Reproduction U.S. WWII Mk 2 Iron Pineapple Grenade

Regular price $12.95

Item Description

New Made Item: This is a 1:1 scale size new made iron reproduction of the iconic U.S. fragmentation pineapple grenade as used in WWII. Cast from an original with an reproduction spoon trigger device, these weigh about 1.2lbs and are 4 1/2" tall. The Mk 2 defensive hand grenade is a fragmentation hand grenade (sometimes written Mk II) used by the U.S. armed forces during World War II and in later conflicts including the Vietnam War. The Mk II was standardized in 1920 replacing the Mk I of 1917. It was phased out gradually, the U.S. Navy being the last users, on 2 April 1945 the Mk II and Mk IIA1 were re-designated the Mk 2 and Mk 2A1.

Totally inert, cannot be converted to an explosive devise, not available for export.

The Mk II was commonly known as a pineapple grenade, because of its shape and structure. Grooves were cast into the cast iron shell, which was believed at the time to aid in fragmentation and had the side benefit of aiding in gripping the grenade—this provision gave it the appearance of a pineapple fruit. The Mk II was identified with an all yellow body prior to 1943. They were then painted olive drab for camouflage purposes with a narrow yellow band below the fuse.
