  B.C.M Space Outlaw Gun 1
The Space Outlaw has a complex and "busy" design. It is a diecast capgun made by B.C.M. in the 1960s. The barrel recoils each time the trigger is pulled. The gun also was produced in black and nickle plated versions. The basic design was also rebadged in the 1960s as a "BatMan" gun, probably because of it's gothic feel. Length 9 3/4". c1960

Very interesting e-mail and picture from an informed reader (address hidden):


Hi Chris

Great site, I am retired ex.BCM employee. Company was named after three directors, Richard Brown, Duncan Campbell, and Stan Munton.Now all deceased and company no longer trading, original Trading Name was "OUTLAW" The space outlaw was first made in the mid 1950's but was way before it's time,and not very popular. It was withdrawn from the range, to be re-introduced in the 1960's at the time of the" Space Race" and this time was a must with the young budding astronauts.Our company used to export to Japan and the space gun No.A10 in our range was copied and made into a plastic water pistol. Through successful legal proceedings the company managed to have all the tooling confiscated partly because it was being marketed as the "Space Outlaw" our registered name. I only ever remember the toy being made in silver (vacuum metalised) or nickel coated but don't remember any "batman" connections.

Regards Paul.


THANKS PAUL! It was great to get info like that it all helps keep the history accurate - many thanks indeed.
