Got mine today.
WOO HOO..
Did you note the RING with the holes in it...is alwost EXACTLY the same diameter as the inside of the nozzle?

Not enough holes though...and too far apart. Unless, more were added.

Gotcha..

I just checked it.

You might know this but I think the booster goes the other way in your photo.
Is that a real grenade?

Serafino was right, the OD of the Ring fits perfect inside a Graflex Clamp.

Where in the world is everybody getting these things? Are they available in some corner grocery store somewhere? I can barely find pictures of these things, let alone anyone who's selling them.

Booster?
Ok....sure.

hehehe

Re: the Grenade. Its a REALLY nice Copy of a Grenade....made by a WWII enthusiast.

Nothing againts the other replicas I have seen, but this one looks like a real grenade, and not something freshly machined.

I confirmed that the boosters with the Flash Hider attached are the same as the ones with out the flash hider.

The Flash hider is permenently attached to the front Hex Bolt which, like the other version, unscrews from the heat sink part.

The cotter pin is to hold the Flash Hider on. The Heatsink was tack welded onto the barrel housing.

All of the ones I've seen so far have a small weld on 1 of the fins always in the same spot.

I also talked to a guy that said there were 3 versions.

1) just the Booster with no Flash Hider
2) Booster with Flash Hider that unscrews.
3) Booster with Flash Hider permenently attached.

Original grenades were freshly machined once. :) Start with a proper machined steel replica and age it appropriately and the crispness remains where it should and erodes where it should, and you end up with something like Laszlo's Chen grenade, blowtorched, left out in the fog and rain, shown here only partway through its natural weathering process. :D
