I understand they were built by Quick Manufacturing,the same company that made Springfields and some earlier Toros.Now this was something I found on line and am not sure how accurate it is.

:bigrofl: That's exactly what I told him in another post. I looked online last night for about an hour and a half and that's all I could find. I believe that it's accurate, because the early Toros, the Springfields, and the Penfields have that same "oddball" front axle.

I have to speak up because I have one just like that branded Gilson, and I have several Springfields and a Toro. I am not certain on manufacture but the Gilson is way overkill compared the the Springfields, however, they do have very similar components. I consider it a Springfield in a massive disguise. I will check mine a little tomorrow and get back to you what my original decals left alone on the chassis say.
