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

This is just such a nice photo of this gun with a holster that I had to put it in.

Thanks to Dave Klein for the photo.



Ric-O-Shay Jr. by Hubley
Here is the little brother for the regular Ric-O-Shay. I am told that this Cap Gun also makes that sound by the hammer hitting a wire that strikes a metal drum.

This is an even better photo collection of the Ric-O-Shay Jr.

Photos thanks to Chuck Quinn



Here's the Ric-O-Shay in gold from our friend Jim Manning.

The four above photos and their pop-ups thanks to Don Raker.


This box for the deputy (and Deputy Star too!) has got to be rare. Jack Rosenthal , one of our advertisers from Toys and More, contributed this photo.


Here's a good view of the inside of the box, with the Cap Gun.
Dave Klahn contributed this photo.


Here's an even rarer box for the Deputy which includes a Deputy badge.
Thanks Rich Hall.



Hubley Flip
FLIP was the part played by Doug McClure on the NBC-TV show Overland Trail. William Bendix played Kelly and was the trail boss.

The above photos thanks to Mike Vickery
The photo below thanks to Mark Landes



This is an even better close-up of the cylinder area of the Flip Cap Gun from the TV show. This is from our friend Rich Hall.


Here's one of the last Cap Guns made by Hubley and this one was made for Sears in 1963. Notice that the grip has a mountain lion on the grip. Mountain lion, catamount, cougar, puma, panther...whatever! But, as far as I know, it is the only cat on a grip.


I'm almost reluctant to include this set, for it was made AFTER the days when Hubley was in the driver's seat. They had sold out to Gabriel and the end was in sight for the "Glory Days of Cap Guns."


Here's a cute little pair of Hubley Stars.

Photo donated by Joe Garvey. Thank you very much.





Here is a Hubley Paladin model. It is much more rare than the Leslie-Henry version of the Paladin.

Thanks to Steve Arlin for this photo.

And I guess if all of these Cap Guns didn't keep you in line, then...it's off to jail for you with the Sheriff! These are from our friend Chuck Quinn. He says that it came from Hubley and who am I to differ?
