Very rare Kriegsmarine U-Boat double barrel flare gun

- Collectors Connection - Very rare Kriegsmarine U-Boat double barrel flare gun. This flare gun was produced for the purpose of signaling and illumination. This excellent example of the Walther model SLD ( Signal und Leucht Doppelschussmodel )) features stainless steel barrel and frame with walnut grips. The bottom portion of the wood grips is gone with time. These double barrel flare guns were mainly allotted to U-Boats. For that reason very few of these are in existence today. The frame is well marked with AC 41 ( Walther 1941) and the Kriegsmarine waffenamt. The spring that releases the barrel is intact and allows for free movement. Marked with serial number 2381 this rare article was apparently un-issued judging by its condtion. Suggested minimal offering $4200. Additional photos upon request. More Photos
