    Hello!

    A friend of mine has a German flare gun in his collection and I spotted that the waffen amps are a bit weird! Something like the eagle holding a heart in his talons... Can someone help me out on what this stamp stands for?

    Thank you very much!!

    I am moving this to the World Firearms Forum as this is not SS related.

    The mark is not an waffenamt , it's the proof mark of the Zella-Mehlis proof house post 1939.

    Wikipedia info form what you provided me:

    "Zella-Mehlis is a town in the Schmalkalden-Meiningen district, in Thuringia, Germany. It is situated in the Thuringian Forest, 5 km north of Suhl, and 20 km east of Meiningen. The town of Zella-Mehlis is the site of the original Walther Arms and J.G.Anschutz weapons factories. They remained there until the Russians occupied eastern Germany at the end of World War II."


    So this is the manufasturer's sign?


    (Thank you very much for your information! )
