gun. Jamie says that it is extremely rare to see a carded version, as they are usually found as the Panther Pistol Derringer Set.


Hubley Over Under Double Barrel Derringer Cap Gun-Panther
Well, I got some more photos of this little Cap Gun, so...Why Not?

Thanks to Doug Hamilton for these photos!

This is pretty ridiculous, but it does illustrate how in the "Good Old Days" parents weren't as stupid (read: POLITICALLY CORRECT) as they are now.

Hubley Sure-Shot
I put this Cap Gun under the Wyatt Earp model because they are so much alike.

It's truly amazing how many Cap Guns Hubley made. But this one isn't seen very often.

Thanks to Don Raker for this contribution!

Here's a Hubley Sure-Shot box, but I'm not convinced which model it is for.


Another Hubley Sure-Shot
Here are a few more photos of this Hubley Sure-Shot in order that you can get an even better idea of what it looks like—especially up close.

Hubley Cowpoke
This Cap Gun Model by Hubley is EXACTLY the same gun as the one on the Halco page. But there is a good reason for that. They were made by the same people—just with different lettering on the side.

If you will remember, Halco was a distributing company and several other companies made things for them. Leslie-Henry also made Halco guns.

However, this gun has its own value, for if you want the entire collection, you are going to have to get it.

Hub (Cast Iron)
This old cast-iron toy gun is a Hubley. It is called a "HUB" and has the characteristic red star on its grip in just the right spot.

Thanks to Roman Rychlik
Here is another Hub, but this one is nickel plated.

Thanks to Doug Hamilton
