    I've been trying to sell this for a while, so I might as well try to here. I am offering for sale a WW2 German Heeresmodelle Flare Pistol, also know as the Heeres-Leuchtpistole. This is a 26.5mm break open flare pistol designed by Fritz Walther in 1930. This specimen is marked "duv 42", which means it was manufactured by Berlin-Lubecker Maschinenfabrik in 1942, thier first year of production. (Guns of the Reich, by George Markham, page 72). This particular Signal Pistol retains at least 80% of it's original black finish, and is a zinc framed model. There is some slight rust on the hammer and firing pin (easy to take care of, I just haven't had the time), and the lanyard loop is gone. It is also marked with 6 Nazi Eagle proofs,4 of which have the inspection number 214 underneath. It is serial number 4570. I.O. Inc. is selling the more common POST-WAR Walther made LP's for with Steel or Aluminum frames for $300 and $200 respectively. This is a much less common manufacturer with a Zinc frame. I am asking $200 +shipping for this fine piece of German WW2 history. Also, trades will be considered.

    the guy I forwarded it to has expressed an interest. Forwarding him your email.

    Fair warning though: expect him to ask ALOT of questions about it. He's really into the WWII german stuff.

    Hey mystical, what's the deal on this? My buddy's really damn interested, but he says you didn't return either of his emails (though his email system is wierd, so it might have bounced).

    I sent two emails to him, must not have gone through. Sorry it's just been crunch time here at school and I've been busy. I'm going to send him another one now. Tell him I'm really sorry about this.
