6/23/20 - This is a very rare and all original Walther AC 41 single barreled flare pistol. These early flare pistols are very hard to find, especially in this condition. The pistol is machined out of steel, so it's heavier than most flare pistols from WW2. Steel was an expensive commodity during the 1940s, and this flare pistol is 100% stainless steel. Further, this is the more scarce single-barreled variation. Most of these early flare pistols ended up in the bottom of the ocean, and most that have survived the war are the more popular double-barreled versions. The condition is excellent throughout the pistol. Walnut grips and foregrip have a few minor surface nicks but no major cracks or chips. No rust or pitting on the metal, only some light surface scratches. Fully functional and operational, including a working safety.
