Toy Gun, Buck Rogers, Water Pistol, XZ-44 Liquid Helium, Painted Finish

     

This is a Buck Rogers XZ-44 Liquid Helium Toy Water Pistol manufactured by Daisy Manufacturing Co. in 1936. Inside the toy's metal body, where the red and yellow lightning bolts meet, a leather sack held the water for this water gun. The gun was also issued in a solid copper-colored finish, which has become the more rare of the two versions.

Michael O'Harro gave this toy to the National Collection in 1997.
