H042881 M24 STICK GRENADE. (Stielhandgranate M24)
BACKGROUND: The high explosive, concussion, M24 stick grenade was a modification of the WWI German M1915 stick grenade and was to become the most common grenade used by Germany during WWII. Modifications of the M24 resulted in the longer M39 grenade in 1939 and the M43 grenade with a different fuze insertion configuration in 1943. The M24, M39 and M43 grenades were all armed with TNT with a four to five second time delay fuse and had an effective radius of approximately twelve to fourteen yards.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: M24 stick hand grenade with a sheet metal construction head and a lathed, subtly contoured, natural hardwood handle with a magnetic sheet metal fitting to both the top and bottom ends. The top end of the handle has a screw threaded sheet metal fitting. The top fitting was designed to screw into the bottom of the sheet metal grenade head. The bottom of the wooden handle has a removable, screw threaded sheet metal cap with a corresponding screw threaded sheet metal receiver. Pull ball is present but the string is missing. The sheet metal head retains most of its original field-grey paint. Maker marked and dated for 1939. Nice!
