ID:	761738some recent additions. An US WWII era M17 Rifle grenade w/ MKII grenade body. These had impact fuses but were later replaced with the M1 projection adapter rich used grenade "as is" with delay fuse. Next is WWII German M24 Stielhandgranate. This is the only one I've got with markings still visable. Been wanting one of these for a while. The last of the Third Reich stick grenades was the M43. Unlike the M24, the fuse was located in the top of the grenade and the handle is solid. This example isn't in the condition the M24 is, but much harder to come by.

    Next, a WWI BRITISH No.34 MKIII Grenade (1918) in very nice condition. These were England's answer to the 1917 Eihandgranaten of Imperial Germany. Small, light easily carried.
    And a WWII German Wurfkorper 361 Lp. This is basically a M39 grenade adapted to be fired from the standard flare gun. It contained internal impact fuse.
