Reviews
12 Gauge Flare Conversion Insert is rated 3.725 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from now I can't find 12 gauge flares ordering was easy, delivered in 4 days, DIDN'T FIT GUN. Was able to fix it thou with a couple turns on the grinding wheel and a shot of black paint. Now to find the flares. not as common as youd think, even Sportsmans guide doesn't offer them

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine price for a paper weight. I already reviewed it below, noting, like so many others, that it doesn't fit the Yugo M57/M58 flare guns. I wanted to add that mine also didn't come with the outer markings shown in the photo. Not much of a problem, considering the mill work needed to get the darn thing into shooting condition!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the price, not the usability. The product arrives in like-new condition, with an impeccable appearance. Unfortunately, that is where my satisfaction ends. Either the unit I received needs to be turned down/tapered, or my M57's barrel needs a light honing to accept this conversion. I knew the chamber would also be short, which I will correct as well, to allow me to use common 12 -gauge to magnum pistol conversions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not fit 26.5 mm flare gun I bought this conversion insert along with the Yugo 26.5 mm flare pistol. The pistol barrel is actually about 29.9 mm, so standard 26.5 mm flares fit well. But this insert is 33.5 mm OD, so it will not fit in the pistol barrel. Also, the insert's short chamber will not hold Orion standard 12 ga aerial flares. I will have to hone the OD and file the ID.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The 12 gauge flare conversion insert will not fit the Yugo flare gun. They only go in part of way, Appears as though the Yugo chamber is tapered down smaller farther in or perhaps flare insert is too long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It doesnt fit Simply, the insert does not allow you to close the breech after inserting it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works with modification Works with modification for British Model No. 1 Mark V WW2 flare pistol. My gunsmith had to put on lathe and touch with a file to take a few hundredths off the lip.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Houston - We have a problem Nice looking flare gun insert - except it didn't fit in the barrel of the Yugo M57 flare pistol I bought at SG. Got about the first third down the barrel and it wouldn't go any further. Appears the outer plastic sleeve bulged enough when the steel barrel was pressed in to prevent it from going in. Will have to be sanded down to fit. Not Good.
