    According to Grzegorz Franczyk book „Polskie granaty 1919-1939" (Polish grenades 1919-1939), published in Krakow in 2010, wz.33 grenade was a modified version of the wz.23 grenade. It was used with the wz. GR31 fuse marked with the red stripe on the top (delay of 4-4,5 seconds). The grenade was painted with khaki paint.
    Grenades were marked on the body with letters indicating producers:
    K – Fabryka Maszyn I Odlewnia Metali Wladyslawa Klimka, Krakow
    B – unknown
    M – unknown
    W. (with dot) – Fabryka Maszyn I Narzedzi Rolniczych „Wolski I Spłka" Lublin

    K is rather for Klimek (owner of the factory). Dots mean hardness of the body - from 1 dot (softest) up to 4 dots (hardest).

    Availability? You can buy them on the Polish auctionary website or dug out on the battlefield Yes, both answers are correct. If you check Polish aucrionary website you will see at least three offers presently (with bids starting from 1 PLN and reaching 129 PLN now - but definitively it is not a final price). The second option is more difficult since the law became more severe for illegal searchers...
