This cap gun is 11 1/2 inches in length In uncap fired condition. The toy gun works whether you fan it or pull the trigger and the cylinder rotates correctly and the gun fires. The cap gun is in excellent condition with no play wear that I can see and doesn’t look to me like it was ever cap fired. The extractor works well. The loading gate stays shut tight and the grips are fine. The scroll work on the barrel is striking. This Nichols cap gun uses the two-piece Bullets and Mattel Greenie Stik-M-Caps or Nichols Tophand Round caps. Caps available on this website. Capgun was made in Jacksonville, Tx.
