Game Keeper's, 12 Bore Blank Shotgun Cartridge, Trip Wire 'Alarm Gun'. MISC 851 - MISC 851

This complete Victorian / Edwardian Era Gamekeeper's alarm gun was used to warn Gamekeepers of the presence of Poachers on Estates or outbuildings. Several variants were available in the period. This alarm consists of a 33 ½” long, ¼” square iron bar which is mounted with the loading mechanism, hammer weight and release trigger / hook holed for trip wire. It has its original breech plate chain and breech plate with firing pin. The spike end of the bar would be inserted in the ground and a trip wire stretched from the release hook at the top of the bar to some immoveable object such as a tree stump or gate. The bottom mount would be preloaded with a 12 bore blank shotgun cartridge and the breech plate with pin placed on top providing a firing chamber. The release hook would hold the top weight in place until released by an intruder tripping over the wire. The weight would drop and strike the breech plate discharging the blank round. The alarm is painted red & has even patina consistent with age and no rust. There are no visible manufacturer or date marks on this alarm. Price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique alarm gun no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. MISC 851
