50mm RGS-50M Riot Grenade

This grenade fits the Russia RGS-50M Riot control launcher.
The case says GS-50PM which is a training grenade.
An internet photo showed the green projectile as a long-range tear-gas.
What is the correct type and is the case mis-matched to this projectile?
What is written on the green body in Russian?

GS-50M (ГС-50М) - tear-gas - green grenade with green top in green case
GS-50PM (ГС-50ПМ) - practice - green grenade with white top in orange case

I thank you both for the information and great ID colour chart. Ron.

Another riot grenade I will add to this thread to keep them together.

This is the red case GSZ-50 Flash Bang. 6 slits with a plastic liner.
Is something missing from the projectile as it is too loose in the case when fully seated.
Maybe an adaptor is missing from the threaded section?
It is 49mm at the head but only 46mm at the slots and 42mm level with the case mouth.

Also I ask about the long primer. Does it use a pistol case or 5.45 rifle case in the primer?
Marking is 7 98 which I think is Vympel factory.

Thank you for this information.
From your colour chart the adaptor seems red and goes to the metal top covering the slits.
Does anyone have a projectile I could see to copy an adaptor in plastic.
Should I make one level with the case mouth just to seat the projectile properly?


Do you have markings (ink stamp serial number) on the top grenade?

Maybe a photo?

I have the CBETO and long 8 letter print but only a black mark on the top of the red cap that may or may not have been numbers. I could take a photo in the morning if you need one of the 8 letters.
My projectile all unscrews too so thanks for the photo.
