    Re: HUBLEY "STAR" REUNITED

    Wow it is great to see such love for old toys here! This post got me to thinking. Believe that I have one that is largely intact minus only a few minor parts. Found it while metal detecting around the remains of an old one room county school. Thought I was rather skunked on that day because that was it for the whole afternoon not a single coin. If I recall right the toy gun is not very large. And it has a bulls head with horns on the handle. What is the approximate age of these toy guns?

    The Hubley Star originally had a nickel finish, and was popular enough that they were made for a duration of 10 years .. from 1955-1965.

    This is the one cap gun was found out by a falling down one room school house. Not sure if this gun ever had any nickel plate tho. Does this look like the 1955 to 1965 model?

    Yours looks like a Hubley Tex, made from 1955 -1960. It should measure about 5 3/4 inches long by 2.5 inches high, and should say TEX on the other side. The construction is two piece die cast metal and it originally had a bright silver finish .. not sure if it was nickel plated .. but it was a shiny silver originally.

    Nice little gun!
