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!

Normally I don't grovel and beg for money, but we are past that stage. Originally we had enough brave (read: loyal) souls who helped us each month by contributing a little to our cause of maintaining this website. Not so much anymore. The financial contributions have dwindled down to a small trickle.

Besides the expense of keeping it up, the Internet itself and Microsoft have been "upping the ante." 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 a "Static" website—the largest on the internet. But it is only a matter of time before we lose it all to scientific inertia. I'm old, have only Windows 7 (my editing software won't load on a later versions of Windows) and though I have been building websites all over North America for 21 years, 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 nearly anything ever made—especially in die-cast Cap Guns. If you can't send a financial contribution, then send photos and info of a Cap Gun not on the site! That builds the value of the site.


Thanks a bunch!
