    British L2 Grenade

    I picked up this British L2 grenade , Has it got a odd fuze as i thought the fuze was all one piece and screwed in one piece ?

    I think the training version was in two parts. Top part easy to get, bottom, nearly impossible. Aaah I may be thinking of the L56!

    You are correct about the odd fuze, or at least the lever. I suspect the fuze body is correct (Fuze L30) for the L4 Drill Grenade but the lever is off of a Fuze Percussion L126 and is for a different grenade. The 126 lever will be hard to find for anyone looking for one.

    Here's an amazing co-incidence Norman.

    Today I picked up an L4 and was puzzled by the L126A1 lever?? What's it from?
