ATOMIC WATER GUN (BICYCLE WATER PISTOL) - RELIABLE PLASTICS CO - CANADA

A hard plastic brass tipped space water gun, a cross between a pistol and a more classic shape with rings on the muzzle and ribs on the side. 8" 16cm . This gun has a small enclosed trigger. The gun has a ball lever extending down in front of the trigger. This would fit into a clamp and allow the gun to be fixed to a bicycle's handlebars. There is an R in a circle molded into the side. There are several color versions.

First sighting is currently in the 1954 Reliable Plastic Toy catalog. The gun is an adaptation of the Atomic Water Pistol that came out the year before. Sold in a polythene bag with a header card.
