Larry Nogle of the Yellow Garage Antiques presents a rare and nostalgic Kilgore toy Deputy Six Shooter Cap Gun. Joseph Kilgore founded his company in Homestead, Pa in 1917. Two years later he moved his business to Westerville, Ohio and quickly became the "world's largest producer of toy cap guns and the caps they used" at the time. The "Deputy" toy cap gun was manufactured between 1955 and 1960 and was one of their most popular. It was a nickel plated die cast gun with a multi-shot double action pistol that used disc caps. Engravings on the toy pistol are intricate and well defined. The Kilgore company stood behind their product. Please note their warranty and repair policy stated on the box. Both the cap gun and its box are in excellent condition. You simply will not find a toy of this vintage with so little wear or use. It will surely be the centerpiece of your collection.
Dimensions: Box 6 3/4" by 3 3/4"
