ATOMIC OUTER SPACE AIR RAY GUN - AIDS INC - USA

A metallic gold plastic variation of the Budson original air blaster gun design. You cock the gun by raising and lowering the fin on top, this draws back a metal disk in the center of the rubber. When you pull the trigger, the disk releases and the volume of air in the chamber is compressed through the narrow barrel delivering a formidable invisible blast. Box?

Aids Inc produced several variations of this design. See the Supersonic Defender Gun and Scorpion Hip Gun. On sale in October 1957. The gun appears in the Miles Kimball catalog for 1958.

Made by Aids Incorporated, out of El Segundo, California

A patent was granted in 1949 Pat No. 154516 Inventor Thomas M Shelton
