Reproduction M24 stick grenade rack?

Postby Panzerbusche on 20 May 2012 21:10

I just got a hold of an original german M24 stick grenade transportation box and does not have it`s internal rack for the grenades. I did a search and it seems like the original ones are quite pricey, but I also found this incredible reproduction rack. Does anyone know if these has been made in quantities?

Does anyone know if the germans ever used wood "racks" in these metal cases? I have seen all wood boxes with all wood interior but did they use wood in the metal cases too?

Thanks for any info!

Hello..
Only metal rack in the steel boxes were used, and as you know ther are expensive for nice original ones :(
as for the reproduction racks i have some here, they are identicle to a genuine rack and it takes a very experience collector to
tell them apart. I would sell one or 2 or maybe a nice original M24 rack if you were interested ?
In the meantime these are a few items from my collection.

Hi Pete.. the racks are £150 each,,, they are near imposibble to tell apart from the genuine item,, i have mint genuine ones here and was breath taken when these arrived , theyr'e perfect for displaying a collection of M24'z.. i have used my good racks and snapped clips and really regretted usung them as they are near mint and at over 400€ a time not cheap,,, so i keep these in their cases for display only and empty,, only use the rero ones for display with the Hgr;s in them,, the top picc is an early photo of some of my grenz,, they are all on repro racks,,, I will be letting a few of my my M24 hgr's go soon, so if any interest pleaase pm me..

Hey Jeeeensy I know this post is about 4 months old, but do you still have any of the racks for sale or trade? I've been looking for one and found your post about a repro one. I usually don't like repro stuff but these do look really close to the original.

Hello Jeeeensy,
My name is Cody Kupfer. I just recently got out of the U.S. Marine Corps and I live in Utah. I am currently making a WW2 movie for the Sundance Film Festival, that is held in Park City, Utah every year. I do not have a lot of money but I am still looking for props for the low budget film we are making. I am really interested in some M24 metal grenade boxes and racks. If there is any information that you could provide me with to locate some for sale that would be wonderful. call or email me.
