M320 Grenade Launcher

Here’s a shot of the new M320 grenade launcher in standalone configuration:

A paratrooper with 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, fires a training round from the new M-320 grenade launcher while learning to use the weapon on a Fort Bragg, N.C., range July 1. The brigade was the first unit in the Army to receive the advanced grenade launcher that will replace the Vietnam-era M-203.

    For a split second I read “standalone configuration” as “Stallone configuration” – realized my mistake before I could dwell on how cool that would have been.

    I didn’t realize 203s were fielded in Vietnam. I googled to find out when they were first introduced, and came across this important safety tip in the wiki:

    “The 40 mm grenades used in the M203 (40 x 46 mm) are not the same as in the Mk 19 grenade launcher (40 x 53 mm), which are fired at a higher velocity. While the M203 can fire the Mk 19 grenades, the increased pressure is likely to blow the barrel off the M203, and is highly discouraged.”

    it’s “likely to blow the barrel off the M203″ – it’s certain to break the hell out of your shoulder.

    It’s useless..

    There’s NO Bayonet lug on it

    @Toejam:

    I’m sure HK can rig something up. XD

    Note to Self: This is merely extra motivation to stop being a lazy ass and actually make standards before you graduate. Lookit the fun toys you can play with! :P

    Is that a range/angle of fire finder?

  • The Medic says:

    That is a range finder, instead of dialing in the angle, you dial in the range and it adjusts to the proper angle for you. it also uses a laser sighting system…

  • The Medic says:

    regarding the “No Bayonet Lug” comment… a bayonet lug would be useless in the standalone configuration anyway. This system is designed to mount to the M-16A2 or the M-4 just like the M203, not just as a standalone weapons system.

    Hi, i used to be a grunt in the USMC, i hope the 320 comes with iron sites too, the 203 had a range finder as you describe come out in 2007 that i played around with for a bit and it was garbage. it worked, but not nearly as well as iron sites used by an experienced shooter.

    I would however hope for the army infantry to use range finders bc they can never seem to have the basic training to shoot any weapon system correctly.

    I am a former SEAL and Vietnam Vet. I used the XM148, M203 and the M79. Never used the M320. Of all the grenade launchers the M79 seems to be the most soldier, sailor and Marine proof. It might be a bit heavy but like any “shotgun” you can saw it off.
