    Pascal,

    Thanks for all that. Do you know if this is a repurposed 7.92 cartridge case or is it specific to the granatenwerfer?

    Cartridge cases are 7x57 or 7,92x57 repurposed with hunting primers

    Thanks Pascal

    I was hoping that was it. I think I have a few of those laying around here.

    Paul

    Yes. I'd found that early on in my search for info. Was the inspiration for the hole filler/fuze. A superb drawing that will be included with the display. I will be using a spent 7.92X57 shell to replicate the propelling charge but will keep looking for an original example. As well as a real fuze cap. Would love to get it completed with real/original components.
