    My collection of Marx Toy Peacemakers

    Here are some toy Peacemakers I have picked up over the years. They were made by Marx in the 1960s and are cap guns. There are two Buntlines in the photo; a blue with white grips and a gold with black grips. The box to the right is the original box for the gold buntline. The ones below the box are still on the original issue cards as sold by Marx. There is a sheriff's model near the bottom that was altered by my friend Keith Cochran whose books on Colt Peacemakers are on most serious SAA collector's bookshelves. There is a 'gunfighter' modification on the bottom left that has the front of the triggerguard removed and the barrel shortened. The one on the bottom right has grips made of leather. Those two were modified by another friend who at one time was a champion fast draw artist. I couldn't find it to photo but he also put one on a slab of elk antler and made a bolo tie with it. (And no, they did not give them to me, they made me buy them!) Thanks for looking.....

    That's a pretty cool collection. I'll bet it's a huge conversation piece!
    Stay safe,

    What a great collection! I can't recall that one from the 60's and I had various toy guns. Can you post a close up of one.
    Can you tell me which one this was that was my favorite. It looked like an engraved, ivory handle 1860 Colt. It had a loading lever but it also had a loading gate like a conversion. It was big and very high quality and I think was double action.

    Close ups

    Here are a couple of close ups of one I had on the loose. It is not mint and has some finish wear. They were break open and took a round cap about 1/4" in diameter. The hammer is spring loaded and you pulled the hammer back and released it to fire the cap. The ones that got used have corrosion around the cap area from the powder. I have seen the cap gun you are referring to but do not know the name, but it may have been called COLT 45. A couple others that are big collector items and full size (?) are called FANNER and STALLION. The Stallion was made by Nichols. Maybe you could EBay or google those names and find the one you remember. Thanks.

    I would have loved one of these as a kid. The gun I asked about did say Colt .45 on it as I recall.

    I googled "toy gun Colt .45" and the first site posted had it. A Hubley. It still looks cool now. I lost it and was devasated as a little kid over that.
