    They were filled with Thermite and the case is usually Magnesium alloy I think. The nasty bit that sets it off is in the tapered end and is a type of explosive set off by percussion to get the Thermite and Magnesium going. Thermite is reasonably safe unless it gets wet, it doesn't like water. A lot of these things didn't go off due to soft landings/malfunction, so until someone comes along with more knowledge to give you the skinny on it I would assume it to be live until proven otherwise, but I would'nt imagine it's gonna go pop unless you start bashing it or throwing it in water or such. Just a guess really though!
    DAMN! so hitting it with a hammer to see if it was hollow wasn't my best idea of the year?.... I jest of course

    Keeping live ordnance in full knowledge is an outright offence which could come under the Terrorism Act , at the very least reckless endangerment of the public and under circumstances these days could result in criminal proceedings , a heavy fine , imprisonment or both ,,is it worth it for a bit of metal????

    Hi Dave, i had no intention on having this if live. Said that from the start. The old chap is also aware of this and has said once he has a positive ID he will act accordingly and with my help and direction. He is an old man, currently unaware of the status (for want of a better word) of this item. Hence why he asked me to go away and find out for him which is what i have done so he can act responsibly and legally.

    Dave and I go back a long way, as does the banter, and besides my reputation of something of a Robert Redford look-a-like silver tongued cavalier, he knows of my interest in taxidermy and was reffering to that. Here's a squirrel i've just finished mounting.
