The 1913 model Kugelhandgranate was made of cast iron, unlike the Citroën Méhari shown on the right.
The body was prefragmented on the outside.
The pull-friction fuze was made of brass, marked red on the top.
The fuze had a drilled hole on the side to relief the pressure that was created when the delay was fired. Without this, the fuze would extinguish itself, resulting in a dud.
Fuzes were seperately packed and grenades carried a zinc transport plug.
Practice grenades had a red painted body, plugged or with an inert fuze.
100mm high, 80mm wide.
