Re: INFO ON WEAPONS
THESE ARE VERY RARE - WWII - Military MP Tear Gas Baton. Marked "Federal Laboratories Inc. Pittsburg, PA U.S.A." Totally legal and all original. No Serial Number. Approx 9-1/2" long and weighs approx 2 pounds. Screws apart for loading. Armed by pulling cocking button at the back. Fired by pushing protected trigger button on the side. (protection cover slides forward to expose trigger button to fire, slides back to cover it) These were used during WWII by MP's and in Military prisons, and in prisoner of War camps here in the U.S. After WWII they were used by major prisons like Attica, Levenworth, Sing-Sing, Folsom, and the like. Still in use today in some small town jails.
Value would be between $600 - $700 to the right collector.
