    Default Info needed on Russian PMK 40

    Hello
    This is my first post on this site so I hope I put it in the correct place. My questions concern the Russian WWII PMK 40
    antipersonnel mine.

    1 What fuse/detonator was used?
    2 There seems to be two different styles. One with a flat lid and one with a domed lid. Was this a design change or a manufacturers variation?

    Its suoer Extremaly rare items .
    Its mine made on Russian factory for blasting German Ski Gebirdjager , and it was applied in winter battle . It was put during snow.
