9/22/21 - This is an excellent example of an Erma Flare Pistol issued to the Nazi military in 1943. It is all matching and has the proper "Eagle 280" military proofs throughout. It has retained about 93% of its finish. There is minor wear on the high edges and streaky wear on the right side of the barrel. Comes with excellent brown grips. Minty, shiny bore. Fully functional.
