A cap gun is a toy gun that creates a loud sound simulating a gunshot and a puff of smoke when the trigger is pulled. Cap guns were originally made of cast iron, but after World War II were made of zinc alloy, and most newer models are made of plastic. Many of our capguns, made by Parris, feature die-cast metal construction of some or all parts. Others incorporate solid wood and steel.
Cap guns get their name from the small discs of shock-sensitive explosive compounds that provide the noise and smoke, effectively the same as the separate percussion cap primers used in real guns of the mid to late 1800s, although invariably smaller and made from plastic or paper rather than soft metal. Some caps are arranged in plastic rings of eight or twelve. There are also single caps, roll caps, and disk caps, all of which are actually extremely small versions of percussion fireworks.
