    ~ Inert WW1 German M1913 Rifle Grenade ~


    An inert First World War German M1913 Rifle grenade.

    The rifle grenade M 1913 was the first of a series of grenades
    developed in Germany intended to be launched using the
    Mauser infantry rifle armed with a blank ammunition.

    The main problem with the model M1913 was its very
    aerodynamic design which made it too effective a projectile,
    causing it to sink deep into the ground before explosion with
    lesser effects. It was followed up by the more effective (and less
    aerodynamic) M1914.

    The piece consists of a tubular cast steel fragmentation grenade
    with a brass fuse head mounted to the tip, and a small brass tail
    which is then attached to a long steel tail.

    The nose tip has a screw thread and is easily removable. The
    other parts are firmly attached.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The total length of the grenade with tail is 63cm (24 ¾ inches).

    It weighs 770g.

    ~ Condition ~

    The grenade is in a very good condition with no damages, only
    the patina and general wear expected of a piece of this age.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £16 or it can be inspected and picked up in person at our shop in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard.
