Lone Star Dan Dare Raygun Space Gun Pistol.
As used by Dan Dare in the 'Eagle' comic. Made by DCMT - (Die Cast Machine Tools Ltd (DCMT) trading as Lone Star in the United Kingdom. 1950s Dan Dare Ray Gun. Fires the usual roll of caps loaded by pressing the button on side of body to release the mechanism, enabling loading, it is thought to emit smoke from the barrel, although I have not tried this. Made entirely of diecast metal. It is usually found red with silver air brushed main body , this one is a kind of pinky red with a solid shiny colour all over with Dan Dare accented in gold, possibly rarer than the red and silver one which appears more often. I believe there is also a blue version. 7.5 inches/19 cms long. It is very difficult to find one of these in perfect condition, they usually have paint chips as can be seen on mine, although they can be a lot worse.
