Dummy Lemon Grenade
The M26, also known as the lemon grenade, is a fragmentation grenade that was developed by the United States Military in the early 1950s as a replacement for the Mk II fragmentation grenade, commonly referred to as the "pineapple" grenade. Primarily finding use during the Vietnam War, the M26 was an improvement over the Mk II in that its fragmentation pattern was highly predictable due to the use of a pre-notched fragmentation coil contained within the dual-layer outer shell that was characteristic of the grenade. It was also known to utilize a fuze that would not emit smoke or sparks. The grenade used Composition B explosive filling and was eventually replaced by the M67 fragmentation grenade just after the Vietnam War.

I keep one of these lemon grenades on my desk at work. You wouldn't the amount of conversations it strikes up with customers. Everyone wants to touch it and ask if it is real. Lol. Keep Shooting has the best price and shipping though.
