Ron, I think unless you are lucky that you will need very deep pockets to find one. Just the parts that I have seen are very expensive. I also believe that they are title 2 weapons that require registration. I will keep my eye out for one for you. Jeff

You're right about needing deep pockets, Jeff, but flamethrowers aren't NFA devices. In fact, they're not even firearms, nor are they regulated as weapons under US federal law...they're considered an agricultural device.

Thanks for all the replys.Im actually seeking one for a friend and he has quite a few parts for a WW2 model.The weed killing part is not to far of a connection.The US Forest Service used them for the same purpose.Thanks again http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif

That is the only reason I have one. :lol: They are not that good for deer hunting.

There are few for sale but one of the forum members talked about building a reproduction.

This one is fired over a torch to save the igniters which are expensive in themselves.

Does anyone know where I can get a hose and a set of tanks for my WWII flame thrower?
