Description

FUSE – CA 1890 – WWI IGNITERS FOR BAG GUNS. THEY WILL FIT EGG AND KUGEL GRENADES BUT ARE INSTANT IGNITION. THE GERMANS WOULD BOOBY TRAP GRENADES WITH THESE AND LEAVE THEM BEHIND IN A TRENCH MUCH TO THE DISMAY OF AN ALLIED SOLDIER WHO TRIED TO USE ONE. I WAS TOLD BY A WWII VET THAT THEY ALSO WOULD SHORTEN THE FUSE IN A PINEAPPLE GRENADE AND LEAVE IT BEHIND IN AN ENEMY AREA – SAME RESULTS. I HAVE HAD A FEW GERMAN KUGEL & EGG GRENADES WITH THESE IGNITERS IN THEM (INERT OF COURSE) AND THEY DID LOOK NICE IN THEM. THE SOLDIERS WHO SOUVENIRED THEM WOULD NOT KNOW THE DIFFRENCE ONCE THEY WERE DEACTIVATED. PRICED EACH.
