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:
- #100-027-797 M203 37mm Launcher. $1,599 retail
