Original Items: Very Few Available. These are genuine very good condition inert examples of The Soviet RGD-33 (Ручная Граната Дегтярева образца 33 года) Ruchnaya Granata Degtyareva obraztsa 33 goda, “Hand Grenade, Degtyarev design, pattern year (1933”) an anti-personnel fragmentation stick grenade developed in 1933.
The grenade is composed of three separate pieces that were stored in different crates until use: the warhead and optional sleeve, spring-loaded handle, and fuze tube. They were assembled and issued only before combat. The warhead and handle were screwed together and carried in a grenade pouch and the fuzes were wrapped in waxed paper and carried separately in the pouch’s internal pocket. There was a hole in the outer handle to the right of the thumb catch that lined up with bars of paint on the inner handle, making a colored dot – a white dot meant safe and a red dot meant the handle assembly was cocked. It would not be armed unless the fuze tube had been inserted, which would be done only before throwing.
These examples were recovered from the field, where they had been exposed to the elements for several years. All are complete with rare fragmentation sleeve, inert and complete, but show some minor rust and age. Overall wonderful examples of genuine battlefield pickup RGD-33s, ready for display!
