Flare Gun

Anyone know the possible date of my Great Grandfathers old flare gun ? I have never seen another one, online or elsewhere.

    A google image search for Italian flare pistols turns up a couple that look about the same. There's on from 1942 with the date stamped on the left side of the frame but earlier ones don't seem to have that.

    It's known as Modello 1900, which is usually abbreviated to "00" on the guns.  They were used from ca. 1900 to at least WWII.
