The Matador is a slaughtering pistol with a captive pin using explosive cartridges calibre 6.3/12. It is used for the slaughtering of equine, swine, bovine, ovine and caprine animals. It is made of a gun and a handle connected by a rocking head.
HOW DOES IT WORKS
When the trigger is pushed, explosion of the cartridge generates gas that pushes the pin at 50m/s (180km/h). The Matador is in contact with the head of the animal and the pin will penetrate the brain. The animal is immediately anesthetized and must be bled as soon as possible.
The Matador Super Securit 3000 has been especially studied to overcome security, efficiency and ergonomics problems related to slaughtering particulary constraining.
