Information for U.S. Mk2 Pineapple hand grenade:
his is a superb two-piece resin reproduction of the U.S. Mk2 Pineapple fragmentation hand grenade, it might be resin but it feels and looks like an original! Amazing. Cast from a silicon mold of an original de-milled grenade to exacting precision; it has all the correct details of the original, like a pull out steel ring and pin, but is totally inert.
The Mk 2 defensive hand grenade is a fragmentation hand grenade (sometimes written Mk II) used by the U.S. armed forces during World War II and in later conflicts including the Vietnam War. The Mk II was standardized in 1920 replacing the Mk I of 1917. It was phased out gradually, the U.S. Navy being the last users, on 2 April 1945 the Mk II and Mk IIA1 were re-designated the Mk 2 and Mk 2A1.
