MUSUEM GRADE REPRODUCTION
This M1924, M24, or “Stielhandgranate 24” Stick Grenade or “Potato Masher” th is a fantstic reproduction. In WW2 the stick of the German M24 (Model 24) grenade provided a lever, significantly improving the throwing distance. The Model 24 could be thrown approximately 30 to 40 yards, whereas the British Mills bomb could only be thrown about 15 yards. The design also minimized the risk of the grenade rolling downhill back towards the thrower when used in hilly terrain or in urban areas. These grenades were extremely useful for clearing out entrenched infantry positions.
