25mm Olin Flare Gun

An 25mm Orion flare gun is used by Jerry Fanon to ignite some fuel. The gun used is based on an older model that was commercially available under the Winchester "Olin" brand before it became Orion. These flare pistols had a black satin finish and bright orange grips, which are the inverse colours of the current Orion models with white and blue colours.
