    Thumbs up ELAZ C50 Brass Fuze with (Inert) Gaine pot.

    Here is one for the `Fuziliers` amongst us!

    One that arrived this week that im very,very happy with!
    Brass ELAZ C50. All free and moveable pins,oiled them for good measure.
    Lovely,crisp markings.
    Cost a fortune as i was trying to sniff out a suspected `sniper` but i ended up with it!
    I couldnt care less though as you have to hold this in your hand to appreciate the condition.
    I hope the photo`s do it justice?

    Thanks Phil,

    In the last couple of years ive been collecting these fuzes,there has been a lot of hard graft with long hours both working and early starts to hunt them down.Plus there has been a lot of,as Lieutenant Archer in Steve`s video says, "Luck,Luck,Luck!"

    best regards

    I believe this sort of fuze was later re-worked and re-stamped as number 28 as these early versions had too much delay on impact?

    Can anyone please confirm this?

    cheers
