c.1960 B.C.M. Space Outlaw Pistol in Original Box

In 1947 the young Lesney (Matchbox) company was first introduced to the possibility of manufacturing toys when a company called M.Y. Dart inquired if Lesney could make a part for their die cast toy cap gun which was called the "BCM Space Outlaw" ray gun".

The Space Outlaw Atomic Pistol is a recoiling barrel, repeating cap gun. It's all chrome plated die cast metal with red transparent cap chamber windows on both sides. This example is in superb unused mint condition complete with its original box. It's never fired a cap!

As it states on the box, the barrel recoils every time you pull the trigger (and yes it works great!). It also simultaneously sparks a cap inside the chamber. It features a contoured grip embossed with rockets and stars, plus a flanged tube-like rear sight, and pop up front sight. The button just below the rear sight opens the cap chamber.

The colorful box show several "space outlaws" floating above a planet. A flying saucer pursued by a rocket is shown in the background. The endflaps and side panels were printed with the toy and manufacturer name, as well as the country of origin.
