This is a reenactment, field usable, replica of the wurfgranatpatrone 326 LP. The concept behind this innovative piece of ordnance was simple, turn a flare pistol into a grenade launcher. The 326 was the precursor to the Z-pistol system. The 326 round was developed in the late 30's and entered use around 1940-41 and was very popular with fallschirmjäger and were commonplace in armored vehicles as a sort of last ditch antipersonnel device. Our reproduction of the 326 LP is probably the least expensive thing you will ever fire out of your flare pistol since flares generally start at around $5 and easily run up to $25 or more each!
Our aluminum cartridges are reusable and easily reloaded with .22 power loads found at any hardware store; the 22's are commonly used to drive nails into concrete (they only cost roughly $0.06ea.!) That means the cartridges are a one- time expense and reloading is a simple and cheap process. These casings are also good for more than just the wooden rounds. With this casing, you can now be free to experiment with a variety of fun things for your Leuchtpistole. I have even made up a party streamer round from party poppers, not exactly authentic but great fun. Once fired, the .22 shell has to be removed by means of a metal rod from the inside. An appropriately sized Phillips head screwdriver works perfectly.
The new 3-piece 326 LP rounds are sold unpainted. They consist of: a cast resin tail, a cardboard tube middle, and a cast resin nose (the round is reusable, provided you can find the pieces) These come with no fins attached. The fin stem is present so you can devise your own system. cardboard, paper, or even a streamer works well. With yellow blanks, these rounds can easily reach 150 yards or more. The 3-piece, hollow design also allows you to develop your own filling; for example, a puff of smoke.
