    So how does it work? You set out tripwire and when the enemy touches the tripwire it fires the flare?
    Best Regards

    Very interesting, I suppose the enemy trips it, and the Germans can see where they are.

    It looks like its fitted to the pistol by means of a pin going through the hole just above the pistol grip Very nice piece, first I've seen too.

    Thanks
