Stielhandgranate the M43 was the last version of "potato masher" to be introduced into service with the German armed forces, and is a simplification of M24 Stielhandgranate.
Remaining unchanged the explosive charge took the time to tear BZ39 (brennzunder 39) of the same so-called "egg shells", screwed directly into the warhead which made her even more immediate use.

Some technical data:
Total weight: 469 grams
weight caricaa of tnt: 165 grams
Total length: approximately 35 cm
maximum launch range: 25 meters

let's give it a closer look :

the grenade in full view.

disassembled into its parts: sleeve, explosive charge and detonator.

detail detonator BZ39 and its seat.

Image
the back of the explosive charge with the seat of the handle and the thread which was used to join neck and charged, the head of the grenade pierced here to neutralize it .

Image
detail of the brands of the explosive charge, was produced in 1944.

between model 24 grenade and 43 they were produced by the Germans over 75 million copies and copied them designed by the Japanese and Chinese with their grenade type 67

From what I understand these could be thrown farther than the Allies grenades due to the handle. However, the handle was cumbersome and took up much packing space and such...everything's a trade off...

Yes but there's no way to carry it (that I know of) without the stick.
