Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Here we have an excellent condition 37mm WWII Era Skylar Signal Flare Pistol., which was painted matte black overall some time ago to protect the body from oxidation.

Break open operation, featuring zinc construction. Embossed on both sides above the crosshatched grip in raised letters: SKLAR / SIGNAL PISTOL / SAN FRANCISCO. Measures 10 3/4 inch overall length with an 8 1/8 inch barrel.

Excellent markings and condition, showing some wear and flaking to the matte black repaint. Serial number Z 594. Nicely marked PT 9.44 for September 1944. In complete working order with firing pin still present and a functional ejector. It comes with an original FEBRUARY 1945 dated 37mm tracer flare cartridge, which is spent and inert.

These flare guns were made for commercial and military wartime use. Imagine being stranded in a life raft, after the sinking of your ship by a U-Boat, the most valuable item in your survival kit may have been this flare gun. The gun has certainly seen service and an interesting life; if it could only talk... These are encountered fairly often, but are usually overly polished. Don’t let this one get away, this one actually looks as old as it really is.
