Re: Going to SOS, Selling Flare Guns, Let me know your wants.

Howard - I will send you an email with my "wish list" this weekend.

Any idea where your tables will be?

Re: Line thrower from east

Does anyone know a source for the buoyant front end piece? I have an AL-1 that I got from Signalman at this year's Show of Shows and would love to have the companion part

Re: Lyspistol m/18

Mine is serial number 136/53. The "/53" appears to have been stamped later and the flare gun looks like it has refurbished/parkerized. Would the 53 possibly refer to a re-arsenal date (1953)?

Re: Lyspistol m/18

I just picked one of these up from Simpsons Ltd. Serial number is 136/53. Is there any data available on years of production, numbers made, etc.?

TIA!

Re: Internally rifled 26mm flare

That is fascinating - have never seen anything like it. Any idea as to country of origin?

Re: Swiss M17/38

Thanks Horst. I haven't been able to post pictures here, but if you send an email to rpebecker@verizon.net, I send some pictures back to you.

Is there a serial number cut-off that delineates between the M17 and the M17/38?
