Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice totally inert BATF complaint Austrian Schwergranate or Schwerhandgranate, which literally translates to "heavy hand granade". As the name implies it is quite heavy and large, measuring about 5 1/4 inches tall and 2 1/8 inches across at the widest point. It features a standard fragmentation pattern on the body, and the top fuze is still covered by the nearly impossible to find original metal screw cap.

There is not much information on these, but there look to have been 2 patterns made, and we believe that this is the first, with a more round body. It has a round bottom, so it cannot be made to stand on its end.

This is the first example we have seen, and it is in great shape, with lots of the original exterior finish, and only a bit of rust on the fuze area. The top assembly still unscrews (reverse threaded), so the internal explosives cavity can be viewed, and the fuze cap is also removable.

Very rare and ready to display!
