Threaded l ength: 0. 375 inch.
Number of threads: 5 RH.
CONSTRUCTION :
The f uze body is al uminum
and houses asteel
primer pocket and abrass re-
tainingspring
. Withinthef uzethere is a
striker
Secured to a
cup- shaped movabl e pl unger in the
head and astriker guide
tube which l eads to a
primer in the base.
The tube is attached to the
primer pocket and
is separated f romthe striker
pl unger
by acreep spring.
The f uze is kept in
the unarmed position
by nine steel bal l s l ocated
between
the striker
pl unger and the primer
pocket.
These bal l s are
arranged around acen-
tral set- back
sl eeve which is hel d in position
by
aset- back
spring. The set- back sl eeve
has a
f l ange f ormed
around the rear endto
engage with
the tongues
of the retaining spring ( f itted
in the
primer pocket)
when the f uze
is
armed.
ACTION: Upon
discharge, the set- back sl eeve
is driven down
compressing
the set- back spring
andengaging the
tongues of the retaining
spring.
This creates acl earance
in thestriker
pl unger into
which the nine
steel bal l s are
f orced byacreep
action during
f l ight. In this position, the f uze is
armedwith
onl ythe creepspring preventing con-
tact . of the striker
with the primer. There
is a
brass
cl osingdisk over
theheadof thef uzewhich
prevents
air pressure
f romf unctioning the f uze
in f l ight
. Upon
impact or graze, thecreepspring
is
overcome and the
striker pierces the primer .
REMARKS: Accordingto
aGerman f iring tabl e,
the
f uze can be made
more sensitive in order
to
f unction in mud
or snow,
by
removing the brass
cl osing
disk.
Another f uze which
can be used

DESCRIPTION
:
This f uze consists of an al u-
minum
body
containing
af l oating striker. f l oating
detonator
carrier, and an inertia weight . The
striker and detonator
carrier are separated
by
a
l ight spring. The
striker extends through the
f orward endof the
f uze body, and in the unarmed
position,
both striker
and detonator carrier are
hel d in pl ace by
apair of centrif ugal detents. A
shipping
saf ety pin passes through the f uze
body,
striker, and
aprotective cap. ( See f ig. 592. )
OPERATION
:
The
saf ety pin is withdrawn and
protective
capremovedbef ore f iring.
As the
pro-
j ectil el eaves
thel auncher, centrif ugal
f orce
causes
the detests to
move outwnrd. f reeing the striker
and the detonator
carrier . Upon impact
the
striker
is f orcedaf t,
andthedetonat or carrier
