    Hate to say it but I was fooled. But I don't have much invested in it, no one at that auction knew what it was so I got it cheap. Cheers, Robert

    It's a good one! One of the best fakes around. Markings on the stick are wrong, so is the type of lettering on the grenade itself. Some other things wrong with it too, like the nails on the adapter (they look like screws on yours).
    Think we had one of these pass by some months ago on the forum?
    Nice item to dress up a manequin, but at the end of the day it is what it is, a good fake.

    I am afraid it had me fooled. Oh well it goes well with my display for no more than I have in it.

    Quite a few of those still kicking around. However, I must say that I do like them I mean, I know they're copies an all but still, good copies and better than the 'all wooden' ones you see. At least someone has taken the time to try and get it right

    I have one in my collection and it sits next to an authentic Mills and Pineapple grenade. Makes a great talking point and a heck of a lot cheaper than an original

    Even though a fake, it still looks good. As you got it cheap, you can just count yourself lucky. Itll look good with other TR stuff and you saved a bundle. Congrats. I quite like it.
