    I hope it was not in somebody's front pants pocket when it blew up!

    Probably a barrel obstruction. The metal looks a bit thin there too.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Somebody on another forum said it doesn't look like a true pengun. Probably a modified flare gun.

    Where does somebody buy something this undamaged. How do manufactures get away with building this?

    Made in the 60s-70s, most likely. They were mail-order for a good while, then fell under the AOW ruling.

    Could be one of the old flare guns someone foolishly dropped a .38 Spl. round into, chamber walls are really thin.
