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!

I also handmake glassware which is perfect for gifts.

(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
