    Hi Steve,

    Some of the Japanese parts can be found and identified on this website ; Japanese WWII Hand & Rifle Grenades - Inert-Ord.Net :
    but I didn't want to "borrow" their pics for pointing out some of your items

    Others will probably enjoy that website as well.

    Good luck, to who points out all the items

    Cheers,

    Grant

    Hey Grant, kind of take back part of what i said about inert ords site being incomplete. The Japanese section is pretty complete and informative. I will help make the other site I mentioned more complete, when my pics get finally posted.

    Hello Allan!! good to see you here. Did not know you ventured here also. It's a great site, like yours!

    OK, we have a winner!! Almost. I see 2 question marks in your answers, and one answer is incorrect, the most scarce part you answered semi-correct, deduct 3 points. Plus you missed a couple items. ZONK!! Try again.

    Also the "Dutch No1" button could also be for a No.3 like this one.
    See pic.

    When every one is done guessing, I will post pics of all the items these go to, and installed in/on them. I will be a good visual for members not that familiar with all the different countries WW2 grenades and small mines.

    Regards, Steve

    Sure you are allowed as many guess as you want, until someone gets it 100% right. I should also add, there are a couple parts that are NOT grenade or mine related, to throw people off a little.

    I will review your answers this time.

    OK, looked at it. Getting very close. Did you have anybody help you?? It is against the rules if you had help.

    What WW2 Soviet fuse does the lever go to? What are the names of the other 3 WW2 Soviet fuses?

    The "Russian det" is incorrect, and the US "fly off" is incorrect, but is US.

    Yes, a percussion cap/primer, but from what grenade or small mine? what country? might let this one go, because it was used in a few things.

    What is the screw to? threads should be a give away, and believe it was mentioned already.

    The 2 small "wires" I do not think anyone will get, so might let that go. They are not from a mine fuse/shear wire, but from a WW2 grenade. I should mention it is broken, and missing a small piece.

    Right now you are very doing well, and if you get get no further, and no one else beats your score, I will break the genuine imaginary real fake SS dog tag in half, and you will receive half an imaginary real genuine fake SS dog tag.
    Pretty good prize, huh??

    Hi Spotter, OK, you won the contest. Where do I send the real fake dog tag to?

    Ok, here are the other answers you indicated by your ? in your picture with arrow pointers, in case anyone wants to know.

    The screw, I do not even know what it is to, I think a stock screw for German Mauser 98k maybe. I know it is a wood screw, and for a rifle stock butt plate.

    The "part of US fly off lever is actually a "fly off" cap and pull pin for the original MkI "pineapple grenade" from WW1 that had the side swing lever. This cap never had the longer "handle on it" also called the "spoon" A very hard to find bit to find if you need one. It did not "fly off", you had to pull the pin, and then shake the cap off. It was a very poor design, as was design of the orig. "side swing" fuse. They shortly changed it, as you probably already know.

    The "Russian grenade lever" is a Soviet WW2 manufacture UZRG fuse handle. Look similar to modern ones still made, but slight differences.

    The percussion cap is from a WW2 US M2 bounding mine fuse.

    the "shear pins" are a broken brass cotter pin from a WW2 Soviet Koveshnikov fuse, like the 3 shown you correctly named (1 with handle, 2 without)

    The 2 Kovesnikov fuses without handles came from F1 Soviet WW2 F1 grenades rigged as Boobytraps. This is what I was told from archeologist/diggers in Poland, Russia I bought them from. They say they were rigged as traps. I believe this may may be true, as it makes sense to break the handle off, so it would not get caught on anything, and increase the chances of the boobytrap functioning properly. They are both broke in the same place, and they were not broken off recently.

    Very good Allan, you did very well, thanks for playing along.


    Regards, Steve
