Article about: Hi collectors, I just want to show you some pictures of my rifle-grenade collection. That's my main interest and I have written a book about it some years ago (but it's sold out now). Enjoy

    BTW, if someone needs a good book about German WW2 manufacturer codes, please have a look here:
    http://warrelics.eu/forum/field-equi...ing-codes-530/

    And there is a good book about German WW2-plastics/bakelit and codes/logos written by Darrin Weaver:
    Kunststoffe A Collector's Guide to German WWII PLastics and Their Markings

    Many thanks GGG,
    Is that a blank cartridge specifically for use as a propellant, and I suppose there was a wad under the splitting message case?
    Cheers,
    Guy.

    Hello,
    yes it is a kind of blank cartridge. The Germans developed many different cartridges to launch the grenades ... about 20 at the end of the war

    There was a cardboard disk (Treibspiegel) between the charge and the leaflet-case.
