Has anyone seen specific pinfire shotshell cartridges boxes for Clock Guns?

I am looking for some pictures (or actual boxes) of pinfire shotshell boxes that mention that they are for alarm guns or clock guns or maybe even just boxes of short blanks.

I know I’ve seen them before but can’t seem to find a single picture anywhere.

I’ve picked a couple pinfire clock guns recently.

Just telling other as I know you know, some of the shells have a device featured as part of the headstamp.
Sorry not seen or have such a box. Good Luck!

Oo! I don’t know that! That’s sounds like a neat headstamp!

I have a book on Alarm guns that has this in it:

Hi Aaron,

I think that the most common examples are Bravard boxes in 12 mm:

Another example:

Both images from Zwecker’s guide.

Ah, yes. I had forgot about the Bravard ones. I have examples of the cartridge and have seen boxes before on naturabuy.
They are 12mm. I wonder what gun they were used in?

Sometime within the past few months I saw a 100 count box on naturabuy for alarm or clock guns, I can’t remember. But I can’t find any record of it now.

Here is the patent: 558.352.pdf (293.0 KB)

Perhaps I misspoke about being exactly for a clock gun, as this is for a bird scare device, but with the same desired end result, I would think.
