04/28/20 - This is an original WW2 U-Boat Kriegsmarine scarce model SLD - Signal und Leucht Doppelschussmodelce (literally ”signal & light double shot model). The pistol has a pair of 9 1/4” barrels and a 4 3/4” wooden fore-end to give the user a more secure grip when the pistol was fired. This double barrel flare pistol was manufactured in 4 bore and accepted 27mm flares with a variety of signaling and lighting purposes. The left side of frame is waffenamt and has the "eeu" makers mark. It also has an "Eagle M" marking. Both barrels have a "4" in a circle and are waffentamt. This particular example is in excellent condition and is fully functional. The gun has retained most of its original finish. There is some thinning in the finish along the sides of the barrels. There are also very small white dots throughout the barrels. We assume this is a reaction of the aluminum with the salt air. There are small dots of discoloration on the trigger/trigger guard. The wood parts are excellent - just a few light handling marks. The bore is excellent. There is just some very minor freckling near the front on the right barrel.
