I have one but not much original finish is left and I need the pin and ring.  Any odds and ends considering letting go?

Yep, another grenade collector here.  I don't check in here very often but noticed your recent Facebook posts.  Not too many new collectors with a nice T-13 like that one...great start.

 

It can be an addictive habit, just like machine guns and accessories, but most new additions are more affordable than a new subgun, so that's a plus.  Unfortunately, nice examples of scarcer grenades are getting very hard to find. Many of the better types used to come from overseas but Customs restrictions have gotten very tough since 9-11.

 

I've been gathering them since the 1960s and have hundreds at this point.  But like any collection, the thrill of finding a new one is half of the fun.  Enjoy your new hobby!

You're right, it is addicting. Last week I bought 2 more Mills, 6 MKII's and 3 French grenades

There's a couple decent Facebook groups that you can join. Someone there may have parts/pieces
