    I know this was not on a flea mart table...its a great conversation piece,,,and go through the motions of how it works....most likely unbelief will be seen in their eyes then fright.......tap it on the table top a few times too...that gets them very nervous too

    Eric, you should be able to find an original lever, pin/ring
    assembly and striker with spring for this grenade.
    Although the pieces may or may not be WWII
    era, they will fit and function perfectly.........
    Regards,


    Steve.
