    Hungarian? Rifle Grenade.

    Sold as a Hungarian rifle grenade. It looks like a practice rocket-assisted grenade with 4 vent holes.
    The head is solid alloy, steel adaptor and stem with a plastic tail.
    The body is 60 / 55mm wide, 395mm long and 16.5mm hole for spigot launcher.
    Some info may have been removed above the stencilling.
    I need to confirm the country and grenade model /type.

    Apparently GYAKORLO should be something like PRACTICE(on the two black grenades)

    Thank you both for this info. I assume you agree that it is Hungarian. I could find no info on this grenade. Ron.
    What rifle would fire this grenade?

    Hi,
    Just to add to the information already provided, it was fired from a special Hungarian version of the Kalashnikov assault rifle, called the AMP-69. As already mentioned, this is the practice version of the Anti-Tank grenade. The usual marking is GYAKORLO (for PRACTICE) over the lot number, factory number (33) and last two numbers of the year of manufacture.
    Cheers,
    Gary

    Hi Oktato,
    do you known the name of the 33 factory ?
    In my docs I have only a Check one and a Bulgarian one ! Should your grenades made in another country than Hungaria ?
