Also... a new maker has been found in the battlefields of Poland: it looks like
opb44, until now all the Hebelzunders I have seen, tan or grey always were from the maker gzx44.

Exclamation Buck zunder added to the museum.

A.J. I think Bruno was joking about his fuze & mine. He knows its a Mega rare item to find.

Great pics for the Hebelzunders in the box. I would love to add that to my collection.

That a great find of the grey OPB44 marked Hebelzunder. Good catch if you got it.

About the new maker Hebelzunders, you can find them at ebay USA from time to time.

Such an awesome and rare piece Glen!

By the way, what is that silver thing you have the Buckzünder sitting in?

John,

It’s a fuse adapter that could be screwed into a large caliber shell so it could be set off using a standard push pull fuze.

I don’t know it’s proper technical name.

Ah, ok, now I get it. Very cool, and thanks for showing it with different fuze configurations, I like that. I have a very small adapter for use with 5cm mortar rounds, but have never seen a large adapter like that.

My Buckzünder is just laying on the shelf in my display case, so I am trying to figure out a better way to display it until I can find a pot mine.
