Product Description

A rare original pair of fairground side stall rifles…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of these pieces, we believe they would date to the latter part of the 20th century. Rifles of this ilk are iconic with travelling funfairs, used for their side stall target games. Some rifles or guns would have used corks, yet these particular two were used with metal pellets. These are authentic pieces from a fairground stall and are therefore being sold for display and collectable purposes only

We’ve also found two old steel stands that enable the guns to be displayed on, by simply pushing them in the hole underneath (where the guns would have originally been mounted to the side stall). Please note : These are not original to the items, we just thought they were cool to display the rifles…

We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scratches and scars, some paint loss and some tatty areas to the rifles, yet structurally they are great. Underneath the gun shows the small hole where the wiring would have been attached to the base of the side stall too. We feel the current condition simply adds to their charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections….

Please note : The rifle stands and stool are for decorative purposes only and are not included within this listing
