Lehigh University assistant professor of physics patented the "Gas Gun". Patent no. 874,952 dated December 31, 1907. Business started up in 1912 as Gas Cannon Company. The name was changed to Toy Cannon Works in 1916. Revised in 1924 to the current The Conestoga Company. Early models were breech loading. Automatic loading models introduced in 1935.
The appeal of a Big-Bang® Cannon is simple - a scale-model toy cannon that makes a loud bang and flash, but has no recoil or kick. A favorite from generation to generation. Safe alternative to consumer fireworks - Great fun at outdoor gatherings - Display piece & collector's item - Patriotic gift for special occasions or events. For Safe & Sane Celebrations.
Bangsite®, water and a spark create a BIG-BANG® and FLASH OF LIGHT. Bangsite® is pulverized calcium carbide - 100 shots per tube. Same water used for entire firing session - pour out front when done. Spark Plug is our specially made flint. Noise level comparable to an M-80 - see Decibel Chart. No Recoil or Kick. No Powder. No Matches. Safe and Sane.
