This is an excellent condition example of a 1941 dated Luftwaffe Flieger-Leuchtpistole L or Aviators Flare Gun L. These double barrel, 26.5mm (4 Bore) signal pistols were issued to Luftwaffe aircrews in order to give them a method of communication that did not rely on their radio transmitters. The Flare Gun offered here is in excellent condition. The pistol retains about 95%+ of its original black enamel finish, with most of the wear and finish loss confined to the sharp and high edges and the muzzle crowns. The pistol is in excellent mechanical condition and functions correctly with a crisp, tight action. This pistol is marked with the German maker code FZS which is Waffenfabrik Heinrich Krieghoff of Suhl. It is dated 1941 to the rear of the safety lever on the left side of the frame together with Luftwaffe Eagle mark. The underside of the right hand barrel is marked with 4 in a circle (4-Bore) and the left barrel the German definitive black powder proof (1939-1945) of an eagle. This same proof appears on the rear of the receiver between the L and R barrel selector marks, and is covered when the selector switch is in the middle or “both barrels” position. The signal pistol is marked with the serial number 10339 on the forward lower portion of the right hand side of the frame, and the Luftwaffe contract number Fl 24483 is present on the opposite side of the frame. The gun has a frame mounted safety with F and S markings. The pistol uses a break open design that is activated by pushing the release lever forward. This action releases the locking lugs, opens the action, cocks the pistol and automatically sets it on safe. After closing the action the shooter can use the selector switch on the rear of the frame to determine whether they want to fire the Left barrel, Right barrel or both barrels simultaneously, by pulling the split trigger. A rare item the price includes UK delivery and the deactivation certificate. D 1082
