VERY nice Tamás, that is the perfect example of why I do not have a GewehrSprenggranate 30 in my collection yet, I have been waiting to find a set like yours. Someday!

WOW! That is an awesome example Klarkon. Thanks for showing the breakdown with the original fuze and explosive. What type of explosive is it, PETN/penthrite? Was it always that brownish color or is that due to age?


Also thanks for the great diagram. I did not realize there are different variations of the G.Spgr.30.

Füllung 32 : Spezialgranaten
Zusammensetzung: 90 % Nitropenta, 10 % Wachs, gepreßt

The color depends on the coloring of the added wax.............

Another example of Gewehr Sprenggranate charge :

Thank you klarkon, that is very educational. So the charge you show is Füllung 32, does that mean there were 31 other types of explosive filling options?


Did the wax "color" mean anything, or was it just basically whatever the manufacturer had available?
