This "lemon" grenade, as it is normally called, has a body made of two sheet steel halves. Inside the grenade a fragmentation coil sits between the outer casing and the explosive charge. This coil is made of round wire and has serrations on the outside, against the casing wall (M26). Around the detonator tube a tetryl booster is encased in the main filling. The grenade can be fired from a rifle with the use of adapter M1A1 or M1A2. Grenades were individually packed in "container M289" and with 25 containers fitted in a wooden case.
