Deactivated British no4 mk1 one and a half inch flare pistol:

OK, there are three types of customer for the no4 mk1 - those that know they were used by the RAF and had lugs in the barrel to lock into the fusilage and allow marking flares to be fired out of Mosquito`s and Lancasters, those that know the British army later added a longer barrel and stock to create the riot gun for Northern Ireland and lastly, the Star Wars guys who know that Bobba Fetts blaster was built on one - take your choice! Condition is very good, breaks open, strips, cocks and dry fires and comes complete with UK deactivation certificate.
