SOLD SOLD (12/12) Post WW1 British Greener Mark I/14, Special 14 Bore Egyptian Police Contract Martini Action Riot Shotgun. Sn 14604 - 14604
After WW1 the Egyptian Government sought a weapon suitable for arming their Police Force. W.W. Greener of Birmingham won the contract with their submission of a handy, smoothbore Martini actioned shotgun with a full length wood stock. These shotguns were known as the Greener Mark I/14. The "14" referred to the bore size. One of the clever features of the new shotgun was that it used an off size 14 1/2 gauge straight sided shot shell. This prevented the weapon's use with commercially available shotgun shells. Thus, if the weapon fell into the wrong hands, it couldn't be used against the Egyptian Police. Greener referred to this cartridge as "14 bore for use in Mark I guns". These cartridges were made by Kynoch. Most were loaded with smokeless powder, but some have been noted with black powder loads. By 1922, over 30,000 Greeners had been supplied to the Egyptian Government. This is a very good original example of the Greener Mark I/14, 14 Bore Egyptian Police Contract Martini Action Shotgun. It measures 42” overall with a 25 ¼” round steel barrel which has a clean smooth bore. It has the correct full stock with single barrel band and sling swivel. The all original wood has just knocks, bumps and bruises to be expected with age and service use. It has a brass butt plate with trap, brass bead fore sight and notched action block rear sight. The right side of the shotgun has a safety catch lever which works correctly. The left side plate has faint marks ‘W.W. Greener Maker 19517/21 (Patent Number)’. The breech block has Egyptian script markings and is marked ‘Greener Special Bore’. The underside of the frame is stamped ‘14214’. The lever and trigger guard are stamped with Egyptian Government 'EG' marks. The weapon’s Martini loading and firing actions work perfectly.
