    Default Identifiyng a pistol-like object

    Hello

    A few years ago I randomly stumbled across this relic that at first glance looked like a pistol, although there are many structural features that rule this out. It doesn't have a magazine and there's a long spring all along what would be the barrel. There appears to be a muzzle protector (?) or something put in the barrel.
    Possibly a flare gun of some sort?

    Looks like a flare gun to me. The front portion looks like the hinge where the barrel would pivot when it was opened. Like a shotgun

    Lol - I own the 'Premier' model in the pic above. I believe
    they are from the 60's, or possibly earlier.

    My guess is that with MK1004's relic, the barrel section
    ( upper tube ) broke off and the frame portion simply
    discarded. You'd unlatch the barrel which becomes
    the 'cocker', pulling it forward to compress the
    spring. It's not a very sturdy mechanism.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Yes can see how this could easily break, especially in the hands of a youngster.
