This is a mint condition German WW2 Leuchpistole 42 flare gun. At one time you could find beat up example of this pistol all over the place for around $200, but that was many years ago and they never looked this crisp. This was the standard mid-late war production German Army flare pistol. This is a wartime waffenamted example and looks new. Many folks will want to add one to their collection. no paperwork required.
