    Well done that man. I allways had my doubts. Its nice to know it is a proper one after all this time, thanks, John. ps Aide, as noone has commented on my German tin hat perhaps you could have a look and give your verdict.

    Hello again,
    I'm sure this stick grenade is a repro, but can anyone tell me how to distinguish it from a genuine one, bearing in mind that I've never had the opportunity to examine a real one?
    This may be an unanswerable question but any tips would be much appreciated.
    Regards,
    navyman.

    first point , the form of the wood handle is not correct , look the real on this thread
    second point , the maker mark on the top of grenade RR564 ,i think the real maker is write ЯR not RR
    third point , the white ball is to big , the original is flat (form)


    Look the example of Bill Grist : http://warrelics.eu/forum/ordnance-a...-grenade-8398/
    look the mark ЯR on the top of grenade ЯR not RR

    Other example of Bill , the late model : http://warrelics.eu/forum/ordnance-a...r-1944-a-4198/

    Hi Guy, it is a repro. They are made in India. I suspect it came from Worldwide Arms? They had them made. They sold like "hot cakes" when they first hit the market about 10 years ago.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks both,
    I can now see the difference, and Ade, yes it came from WWA about five years ago.
