L42 Fuze and components.

I expect all of us have at some time or other marvelled at the way Fuzes are designed and made along with all the in built safety features they must have to prevent accidental explosions of rounds during production, assembly, transport and final use.:cheer:
One fuze that I find very interesting is the L42 as is used on the 84 mm Carl Gustav recoiless rifle.
The fuze is a "Spit back" type and is shown here in it's complete form and also it's component parts of which there are many!
This particular item is an exact replica having had it's explosive components replaced with "Inert" powder.
