RG-14 Russian hand grenade (Model 1914 grenade)
RG-14/30 Soviet hand grenade (Model 1914/30 grenade)

The RG-14 (Russian: РГ-14, Ручная граната Рдултовского образца 1914 года, Ruchnaja granata Rdultovskogo obrazca 1914 goda, "Hand Grenade Pattern of year 1914"), known in English sources as Model 1914 grenade, is a Russian hand grenade developed by Capt. Vladimir Iosifovich Rdultovsky, based his previous RG-12 hand grenade. It was the main hand grenade of the Russian Imperial Army during the Great War, and of the Red Army during the Russian Civil war.

In 1925, the decision was made to create a new stick hand grenade. The first trials of what later became RGD-33 were unsuccessful, and modified RG-14s were adopted as a stopgap weapon. The modified version, designated RG-14/33, had increased capacity and reliability. It was filled with TNT instead of Picric Acid and to improve its kill radius, a fragmentation sleeve could be fitted (the sleeve was optional, placed on the grenade only when needed during combat). Otherwise, the RG-14/30 is exactly the same as the base model. The RG-14/33 was produced in 1930-1934 and then replaced in production by the RGD-33, but large stores of these grenades, both newly produced and converted from original RG-14s, allowed its usage in the Red Army until mid-1943.

Captured RG-14/30 grenades was used by Finland as m14-30 and Germany as Handgranate 336(r).

Note: as both versions externally look the same, there isn't a guaranteed way to distinguish them from each other. In most cases, screen grenades are RG-14/30s.
