Lead into temptation
I knew it would be a mistake to go to the Game Fair with Mr FM - look what he forced me to buy.
An old W W Greener GP. This is a single shot 12 bore shotgun with a Martini action. It is based on the Police Gun WW used to produce in odd calibres for the Egyptian Police. I am writing to young Mr Greener to get a date from the serial number but I guess it is a 1930s gun. The action of sliding a shell in is as smooth and sweet as stroking Charlize Theron's thighs covered in Silkolene. But she kicks like hell when you pull the trigger. I will have to put a few more through to get used to the action, and the automatic safety. But it feels lovely, and I can see why they were used as police guns; indestructible, simple, easy to load in the dark or without looking and if I heard that big clunk as the block is dropped back into place I would obey the man.
And the best thing - this old beauty came with a spare barrel, in a full choke, all for £65!
UPDATE - And I have found the instruction manual on the web so it has now been cleaned and given some TLC - Greener GP/EG/Police Gun Disassembly/Instructions
