Original Japanese WWII Imperial Japanese Type 100 Grenade Discharger - Battlefield Relic

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a 100 percent inoperable Japanese Type 100 Grenade Discharger. This is unable to be used as a destructive device, nor does it contain any explosive content.

This is a lovely relic condition Type 100. This appears to have been dug up from a battlefield after spending many years buried in the earth. There are no moving parts and all pieces are now fused together. Besides all of the rust and pitting, this is still a lovely display piece perfect for the Imperial Japanese ordnance collector, at an even more lovely price.

Comes ready for display!

The Type 100 grenade discharger was introduced in 1939 as a grenade launcher for the Type 38 and Type 99 Arisaka rifles. It launches standard Type 91 and Type 99 hand-grenades. The launcher is somewhat unusual in that rather than using the more common cup designs it is a gas trap system, meaning that it incorporates a barrel extension which taps off excess propellant gasses to launch the grenade from a cup offset from the barrel. This has the advantage that standard rifle cartridges could be used along with the standard hand-grenades which simplified logistics, at the expense of increased weight and decreased efficiency. The effective range is approximately 100 yards (91 m).
