    Hi Kenny,
    I am by no means an expert on grenades, but i think what you have there is a German WW2 No39 Egg Grenade. I am sure one or two more knowledgeable members will be able to give you some more information.

    I agree with Weasel

    Considering its pristine condition, it may be a well done repro.
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    Hi..thanks for replies..yes I am sure you right..I think judging by the condition it is more than likely a repro. .that is why I thought it may have been a modern current grenade ..I will probably offload it onto ebay...unless someone wants to make me a cheeky offer ������

    Ebay won't allow it.

    It was probably one of the German grenades made for 'Band of Brothers' or possibly a Soldier of Fortune product.
