Here is a WW1 era Austrian made Zylndergranate, a very simple design, a handle that activated the fuse was locked in place by a pull ring. There are traces of the feld-grau paint on the bottom of the grenade. It is basically an upgraded Lakos type, which was a tube grenade.

Nice complete example.  Don't see them very often with the handle and  pull ring etc. Just the tube capped at both ends.

Thanks, the Austrian Grenades are quite interesting, not much information available on them compared to other nations. There are two versions of this grenade, the other version looks almost identical except for a spring and pin added under the release handle. The Lakos types look very similar as well, but are much more slender and longer, with as you said just plugs and a fuse, with at least 10 variants known.
