The Air Raid Warning Signal Pistol by Marx was made in the late 1950s. Utilizing the same tools and dies as the Flash Gordon Signal Pistol made a few years before, it is one of the many examples of how Marx reused and reissued popular toy forms over and over. Like the Flash Gordon gun, this one is fabricated of sheet metal, and produces a siren-like noise and shoots sparks when the trigger is pulled. Length 6.5 inches.
