My Restored No. 23 and No. 36M Mills.


Active Member
These are my only British Mills grenades. I have obtained a 5" rod for the No. 23 Mk II, and a WW I type Mills cup for rifle attachment. I have a 2.5" discharger for the Enfield No. 1 Mk III* rifle. I am still tracking down a 2.5" gas check for my No. 36M for display with the 2.5" discharger.

Well done! Nice collection of Mills bombs and kit.
What condition were they in before your restoration? Any photos??

The grenades were in very good condition. The No. 36M had a WWII zinc base plug with an off-center hole, which was not tapped. I obtained a base plug replacement in the UK. Thanks again, Andy!

Here is a picture of the 2.5" discharge cup and both grenades as adveritized by the seller to me. I swapped the parts around so that all the 36M parts were on the 36M (I hope!). My avatar shows the grenades prior to repainting the fadded colors.
