French WW1 Very Pistol (Flare Pistol)

Flare pistols are undisputed front line items. This interesting collectable is a World War One French flare pistol commonly referred to as the Model 1917. Barrel and frame are brass. Overall length is 8 inches, barrel length 4 inches. Calibre is French 25mm flare. Will not accept British 1 inch or 26.5mm commercial flares. Unmarked except for small maker mark on frame beside lever: G.G & Cie which we believe represents Grivolat Gerest fils et compaigne. This is the pistol that the Americans used as a pattern for their Very Pistol Mk IV which they produced after entering WW1 in 1917.
