Erie Factory Prototype Model #1022
Louis Marx Co.

A little over 10 inches in length and cast in solid yellow plastic, this hollow, prototype flashlight gun was made in halves and then glued together. The red barrel is marbled and the trigger and front sight are solid red. It appears that the front sight acted as a release mechanism for the hinged rear section of the gun which swings down to reveal a cavity for two batteries. This gun is identified by a model number and date which are handpainted on the butt of the gun (see below).
