In the lower, left hand corner: "Copyright 1950 Miles Kimball Company".

 

This page, specifically:

The Flash Ray Gun by a yet-to-be-determined manufacturer (a Goggle search yielded this image and I believe it to be the same one as in this catalog):

While really just an aluminum flashlight with a pistol grip and trigger, the description promotes it as a "ray gun".

 

 

In 1936 The Flash Ray Gun was marketed this way:

Brian..

This is the plain metal flashlight gun, but if you recall, Miles Kimball called it a ray gun emitting  "Death rays to Buck Rogers fans". On sale in October 1948 in the Robesonian. Who made it?
