    ~ Inert WW1 German M1917 Egg Grenade With Igniter ~


    The Model 17 Eierhandgranate (egg hand grenade, a.k.a. egg
    grenade) was a small hand grenade used by Germany during the
    First World War.

    The small size steel cast body took the shape of an egg,
    therefore giving this grenade its nickname.

    The egg grenade appeared in the beginning of 1917, as a
    complement to the other heavier and more cumbersome
    grenades. The average soldier could throw an egg grenade 40
    meters or farther.

    Initially entirely smooth, the body was modified later that year
    to include a fragmented belt to improve handling.

    The grenade was used with a series of different ignition plugs.

    This grenade is fitted with an igniter with metal hook, possibly a
    launching hook.

    It is stamped ‘H (maybe F, maybe R) G, A, 4’.

    The grenade still has remnants of its original red paint.

    The grenade is empty and inert.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The grenade has a diameter of 4.5cm (1 ¾ inches) and a total
    length of 12cm (4 ¾ inches) including plug etc.

    It weighs 290g.

    ~ Condition ~

    The grenade is in a nice condition for its age with only a little damage to the belt.

    The screw thread is in good order so the fuse can easily be
    removed.

    ~ Postage ~

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