Excellent photo, that's the first time I've ever seen a frag ring for a Nipolite grenade.
Speaking of Nipolite/Niploit, I had heard that many different items were made from it. Is there a reference that has drawings or photos of more of the items, or are they spread throughout a number of manuals etc.? I have heard of "collectors" of Nipolite/Nipolit items, and was wondering of other devices/shapes.

Thanks guys! I looked it up on Google, and there is one for sale in the UK. They only want $510.84 for it, all 67 pages of it!

Guess I won't be getting a copy soon. Mad, you need to take out insurance on your copy!

Hi Poltewerke, It never ceases to amaze me the awesome stuff that shows up in here. Those pictures are most excellent. I like the pictures about as much as the ordnance itself. Great post and keep 'em coming...Dano
I would love to get a copy, or electronic scan of the pages. I see there is an original for sale in Canada for $450.00.


I've been lucky enough to see about a dozen live pieces of nipolite across Europe, most sitting, slowly molding away in bunkers because considerate techs cannot stand to see the history destroyed, but, history or not, what are you going to do? I didn't always have a camera available, but here are three I got photos of anyway.
