Looking For PD's With Vintage Tear Gas Guns For SalePolice Department Tear Gas
Posted 23 September 2012 - 08:48 PM
Since purchasing the 201-Z, I have received inquiries from 2 others with similar interests who would like to acquire Tear Gas guns for their collections. I also know several others who share these interests. We are collectors, and more than likely will never shoot the guns, but instead will study and display them in our collections.
I'd like to put a general callout to other law enforcement agencies who may have old Federal Laboratories Tear Gas Guns, or Lake Erie Chemical Company Tear Gas Guns, or any other similar vintage devices that may be available for sale. If I don't purchase them myself, I can probably put your department in contact with a collector who will give the item a good home. In these days of stretched municipal budgets, it could be a way to help fund needed items by disposing of old equipment that is probably no longer used.
Please feel free to contact me at the e-mail address below, and I will see what I can do to put you in contact with an interested buyer.

Just in case anyone has not seen this...I know folks today who are looking for Fed Labs gas guns...particularly the Pittsburgh marked guns. If you are a PD who wants to sell one, or if you know someone who has one, and might consider selling it, they would go to good (collector) homes...

As a side note, I finally closed the deal on a nice Navy Overstamp, a period L drum and period XX mags.
All of it was still owned by the original PD that purchased the Navy in 1934.
The cased gas gun was the first posting in the Tear Gas Gun Section in 2010. A Blast From The Past.
It's been a long time coming.

Just noticed this thread, any special license for one of the fed lab tear guns? I had always assumed all tear gas guns were not legal? Thanks

The guns themselves are under the same control as flare guns.

Low end, maybe $250, and high, maybe $450. It depends if it has a case, and condition. I put a buyer and seller together at $350 recently for a Fed Labs Pittsburgh 1.5" in good very good condition without case within the past year.
