SPACE GUN - MAKER? - SPAINA hard plastic space gun with eccentric curved styling. One side is red and the other is yellow. There is a lightning bolt on both sides. It measures 5" 12cm long, and has a red transparent trigger. The short barrel widens considerably at the end and is tipped with a relatively large sight.

This "Zoomeray" style gun fires a transparent celluloid coil. When the trigger is pulled it pushes a firing rod out the back of the gun. When it reaches a certain point, it releases the spring loaded rod, which hits a similar plastic tack, with a wide head, attached to the center of the coil. The coil ejects about 2 inches from the barrel then returns instantly. I gives the impression of a red flash from the barrel.
