    Training F1

    I am looking for some answers on the markings found this F1 grenade and fuze.

    Any help would be appreciated since grenades are not my thing.

    I am particularly trying to figure out if the body or fuze was made in Poland, or someplace else? Were these just Russian made F1s that were used for training by Poland?

    Poland has a licence production for the F1 since the late 40s. The fuze UZRGM has the factory code "354". This code is assigned to Bydgoskie Zakłady Elektromechaniczne „BELMA”. Filling of the body was done at factory "406" (Wytwórnię Wyrobów Precyzyjnych Niewiadów) or at "21" (Zakłady Metalowe MESKO).

    EDIT: Took a second look at the pics. Sorry, but I can't help you with the markings on the body right now

    so seems those marked SZK are 'drill' grenades for the classroom, and those marked CWICZ (exercise) are throwing practice...
    always looking for inert baton rounds and accessories - please message me if you have any for sale/trade.
