Gloss:
The "Bulls-Eye" pistols were produced in Rawlins, Wyoming. Designed by Dr. Claude Bunten and patented on February 26, 1924, these pistols used rubber bands to launch their small No. 6 lead projectiles. They were repeaters (58 shots in a magazine), reputedly very accurate at close ranges, and had fully adjustable sights. The use of metal stampings made them easy and inexpensive to produce. They were sold in America by Abercrombie & Fitch, Marshall Field, and A.F. Stoeger Arms.
