Hey folks -
I thought I'd add a few links to show others what reproduction HARDENS fire grenades look like. These are on eBay, so they won't be pictured for long. This is the same seller and are represented correctly as repros. The links show different colors of these nice repros.

Hey W -
After my post in Scams, I'd be afraid to contact any sellers to ask where he's getting these.[:D][:D][:D][:D][:D]

The red neck label may be a clue or start.

I've seen these offered in the past with the rack or carrier that holds three. Maybe the three colors offered here seperately.

I don't own any real ones or know them well enough to compare, but other than the lack of a sheared or rough lip treatment, these seem like a good deal and are beautiful as well. The embossment must be different than the real ones though.

I had a correspondence with the guy who had these made. He sent to Mexico to have the bottles blown, and the China to have the racks made. It was a limited run and no more will ever be made, so they're probably going to be collectible. These are identifiable from the originals by having an R on the base, for "repro."
