    There were several variants with small differences in composition.........depending on the raw materials available to them.

Nitroglycerin was later partially replaced by dinitrodiethylene glycol, which increases the plasticity of the powder mass. The percentage of the individual components may vary depending on the desired properties of the final product.

    Thanks klarkon. Just to clarify, are Nipolit and Nipolite two different substances, or are these just two different descriptions of the same material with slight variations?

    Nipolit is like a plastic / resine ?

    The entire grenade is made from the explosive material, inside and out, there was nothing to remove.

    Thanks Jan. I am still waiting for mine to arrive, they are stuck in Germany due to Covid, but I wanted to know how to make them look as good as yours when they arrive. I appreciate the information.

    Nice originals, thanks for showing them. So they also made smooth-sided Eihandgranate Nipolit. Is the smooth one the 250 or 500gr?

    Thanks Jens. I knew the original Nipolit Eihandgranate had two sizes, I just forgot that the maker of these reproductions had made both sizes until I saw Jans pictures above.


    I told the maker that I have a couple friends in Germany who might be interested in a set of these, but he messaged me this morning that you have already been in contact with him. That's great!

    Nice. They are not fakes, they are "museum quality reproductions".

    Are the two Nipolit Eihandgranate the same size? I assume they are and that the camera angle is just making one look larger, plus he did not mention that he was making two sizes.

    Did you paint the yellow ones yourself, and did the originals come in both colors? What did you put over the paint to give them that "aged" look?

    Sorry for all the questions.
