M39 ‘Egg’ Grenade


Achtung Spitfire!

Recommended Posts

Nice example of an M39 I picked up recently. It’s the earlier version a belt ring was added in 1942.

It has a Brennzunder Eifer igniting 1939 BZE 39 blue 4.5 delay blue fuze.

There we’re red 1 second delay fuses apparently but I’ve never seen one.

Recent acquisition. The later version with the belt hook. The ring holder is badly corroded but it’s still holding the ring in place….. just about.

Nice manufactures stamp.
