German Hand & Rifle Grenades
Bulletin No. 59, March 7, 1944

Rifle Discharger Cup Type

The discharger is made of steel and consists of a rifled barrel which screws into a holder fitted with a clamp for attaching it to the rifle barrel. There are no gas ports, and varying ranges are obtained by altering the elevation of the rifle by the aid of the sighting attachment. With practice, however, the discharger can be used effectively without the sight.
