    Our local Humane Soc has a gun they want our club to help sell.
    It's a single shot (with cocking hammer) 32 gauge special. The barrel is rifled.

    I have never seen anything like this?

    It does say on one side:

    Cap-Chur powder projector
    palmer chemical & equipment co. inc
    douglasville, georgia, usa

    Please help if you have any knowledge of this firearm????

    Thx BILL

    Sounds like a special purpose gun made to kill cattle, tranquilize animals, throw a flare, or you name it. An interesting gun for a collector. I'll buy it if they will put a price on it.

    Would have figured it would be worth more, but it appears to be on par or slightly less valuable than any other run of the mill NEF/H&R break action.

    It's a tranquilizer gun as Eightbore suspected. They are currently available through Palmer Chemical & Equipment Co. There should be a chamber insert that hold a .22 rimfire blank (think stud gun power load) used to launch the tranq dart. I've used one to tranquilize a tame cougar that somebody abandoned and wound up in the middle of a residential neighborhood. We didn't know it was tame until after we captured it. I wasn't willing to find out the hard way either.
