Well, here's Mordt. I'm not even going to try and pretend that I know a thing about the Mordt Company—except that it was in Chicago. I hope that some of you will enlighten me so that I can add to the record. Obviously their products are still being collected and those who discarded them in the "Good Old Days" are now regretting 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:

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



Mordt Shoot 'Em Set
Here's a particularly rare set with wrist cuffs, holster and box.

Thanks to Rich Hall.
You Will Miss Out If You Don't Click On The Thumbnails!



This is an extremely rare (though perhaps not all that valuable) Junior Ranger set from Mordt.


And here's what's left of a Texas Ranger set from Mordt. Notice those deep dips in the holster pockets? That seems to be characteristic of Mordt holsters.


Well, after saying that the curvature in the pocket just screams, "Mordt," I guess I am going to have to surmise that this set was also made by Mordt. It looks like a set that must have been made during World War II because of the patriotic symbols on the box. The holsters have written on them, "Let "em Buck." If any of you have a better idea of who made this set, then please let me know.

These photos are of a 1928 Mordt Jr. Ranger .32 caliber. There are so few Mordt Cap Guns left that I am including one of the very old cast iron guns. Photos by Mark King.


Here's a good example of what you can do with some leather and a lot of talent. The holster on the right is original and the one on the left is a reproduction of the same. The Cap Guns are Mordt (and the right holster). Chuck Quinn says Ed can make anything!

Mordt Kid's Holster
This is a vintage Mordt kid's western holster and belt. The Belt has 7 painted wooden bullets. The back of the holster is signed "Made By The Mordt Co."
Many thanks to "unverviking" for these photos.




Mordt Cap / Dart Gun From The 1930's
Mordt made a few really nice cast-iron cap guns and this one is a good example. Actually this gun fires darts too, according to Jim Schleyer.

I have purposefully left the rust on the gun, but it is hard to find cast-iron guns of this period (the 1930's) that aren't rusted a little now. You will notice that this version is the more rare of the two versions, in that it has the pearl grips.
Thanks to Mike Schoen for this contribution!

Well, I may as well just paste in the full-sized photos, as Mordt Cap Guns are a little hard to come by! This is from about 1932 and is the same basic gun as that one above, but it doesn't have plastic grips. I don't really know if it fires the darts.

Photos thanks to Jack Rosenthal



Here is the same gun, but also with the box, which Chuck tells me is much more valuable than the gun!!! In many cases that is true.

Photos thanks to Chuck Quinn
