Came across this fairly common WW2 Flare / Signal Gun made by EVCC " Eureka Vacuum Cleaner Corp "  I believe this could be a Line Thrower made by them but have yet to find another like this. I came across a patent by RF Sedgley flare gun modification which looks similar to this gun ( pdf file below) .  The extension measures 6 1/2 " long from the end of the original flare gun. The barrel opening is 1/2" Dia . 

Any thoughts.......Thank You      Bob

Home made. I have seen several differant types of flare gun conversions at the J.M. Davis museum in Clarmore,Ok .  All were police confiscated and donated to the museum.
