    A non gun, this is a WW1 Schermuly Flare Gun/Line thrower.  This example shows a 1 5/8" bore in the 13" barrel.  This example shows the less common fluid filled clinometer level.  The level shows the proper elevation to hold the flare gun when it is used as a line thrower.  The pattern #179997 is noted on the frame.  The serial number 10290 is matching on the barrel unit and the frame.  This example shows the commerical proofs on the barrel and the crown 1S 79 British Gov inspectors mark .  These guns were used by the Royal Navy and other military units during WW1.  An excellent example of as scarce line thrower/flare pistol.  These are non firearms under the current law, but a PAL is required if cartridges are included.
