Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available.US Navy Firing Key Mark XVI designed in 1935 and used throughout WWII used to fire naval turret guns like the 5" and 16". The firing key was mounted at the gun pointers station and was connected electrically to the firing mechanism on the breech of the gun. When the trigger on the firing key was pulled, it completed the circuit and ignited the primer, firing the gun.

This solid brass example is nicely marked with a US with anchor and :

FIRING KEY. MK. XVI. MOD. 11

Multiple government contract numbers on most parts, appears to be in excellent condition. Just what we all need to replace that boring stick shift.
