British Mark III Flare Pistol

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThis is a 1918 stamped MkIII flare pistol, manufactured by Cogswell & Harrison, the famous shotgun manufacturers. This example is the improved version with the extended muzzle. The intent of this mod was to avoid burning the hands of the operator. It’s not like I am into flare pistols but the whole brass steampunk here was impossible to resist.
