This is the Soviet 82mm BK-881(БК-881), a high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) fin stabilized, projected grenade also made in Poland, Bulgaria and North Korea with the BK-881M being the same grenade except with a copper shaped-charge (SC) cone, intended to defeat armored targets with the training version being designated PBK-881.

The BK-881 projected grenade should not be confused as a mortar (it is not fired via a mortar tube) or a projectile (it has no driving band). Upon firing, a flame from the percussion igniter cartridge passes through perforations in the propellant boom, initiating the propellant. When sufficient pressure builds up in the chamber of the weapon, the fiber disk is blown from the rear of the cartridge and the grenade is propelled into flight. On impact, fuze detonates the main charge.

This example retains much of the original dark gray paint and has faint black stenciling. There is soviet arsenal stamping and marks in the tube and warhead.

This is a wonderful example of a hard to find piece of ordnance! Comes more than ready for further research and display!
