New high quality M-24 Stick grenade (Stielhandgranate 24)
also known as a Potato Masher. These have all the detail
of an original including removable die-struck metal heads
and crafted wood handles.
The top of the head is stamped with manufacturer number
code, date and waffenamt, finished with dark fieldgray
paint and lettering: VOR GEBRAUCH SPRENGKAPSEL EINSETZEN,
"BEFORE USE, INSERT DETONATOR".
The smooth unfinished hollowed out
wood handle is stamped with maker code hkz, waffenamt and
dated 39. Some of the handle markings are faint but they
are there. The bottom of the handle is fitted with a
threaded screw cap hiding the porcelain ball and pull
cord. These feel like the real thing. The handles are an unfinished but could still use a quick rub with a fine grit sandpaper to look a little more like the 75+ year old originals.
Overall length: 14 1/4 inches
Handle: 11 inches
Canister: 3 1/4 inches
