Product Information

This is a rare WWI German "Kdtur LILLE" (Kommandantur Lille) flare pistol, chambered for 1 inch rounds. This is a good example of a German Ersatz or substitute weapon that was manufactured during the Great War. Whilst Belgium was under German occupation these large flare pistols were produced at the Lille depot. They look somewhat crude with hand made wooden grips, simple design and lack of overall finish. As with most Ersatz weapons function and simplicity was key. It has a heavy steel barrel with side mounted push latch and a hinged opening. At the rear is a simple plunger cocking mechanism. They were produced to help supplement the short fall in standard weapons manufacture. Production numbers were very limited. Deactivated with a working action it can be cocked, stripped and dry fired and can hinge open.
