The German LP34 also known as the Leuchtpistole 34 is a single shot break action flare pistol designed by Carl Walther. This flare pistol was revolutionary because it was made out of alloys which were much lighter than the LP26 and the aluminum in the alloy prevented corrosion. There are LP34’s made out of steel and even zinc as well but those versions are more uncommon and quite rare. The flare pistols trigger guard acts as a release for the barrel/chamber. Surplus condition.
