futuristic looking bolt action rifle that fired car like projectiles at the stack of barrels that came with it.The cars clipped into cases that ejected when you opaned the bolt to re-load.had a fold down foot that acted as a safety catch so you were only supposed to be able to fire whilst lying on the floor, didn't really work.The rifle was white with red,white and blue stickers and came with 2 cars 1 red and 1 blue.It was also available later as repeating richochet which could fire 3 cars one after the other.The rifle and cars were black with glow in the dark parts.

Awesome toy with which you could fire a car from the gun at a pile of small plastic barrels. The best bit was that you could easily bypass the safety mechanism (which was there to ensure you only fired the gun once it was safely placed on the floor) and shoot your sister at point-blank range in the head.

I had a piderman version of the gun. It was yellow and red. It also came with a ramp that you were then able to fire the cars up and through a spiders web that was attached to it. It came with some spidermaqn stickers that you could personalise your car and gun with. Brilliant toy that was up there with my evel knieval stunt bike!!

I had one of these and as others have said bypassed the safety devices so I could fire the cars and then dried peas when it wasn't on the floor. Memory was that the cars were poorly made so by Boxing Day one had broken after hitting the skirting board and the other didn't last much longer.
