Good job! My only comment is the blue you have used appears very dark - I thought these were quite a pale blue? However, as with most things German there is probably a whole rainbow of colours used! I note Zib Militaria's replicas come with the caps painted a pale yellow...

:D

I have a Zib replica (very heavy!) which I repainted, both body and fuze, plus a really nice lightweight stamped alloy replica that is just about spot on but I have no idea who made it unfortunately. It even has date and code stamped in the top of the fuze - cjb 44 if memory serves me right. I wish I knew who made it as I'd get some more!

Do you have any idea?

That sounds like one of the old 'Spiers Productions' grenades. They used to have an add in Gun Mart. No idea if they still make repros, their number was zero138fourfour2223three.
They did all kinds of stuff including Fausts and Teller mines.

I also got my balls from Jersey and they are doughnuts ( :lol: sorry, just had to post :lol: )

Still, it's a improvment on the original repro, if that make sence :?

Which, if I have to spell it out to you, means I believe you HAVE improved on the repro grenade and if you call me a c*nt again for prasing you up I'll tear your head off and stuff a cat down your neck!!

I do hope you learn to curb your temper and please * out all the naughty words.

Is there a circus in town? :?:

s**t i dont post on here for over a year and when i do i cause offence
im sorry you took offence to my comment i was just offering some friendly advice as a stick grenade fanatic i own 7 origional ones including an extreamly rare tan painted M24 and know an awful lot about them that even some experienced collectors dont know from the different makers right down to thread patterns (if anyone is interested let me know and i will do a write up on them like my G43 article)
i also offerd to send you some dug up porclane balls free of charge that you could use in your grenades but with a reply like that you wont get anywhere!
