    Default M24 need information

    I impulse bought this 1939 M24, the stick is marked hkz waffenampt 39, there is a serial number of 12288 and a 39 on the base close to the cap. The steel body is marked RR564 1939 and a Waa64(i think its pretty faded). The cap has the numbers 44, 331 and 10022 stamped in it. I have never had the chance to handle a real M24 and I'm hoping I made a good choice. Click image for larger version.

    Seems to be a replica. Wooden stick does not look good, white porcelan ball is 100% wrong. As for the grenade head I'm not sure but marking is very weird and so maybe it is fake too. Sorry for the bad news.

    Sadly I agree ..... the ball and end cap kills any chance it had ...

    The screws heads must be round and no flats. Markings on the wood are not OK.

    A replica indeed.
    Zebra post here for opinions before buying. That's the golden rule.

    Agreed with all the above; wrong from top to bottom. Even the screw cap is wrong, but hte lettering is the biggest give away. Wrong font. Pitty because I just sold a very nice original M24, and never got my money, but nobody here seem to had any interest in it.

    Sorry to hear. I hope the item is still in your possession though, coz if you lost both money and the grenade it would be very sad.
