    the only thing i know about the differents in no 5and 26 is the possibiletyto fire the grenade as a rifle grenade by a different base plug to adobt a rifle rod ore the round base plate.
    according ian v. hogg the no 5 was remodelled for manufacturing convenience, with larger lugs for the saftypin, a flat steel lever a striker with a notch on one site only and a hexagonal base plug
