SEVERAL STANDARD SIZES ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE IN OUR STORE. BUY YOURS TODAY!
We are currently working on creating flaregun adapters for several conversions. Below is a table of prospective sizes which may become available standard or custom. As always, we invite your special requests and appreciate any questions, comments, or concerns.
12 GA flare
12 GA (shot)
With conversions that use rimfire casings, we recommend to insert the converter and rotate it so that the inner barrel is at the top or bottom. Take note of this position as it will mean you are always shooting high or low.
Please remember, flare pistols are not mean to be used as a weapon. However, any modification of a flare gun to shoot live rounds, including combining it with a flare gun insert constitutes a title 1 Firearm. This means it must be treated as such in terms of safety, legality, possession and ownership. Regardless of firearm classification, always treat your flare gun insert as a loaded firearm and follow basic safety protocol. Never store your insert loaded; only load when you are ready to fire. Do not dry fire, as it may deform the chamber of the barrel.
GaugeMate advises you to know your local laws and limitations before you plan on purchasing these or any other items.
*Disclaimers: 12 gauge shotshell ammunition is not interchangeable with 12 gauge flares and are not to be used within a flare gun. Flare adapters are not meant to be used for single-use plastic flare guns. Doing so may cause fatal injury.
