Original Soviet WWII RG-42 Grenade - Inert
The Soviet RG-42 (in Russian- Ручная Граната образца 42 года / Ruchnaya Granata obraztsa 42 goda) "Hand Grenade pattern of 1942 year" was a fragmentation grenade designed by S.G. Korshunov.
It was originally introduced during World War II from 1942 onwards as an emergency measure to replace the complex RGD-33 grenade. Unlike the RGD-33, the RG-42's components were simple to produce and assemble. Only the fuze required specialized manufacture and the parts could be easily assembled by hand by cottage labor. Partisans often made copies of the simple design when out of contact.
It contained about 200 grams of explosive charge (TNT) in a cylindrical stamped-metal can. It used the 3.2 to 4 second UZRGM fuse, also used in the RGD-5, RG-41, and F1 grenades. The grenade could be thrown about 35–40 meters and has an effective blast radius of around 10 meters.
This WW2 example is offered in very good condition and is totally inert according to specifications provided by the ATF.
