Product Details

Product name Toy Cork Gun
Description The words, "Gun Fighter," appear in silver on each side of the double-barreled toy cork shotgun. The stock is colored brown, the gun barrels are black and the chocking lever is chrome-colored plastic. The toy gun is identified as product no. 97-S-510, which appears on the toy gun's package. 
Problem Serious eye injury could occur if a child abuses the toy by removing the muzzle end of the gun barrel, exposing the ends of two metal rods covered with plastic plunger caps. These caps can be removed by a force of three or four pounds, leaving the ends of the metal rods completely exposed. If the toy gun is chocked and discharged, the exposed ends of the metal rods could then be propelled forward into a child's face or eyes.
