Caliber .38 blanks, Barrel length is 20". Made by W.W. Greener Ltd. Gunmakers of Birmingham (England), the Greener Light Harpoon Gun is designed for fishing and line launching. It functions by sliding a hollow harpoon over the barrel which is propelled by firing a specially made .38 Special high powered blank. The entire gun has a hard chrome lining for corrosion resistance. The harpoon gun was of a take-down design, and packed away into a specially made wooden case that contained the rifle, blank ammunition, harpoons, rope, detachable line holder and cleaning kit. The rifle design is based on that of the sporting rifles that W.W. Greener manufactured which were in turn based on the Martini-Henry rifle. This set was featured in the block buster film "Jaws" and a couple of people might remember it from the movie "Waterworld". This set is complete with all line, blanks, projectiles, etc and housed in the original wooden green carry case. Gun is in near new condition. While not the normal type of firearm, it is definitely the type of weapon that will get attention in your gun room. Case has two full boxes of blanks, six original bundles of line, cleaning accessories. Features the satin - nickel finish with stainless steel barrel to prevent rust on the open seas. Has a beautiful walnut varnish stock with rubber recoil pad. Complete cleaning kit. Three spear point harpoons are included. About as mint of an example of this complete set one could hope to find.
