The Czechoslovakian Mars Astronaut Pistol

7 posts in this topic

This is a really nice gun from the Czech Republic. I always liked the litho on this gun, and it is a substantial toy; much heavier grade tin than most toys I own. It is a battery operated pistol and measures 6.5 inches long, it's in the database.

The gun is in excellent condition, but the box has some staining to it. The box is constructed from a much denser cardboard, which is probably why it is in such good shape.

 The manufacturing information is on a white panel along one side, and although most of the stamp ink has faded away, when I darkened the photo, it suddenly appeared, along with the date 1967.

The toy company's logo is printed alongside the operating instructions.

Nice pickup Brady. I like this litho version over the monochromatic version. Cool gun!

I read 1967 on the box. :scratchhead:

Yeah, 1967 is all I've got too.

The database cites '67 as well.

 

I wish someone could translate the instructions, they look pretty extensive for a tin toy.
