    So, which one is right?
    Thanks very much.

    By the way, I would like to provide model files for free, but you may need a 3D printer to print it.

    I don't know where you're based - it's not on your profile....but I'd take a measure to one of the big Shows and simply measure a real one. There's a big show in the UK at the weekend...there'll be a number of folk selling ordinance.....pick it up, slap on a cheap digital micrometer...bob's ya uncle! Similarly, there'll be a load of folk on here who've got one or two....but do they have to measurement tools to get it exact???? or simply buy a deac/inert one yourself...measure it...sell it on. Good luck

    I would use Grenade: British and Commonwealth Hand and Rifle Grenades
    Landers, Rick; Bonney, Norman; Oakley, Gary ISBN 10: 1876713054 ISBN 13: 9781876713058. The detail in there was supplied by the British MOD, (I know for a fact). That is the best reference book on British Grenades. Norman Bonney is on several forums, (not this one) and if you approach him nicely I'm sure he would help.

    Alternative as these Grenades have been obsolete since the adoption of the L109 Grenade try a request to the MOD or National Archive or British Library, (or even the Imperial War Museum / National Army Museum).

    Sorry but you are not in the club so don't get access without hoop jumping.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I tried register @ bocn sereral times but failed.

    Indeed, we can easy get the data about the grenades used in WWII, but there is no so many searching about UK grenades in cold war.

    I will try on.
