SUPER MACHINE GUN - YONEZAWA - JAPANA large lithographed tin space machine gun. A rather serious looking gun with perforated double barrels and a wood effect stock. Yonezawa didn't do many space guns and it is interesting to see that they're trying to compete with the Nomura range of these realistic looking guns. There is little of space interest on the gun itself: Super Gun, ATOM wording and an eagle on the stock. The box art compensates with a lively scene of Space Patrol astronauts. Friction action with noise and spark. Date?Aug 31, 2014

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.
