Vintage Marx Toy Flashing Machine Gun. Lights, Sound and Motion work perfect!
Vintage Marx Toy Flashing Machine Gun from early 1960s. Battery operated, tripod mounted, recoiling machine gun by Marx, complete and in good used condition. The toy comes with its original swiveling tripod with aluminum reinforced leg brackets. The legs consist of three, 18" painted tubular steel rods with plastic pod feet. The bolt which mounts the gun to the tripod is also original. This is a "life-size" electric machine gun modeled after the U.S. Army's air cooled .50 cal weapon. It's all hard styrene plastic, painted black and green camouflage and is detachable from the tripod. It has a recoiling barrel and simultaneously produces a loud staccato noise with flashing light. It has a pair of soft plastic hand grips with a very realistic thumb activated trigger. Best of all every function works beautifully!
Only issue is the battery cover does not lock in place. A small piece of tape keeps it secure. Size: 32 x 29 x 17 high assembled. Weight: approx. 3 lbs.
