I run in some amerikan WW. 1 manuals and so I have some questions.
Anybody has some more informations about US WW. 1 propelling cartridges
for the rod type BABBITT rifle grenade ?
The french Viven Bessier rifle grenade was used by US troops, too. There are dischargers for the M 1903 nad M 1917 rifles. I wonder if there is a special US grenade used with these dischargers. Normal ball ammo was used and shot through the grenade. Possible because of a central tube.
A small striker ignite a powder train of 8 seconds.
The french used 8mm caliber and the US 7,62. Because of the powerful US cartridge two holes where drilled into the dischargers as gas ports. The question is - is there a US VB grenade ???
