This Lone Ranger Rifle was a Mattel Shootin' Shell Rifle! That is, it actually shot little plastic pellets that were similar to the Nichols-style pellets that were used in the Derringer, Stallion Model 61, Buccaneer and Detective.

This rifle is 26" long and it has a metallic sticker on the right side of the stock. This is a rare model and makes a mighty nice prize for the owner.

These two photos thanks to Frank from Absecon, New Jersey!

I might have put this set with the Crackfire rifle, but it only says Crackfire by the pistol and holster and the rifle is the basic Winchester above, but with "Lone Ranger" on the receiver.

Thanks to Jack Rosenthal



This is the same basic rifle, but it has golden metal and instead of the simple silver cover for the receiver, you will notice that it has scrollwork painted on. See the little lever on the handle that allows it to shoot in rapid succession? This rifle must really be rare, for I see a lot of the others, but not this one.

Thanks to Steve Arlin

Mattel "Winchester" Saddle Gun
This is the Mattel "Winchester" Saddle Gun. This one is in almost mint condition and has the original box. This Cap Gun has the rapid fire feature. It loads and ejects the Mattel play bullets and uses perforated roll caps.

All photos thanks to Rich Hall, one of the greatest collectors in the hobby. You ought to check our Collections Page to see more of his collection.

Here is the same saddle gun from about 1958 and packaged with a bandolier and ammunition!

Photo thanks to BL



Well, by now you know what a sucker I am for a really nice photo and this one is no exception. Except for the places where somebody tore off the yellow label, everything about this one is dead mint. And I would have photo-edited those yellow places back into the photo if only I had an inkling of what they looked like. But I don't have a better example. You can click on the photo to see a bigger one, for I couldn't resist that either.




And here is the very next generation of this rifle, but with Shootin' Shells.

Photos thanks to Scott McCollum, of Cap Gun Treasures.



Here is a variant by Mattel. The Buffalo Hunter Set, which includes a Fanner 45 and a hunting knife and holster. Very rare set and not cheap!

Thanks to David Brown for the photo.






How's this for a pretty spectacular toy Tommy Gun set? It includes the snub nosed 38 listed above and a toy Tommy Gun that almost looks real. And for a kid to play with??? Well, you have to understand; in "the good old days" we weren't afraid of our children and children were actually taught Right and Wrong and the police were respected!!! Ahhhhh, fond memories! (I combined 2 of Ken's photos.)

Thanks to Ken Thompson for this photo.



Mattel Tommy Burp Machine Gun
Here's another toy Tommy Gun. At first glance you would think this is the exact same toy gun as the one above, but it isn't. In this case, the photos are so nice that I probably would want to put them here anyway, but this one has a different name and is not a set.

These photos are thanks to Roy Steunenberg.

Here's the Tommy Burp, but Mint On the Card (MOC).

Thanks to Rich Hall for this photo.


I look on auction sites a lot and this is the first time I have seen this particular toy machine gun. This is a .30 cal. Browning Machine Gun from World War II (basically). It is the American version and you can tell because the American version has a pistol grip-type handle, whereas the British version has two grips and the trigger mechanism is located between them and is a lever-type button. While this one doesn't have a trigger, per se, it has the American pistol grip. It fires by turning the crank, simple as that.

So just when I thought I wouldn't see one again, here is another one and this one has the tripod too! And a BOX!!!

Mattel Dick Tracy Tommy Burst Cap Gun Set
And another toy Tommy Gun! Here's another variation of the Thompson 45 sub-machine gun by Mattel. This one is in C-10 perfect condition too!!! Again, this gun was called the Tommy Gun, named after its designer, Thompson. They were used in World War Two, but their cost was rather high, so we didn't have nearly as many of them as we wanted. Gangsters seemed to always be able to afford them, even though they were illegal to own. But since when do the crooks pay attention to the Liberal's restrictive laws?
