    Great post, and much needed information for those like myself, I own one but it is a dug up relic, maybe you can add some info on relic ones or some restoration tips, just a thought.

    Thank you very much for sharing. I'm just starting to look at these, but when I see the price of the originals yikes I just want one for a shadow box idea I have, but 300-500 makes my wallet scream. They are a very interesting item though. Myabe I'll talk myself into it eventually, but I'll have the knowledge first

    Thanks for the nice comments,, I'll add to the post as time goes on,, will dod some relics and cleanig tips later.

    I see a lot of fakes at shows and in collections.. It is very difficult to educate a dealer who "Knows it's a real gren" and you know 100% for sure its not, had some interesting conversations at fairs/show even better ones with collectors who have had an item for many many years and you try to inform them its a fake,
    Still , its the age old saying " You can take a horse to water,but you cant't make him drink it "

    Kind Regards nick ..

    Hello all,
    I have just traded with jeeensy and added this M43 to my collection, and show it to you for your perusal. I'm very pleased with it. This is the first genuine stick grenade I have, the other being a replica 24 which I bought years back before I knew anything about them. When the M43 arrived I was delighted to find that he had included a frag sleeve and a couple of box lables.
    Can someone let me know the correct nomenclature of the fuse which I've also seen on "egg grenades"?
    Best regards,
    navyman.
