    Default unusual ww2 signal pistol

    Hi can anyone help me with pinning down what this was used in?
    i have done the usual serches but not found anything with the thread on like this one. It takes the 1.5 inch cartrige and looks to be w&s or enfield made. but other than that its a mystery.
    the last two picks are the rest of my modist deac colection.

    Hi
    They are mostly new speck. but what i have gone for is nothing that has been messed with and i always go for matching numbers if i can.
    It is getting hard to find good pistols though. i have been looking into collecting flair pistols also but they seem to be expensive for what they are. But i supose they were also made in much smaller mumbers than pistols or rifles.

    this flare pistol was used in a "port" on british bombers to signal that wounded personnel were on board,,there was a threaded opening,as there was in a B-17,,where a flare pistol could be screwed in to a threaded opening for operation,,,nice flare pistol

    That is what i thought but after meny months of serching i have never even come across another pick of this type all a aircraft pistols i have come across have been much smaller and lighter, i thought it may be used in tanks or perhaps naval i just cant find any info.

    As mentioned earlier,they lock into a port in an Aircraft so that the flare cant be fired within the fuselage. Later models had 4 square lugs for the same job.
