Toy Gun, Pop Gun, 33 Repeater

Toy Gun, Pop Gun, 33 Repeater

     

This toy gun, the 33 Repeater, was first introduced in 1935 by All Metal Products of Wyandotte, Michigan, which manufactured the toy through 1941. The red, stamped-metal gun used a cork inside the toy to produce the "popping" sound. Approximately ten years later, probably in the midst of WWII, All Metal Products produced a new version of the toy -- then called the "ZZ Ray" gun -- with a red, white, and blue design painted on the flared mouth of the toy gun's barrel.

Michael O'Harro gave this toy gun to the National Collection in 1997 as a part of a large donation of space science fiction objects.
