    Default HEAT rifle grenade cut away models

    Hello everybody, I am trying to find pictures of HEAT rifle grenade cutaway models where I can see the interior including the cone, any picture will help, also a pic of the M9 and M9A1 US rifle grenade in cutaway would be excellent.


    Hallo an alle, ich suche Bilder von HEAT Gewehrgranaten im Schnittmodell, wo ich das Innenleben inklusive des Konus sehen kann. Jegliche Bilder sind hilfreich, aber auch von der US M9 und M9A1 wären super.

    Bitte um Hilfe!

    Chris

    Übrigens GGG, falls du das liest, hab gerade dein neues Buch bestellt, schaut echt super aus!!

    Thanks, does anybody have any more? Excellent link mate!!

    Do you sell your M9? I am a book author and really need this one for reference. Please?

    Btw what material are the cones generally of WW2 era HEAT rifle grenades? I read mild steel for German ones, is it the same for the other countries?

    Mild Steel ist was genau im deutschen Sprachgebrauch?

    Hi hcris, measured them all up;

    Pzfst 30 klein; 2,7mm
    Pzfst 30: 1,7mm on top, 2mm at base (wide part)
    Pzfst 60/90: 2,2 mm overall

    Gewehr-Pannzergranate 30: 1,5mm
    Große Gewehr-Panzergranate 40: 1,5mm
    Gewehr-Panzergranate 46: 1,2mm
    Gewehr-Panzergranate 61: 1,2mm
    GG/P40: I do not have one (and if you have one it's too expensive to cut)

    US:
    M9: 1mm
    M9A1: I do not have one

    I still have to patch up my M9 before publication, at the moment it's not much

    Can you please do another measurement for me?

    What is the inner diameter at the back of the M9 grenade? The hole where you put in the launcher.
