This pistol was produced By General Motors Guide Lamp Div. in 1942. This single shot was chambered for the 45 A.C.P. cartridge. There were around a million of these single shot pistols made. There is no serial number ever issued with these guns. They were produced for supplying guns to resistance forces in occupied territories during World War 2. These pistols were called Flare Projectors Cal. 45. to keep their true purpose secret, hence the F.P. 45 nomenclature. One of the pistol’s other name was the Liberator. These pistols were crudely made. It cost the Government $2.10 to produce each pistol. This pistol is in the “White” they were never blued or finished. The pistol’s finish now is mostly patina. The grip compartment can store 10 45 A.C.P. shells. The action still works and locks up tight. There is no damage or other issues with this pistol. This pistol is still in it’s original condition. This is an interesting pistol from the clans dine history of World War 2.

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
