Benbros Zebra Toys

Bronco Gun

In the Zebra Toys range Benbros included two toy guns, one of which was the Bronco which was described as having a 100 shot repeater action.

 

The casting of the gun involved several pieces including the internal mechanism. Above the trigger 'Bronco' was cast. As usual with toy guns it could be opened for access to the cartridge and to enable caps to be loaded. It is not known if it was supplied with 'bullets'.

 

The Bronco Gun was painted with a chrome finish and had a red or possibly white plastic stock. 

 

As with all Zebra Toys, the box carried the black & white stripe colours and the usual trademark logo. A drawing of the gun on a colourful background was printed on both faces. The sides and end-flaps were blue with some description of the model and on the end-flaps the Benbros name.

 

Being a scarce toy, knowledge of the Bronco Gun is limited. Mint examples in boxes are very rare.
