Original German WWII 98k Rifle Schießbecher Anti-Personnel Grenade Round with Case - Inert
Cos is the maker code for Gebruder Merz, Merz-Werke, Frankfurt, Main. The case is in very good condition, with the expected wear from age and long storage. The inside of the bakelite base is also marked with maker code aux / 44, for Polte-Werke, Werk Magdeburg, a maker of ammunition.
The grenade would be used with a propellant cartridge and Schießbecher (shooting cup) grenade launcher to direct the projectile. Unlike many grenade launchers, the German launcher had a short rifled barrel with a caliber of 30 mm, which engaged the rifling ridges on the bottom of the bakelite grenade housing. The spin was thought to result in a more regular trajectory.
Overall a fantastic complete set of a Gewehr Spreng Granat 30 round with original packaging.
