Soviet F1 instructional / sectioned Grenade (1 available) - O 107
This is an official sectioned / instructional Russian F1 defensive grenade. Defensive because the thrower has to be in cover when using it as he would be in danger from the fragments. The Soviet F-1 hand grenade, nicknamed the limonka (lemon grenade) is an anti-personnel fragmentation, or 'defensive' grenade. It contains a 60 gram explosive charge (TNT). The total weight of the grenade with the fuse is about 600 grams. The UZRGM fuse is a universal Russian type also used in the RG-41, RG-42, and RGD-5 grenades. The fuse time is 3.5 to 4 seconds. The F1 was introduced during WW2 and subsequently redesigned post-war. It has a steel exterior that is ribbed to generate fragmentation upon detonation and to prevent hands from slipping. The distance the grenade can be thrown is estimated at 30-45 meters. The radius of the shrapnel dispersion is up to 200 meters (effective radius is about 30 meters, by some sources ). The F1 grenade has been supplied to various foreign countries over the years, including Iraq and other Arab nations, and there are different production variations according to country of origin (in terms of finish, markings and spoon/lever design). Though obsolete and no longer in production, it can still be encountered in combat zones. Complete, inert, examples of this grenade are available on the site. Price includes UK delivery.

RGD-5 Sectioned Instructional Russian Offensive Grenade. - O 106
This is an official Soviet military sectioned / instructional RGD-5 offensive grenade. ' Offensive' because the thrower does not need to be in cover when using this grenade and it can be used when attacking so long as it is thrown a reasonable distance or the thrower is behind light cover. The RGD5 was developed after WW2. In contrast to the pineapple design used in WW2, the RGD-5 has a smooth casing with a crimp line running around the middle of the grenade. The body consists of two sheet-steel havles crimped together with an interior fragmentation liner, similarly to the M67 grenade. The fuse is taller, thinner, and more rounded compared to American grenades, and is hermetically sealed to the body. This means the RGD-5, and other grenades, will still detonate if dropped into water. The grenade has 110g of TNT and the liner in notched to explode into roughly 300 fragments upon detonation. The fuse gave a delay of 3-4 seconds, although the delay could vary. The blast radius was roughly 6 feet, although the grenade would do much less damage at this range if the target was prone. Price includes UK delivery.
