Unlike the M67 there is a wide variety of "Lemon" Grenades. The first grenade nicknamed "lemon" was the M26 adopted in the 1950s. Later US envolvement in the Vietnam war resulted in many improvements being made. The: M26A1, M26A2, M33, M56, and the M61, are all variations of the iconic Lemon grenade. There were also production variations that did not have seperate "M" designations.

The GM26A1-V is an exacting replica of the M26A1. It has the classic lemon shape, 9/16" threaded fuze hole, a M204A1 Fuze Head, with a curved spoon and the markings are from a 1965 production lot.

The quality you've come to expect from RMI reproductions can bee seen in these. The body is formed steel, NOT CAST IRON, exterior finish is an olive drab powder coat, and the markings are period correct. Fuze head is an actual M204 surplus fuze (those were hard to find!) that has been refurbished.

    M26 Lemon Grenade

    Posted by Jeffrey Bone on Nov 4th 2019

    This is the second reproduction hand grenade I have purchased from RMI , the first being a M67 (Iraq War era). I was not disappointed with either of these grenades. I have real, deactivated, ones in my collection, but needed something realistic, without being cost prohibitive, for my uniform displays. Bingo! These are perfect for that purpose. Not only do they feature actual batch numbers from that era, but the nomenclature is stencil rolled like the originals, not stencil spray painted. They feature real, refurbished M204 fuses, spoons and pins. If you want them to hang authentically from a uniform, add a little play sand to the bodies. Unbelievable! Will you be making them with M61 markings? If so, count me in!

    Excellent!

    This is a very detailed, excellently-made reproduction of the difficult to fine “lemon” grenade. It’s so much better than the typical cast-body ones found online and at your local Army/navy store. Fast shipping and very responsive folks at RMI too. Overall, in very happy, and you’ll be too.
