Original German WWII Leuchtpistol 42 Signal Flare Pistol LP-42 by euh - Matched Serial Number

Regular price $250.00

Item Description

Original Item: Very Few Available. Just discovered during a warehouse inventory cleanup, these are from the final shipment IMA received over 20 years ago of classic German WW2 Wehrmacht LP42 signal flare pistols, which entered service in 1943.

These Leuchtpistol 42 are of zinc-finished steel construction, 26.5 mm caliber, and bear the original German maker code; euh, which stands for- C. u. W. Meinel-Scholer, Klingenthal in Sachsen.

These particular pistols were captured along with many others by the British at the end of WW2, and then supplied them to Israel, who marked them: 1" in a circle over ממ 25, for 25mm (in hebrew). There they saw service in the Middle Eastern Campaigns of the 1960s and 1970s. Subsequently they were sold as surplus and ended up on the world market, and eventually were imported by IMA into the United States.

These flare pistols are completely Original German WW2 manufacture and in very good complete condition with original dark red bakelite ribbed grip panels. Most of the finish is intact and the serial numbers on the barrel and frame will match. These are very hard to find World War Two items with a fascinating history. 

Holster, Cleaning Rod, and inert flares are available separately.
