Deluxe Shooting Wand by Abbott’s(c. 1938,1987) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
They don’t make them like this anymore! Abbott’s started making high end shooting wands or Bang Wands c. 1938. I believe this one comes from c. 1987 because it has gold tips and the earlier wands had chrome plated tips. But it could be earlier. It is easily the heaviest and most substantial Bang Wand I have ever handled. For a brief moment I thought it was an Owen’s wand as it looks very similar to the Owen’s wands (see final photo), but it is not stamped Owen’s, the tips are slightly shorter, I could not find a Wand like this from Owen’s and finally it clearly matches the Abbott’s description.
Effect: Here is an accessory that can be used in conjunction with many tricks in your show. It is a precision made article which will last a lifetime. A special lacquer finish is used on the center section of the wand. The wand is 14″ long and 1/2″ in diameter, and weights 15oz. The tips are 2″ long and are highly polished brass.
The shooting device is just like a rifle. It has a heavy steel barrel. It is foolproof. It requires no special license as the Shooting Wand will shoot only .22 blank cartridges. It will not accept actual cartridges. This wand will “shoot apart” a paper bag just like a regular blank cartridge revolver.
Note: This prop is not a toy and should be handled with respect and caution.
