    :hsugh:

    Okay, so maybe its not exactly a Glock or a Sig. But Im sure its legal to carry this bohemoth around even in Illinois.
    Just imagine if I reloaded a shell to fire buckshot :eek3:

    Just got this big mother at a local auction tonight. A 1942 No 3 Mark I flare pistol. It uses 1 1/2" wide flares. I cant even imagine how scary it would be to fire a round through this.

    There was another flare gun there as well. It had a 8 to 10 inch barrel or so. Looked over the top and like almost a novelty flare gun with a hexagonal back section. Kinda resembled a revolver almost. But when I went home to do a minute or two of research on the British pistol I came across a picture of the other flare gun. It said that it was a WWI German flare gun. I turned my ass right around and inspected it again. Sure enough, there was a marking on the side about a sixteenth of an inch wide that resembled the Imperial eagle. Almost too small to tell

    I said aloud "oh that looks like some sort of novelty flare gun" to see what everyone else around me knew. All the guys around me agreed. I thought to myself "Good nobody knows what the hell it is"

    They finally get around to the flare guns after selling some robin hood number 2 or something.A .32 peashooter. It was all rusted and missing the pin to hold in the cylinder.

    I got the British flare gun for $70. Alot higher than what I was planning to spend, but I can resell it for the same if I need to.
    Then comes the german one. Starts off slow at $10 but then two other guys at the end start bidding against me. I quit after $85 or so and they continue to bid it up to $150

    I should have remembered. Never assume noone else will catch something :hs:

    Also got some shitty CD decks, a CD player, a shitty amp and a car DVD player for $7.50

    its rechargeable!

    As far as firing an actual smokeless powder round though it...well I've seen adapters for everything from 12ga to .38spl to make them fit in a flare gun. I've also seen several pictures of the flare gun blown apart. I've always thought it would be a fun experiment to repeat seveal times and see just what sort of stress they can take but I'd never pull the trigger on one without a string and a solid barrier.

    I figured if anything, since its not a huge collector in its shape, it would be neat to find new production flares and fire it off on the 4th of july

    Then help me find some flares for it :x:

    I also need to line the firing pin up better before I use it.

    Just stripped it down to the frame. Looks like its built off a Webley MK VI frame, so some of the general parts can be used as replacement like grips, some screws, front hinge hardware, trigger, and the trigger guard.

    Supposedly my flare gun should have come with a trigger guard, but when I looked at the front mounting hole, there wasnt any threads.

    Is this possibly a factory error?
    If so, would this increase value? :naughty:
