    Datrus They're Great finds, I love that huge shell but if Id discovered it I'd have been very careful, how did you discover it was empty and inert?. In a couple of your pictures I saw a light dusting of snow, so if you went out searching in it well done for making the effort.
    All the best and good luck with your next search.

    Well. It was not exactly inert when we found it. Most things are not here. Unfortunately. It was possible to perform deac on it. If things is rusted together so to speak, it is not possible. Just file gently along the seam of the projectile and fuse cap. Screw off the fuse cap, blast the fuse itself and remove it. Empty the shell and burn the content. I don't know the correct technical english terms. Sorry for that. It's not something we often do i must say. Also people should not do this unless they have experience with it. Yes it already started to snow here, and we plan to go in the near future again before it get too cold. We have a "deep searcher". I forgot what it's called in english. It's a horizontally held long rod with a search head in each end. We will go on the frozen rivervs, lakes and ponds to detect metal, and then do some magnet fishing. Also it's good to know these places when spring comes and bring a small rubber boat. Winther is good, because there is no mosquitos. But it's d..... cold.

    These Soviet "metal bottles" are gas mask parts, bayonet is Mosin Nagant, Teilkartuschen are for German 8cm minethrower. Nice finds but be careful with live ammo. I do not suggest to deactivate such things.

    Thank you for the info Frundsberg. I am still not so familiar to Soviet equipment. Did the Mosin not have a side folding bayonet? I am familiar to old munitions, as i have been working with these in the army(Engineer). Yes, one takes a big risk every time one handles old munitions. I my regiment we cracked open old WW 1 and 2 shells with cutting charges, split them right down the middle, then being able to remove explosives, detonators and fuses. Some old munitions can handle quite "knock", but not all. Not recomendable.

    The M44 carbine had a side folding bayonet. These were sighted in at the factory with them extended, because Soviet military doctrine called for bayonets to be fixed at all times. That's why they made them so damn hard to get on and off an M91/30.
