    Hey mister...whats in the box?

    Recommended Posts

    Looks like an Armorers chest I used to have for British Enfield rifles from WWI. Sadly none of the parts, just the chest and ended up selling it off a few years before we moved. Was a nice heavy wooden chest with compartments inside for the various repair/replacement parts for said rifles.

    I can't clearly see the markings but the one on the front lower corner looks German, and knowing your love of German MG's I'm assuming it's such a chest for a German MG from WWI. Least that's my best guess.beer.gif

    I can see what looks like Handgrenaten on the lid. Hardy, is that Eierhgr. stamped on the front right corner?

    If so, I still have a very nice example. Do you remember looking at that one Chris?

    Damn that is nice!!

    Chris, how did they distribute the different kinds of grenades? Everyone knows the classic "potato masher" but more and more often I read about WWI German egg grenades. Was it a case of you used what you had? Were stick grenades used more for assult, since their blast radius was smaller??

    Do you have the silver screw on lids? Why didn't I buy them all back then instead of just one? I could kick myself.

    If you're lucky you might see some at the show over the weekend.
