My early training revolver. Nichols Stallion .45

Postby puma guy » Sat Apr 07, 2018 9:13 am

When I was a kid the Holy Grail of cap pistols was the Nichols Industries Peacemaker replicas. The toy industry thought so too and it was the Toy of the Year when it was introduced. Imagine that! A toy gun having that sort of status. How things have changed. Living in Pasadena where they were made they were quite common back then. My brother and I were fortunate enough to each have one. Wish I still had mine. This video is a later model but they all worked the same way. The company eventually made many models and variations including a .30-30 and information can be found on Wikipedia for anyone interested. The background music is an anachronism, it should be Lone Ranger or Roy Rogers theme. :lol:

That’s really cool, thanks for showing it. I never had that specific brand/model, but I did have six-shooter cap guns when I was a little boy, so that brought back some memories!

I noticed Jacksonville, Tx was stamped inside the box lid. That's less than a hour away from me. You got an address for them? :)

I do remember those and had one myself, I think they should have had a Lash LaRue model! :cheers2:

The company was sold to another toy manufacturer in the 1970's I believe. I'm sure all the cap gun makers are gone. Nichols, Hubbel, etc. Look up Nichols Stallion 45 on Wikipedia for more info. I went to elementary school with one of the Nichols kids. He had many of their cap guns around.
