Description

You are bidding on a FANTASTIC example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht Model “Heer” Signal Flare Pistol!  These were used in various applications for both on the ground signaling, and for in the air.

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. 

In 1940, the designation “Mod. 34” was changed to “Mod. Heer”…and featured a different hammer as well as a load indicator.  Later changes included different types of grip plates and lanyard ring.

Made of aluminum and steel, this Flare Pistol is in EXCELLENT used condition!  Made mid-war, it retains approx. 90% original paint and finish!  There are some very slight marks and wear, but nothing that detracts.  100% complete, it is totally functional!  Made by “ayf” (Erma), and markings are clear, along with various waffenamts and inspection stamps!  All parts are original to this gun and part numbers match.  I have shown the difference between the Mod. 34 and Mod. Heer in the last photo.  Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!
