Big-Bang® Cannons produce a realistic FLASH and BANG. A mixture of gas (Bangsite® and water), fresh air and a spark produce the BANG. Every time before reloading, remove the Ignitor and blow into the Ignitor-opening so as to replace the burned gas from the last shot with fresh air for the next shot. Wash the used Bangsite® (lime sediment) out of the water chamber after firing session.
In 1907, an assistant professor of physics at Lehigh University patented the "Gas Gun" (patent no. 874,952...December 31, 1907). The value of this invention as a sane toy and a safe alternative to numerous consumer fireworks injuries became readily apparent. In 1912, we started manufacturing Big-Bang® Cannons - "Gas Cannon Company". "BIG-BANG" and "BANGSITE" are registered trademarks.
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. They've been a favorite from generation to generation. They're a safe alternative to consumer fireworks...a source of fun at all outdoor gatherings...a display piece and collector's item. Great for military games, celebrating and saluting. Parents approve.
