Ray-Line Star Trek Tracer Gun Sell Sheets

Ray-Line Star Trek Tracer Gun Sell Sheets

Not only did I have a lot of fun with these as a kid (probably still disks in the carpet of my old house) but as a teen, I would trade the abundant overstock found in every toy store in Canada during the 1980s to trade for cool toys with US dealers. I love you Rayline!

I don’t own any of these toys now, heck I’d settle for the extra ammo…

I do not remember the rifle but I wish that i did, it looks fantastic.

    How far did those things shoot? I remember in the 80s there was always one of those guns on sale in drugstores (maybe there still is) but just generic packaging, nothing about Star Trek.

    I still have the rifle, I do not remember if was a "Star Trek" branded rifle.
    I got it in the 70's, it's been knocking around ever since. Lucky for it, it survived my Grandmother's obsession with throwing things out. She didn't throw the stuff that looked like junk. She would throw out the toys I was trying to save. That was long before she was trying to throw out her jewelry(the stuff that was worth real money).

    I do not remember how far it shot, but it did have a pretty good range.

    I had the pistol type one way back in the early '80s. I don't remember any ST packaging, best I remember it was just a generic blister pack.

    Best I can remember it shot about 20ft/6m or so. Maybe a bit better, I shot it mostly inside the house to keep from losing the disks so there wasn't a great deal of open space there.

    For anyone who's curious why the Tracer-Gun looks disturbingly like a real gun, that's because it's modelled on one: the fiendishly elegant Whitney Wolverine.


    Both the grip and the pull-back loading mechanism are almost line-for-line off the Wolverine. Some liberties were taken for upper slide-housing and the front-of-trigger magazine loading system.

    That dark metallic coloured plastic is… *happy sigh*. They don't make toys like this anymore for entirely too many well-intentioned reasons.

    Not for the first time, Plaid Stallions has reminded this Anon despite the stunning advancements our society makes in technology, we seem to be losing other things just as valuable.

    There are still cap and pellet guns being made in metallic colors. Check out Edison Giocattoli's website: http://www.edisongiocattoli.it/eng/home.html

    Oh wow. <3 Technically, these are waaay beyond just rack toys or even the fancier stuff at(the now long-gon) Child World. EG is a fascinating look at what Europeans buy when they can't buy the real thing.

    On the plus-side, I'm glad to see at least somebody out there is still making, selling, and buying these kinds of toys. Nowadays, even these little guys are an endangered species in the USA.

    Hmmm, I don't recall the jet disc Tracer scope rifle from any episode, must be in a deleted scene somewhere
