NOW IN STOCK
The Mk 2 defensive hand grenade is a fragmentation hand grenade used by the U.S. armed forces during World War II and in later conflicts including the Vietnam War. The Mk II was standardized in 1920 replacing the Mk I of 1917. The Mk 2 was commonly known as a "pineapple" grenade, because of its shape and structure. Grooves were cast into the cast iron shell, which was believed at the time to aid in fragmentation and had the side benefit of aiding in gripping the grenade this provision gave it the appearance of a pineapple fruit. This weapon can be famously seen in movies such as Saving Private Ryan, True Lies, Uncommon Valor and countless others.
