Argentinian Hand Grenade FMK 2

Another slightly unusual item, the Argentinian FMK 2 hand grenade. Apparently (badly) made from a special frangible metal. this example has been inerted with a hole drilled in the base of the body and the empty fuse is clearly marked inert with an orange sticker.
I have had this item since just after the Falklands war.
Many thanks Joerg for the cutaway diagram, I did not know that the fuse worked in this way, regards, Tony.
