The Leuchtpistole 34 was a single shot, break action, smoothbore, flare gun designed and produced by Walther that was a successor to the earlier Leuchtpistole 26. The Leuchtpistole 26 was of steel construction, was blued to stop corrosion, and had dyed oak pistol grips. While the Leuchtpistole 34’s frame was machined from duralumin, the barrel was machined from steel, was blued to stop corrosion, and had bakelite pistol grips. Due to the use of light alloys, the Leuchtpistole 34 was lighter than its predecessor and the trigger guard was enlarged so the user could fire the gun in cold weather while wearing gloves.
Made of aluminum and steel, this Flare Pistol is is DECENT used condition! Made earlier in the war, it retains approx 80% original paint and finish. There is some slight corrosion and wear due to the age, but it is quite solid. Sadly, it is missing a bakelite grip, and internally a spring seems to be missing. Not functional as is, but ti could be repaired if one wished. The RARE features is that this is a KRIEGSMARINE variant, and has a KM Eagle Waffenamt on the side. Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!
