|Buck Rogers XZ-31 Rocket Pistol, Daisy Mfg. Co., USA, 1934|
This is the first raygun ever produced as a toy. Call it the origin, number one or whatever else you may fancy. All I know was it made a big bang (lol) right from the start and sold in great numbers when it was launched in 1934. Now, it is still making "BANG"' 80 years later... Read more about the story of this toy here.
|The cocking mechanism is quite special, but still works after all this time !|

|Atomatic Rayguns, HR Productions, United Kingdom, 1950's|
Fins ? Check !
Atomic power supply ? Well, duhhhh... it's in the name.
I already had a transparent red one in my collection (see here), now these 3 join the club !
|These fins are futuristic, streamlined and fishy... all in one !|
This is one of the more uncommon rayguns. Not a lot known about it, except that you fill it through the front lens piece.
When pulling the trigger, the little red barrel retracts and water squirts out.
Simple, effective weapon of choice for any kid close to a bucket of water or a swimming pool !
