    Van Williams "Britt Reid" Hornet "gas" gun from The Green Hornet. Van Williams "Britt Reid" Hornet "gas" gun from The Green Hornet. (ABC-TV, 1966-1967) Signature Hornet gun used by Van Williams as "Britt Reid" in The Green Hornet. This "gas" gun has a body of carved wood, textured grip and Green Hornet design, with barrel and upper casing of metal. The base of the grip has a discrete spring-loaded door that the compressed air line would run through and depressible metal trigger at the rear of the casing. For the gas scenes the compressed air line would be hidden in the actor's sleeve. The gun is visible in the early filmed garage segments when the Hornet checks his weapons and inserts a "gas" cartridge in the gun before he and Kato roll out in Black Beauty. The guns went through three different paint schemes until one was found that would photograph best on screen. Measures 9.5 in. long x 5 in. tall and is painted silver. Exhibits some paint chips around the grip. In vintage good condition.
