Original German WWI Model 1894 Hebel Flare Pistol

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Very nice WWI Imperial German Model 1894 Hebel flare pistol in the standard 26.5mm caliber with a 9 inch barrel. Left side of frame is marked with G.M. and serial number 4092. This marking appears to have been done later, with it being some type of unit marking. There are also several small proof marks on the both sides of frame and barrel, including the German Imperial Eagle, and Crown over B for Beschuss = proof load fired.

Metal finish is worn with a nice worn gray patina, with signs of pitting and scale. Wood grips have original finish and a good tight fit with some normal handling marks. Lanyard ring is still present (rare). Mechanically tight and excellent, though the catch sticks a bit.

These were used by the German Military throughout both world wars, being used when signalling to German soldier to go "over the top" when leaving their trenches and engaging Allied forces. German aviators often carried this type of flare pistol to shoot at British aircraft and then-hydrogen filled balloons.

A classic Great War German flare gun that will make a nice addition to your collection.
