Bang Rifle. Pasadena, Carl Williams Custom Magic, ca. 1990. An elaborate version of the comedy gag known as the "Bang Gun," when the trigger of this modified Daisy air rifle is pulled, a cloth banner with the word "BANG" printed in block letters falls from the barrel. Fewer than 20 examples manufactured. Hallmarked. Good condition. The first customer for this bang rifle was Charles Schultz, creator of Peanuts, who commissioned Williams to build it for a touring ice show featuring the Peanuts characters. The gun's banners are interchangeable.
