US MK 2 Replica Dummy "Pineapple" Hand Grenade - Prop
The Mk 2 grenade (initially known as the Mk II) is a fragmentation type anti-personnel hand grenade introduced by the U.S. armed forces in 1918. It was the standard issue anti-personnel grenade used during World War II and in later conflicts, including the Vietnam War. Replacing the failed Mk 1 grenade of 1917, it was standardized in 1920 as the Mk II, and redesignated the Mk 2 on April 2, 1945. The Mk 2 was replaced by the M26-series (M26/M61/M57) and later M33 series (M33/M67). It was phased out gradually in service beginning with the Korean War.
Replica dummy MK 2 hand grenade is made out of solid OD colored plastic resin molded from an inert grenade. With a WWII correct M10A3 silver colored plastic resin fuse, these resemble typical late war (1944-45) grenades, including the standard yellow band and solid bottom. Attached is a reproduction M10A3 metal spoon with an actual pull ring pin. At 8 oz, they are a light weight, authentic and durable accessory for any reenactor or historical display or movie prop. These are an inexpensive, safe and legal alternative to the real thing.
They are NOT intended to be used as actual practice grenades. These are a fake toy prop that cannot be made to function or used for any harmful or dangerous purpose.
