Does anybody know what this thing is exactly? It's got the words BIG BROTHER on the top. From what I've learned it's called A BIG BROTHER SIGNALLING DEVICE. Or something like that, maybe a flare gun, or tear gas pen of some kind?
Please see the pic, I only have just one photo of it.

I seem to recall these were used as a burglar alarm, but I am not 100% sure. It would be placed on a door or window and would fire a blank if the window or door was opened. Can you post more pictures.

Shreck, I wish I could but I only have that one picture. I couldn't even find any others anywhere on the internet. So you said it's a device for firing a blank, and used as sort of a perimeter alarm?

It is a double barrel tear gas pen launcher. It should have a cylinder which is the barrel.

They were used as a self defense weapon by shooting a cloud of tear gas at the attacker. Some are collectable, but I have no idea if this one is. You can find them at online auction sites for $200 right now, but they haven't sold.

The seller assured me several times over the phone and email, that this item is not an NFA controlled item. If it is or was, I sure as h*'ll don't want it, and never would have bought it. I did a little more digging and reading and the flares or tear gas cartridges are a solid unit screwed into the end of this thing. Meaning you cannot just load anything in the chamber and expect it fire, so that means it cannot possibly fire any bullet or anything similar. So in that case, it's no NFA item. Thank God. :eek:

Just out of curiosity, why would you buy something that you didn't know what it was?

Not saying this is the case, but I wouldn't doubt these could be made into a zip gun or something like that...

Well I suppose it could. So could parts at any hardware store as well. But that is not my intention for doing that. I just like neat little things like this.

Anybody know who made this thing? It's only got two words on it BIG BROTHER. I wonder what it's worth?

No offense intended, but your pictures suck! You need to take it outside and take your pictures in natural sunlight and keep it out of the shadows!
