US WW1 Remington Flare Gun with Holster
Original U.S. WWI Remington Mark III Flare Signal Pistol circa 1915-1918: This very nice flare pistol was made by the Remington Arms Company in Bridgeport Connecticut, between 1915 and 1918. This takes a 10 gauge flare in a 9" steel barrel designated the "MARK III" and so marked with all the manufacturer's information:
"MARK III - THE REMINGTON ARMS - UNION METALLIC CARTRIDGE CO. INC, REMINGTON BRIDGEPORT WORKS - BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT, U.S.A."
The frame is of brass and retains a wonderful mottled patinas and the pistol comes with the original wood grips. Grips, frame, and barrel all bear serial number 10. This design features a "spur" trigger, and a "top break" loading system, typical of most flare pistols. Measures 12 1/2 inches overall, with a 9 inch barrel.
