Default The ultimate Panzerfaust thread?

There are lots of info on Panzerfausts here on WAF, but its spread out over many threads, and some have even been deleted over the years. So maybe it would be a good idea to try to sum up all info in just one thread ?
So please Gentlemen "Feuer Frei" and post whatever info/photos/etc you might have on the subject, and also gather what can be found in other threads on WAF.

I will start of with with some photos from the production (published in "Signal" 1945).


1. Sight and firing mechanism are fitted.
2. Assembly of the heads.

I have tried to capture the text on the waterdecal (but I have missed out on #2 Should reag" Zünder Einführen, daß das Zundhütchen sichtbar ist.). I really wish that someone (Baugnez44?) could post a clear photo of the soldier handling the Panzerfaust on the decal thou.
