Nebelhandgranate 41: Smoke Hand Grenade 41 and Prototype

Nebelhandgranate 41: Smoke Hand Grenade 41 and PrototypeThe prototype of this grenade is comprised of the body of the smoke hand grenade 39 with a synthetic resin adapter to hold the B. Z. E. igniter. The Model 41 is of similar construction but the body has been modified so that the igniter fits into a small central neck without the use of an adapter. There are only two smoke holes instead of eight. The friction igniter operates with a 4-5 second delay, setting off a 2-minute smoke discharge.
