My Walther Flare pistole with Holster
« on: July 14, 2018, 08:14:03 AM »
Finally found a WII holster for my flare pistol the was priced right.  It is a fuq42 WaA14 holster the fuq was the code for Cottbusser Leaderwarenwerk, Curt Volget KG/MG-Werkzeugtaschen.  The was supplied by a friend of mine Mark Cassel.  Mark collects flare pistols.  One other thing the ATF doesn't consider flare pistols as fire arms so you if you purchase one it can be shipped directly your home.

That sucker looks beefy enough to fire anti aircraft 'flares'.

Very nice!

If you could find flares you could be the life of the next Fourth party. :)

Yes any 25.5 MM flare will work in all WII flare guns, even in the double barrel varieties. Some of the later , late 1944 and 1945 flare pistols had zinc frames not steel.  They would be OK for two three flares a year but not a steady diet of them.  German Wll Flare pistol are cheaper than German firearms of the period.  Since they are not considered firearms you can have them shipped directly to your home. I know several people that collect them.
