    WW1 German Rifle Grenade

    Nice section John on a beautiful grenade, but I do have a soft spot for German WW1 grenades. Would it be possible to see a picture of the un-sectioned one also?? Dano

    Hi Dano

    Your wish is my command.... This now makes 5 in my collection so I think I will thin at least one out.

    Both grenades came with original range limiting discs but one was quite corroded so I've taken it off. I have replacements though. Yes I like these too. They are very well made and the fuzes are minor masterpieces of engineering.

    That's a terrific fuze Stephan. Just what mine needs. I'll see if I can work up the courage to get out the hacksaw!
