I bought this a while ago on a whim, and decided it's not really something I need. It's a German 26.5mm flare pistol, metal barrel and frame, in VG condition. Parkerized finish. I can take pictures if someone wants, but in the meantime you can do a google search for "geco flare pistol" to see what it looks like. This is the pistol only, no holster. There are 12 gauge adapters available to shoot much more common 12 gauge flares out of it. Asking $30 in Albany/Corvallis, I could be persuaded to drive a little farther for a little more $.
