This launcher is owned by Gilles, who wants to find more out about it.
Does anyone have any documentation on this grenade launcher,
Info on the grenade itself is also very welcome.

Are there more of this one in this condition around ?
It would be nice to examine the differences in welding and mechanism.

Height : 218mm , Diameter : 60mm
Propellant cartridge: 24caliber, pin-fire percussion (2x)

Best reference so far is Paul Spence's site : http://www.paul-spence1964.com/ITALIANEXCELSIORTIPOA.html
Paul's page shows the grenade as well.


Shown below and right is another complete launcher in great condition.
