Original German WWII Leuchtpistole 42 Signal Flare Pistol by HASAG - Serial 175762
Original item: One of a Kind: This is a wonderful example of the classic German Wehrmacht LP-42 signal flare pistol, which entered service in 1943. The Leuchtpistol 42 is of all steel construction, uses 26.5 mm flares, and was available in zinc or black finish. It superseded the previous LP34, which was made of aluminum, and took longer to make than the stamped steel body of the LP42. This example bears original German maker code; wa, which stands for HASAG, previously known as Hugo Schneider AG, Abteilung Lampenfabrik, Leipzig. Below this is it stamped with serial number 175762, and is nicely waffen amt marked on the left side of the breech.
Completely Original German WW2 manufacture in very good complete condition with brown bakelite ribbed grip panels. The pistol is very clean, and even still has some traces of the original zinc finish in places.
These pistols used to be plentiful on the market, however with all known stocks being exhausted, they are now very hard to come by. Ready to display.
