This model is the AHI C.B.109 Cowboy Riders Set in various colours.

The set has three hoses with riders, each approximately 47mm in length and 42mm in height. They are molded in one piece that includes the figures and base stand.

The first rider is dressed in black hat, yellow neckerchief, red shirt, black belt, tan trousers and black boots and sits astride a brown horse with blue saddle blanket. The horse's reins and bridle are painted black, as is the cowboy's lasso and the gun in his right hand. The base stand is green.

The second rider is dressed in black hat, red neckerchief, yellow shirt, black belt, black trousers and brown boots and sits astride a white horse with blue saddle blanket. The horse's reins and bridle are painted brown, as is the cowboy's lasso and the gun in his right hand is black. The base stand is green.

The third rider is dressed in black hat, red neckerchief, blue shirt, black belt, tan trousers and black boots and sits astride a black horse with grey saddle blanket. The horse's reins and bridle are painted brown, as is the cowboy's lasso and the gun in his right hand is black. The base stand is green.

The base stands and figures have no manufacturer's mark or country of origin details.

The item comes in the distinctive green cardboard packaging associated with this brand of toys and the flat tray has clear cellophane wrapped all around it. The cellophane is split and torn but has never been removed from the package. The green card carries a white panel on each end and the left hand end has "C.B. 109" in blue text on it. The front and rear sides have "Tru-size Metal [AHI logo] Miniature Figures" in large white lettering centred in the middle of the side and "Patent No 181733-181827" in smaller text below this to the left of the tray side. The bottom of the tray is white with green lettering that lists the available sets (as shown in photo).

I do not know exactly when this item was issued but it would have been between 1950 and the early 1960s.
