Polish toy cannon
« on: Monday 07 September 2020, 06:22 pm »
Hello everyone, my first post here.

My dear father recently passed away, and I inherited one of his favorite possesions from his childhood sometime after WW2.
It's a metal toy cannon with a very stiff spring that can be pulled back, and a spike that shoots out.

According to my mother they used to fire some kind of exploisve "caps" or packages with this.

I would very much like to know what those caps were, as I really, really want to be able fire it again.

Does anyone recognise this? The cannon may have been built by hand especially for my dad, I am not sure about that though.

Not sure how to attach images! Will try to add
