    YES it very well could explode. Call the authorities. These things get unstable. Do not try to unscrew the base plug.

    There is the possibility that it is indeed live. 'FW' indicates that
    it was made in Canada by Frost and Woods in 1942.........

    I feel QUICK PROOF IS SERIOUSLY NEEDED. I would get rid of that thing fast and call the authorities...before you dont turn 21....it is possible it may be a dummy as being 8 yrs old and you have not blown off your arms and legs,,throwing it around in the back yard has its possibilities. Put it someplace far from harm. Live Ordnance just like spiders gives me the creeps.

    You will not be able to remove the base plug and filler plug
    - they'll be firmly seated in place and will not turn. If you
    try it with tools, you will only strip and ruin them.

    With the 'wings', lever, spring and plunger missing,
    it could be a 'blank', as it cannot be armed.

    It is worth something to a collector.........!

    Thanks Steve...Its unnerving to me sometimes to see this stuff..especially when someone doesnt know if its live or not.

    It would be wise to not tinker with the grenade. The thought that it is a training grenade is not a proven fact. Life is worth more than a few dollar the item may be worth. I recall back in the 1980's, a veteran brought his souvenirs to me at a motel buy. Among the items were two German mines. My first question to him was if they were inert. He replied, I THINK I disarmed them before I brought them back and he immediately started to take one apart! At that moment, I did not know if I had five more seconds of life or not. Luckily, his memory was correct. These items were meant to maim and kill and MUST be taken seriously.
    Welcome to the Forum. Don't tinker with the grenade as we want to hear from you again!
