    M605 fuze parts question.

    I have the m605 fuze in the picture from a mine training kit. They modified it and I am trying to return it to original appearance. The question is the slotted tube on top that the safety goes through was removed and jb welded. Does anyone have any images of the real thing showing how. That part is made?

    Unfortunately no, I have been to both and am really looking for a real picture of one with the part removed, or someone that knows how it connects.

    no the practice fuze functions like the live one.(you can use a smoke charge in the mine)the ones from your set could be solid resin as they are only training/familirisation and not for actual drill use(im not quite sure about the details of that mine training set)as ive never seen one but definatley want one!

    In this case they took an original one replaced the firing pin with an extended bar that pushes a button in the mine when it goes off. replaced the part you took pictures of with the top of a pop rivet, and installed the prongs and filled it all with JB weld epoxy (which I removed in the previous picture. The piece that holds the primer was replaced with a guide for the firingpin/rod.

    My question is if your prongs are also held in with epoxy and I removed mine for no reason, or if it is a piece of metal that clips into the hole you see on my first picture.
