WW2 German Luftwaffe / Wehrmacht Model LP42 Signal Flare Pistol – EXCELLENT!


1 in stock


You are bidding on a VERY NICE example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht/ Luftwaffe LP42 Flare Pistol!  These were used by both soldiers on the ground, as well as pilots.

The LP-42 Flare Gun, also known as Leuchtpistole 42, was a WW2-era German flare gun. Using a simplified design compared to the Leuchtpistole to save precious war materials and production effort, the LP-42 is made out of stamped galvanized steel rather than being fully machined. The LP-42 is capable of firing 27mm flares, smoke grenades, anti-personnel grenades, and anti-armor grenades.

Made of zinc, steel and bakelite, this Flare Pistol is is EXCELLENT used condition!  Made in 1942 by “euh” (C. u. W. Meinel-Scholer, Klingenthal), it retains approx. 90% original paint and finish, with NO damage!  Some slight corrosion, but that could easily be cleaned up.  Some marks, scratches, and wear, but nothing that detracts.  Features a Waffenamt on the top.  An VERY NICE late-war example, it would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!
