Blast From The Past

In 1907, an assistant professor of physics at Lehigh University patented the "Gas Gun" (patent no.874,952...December 31, 1907). Originally called the Gas Cannon Company, in 1916 the name was changed to Toy Cannon Works. In 1924, the name was changed to The Conestoga Company. Early models were breech loading. Automatic loading started in 1935.


Big-Bang Theory

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...a unique gift for special occasions.


FAQ Answers
