Wooden .30-06 replica. With a gold-painted wood cartridge you could see when the bolt was open.

Mine was a 1911 copy that fired plastic suction-cup darts. It was colored red and blue but I spray-painted it black and colored the grips brown just like my dad's real one. Unfortunately none of the parts (slide, safety) worked but it was the closest replica I could find as a kid. If only Airsoft guns had existed at the time I'd have mowed a million lawns just to have a KWS or Tokyo Marui M1911A1.

Yeah I had one of those as well. If you're over the age of 40 I think we all did.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Mattel Tommy Burst




it had a spring loaded bolt you pulled back and DA-DA-DA-DA-DA when you pulled the trigger

here's a '60s commercial for it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMqd5EQXD-g

I wasn't inspired to be G-man like the kid in the commercial though

I was "Sarge" from the TV series Combat

A model 94 win and a Colt Peacemaker. Surprising for a NYC kid. Ha

I think we're discussing guns you can't shoot your eye out with.

I had two: one a revolver and the other a semiauto.

I thought (like Steve Camp) that the rear grasping grooves on the semiauto might be for ventilation!

A pistol that looked like a Hammerli 280. It had a detachable magazine and shot little pink rubber bullets.

I had several, but I always fell back on a "pirate" gun.....a muzzle-loading handgun. It was kind of cool and then I saw Mad Max. Then it became my Mad Max shotgun and it was super cool.

NDL - hasn't New York banned those yet?

My favorite was an 1851 Navy copy. It had "engraving" and plastic ivory grips, and came with a tie-down leather holster. My police officer uncle gave it to me for my birthday. I passed it along to my little brother. After watching a Lone Ranger episode where someone got knocked out with a pistol butt, he smacked my sister and she had to get stitches. He was only 4 or 5 at the time. I got fussed at for letting him have the gun!

When I was a kid, they had a WWII GI Army soldier set. it had a plastic BAR with bipod, a plastic 1911 and all the accessories to go with it like the helmet, canteen, belt, etc. I really liked it too. But I honestly do not remember what happened to it though. But I sure got to play a lot of make believe war with the other kids at the time.

When I was a kid I had a double barrel cap shotgun. It had a wooden stock, steel barrels, double triggers, and twin hammers. You could drop the hammer of both barrels if you wanted. Since the metal was blued steel, I needed to keep her oiled.

I don't recall whatever happened to it.

Mattel Fanner 50 two gun set with real leather holsters. Hop Along Cassidy gun and holster set. But my favorite was a wooden Thompson Machine Gun that my Dad made me out of a 2"x8" pine board. He cut it out with his new for Christmas Craftsman Sabersaw. He said it was like the one he carried in the Philippines in WW2. It's amazing how much more kids in the 1950s appreciated the simple things in life. I played with that gun more than any other toy I had and it was my greatest treasure.
