    Hey guys,heres a pic of the fuzes I have..most come with the adaptor to allow fitment to the standard US 1/2 and 1 pound TNT blocks plus a standard grenade fuze well but some come with that threaded section permanently sure to begin with the idea of using grenades with the various booby trap fuzes was a bit of a after thought but as the war progressed they did intentionally produce fuzes suited solely for attachment to prepacked explosive devices and also with the adaptors in place you could use them for either prepacked charges,grenades of any type or you could attach detcord in the same fashion as you would have done with the older spring snouts so a bit more choice if you're the demo bloke.
    Sorry bout the pic on its side..cant get the lil bugger too turn...
