    Default Collecting inert grenades in California?

    Does anyone know of the laws surrounding inert ordnance in California?
    Do they have to be cemented/filled in? Can they just be empty and inert?

    I'm having some difficulty finding clear information.
    Also, are there any dealers in the U.S that deal pieces such as F1 Soviet grenades?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    SECTION 19200-19290




    19200. (a) Except as provided in Section 19205 and Chapter 1
    (commencing with Section 17700) of Division 2, any person in this
    state who manufactures or causes to be manufactured, imports into the
    state, keeps for sale, or offers or exposes for sale, or who gives,
    lends, or possesses any metal military practice handgrenade or metal
    replica handgrenade is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail
    not exceeding one year or in the state prison.
    (b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), a first offense involving any
    metal military practice handgrenade or metal replica handgrenade

    handgrenade that is a relic, curio, memorabilia, or display item,
    that is filled with a permanent inert substance, or that is otherwise
    permanently altered in a manner that prevents ready modification for

    If anyone asks, just tel them it's a paperweight, and put some post-it notes under each one I haven't heard anything about grenades in cali, just all the laws about firearms. I see soviet stuff at militaria and gun shows now and again, but haven't seen too much on line.
    I've bought stuff from this site before, they're pretty good, and they seem to move merchandise fairly steady, so if they're sold out now, it's not too long of a wait before they get something else in Ostfront - German and Russian WWII militaria.
