My mother recently gifted me what appears to be a mk 2 “pineapple” grenade, with an m1a2 adapter for launching said grenade. Was hoping someone could help me in figuring out if it’s legitimate or not. 
 

Many thanks!IMG_9993.jpeg.1e6af67a41ec30541ba665203a96543e.jpeg

The Mk2 grenade is correct except for the fuse, and it looks to me like the adapter is reproduction.

Thank you! I thought the adapter looked a little too nice and shiny.

From memory, the adaptor is legit and 70’s production, thus the condition. Many around, most are fooled by the 1944 ink stamping. Search this forum, much on the three prong four prong variations.

Adapter is original USGI, 4-69 (April 1969) is the modification date. 
 

The body is a repainted M21 Practice Grenade (Originally Blue). The Fuze lever and Fuze body are from a pyrotechnic type grenade.
