    My cousin I haven't seen in a long time gave this to me today. He said it was military but I can't find one like this.
    It's heavy and has what looks like levers to set it or something, could my cousin be wrong about this ?

      Handle with care!

      It's a bomblet from a cluster bomb. A larger shell explodes in the air and scatters these smaller bombs over a large area. Pretty nasty as the ones that don't explode lay scattered around for people to find and get killed by, sometimes years later.

      This one looks like it's painted blue, which may indicate an inert practice or training version. However, unless you know for sure it's inert, it's a damn dangerous thing to have around.

      Vietnam era BLU-26/B cluster bomb

      The blue color indicates the fact that it is not a live munition.

      This item was used for training safely with these pieces and is painted "inert dummy round blue" 54mm in diameter, 2 1/8 inches. This inert bomblet was 1 of 1800 that was contained in the 2000 pound CBU-75 Sadeye cluster bomb.

      battlegear, very cool Thank You. I was wondering what to do with it, still sitting in back yard.

      Thanks

      it makes an interesting paperweight or conversation piece for your desk or on the bookshelf.

      Man, and his penchant to destroy all that he has not bred. Ugh.

      Billy, you should change the title from "LIVE Grenade" to "INERT" so people will know it's a trainer / dummy rd
