    History Data:Type 23 China grenade.

    Recently, I searched for the topic of Type 23 grenade.
    (The topic:http://www.bocn.co.uk/vbforum/thread...l-type-grenade)
    Some people think this grenade is a Japanese weapon. But when I looked at the Japanese army data during World War II, the data didn't mention this grenade. I only found in Chinese book that this grenade is made in China.

    The data from Chinese book:
    mmexport1537293774109.jpg

    CHARACTERISTICS:
    Length overall 95cm
    Weight complete 450g
    Weight of body 410.5g
    Weight of filling 39.5g
    Delay 5.5 second
    Type of explosive Granular TNT
    Body material Cast Iron
    Cover material zinc alloy
    ---------The title of book:《彈藥識别》(''Ammunition identification''),The Chinese military was issued in 1950.
    ---------
    The grenade production Arsenal(The grenade marking''石井''):
    Shijing Arsenal(石井兵工厰) located in Shijing Town, Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, China. It was established in June 1874. After the outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese War in 1937, Shijing Arsenal was relocated and merged into the 40th Arsenal in Guangxi. It was abolished in 1946.Shijing Arsenal's alias: Guangdong Arsenal, 41st Arsenal.
    Shijing Arsenal data:

    The grenade was actually made in China and captured by the Japanese in the Second Sino-Japanese War and plunged into the Pacific battlefield.

    This is a marking example of ammunition(7.92x57mm Mauser Cartridge) produced by Shijing Arsenal:

    Jibarium, is 石 the same character that is on the base of the grenade in the BOCN thread? It looks different to me, more like 后.
    The grenade shown on Inert Ordnance Net does have the 石 character, it’s the grenade on the BOCN thread that looks different.
