Brownells Launches Exclusive LMT M203 37mm Launcher

GRINNELL, Iowa-( Brownells adds some real pop to an already-explosive lineup, making its exclusive Lewis Machine & Tool M203 37mm Launchers available for sale.

Unveiled during the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in early May in Dallas, Texas, the Brownells M203 37mm Launchers are close copies of M203 40mm Grenade Launchers first issued to the U.S. military in 1969, and currently in military use worldwide.

Manufactured by Lewis Machine & Tool, the M203 37mm launchers attach to standard Government rifle and carbine length barrels on AR-15 style rifles, sold separately, with .625″ front diameter and a GI-compatible barrel nut, including various models of Brownells Retro Rifles chambered in 5.56.

“Lewis Machine & Tool has been a longtime supplier of the 40mm M203 Grenade Launcher to the US Military, and now Brownells is proud to partner with LMT to offer a 37mm M203 Flare Launcher to the firearms enthusiast, collector and reenactor,” said Brownells Director of Product Management Paul Levy. “Neither a destructive device or controlled FFL item, owning an authentic M203 has never been more straightforward and accessible.”

Because of their smaller, smooth bores, and inability to accept 40mm projectiles, the 37mm launchers do not require an FFL for purchase, nor any special registration to own.

Fireworks, flares, smoke rounds, “bird bombs” and other 37mm launcher ammo is widely available from several sources.

In addition to the launchers themselves, Brownells also offers accessories and the required mounting kits for the 37mm M203 Launchers:

    1. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. I know, I know, all you don’t need to bother to chastise me as being anti-2A. I’m going to get one so I can shoot a flare down my hallway before engaging a bad guy with a Shockwave. Probably burn the house down but who cares as long as I’m exercising my right to own and use a set of tits on my favorite bull.

      1. @Joe, As long as you are content to decide what you, for your ownself, need. I will be content to decide for me, myself, what I need.

      2. Why shouldn’t one? It’s a very expensive flare gun, basically. What’s there to complain about? Other than the price, of course. I’d like to have one to put on my A2 because it’s what we had ‘back in the day.’ But not for $1958 plus tax!

    2. These launchers, manufactured by various manufacturers have been on the market for YEARS… Question, why is this one more expensive that the gun it is mounted to, why is it 4x the price of the others ? Is it the manufacturers greed OR the distributor markup ???? There is NOTHING to it ! These are a $200.00 to $300.00 piece with an 8x markup the others are in the $300.00 to $400.00 range (Spikes, Tac D). You could buy $ from Spikes for the price of the Brownells unit. Use COMMON SENSE people, if you pay this price, they win. it’s like sports…. The whining, WAY OVERPAID “children” paying the game want AND GET millions ! And YOU pay for it when you go to the games. STOP THE MADNESS !!!!!!
      I really like Brownells, and do order from them, but there is NO REASON for the WAY over priced gouging ! You can buy a complete M79 launcher (military REPLICA) for $995.00
      A pile of modern day manufactured parts assembled that in reality cost a total of probably $125.00 (less due to quantity ordered) shouldn’t run you $1.599.00…. 1/4 of this or less is more like it.

      1. Your M79 replica is, I believe, 40mm. Start putting ANY parts on it that make it functional and you’ve just run afoul of ATF, if that matters to you. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong on the 40mm part.

    3. Man, oh man! Is this going to have the busybody, anti gunners howling in misguided rage! What the dummies don’t realize is, this technology has been around and legal for many years.
