Once upon a time, I had a G98 (Gewehr 98) that had been re-arsenaled by the Turks. :dunno:

Sorry, I don't have any pictures accept in an older issue of Shotgun News. I will try to copy it and see how it comes out.

The G98 was/is a true hand grenade made by Glock for the Austrian military. This was maybe two or three years back. It had a round plastic casing and held 3,000 steel balls (don't remember the diameter) and also had a time select fuse device with two or three delay choices on it. I don't remember what the powder was nor the weight. I never heard of any other country's military adopting it.

Just a little interesting trivia. MTCW! "And now you know the rest of the story.":supergrin:

No, pics as yet. Still trying to find them, but have had family visiting and not been able to do much looking. I will try again. :wavey:
