Good afternoon! I recently came into possession of what I believe to be a 1916 Number 1 Mark 3 manufactured by Cogswell and Harrison.
Ain't she a beauty?
It doesn't have the blunderbuss-like thing at the end (which, if I recall, was added due to burns? I guess i'd better get Nomex gloves).
According to my (admittedly very cheap) electronic calipers, it's in roughly 26.5mm (which is a bit bigger than the listed 1" caliber), can I fire regular 26.5mm flares and rocket flares out of it?
If not, what ammunition can I fire out of it and where should I look for that ammunition?
Additionally, anybody have a guess at what it's worth?
