BUCK ROGERS U-235 ATOMIC PISTOL - DAISY MFG - USA

This is the fifth and last Buck Rogers space gun produced by Daisy in 1945. The name Atomic on the box and stamped into the sides and reflects the popular fascination with the new science. Uranium 235 was widely discussed in 1945. The gun was on sale in late 1946. The gun is 10.5" and was available in either a silver colored steel or a black finish steel. Yellow and black box.

The new feature of this gun was its ability to repeatedly make a loud pop and produce a spark simply by pulling the trigger. No cocking of the gun was necessary.

Function: Pop gun action with spark effect.

A patent for this version was filed as early as 1935 and published in 1937.
