Gun Play: Marx Cavalry Pistol


This Marx Miniature Firearm (about 4 inches long) was marketed as both a Civil War Pistol and a Cavalry Pistol. It sometimes came strapped to a card, sometimes in a plastic box with caps, and sometimes on a bubble-wrap card with a Sharp's carbine (coming soon to your local Almanack). It was part of the same set as the Marx Six Shooter. This is one I really wish they'd made as a full-size cap gun.

I gave you one like it a few years ago. How about a photo of it?

Like most of my arsenal, that one's in a box under a ton of other boxes in one of my storage units. Hopefully some archeologist will someday unearth it.
