Parris Manufacturing Co. history

Parris Manufacturing Company, already expert in woodworking, was asked by the Department of Defense to make dummy training rifles for new recruits to use until real rifles could be made available.  More than 2 million of these training rifles were made for the Army and Navy and the Company earned the coveted Army-Navy "E" Award for its contribution to the war effort.

After the war was over, the company switched its production lines over to manufacturing toy rifles and pistols.  These toy guns were made with the same skill and care that the company had used in making the Army and Navy training rifles.  Parris Manufacturing Company officials did not want to manufacture only military toy guns, so they quickly added frontier and cowboy style rifles, pistols and pistol holster sets.

Parris continues to expand its quality made toy product line.  Products include a full line of toy bow and arrow sets, our new camouflage bow & arrow sets,  Kids Klassic Kostumes and Kids Outdoors Sports Costumes for everyday play and special occasions.  We have also added camouflage to some of our Frontier & Western Rifles and pistols.
