BUCK ROGERS SONIC RAY GUN - NORTON-HONER - USABlack plastic battery operated flashlight space gun that also makes buzzing sound-7-1/2". This is the first appearance of this long-lived space gun design. The gun had a long run.

Two box variations are shown; the die-cut version is also a 1953 innovation. Maker's name varies: some are Norton-Honer Mfg. Co., others are Commonwealth Utilities Co. Box. The gun has been seen in a Buck Rogers comic strip for 9/22/1948.

Note: In 1951 Marx had released its own in house version of the pre-war rocket.

They released the rocket with "Flash Gordon" printed behind the pilot's head and on the wing.
