    Exclamation Looking for some help from the ACTIVE DUTY folks

    Looking for something from ACTIVE DUTY folks. I'm looking for the PULL RINGS from used hand grenades or smoke grenades. I'm looking for about FIVE of them with cotter pins still attached (maybe wrapped around the ring. They're kinda like "gifts" for my close kin. They make GREAT KEY RINGS and they have a sort of unique conversation quality all their own. Especially for the guys.

    I have heard a rumor these are now "controlled" items and so I wouldn't want anybody to break any rules...but in my day, you used to be able to look around on the ground of any training area and find THOUSANDS of 'em! Just a little metal ring with a cotter pin about the size of a Kennedy half dollar. Can anybody help me out? I'll send you postage.

    Sorry Ex but I'm pretty sure that they are controlled items, but if you want I will see if I can get you some Mk-82 arming loops. (Warning if this is a time rush thing- it might take a while.) And yeah, they sure do have a "unique conversation quality" to them.

    DANG IT! I KNEW IT. I was hoping somebody stumbing around in the hinterlands where infantry trains might find one on the ground....like I said they used to be just laying all over the place.

    What's this "arming loop?" Is that like the safety clip that keeps the spoon from flying off by accident?

    Hey, Ex. I know what you mean I was a training officer and we had 220 trainees throw grenades in each cycle. The pits had pull rings and spoons all over the place. I did not know that they were controlled now. If you can't find any this way there may be another way. I was at a gun show last Saturday and saw several tables that had the practice grenades that we used in FTXs. The ones with the cap in it that would go pop. Unless I am mistaken they had the inserts as well. After using these grenades we just unscrewed the old insert and screwed in another. This was the little explosive cap that went into the body, the trigger, and the spoon with the cotter pin through it. For all I know they may have had the pull rings by themselves. I had a WWII pineapple and a Viet Nam era version of the practice grenades for years. When we moved back to Alabama 10 years ago I got rid of a bunch of stuff and these were in the things that I got rid of.

    Dr CMG has a good idea there.

    The arming loops on a GP bomb connect the arming wire to the jet. If you want a better description I'll have to draw you a picture.

    Thank you for your service, especially in a combat zone.

    When I was a DAT -- we trained on the ORIGINAL M1 with the 105mm main gun. On those we discovered the ability to fiddle with the radios and pickup real FM music stations. Lots of fun waiting your turn on the livefire ranges! Just so long as you had one radio tuned to the range control "push." Is that still the case with the radios?
