Army Air Forces and the U. The serial number on the strap is E-16544.
I cant be 100% sure of the serial number it is hard for me to read. The AN-M8 is a double-action, single pistol used for projecting flares or signaling between troops, from ground troops to aircraft, from aircraft to aircraft, US Navy for signaling, and from aircraft to ground troops. The pistol's frame is parkersized with most of the finish intact and original.
The rubber grips are a hard checkered design. The pistol measures 8.5 x 6 inches. The barrel of the gun is stenciled 414, I think this may have been for the US Navy. The flare pistol was used to fire a 1.5diameter flare.I have a box of 12 flares that are cracked and used for collectors only. This sale does not include the flares.
