Greener Humane Horse Killer By Greener, London
8/18/2016 - Firearms and Accoutrements: Live Salesroom Auction
.310 Caliber, Marketed to those who worked with livestock, the Humane Horse Killer was purpose-built for putting down injured or sick horses. When collapsed, the Horse Killer measures 6 1/2 inches long, with military proofs on the muzzle and the London/Birmingham address on the tube. Opened up, the pistol measures 10 1/2 inches long, with the brass end cap serving (and marked) as the mallet for striking the spring loaded firing pin. The face of the muzzle is slanted, to provide optimum angle for the projectile to pass through the brain, and the outer casing doubles as an expansion chamber. Birmingham proofed breech and barrel

Condition:  
Fine, with most of the original blue finish, showing mild spotting and handling marks overall. The brass shows a well aged mustard brown patina, with dents on the end cap appropriate to use. Mechanically very good.
