Walther SLD Kriegsmarine Flare Pistol

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThese pistols were produced for seagoing vessels in the German Kriegsmarine, where the lack of a steady platform meant that the additional handhold needed to be provided. Early versions were manufactured in stainless steel, later ones in anodized aluminium. This example has the eeu code for the manufacturer Lieferungsgemeinschaft Westthüringer Werkzeug u. Metallwarenfabriken GmbH in Wek Sömmerda, Thuringia. With a production run just over 4000, and many of these ending up on the Atlantic floor, they are super rare. This example is missing its selector switch, which I am working on getting 3d printed.

    Hi there.
    I’m missing the same thing on my flare gun, is it possible to get one printed to me also?


    • Bjarne, it seems like it is common that these go missing. As soon as I have a decent CAD of the part I will happily share it! Send me your email address through the contact me form.
