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 grenade". As the name implies it is quite heavy and large, measuring about 5 1/2 inches tall and 2 3/4 inches across at the widest point. It features a standard fragmentation pattern on the body.

This example features the "Jam Top" design, which has a top cap that attaches much like the lids of early jars of Jam. Attached to this is a typical early type "wick" fuse with the protective covering still intact. These were relatively primitive, where the soldier had to light the fuze and then throw the grenade.

This is the first example of this type that 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 cap removes easily to allow inspection of the interior.
