I just picked up a nice gun; the Souper Comet (and yes, that is how it's marked) F-R-933 atomic gun. Ok, well, the words "atomic gun" don't actually appear on the toy, I just took a little journalistic license to punch up the story line. Anyway, this is yet another of those borderline machine/space guns, like the Flashy-Ray, Space Ruler and the Radar-Ray. It was made in Greece, but bears no other markings than the name and the number K16, possibly the model number.

It is made from fairly thin plastic, and it's a miracle it has survived all these years (not to mention the shippers shoddy packing ). What impresses me even more, aside from the fact that even the interior workings are also plastic (yup, every gear and rod, except the spinning flint wheel), is the heights that this toy tries to attain...it has all the bells an whistles.
This is not only a sparkling gun, but it is a rat-a-tat, ack-ack gun as well...the twin barrels reciprocate independently!

That's a lot of action for an all plastic gun. Oh, and did I mention the rotating drum magazine and flip-up sight?!

I just wish it had some stars, or rockets or something else ray gun-ish molded into the design, even some stickers would add a little more panasche to this gun.
Oh, and it's a really good size too; 24 inches!

Either way, I still like it.
