This is a German WWII Heer Model Flare pistol dated AC / 41. The AC stands for WALTHER manufacture and the 41 is for 1941. It is in EXCELLENT MECHANICAL condition.
Well used, but not abused, this WWII flare pistol works great. Finish is spotty, and shows holster wear and staining. This would be a great original WWII German flare pistol for reenactments or shooting fun. Standard German 26.5mm cal. flares are available at all major gun shows and on the internet.
Good mechanical condition, lock up, trigger pull, spring and hinge are tight. Barrel shows signs of use, no rust or pitting. Retains 95% of original finish. No makings or stamps except for SN # 095293. Bakelite grips in good condition with 1 very small crack. Retractable lanyard ring in place. (Often missing) Comes with 2 empty cartridge tins.
