    No 36 weight

    Hello
    Maybe a trivial question but what is the official weight of complete grenade No36 ?
    I just weighted two grenades, empty from our collection without detonator 600gr and another one I assume filled HE without detonator 669gr.
    Regards
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .

    Including the gas check, the total weight filled was quoted as 1lb 11.25oz (773g).

    If filled 20/80 baratol, the original specified filling weight was 2oz 2drs +/- 2drs (High 64g , Low 57g). Later instruction for filling baratol was for the grenade "to be filled to capacity".

    If filled crystalline TNT, the specified filling weight was High 2oz 7drs (69g), Low 2oz 2drs (60g).
