    Replica grenades

    Would like to get my hands on a Hawkins 75 grenade and maybe a gammon 82 grenade added to the collection but don't justify playing ridiculous somes of money for such items. So I was contemplating to fill the gap with replicas. What do you thing are the best about and your opinion as copies going and one's to avoid. I am also after 247 always fuze tape with the pin and lead end, is there anyone making replica tape as the tape is the hardest part to find.

    What Price Glory has replicas of the No. 75 and No 82. They are pretty decent too and not overly expensive.

    heres my no.75 from what price glory.the cap is a casting and dosent unscrew but other than that its a good copy and you could always improve it by adding real cap and other bits if you wanted.
    as you said the real ones a very expensive and this is probably good enough for most

    This Guy's replica parts are good, I have bought one or two items from him. Check out his other parts.
