Rocket Propelled Grenade PG-9 (Inert) SPG-9 Kopye 73mm Recoilless Gun Round These are Brand New units from the Cold War era, imported directly from Eastern Europe. Untouched in over twenty years, these inert disarmed units are inteded for training or collectors are pristine in every way possible. They have not been used and the original markings are still in great condition. Each unit stands 34.5" tall and weighs 8.9 lbs. The projectile is launched from the SPG-9 by a small charge, which gives it an initial velocity of between 250 and 400 metres per second. The launch charge also imparts spin to the projectile by a series of offset holes. Once the projectile has travelled approximately 20 meters from the launcher a rocket motor in its base ignites. For the PG-9 projectile, this takes it to a velocity of 700 metres per second before the motor burns out. This item is a curio and relic that has been rendered permanently inert with the ingestion of non-removable inert epoxy filler. It contains no harmful parts or substances and can not be modified to be any sort of harmful device. It is sold for historical preservation and study purposes only.
