Hi, does someone have more information on this 9mm flare gun with "HUB schalldampfer 1944" stamped on the top of barrel, and what they were used for?
I imagine the HUB is the 3 letter maker code, 1944, the date and schalldampfer is a sound muffler/silencer.
I would like to know more about it. If silenced, it looks like that part is missing, and would screw onto end.
It says VGB 257 stamped on the holster strap along with orig. owners name. Was a panzer unit? What were these type of flare guns used for?
I can find no information on it.
Thanks, Regards, Steve
