MK 2A1 Grenade

Recommended Posts

Hey all, new to this forum.

 

I had a box of .38 special under the tree to feed my new victory model revolver, as well as this:

Its a legit WW2 Mk 2A1 pineapple grenade!! Manufactured by American Fireworks company. (which I believe made grenades up to 1943) I saw this at a gunshow in November and the seller told me the black handle is quite rare. I dont know if this is true or not, but does anyone here know?? I was SOOO bummed when I went back to purchase it and it was gone. My Dad snuck back to the show before me and bought it!!! Like I said this morning:

 

"Nothing says I love you like explosives!!!" (yes it is DE-milled)

Nice one! I have heard that in order to make these legal, you need to have drilled a hole in the bottom, is that true?

Weren't the spoons usually an adonized green and tip dipped in either black or a rust red paint?

Freedom isnt free... it must be paid for. Too often it is paid for by the blood of patriots. For those who have paid their share, Freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

Credit where credit is due!

 

Mike (Dirt Detective) is a great guy. He supplied me with a correct fuse assembly for my M15 restoration project in 2010. Thanks again Mike!
