    It looks to be correct for the training grenades of a bit longer ago, the later type had a double finger set at front. Here's a site for you to memorize...very informative. American Grenades

    The markings used on "Overlord" were simply to end this issue. The bold and quite over the top black and white stripes proved allied air superiority and the lack of need of concealment on the ground...

    They sure cut the forend down, wonder why so radical...? Let us see when it's done, these are a neat and seldom seen addition.

    I never let go of that dream until too old. The guy they sent couldn't climb, had no experience and was far too large anyway. I could have climbed with the Alpini...long time ago now.

    I'd still have a go, just to see. It'd be like trying to stabilize one of those buntliners for some gentleman's offhand shooting.

    If you're just firing live primed cases, that will happen. There's no chamber pressure to flatten them out. Try a factory new case and prime them to test. You must have a couple factory new...

    Very, very nice blade. Yes, I believe it was parkerized for war because it should have been left bright at manufacture. I think they started parkerizing them in 1917? Had it been WW2 they likely...

    I have one here as an example and that's all. I tried to fit one many years ago and tore it while trying. Maybe if you warm it up it'll get pliable.

    I'll bet if you took that pipe off at about 3" and crown, mill and slide a fat blade in for a sight, it'll shoot heavy loads in little rathole groups. I'd put a Hogue monogrip on it as well. Those...
