In the United States released a "civilian" version of the grenade launcher M203

In the US, created a "civilian" modification of the rocket launcher M203. According to the portal thefirearmblog.com, Colt began selling the legendary "grenade launcher" in the civilian version.


The M203 grenade launcher was developed by AAI in 1967 and was mass-produced by many companies, including Colt. In 1969, M203 was adopted by the American army. The “grenade launcher” is mounted on M16 rifles (M4) and is capable of firing 40-mm grenades at a distance of 400 m. To date, more than 250 000 M203 grenade launchers, which are in service with forty armies of the world, have been launched.

In the United States released a "civilian" version of the grenade launcher M203

Grenade launcher Colt M203 40mm.


Considering that the original M203 is a military development and cannot be sold freely in the civilian market, Colt has somewhat “adapted” it. So, the version of the grenade launcher, which anyone in the US can buy, was called the Colt M203 37mm and was made in the caliber 37 mm. The shooter can use it with any non-lethal 37-mm grenade, which does not violate applicable law.

The Colt M203 37mm is not the only grenade launcher released for the US civilian market, but it is the first M203 “clone” released by the original “grenade launcher” manufacturer for the M16 / M4 rifles. In the US, the M203 37mm rocket launcher is sold at Arms Unlimited stores (a subsidiary of Colt) in two versions - with 9- and 12-inch trunks. The retail value of both versions is declared at $ 3500, while the grenade launchers were originally sold at a discount of $ 1500, reports "Warspot"

        You can’t shove a military grenade into it. Although it is possible to quickly turn non-combat into combat. I think the losses on their civilian fronts will increase dramatically.

          Do not stop them from self-cutting. What else would advise the American defense industry to “protect”? I propose to make a light version of the jet flamethrower M202 "Flash". It seems that it should be in demand, especially if you put it on sale under the advertising slogan "Light a boring party!" bully

            Do not interfere with self-cutting

            I don’t understand. It seems that in many US states the sale of weapons to civilians is allowed.
            But why then, as the next maniac shoots the crowd, this whole crowd is unarmed? I’d try to shoot such a one in Chechnya, I’d immediately shoot.
            So many people fooled in the USA that some maniacs and bandits carry weapons?
            But they try to fool us, too, "well, why do you need a gun, leave your protection to professionals." And clever people block all attempts to sell weapons freely.
            "Samovypil" - he is not in the free sale of weapons. He is in the minds of raising children. Will there be free sale, or not - if the nation feeds the bandits, it is doomed to become a herd. But for the formation of the Personality, and so that there are more of these Personalities - the right to bear arms helps a lot (but without a state program for raising children it is powerless)

            In principle, in the states, you can buy anything, "civic". But the grenade launcher, for $ 3500, is like that ... What is there in it for such a price? Maybe he is gilded? Or show off more than money.

          The grenade can be reassigned with something killer. In the United States, there are enough enthusiasts who equip the cartridges themselves (Equipment is on sale). Special films are also shot about this video.

        Well, actually, the original 40 mm version had a lot of "non-lethal" ammunition:
        - 3 shots with smoke grenades (with different colors of smoke)
        - 3 shots with flares
        - shot with a lighting rocket (with a parachute, burning time - 40 sec)
        - a shot with tear gas

        Perhaps for civilians they will also make shots with rubber buckshot and with a "large rubber bullet" - for example, to drive away a bear. Because there are places in the USA where there are more bears than policemen ...
        For the same purpose, a shot with a stun grenade is suitable ...

    Non-lethal grenades for civilian grenade launcher request
    What else will come up? It seems that in this wilderness, the arms business does not give a damn about the life and health of the country's citizens. Has a mass shooting of people been carried out for a long time with the help of a universal butt allowing firing bursts of civilian weapons? But they have already forgotten, well, or they have forgotten - it’s already someone like ...

    That's cool! The roof has moved down, has shied about everything that moves, while they will fill up, 20 grenades can be flipped easily! Faithful path go idiots! And a chain of loafers was stretched, because now the laws must be corrected - how many years should be given for the murder, or even mass, but in aggregate, from the underbarrel? 798 or 1450? And all at work! Lawmakers create, lawyers scratch turnips, and mattresses in foil caps sit, waiting for the reptilian invasion!

      In Chechnya, they put things in order with all types of weapons, even the Navy! But in fact it’s for BB. Now in Dagestan and the same Chechnya, the Russian Guard is using a wide range of weapons. The internal enemy is also armed is not sickly. In our area, for example, they have only a light infantry, everything has its place.
