GERMAN WWII FLARE GUN PISTOL (LEUCHTPISTOLE 42)
GERMAN LATE WAR FLARE GUN LP42 - ORIGINAL
This original late war (entered service in 1943) Leuchtpistole 42 German flar gun was a single shot, break action, smoothbore, flare gun that was a successor to the earlier Leuchtpistole 34. The Leuchtpistole 42, which was made from stamped mild steel components, was galvanized to stop corrosion and had bakelite pistol grips.
The focus of the Leuchtpistole 42 was to reduce the consumption of light alloys, reduce reliance on machined components, reduce production time, and reduce production costs. Despite being made from mild steel and stamped components it was considered rugged and its rough appearance didn't hinder its functionality.
