Original U.S. WWII Inert M11A3 Practice Grenade - Dated 1945
Original Items: Only One Available. A rifle grenade is a grenade that uses a rifle-based launcher to permit a longer effective range than would be possible if the grenade were thrown by hand.
The practice of projecting grenades with rifle-mounted launchers was first widely used during World War I and World War II and continues to the present, with the term "rifle grenade" now encompassing many different types of payloads including high explosive, fragmentation, anti-tank warheads, concussion, smoke, incendiary, and flare missiles.
Rifle grenades have largely been supplanted in the infantry fire support role by a combination of grenade launchers (typically affixed to rifles) and disposable anti-armor rockets.
The practice grenade in this lot is completely inert and unable to be rendered live again and be used as an explosive device. This example is void of any explosive content and is in total compliance with the current BATF regulations on inert ordnance.
Not Available For Export
The M11A3 was designed with replaceable components so that it may be easily repaired and re-used. This series included the M11A1 thru M11A4, each successive model incorporating cost reducing features for manufacture as well as use. Measures approximately 11.5" long and 2" in diameter and retains much of the original black paint as well as arsenal stenciling. The dome cap is still able to be removed easily for inspection of the interior.
A lovely Example ready for display.
