The flame thrower range at Mustang Range in Nevada.
This is a US military issued Vietnam era authentic flamethrower. It is NOT home made. Many thanks to the Mustang Range and the folks who help keep their shoot outs packed with fun toys for letting people have a go at this!
Since people are asking for more details on this and other flame throwers, here is some helpful information:
Modern origins - "The first flamethrower, in the modern sense, usually is credited to Richard Fiedler. He submitted evaluation models of his Flammenwerfer to the German army in 1901." [wikipedia]
Current use - "Flamethrowers have not been in the U.S. arsenal since 1978, when the Department of Defense unilaterally stopped using them." [wikipedia]
This model was filled with gasoline and possibly another propellant, but only filled to 25% capacity/pressure. [my memory]
