Unknown US Hand Grenade


Premium/Ordnance Approved
Ordnance approved
Ok, this is almost the same size as the M26. There are no markings on it or the fuze. The body is hard plastic and the inside of the grenade is a white plastic matrix with small steel bb's embedded in it.

At one time it was filled with a nitro-based explosive (not TNT) based on the chemical tests we ran. The nearest I have been able to get is that it might be experimental from Picatinny in the very early 1950's.

Has anyone see anything like it before?
