Walther 27mm Flare Pistol With black leather Holster, Shoulder Strap & Cleaning Rod
  1GCE-1. A really nice set up consisting of a 27mm, short barrel, (6-1/16-inch, breach to muzzle), aluminum flare pistol with a smooth, bright, blue/black finish; the Carl Walther Firm manufactured the pistol late in the 1930’s and it was used throughout WW2. This specimen is in excellent working condition; it retains approximately 95% of its original finish with most of the wear, caused by the holster, at the end of the barrel, (one side of the barrel has more finish wear than the other side); there is also light wear to the finish on some of the highlights; one screw that has several short scratches around it; the exterior exhibits other very minor scratches, scuffs and blemishes, which are consistent with very light handling and minimal use. The interior of the barrel is bright and clean with very light signs of age and use. The dark brown, checkered, Bakelite grips exhibit only slight signs of handling. The left side of the frame bears the “Walther Banner” logo design; it is also stamped, “Waffenfabrik Walther Zella-Mehlis (Thur.); it is dated, “1937” and serial numbered “1288c.” The right side of the frame, breach area, trigger, trigger guard and opening mechanism are stamped with several Waffenamt, as well as inspectors’ proofs and other arsenal marks. Overall the pistol is in near excellent condition and was very well taken care of. The early style, smooth, black leather holster is designed to hold the 27mm short barrel flare pistol; the holster is approximately 7-inch wide, (at its widest spot), x 11-1/2-inch high, tapering to about 2-1/4-inch wide. There is a large leather flap closure at the top, which is secured by a leather strap that passes through a heavy rectangular bracket that protrudes through an, oval, metal re-enforced hole on the front of the flap. The front of the holster also has a circular socket and belt strap with buckle to secure the flare gun cleaning tool. The backside has double, vertical, belt loops, as well as two metal for attaching the shoulder strap; the shoulder strap is attached to the “D-rings” by means of two large, sturdy snap hooks on each end of the shoulder strap. The holster exhibits overall light to moderate surface scratches, scuff, and blemishes to the finish from handling and use; the leather is in Vg to near Vg+ condition, it’s sound, supple and completely serviceable. The fold over flap at the top edge of the holster exhibits light to moderate cracking of the leather, however, the leather is still very sound in that area. The leather is marked, on the front, under the flap, “Carl Kuntze, Penig. Sa.” And is dated 1935. The leather shoulder strap exhibits moderate to heavy signs of age cracking, but it is still very strong, sound and serviceable. The heavy steel rod cleaning tool is approximately 8-1/2-inch long, the bottom end has an aluminum plug that is the exact size as the interior diameter of the barrel; the top end is formed in the shape of an oval handle; a leather tab with a heavy snap clip is attached to the handle; the handle is stamped with an early style Waffenamt and the letters “GL” and the number “36,” (probably the date); the metal rod exhibits age and has a dark patina. The part of the leather strap that secures the cleaning tool handle has become unattached, (the loop part that holds the end of the belt); everything is still secure and can function perfectly without the loop. A RARE, very collectible set that came together as a direct veteran purchase. Overall condition: Shoulder strap about Vg-; the holster is about Vg+ and the pistol is very close to Excellent, or better. $850.00

The, stamped aluminum, filter is approximately 5-1/4-inch diameter x 1-1/2-inch high and has an interior charcoal impregnated paper filter, (bits of charcoal comes out of the filter when disturbed). The mask has, two, ink, Waffenamt, stamps along with other stamped numbers; in addition there is a large Mercedes ink stamp design on the rubber; the filter has embossed numbers, “RL1. 38/4,” & “5 125,” as well as a, 091,” ink stamp.
