    Default Italian SRCM grenade

    Enjoy an inert Italian SRCM grenade, that is missing the pull tab/safety strip.
    You can find excellent photos and operation in the web site : Inert-Ord.Net
    It was equiped with a fail-safe mechanism that would render the grenade inoperable in the event of a misfire and an 'always fuze' concept that would cause the grenade to detonate no matter how it hit the intended target...
    I recall my late granfather's words as how the Greeks that would get hold of them-live, were deactivating them (pretty dangerous process) to create todacco/cigarette holders.
