This is a small vintage toy cap gun in the style of a 25 caliber automatic. It is made of a heavy cast metal. It is marked "25 JR" on each pistol grip and "Made in USA" on one side. The firing mechanism, trigger and hammer work perfectly, along with the internal lever that feeds the caps upward from the roll. The finish has age and there is some very light rust in spots, but it the finish is very good for it's age for it's age. The left pistol grip serves as a cover for the place to put the caps. It does not snap shut like it should and swings open too easily. It needs to be tightened. The gun measures about 4" long.
