A 14 ga greener makes a nice addition to any English gun collection. This greener police gun mark III/14 is a straight cased 14 1/2 gauge with standard firing pin.

Hello friends and neighbors// Outstanding snag/save... were you looking for the Greener,or is this a "look what I found". Either way very cool!

Strange for the Police to choose a single shot in the 1920s (or later), even using the strong Martiny style action.

Any Idea of the DOM?

Ran across it while looking for normal greeners and had to have it.

Never heard of a 14ga.... Learn something new everyday :)

I read an article by an Indian gun writer that the British chose a unigue gauge for the police guns so that rebels in India could not use stolen police ammunition in 12ga guns, or 12ga civilian ammo in stolen police guns. They apparently believed it unlikely that guns and ammo would be stolen together in quantity by revolutionaries.

A similar policy drives the gun laws of several foreign countries: civilians cannot own military caliber firearms in Mexico, for example, to help prevent another revolution supported by theft of ammo from military arsenals.
