REX MARS PLANET PATROL RIFLE X-92 - MARX - USAAt 20 inches long the Rex Mars Planet Patrol Space Gun is a fair size as rifles/machine guns go. The piece consists of a sheet of brightly lithographed tin, rolled into a semi-tube shape, and attached to a plastic butt and barrel assembly. This gun has been recycled excessively throughout the 1950's, it was used with slight litho changes for the Tom Corbett Space Cadet Gun, and the Rex Mars Planet Patrol Space Gun as well as an earlier G-Man type machine gun. Versions exist with various combinations of red, blue and yellow plastic components.

The plastic is held in place with a fragile set of pins that extend through the tin and are melted into rivets, these are almost always broken off. The barrel is a clockwork sparkler housed in a plastic casing, the key is frequently missing, while the cheap plastic, is temperature sensitive and the end of the barrel is most often badly warped into a sad droopy affair. The generating coils on top of the gun, a futuristic touch, rust easily and will crush into the gun if dropped. X-92.
