Buck Rogers XZ-31 Rocket Pistol

Buck Rogers XZ-31 Rocket Pistol, Daisy Mfg. Co., USA, 1934

This is the first raygun ever produced as a toy. Call it the origin, number one or whatever else you may fancy. All I know was it made a big bang (lol) right from the start and sold in great numbers when it was launched in 1934. Now, it is still making "BANG"' 80 years later...  Read more about the story of this toy here.

The cocking mechanism is quite special, but still works after all this time !
