What is the correct name for a grenade launcher?
WWII & Korea had "Rifle Grenades" launched from the muzzle of their M1 Garand rifles. Vietnam was the first war in which specially designed "grenade launchers" were issued to the men. The M-79 Grenade Launcher was nicknamed the "Thumper" or the "Blooper" because that's the sound it made when fired. It was a break open (like a shotgun) single barrel, single shot 40mm grenade launcher (and not as effective as some historians seem to believe). In 1970 in Vietnam, the M-203 over and under grenade launcher was fielded. That was just as bad as the thumper, only worse: it was heavier because now the M16 rifle was attached to it and when you slid the front portion of the 40mm grenade barrel forward to load it, you had to keep the muzzle downward or else the whole round fell out of the weapon.
he means muzzle upward
Yes, You will need to buy a barrel with a barrel shroud with under rails first. Then you must purchase a grenade launcher from metadyne, Rap4, or another place that sells them. Then you must buy the correct caliber grenades, fill station and paint. Then you will have a working under-mount grenade launcher.
Well this is an Opinion question so I think that is if you got one of the G&P's long version grenade launcher than you would be in hevan. But that is what I think but if you are going for an other type of grenade launcher get the long version so you can fire the Madbull XM204 super shower round.- Loads of fun !!!!
An M16A1 Assault rifle with underslung 39mm Smoothbore grenade launcher, with a quadrant rear sight and flip up ladder front sight for the launcher. A special custom made 39mm Launcher was made so that it would not fall under the same federal restrictions as a rifled 40mm grenade launcher would have. The Custom launcher was an early Hollywood copy of the famous M203 40mm Grenade launcher, used by the American military since the 1970s.
Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I'm sure that the underslung always comes with what ever weapon has one. As for the grenade launcher you simply must rank up your assault class to unlock it, then replace your medic bad with it. Then to have it equipt directly to the assault rile you also must have to underslung rail equipped to the gun. Hope that helps
In Terminator 2: Judgment Day, the T800 Terminator fired a 40x46mm grenade into the T2000 Terminator with an M79 grenade launcher. This didn't actually destroy the T2000 - falling into the molten steel after the damage sustained from the 40mm grenade is what destroyed the T2000 (then the T800 went into the molten steel voluntarily in order to be terminated).
Hawk MM1 seen in Dogs of War 12 shot 40 mm There are the Automatic Grenade Launcher, such as the Mk. 19, GMG, AGS-17, and others. As far as man portable grenade launchers go, there is the South African Milkor MGL, which is a six shot rotary grenade launcher, which is probably most infamous in American cinema for its appearance in Terminator 2: Judgement Day as a tear gas canister delivery system.
Since there is no one grenade laucher, there is no one cost. Rifle grenade launchers used in WW II were only a few dollars. Current launchers such as the M79 and M203 would be $250 to $950 USD. However, to be owned by a civilian, they must be registered with the Federal govt, and a $200 tax paid on each one- and on each grenade. There is also an airsoft grenade launcher and they are…
