Original item, very few available, these are genuine BZ24, ( Brennzunder 24 ( B.Z.24 ), friction igniter, pull type designed for use in the German WW2 model 24 stick grenade

These are perfect for replacing or upgrading any original WW2 German stick grenades

Brennzunder 24 can be loosely translated as "Burning Fuse, model 1924", it is a waterproof metal detonator with a fixed burning time of 4.5 seconds

The igniter consists of a lead tube connected to a threaded alloy metal fitting by a steel tube, the steel tube is threaded on both ends and contains the powder delay pellet

The lead sheath contains a copper capsule which holds the friction composition

A friction wire is coiled to provide resistance to pulling and is joined to the pull loop, the pull loop extends through the lead tube, which is flattened or pressed together at the upper end, thus preventing the loop friction wire from being freely and inadvertently withdrawn

When the loop is pulled, it frees itself from the soft lead tube, drawing the friction wire through the friction composition contained in the capsule

The resulting flame ignites the delay pellet, when the delay burns through, it ignites a fuse or a detonator attached to the fitting

The pellet used with the stick grenade had a delay of 4.5 seconds

A very good WW2 German M24 stick grenade fuse, pull string has been added and is the wrong type but a excellent rare fuse for any collector who wants there WW2 stick grenade to be complete
