U.S. M26 "Lemon" - Replica Hand Grenade
Marshall's Arsenal Replica Dummy M26A1 "Lemon" hand grenade is a faithful 2-piece replica (separate body and fuse that can be super glued tight) that is made of solid Olive Drab colored resin plastic. It has a solid bottom with the correct style M204A1 fuse, with NO confidence or "Jungle" clip wire slot. They have a correct type reproduction metal spoon with data on the top and metal pull ring pin. Fuse has 5/8-11" threads so later M26 and M67 fuses will work.
New Grenades DO NOT have any data markings, but a correctly sized and info paint mask stencil is available to add this yourself.
**M.A. offers an "Aged" grenade with data on the body that show some 'wear and tear'. Check'em out for sure!
A complete grenade weigh 8 oz. and although they are light weight, they are NOT intended to be thrown in reenacting events. These are ideal for costume designers, professional reenactors, cosplay enthusiasts or museum displays, where the real thing is not available, prohibited by law, too valuable or just too heavy to use. These are a great affordable reenactment gear item and look great on straps, belts, pouches, adapters and displays.
** Grenades and fuses are solid plastic resin and cannot be made into any functioning grenade.

The M26 fragmentation hand grenade was developed by the United States military to replace the WWII era MK 2. It entered service around 1952 and was used in combat and became the standard issued grenade during the Korean War. Its distinct lemon shape led it to being nicknamed the "lemon" grenade. Its Composition B filler was considered safer than the flaked or granular TNT filling used in the Mk 2. The M26 was the primary fragmentation grenade used by American forces in the Vietnam War. It was replaced with the M67 "baseball" fragmentation grenade.
