Item Description

Original item: Only One Available. This is a FANTASTIC Bring Back Set! not only is the LP-34 signal flare pistol in like new MINT condition but accompanying it is an original Bring Back Certificate that not only named the pistol but also records its serial number! The certificate is dated November 7th, 1945 and was issued to Corporal Kenneth P. Much ASN 32731241 and the item referenced is 1 Pistol, German, Flare Serial No. 2076N.

This is a near Mint condition example of the classic German Wehrmacht LP-34 signal flare pistol, which was designed in 1934. The Leuchtpistol 34 has an aluminum alloy frame and barrel with steel moving components, uses 26.5 mm flares, and was finished in black anodized aluminum. Steel components were blued. It superseded the previous LP28, which was made of all steel, as part of a continuing evolution of Walther-designed flare pistols.

The change to the "duralumin" reduced the weight of the pistol by 0.730 kg, and also partially prevents internal corrosion due to gun powder residue. The overall machine work of the components was improved over the LP28, and the wood grips were replaced by checkered bakelite. Most importantly,  the trigger guard was made significantly larger, so that the pistol could be used easily even with a gloved hand.

This example bears original German maker code ayf, which stands for the legendary ERMA-Erfurter Maschinenfabrik B. Geipel GmbH of Erfurt,  a German weapons manufacturer founded in 1922 by Berthold Geipel. Prior to and during World War II it manufactured many firearms, including the Karabiner 98k, the MP40 and other submachine guns. Below this is it stamped with the manufacture date of 1942, and it has serial number 2076n above the trigger guard and on the barrel by the hinge. It is nicely waffenamt marked on the right side of the frame, trigger assembly, and barrel.

Completely Original German WW2 manufacture in MINT functional condition with brown bakelite checkered grip panels. The pistol is very clean, and still has all of the original anodized finish on the aluminum components. The steel components still have their original heavy blued finish.

Also include is the original Bring Home Box, which is German and Nazi ink marked to the interior.

A fantastic totally genuine matched set.
