I was wondering if anyone can tell me more about this type flare gun and who might have used it. This is a heavy piece as it's made out of cast brass - no sheet metal frame on this one! It is also Army ordnance marked. The box is marked as shown and some of the smaller print says the company was a contractor to the government. The box is 6 3/4 inches x 8 1/4 inches which gives you an indication of the size of the pistol it contains.
So what situation or what type units would have used these?
Here's some pics and Thanks!
