Description

Offered for sale here is an unfired Number 254 Point Detonating/Direct Action fuze for the 20mm Hispano and Oerlikon cannons. All parts made of brass - consisting of the main fuze body, the short screw-in booster assembly and perforated front plate.

This is a very simple design of fuze that was used in British 20mm Hispano and Oerlikon HE projectiles which functioned simply by directing a jet of air, created when the end cap was compressed on hitting the target, onto the detonator held in the brass booster assembly attached directly below causing the projectile to explode. No moving parts involved, simple to make and effective in operation.

Totally disassembles and all threads good. Could easily be used to complete a projectile in your collection or it could 'stand alone' as an example of this fuze type. Partially cleaned with remains of original red luting in threads.

Condition as per images above. Second class postage to a mainland UK postcode will be £1.60 for either one or both fuzes.
