Description A Russian MUV pull fuze used for booby-trap purposes. Typically, a trip-wire would be attached to the striker retaining pin. Once the safety pin is removed, pressure on the trip-wire pulls the retaining pin free, allowing the spring to push the striker into the percussion cap, activating the detonator.
