Constructed of steel and aluminum with Bakelite grips. Listed as a cabin pressure pistol. This British signal pistol has a very complex design which allowed the aircrew to load, fire and unload the gun at high altitude in a pressured aircraft cabin without depressurizing. Gun was manufactured in this version, the Mk II, and the Mk I. The manually operated pistol was attached to the inside of the aircraft fuselage in a recoil dampening bracket. It is a double action operation. The large handle at the center of the circular central portion of the gun on the right side allowed the pistol grip, firing mechanism and barrel to be rotated up and out of the way. Pistol was developed for the British Royal Air Force for use during World War II. It is rarely seen and most people do not know what it is. Fully proofed. CONDITION: Excellent, all original condition showing usual wear from being on an airplane during the war.
