Blitz Slaughter Pistol


SKU: AH19-0123 Categories: , , Tags: , ,


A captive bolt device is a humane way to slaughter animals ranging from small pigs to a bull. A captive retracting ‘bolt’ is fired into the head, instead of a bullet. Different strength cartridges are used for different sized animals (see list below). It is imperative that the correct charge is used for the animal being destroyed. The shot is discharged by pressure on the trigger mechanism. The correct point for entry of the bolt is between and slightly above the eyes.
