This is an extremely rare WWI Schermuly flare pistols fitted with extra long barrel extensions. The design is based on the WWI Webley MKIII* brass flare pistols of the same period however, this oone has longer barrel extensions measuring 6.5 inches with the overall barrel length being 9 inches. We believe they were made this particular length specifically for the Royal Navy, as the increased barrel length gave a much greater range when firing flares at sea and also made it easier to hold whilst aboard a moving ship. During WWI & WWII the Royal Navy would fire flares high into the sky at night whilst patrolling for German U-Boats. The pstol has the correct period wartime British proofs and Schermuly Patents 179997. 

Deactivated with a working action it can be cocked, stripped and dry fired.
