German M1889, Double Barrel, Navy Flare Gun. #F-20
Scarce M1889 brass double barrel flare pistol, made by. AW.W, one of only 800 having been made by this firm, marked for the German Navy. SN: 207. Cal: 26.5mm. Previous owner cited that production of this variation was only 2,500 total by all manufacturers. This example has 5 7/16” brass barrels with flared muzzles. Wood grips. Marked on the butt: "AW.W.15/ 207" Crown/M Kriegsmarine proof mark on the bottom of frame. Double external hammers with single trigger. All matching numbers. CONDITION: Near excellent with a uniformly pleasing patina and clear markings. Pitting on the hammers and trigger as pictured. The locking bolt, grips and their securing screws appear as replacements. Bright, nicely polished bores. Good mechanical function with each hammer having a half and full cock, though the length of travel of the right hammer is shorter. A HISTORICAL INVESTMENT!
