RAF Spitfire Brass Gun Button

An early RAF Spitfire / Hurricane Fighter, Dunlop Brass Gun Button.

This original wartime 'working' gun button would have been part of the pilots control column 'spade' grip (see last photo of an early mark Spitfire cockpit).

The rotating collar allows the button to be depressed in the 'fire' position, and Not when turned to 'safe'.

Stamped on the reverse with Dunlop part and inspection numbers.

The button barrel part will unscrew to allow fitment to a grip casting if so desired.

Complete with full length brass air tubes.

In a very good 'used' condition with various knocks and wear marks (see photos).
