Warden - Made by: T J Harrington & Co Ltd. of Magda Works, Walton on Thames, Surrey (Company lifespan 1930 - mid 1990s)

 

The same guys made the Gat air pistol 

 

Also made the Magda DingDong using the same one-piece band and pouch.

That's a neat old frame. Have any idea when this one was made?

TBH - I can't find much - They company is well known for their fishing gear and air guns, but disappeared in the mid 90's. 

 

Don't think it was a great success generally. The one-piece band was overly heavy draw with not so fantastic performance (same deal with the Magda - a futuristic looking wrist support design). From the styling I'd think anywhere 50-70's - possibly around the same time of the Deadshot catapults. The Pat application no. suggests mid 50's (54).

That is cool Matt. I have a Magda Ding Dong. I'll have to dig her out and post a few pics.

Get it posted! I've seen one on Ebay here a while ago.
