This invention relates to toy guns, and its
principal object is to provide a toy gun having
means whereby to simulate the sound of an ex

cured across the hollow of the powder chamber
at its inner end, to prevent escape of the powder
at this end and a piece of gauze il or the like is
secured in the barrel adjacent its outer end to
prevent accidental escape of the powder. A small
