    Thanks for the replies, I'm really pleased I found this as WW2 Russian flare pistols are hard to come by here in the UK.I'll have to keep a look ouy for some cartridges.

    Here is a sample of flare shells. Hope it helps. But as I stated before,I',m not sure you can get them there. Results for 26.5mm Flares and Pistols Ron

    Thanks for the reply Ron, no chance of importing them here unfortunately.Ownership of flare pistols was not a problem at one time, now you have to have a valid reason, i.e. a boat and you have to be licenced.This came about, because people were sleeving the pistol and using them to fire shotgun cartridges! The crazy world we live in.I'm sure some will turn up when I least expect them,at least I now know what to look for.Thanks for you reply Ade, if anybody knew of them here I thought you would have a good idea,
    Pete.
