USN 10 Ga. hand projector / flare gun


Recommended Posts

I've had this for awhile & thought I would post it to get your ideas on its use. I was told it was carried by Navy pilots in their survival raft gear. I have the old wax 12 ga. very pistol round & it fits great. It breaks into two peices & has a simple spring loaded firing pin with a lever that swivels for a saftey. I posted the I.D. nomenclature on one of the pictures. Look's like one would have to wear a glove maybe when fired. :think:

Nice, I have one w/ a about 16 rounds sealed in individual water proofed plastic tubes. I also have some unopened cans of the flares.

 

Neat items, though I have never fired one...... :w00t:
