    ~ WW1 German 'Ink Pot' Rifle Grenade ~


    This is a Karabingranate 1917, a German counter part of the French Viven-Bessière grenade which the French introduced in 1916, revolutionizing the trench warfare.

    Based on the same general principles than the French VB, it was likewise cylindrical, innerly prefragmentated, introduced in a sleeve fixed to the Mauser infantry rifle, propelled by a conventional ammunition combustion gasses, and explosive after a fixed time triggered by the passing of the bullet inside of a central tube.

    Major differences were found in its bigger size (6 cm diameter instead of 5 cm for the VB), and by the ignition system, not triggered by the bullet hitting a small hammer like with the VB, but instead igniting a lateral starter communicating with the detonator via a radial channel.

    The maximum range could reach 180 m.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The grenade weighs 435 grams and its diameter is 2.36 inches (6 cm).

    ~ Condition ~

    The grenade is inert.

    Its overall condition is fair for its age with general pitting and surface rust.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
