ATOMIC JET GUN - DCMT CRESCENT TOYS - ENGLAND

Red aluminium version of the Hiller Ray Gun. DCMT have reworked the Hiller. The most obvious difference is the much longer cylinder reservoir that gave many more shots for a fill of water. The gun has been provided with a separate barrel nozzle: it extends directly from the water reservoir. The trigger is now a separate and much shorter structure. The reasons for the change are unclear but it is characteristic of English toy companies that they reworked space guns, they did not just reuse molds.

Two box versions, one with DCMT label, the other with a Crescent Toys lable. Date: mentioned in 1949 Lincolnshire Echo 22/9/1949 P4
