Original German WWII 1943 dated M24 Inert Stick Grenade by Hermann Nier - Stielhandgranate

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is an excellent example of a WWII German M-1924 German Stick Grenade. This very nice example, acquired from a private estate sale, has been demilitarized according to specifications by the BATF, and is not available for export. It still retains its original porcelain bead and pullstring and the original markings can be seen on the shaft of the grenade.

The warhead has been repainted and no longer bears a manufacturer filling stamping to the front or the Waffenamt on the top. Warhead is empty and demilitarized, it screws off easily from the shaft. The top of the warhead bears the matching wood shaft stamp of fcc43.

The wood shaft of the grenade is clearly stamped with with 43 fcc O, which is the letter code for Metallwarenfabrik Hermann Nier, Beierfeld bei Schwarzenberg, Erzgebirge. The bottom end cap is still secured to the wood shaft, with the screw cap still present and easily removable.

In WW2 the stick of the German M24 (Model 24) grenade provided a lever, significantly improving the throwing distance. The Model 24 could be thrown approximately 30 to 40 yards, whereas the British Mills bomb could only be thrown about 15 yards. The design also minimized the risk of the grenade rolling downhill back towards the thrower when used in hilly terrain or in urban areas. These grenades were extremely useful for clearing out entrenched infantry positions.

As grenades were disposable, encountering them on the market is very rare, making this an excellent opportunity to acquire one to complete a WW2 ordnance collection.
