An authentic looking replica of the Russian GP-30 grenade launcher. It can be mounted underneath full size AK type airsoftguns, with mounting brackets, and is capable of holding and firing an airsoft grenade, which is a device that looks like a real world grenade, but uses a gas propellant to fire a variety of projectiles, like large amounts of 6 mm BB's. When inserted in a grenade launcher, and fired, it shoots all the BB's at once with a big blast, great for room clearing and suppressive fire. Grenades is loaded from the front, and a small latch holds the grenade in the tube, just like the real launcher. Some airsoft players have been known to modify their grenade launchers to hold a large battery pack, to preserve an authentic look in a compact airsoft rifle. And this launcher includes a special cap that hides the battery from sight and makes it look like a real grenade is loaded.
Mounting brackets included.
Rifling in barrel, authentic look.
Grenade retained in tube when loaded.
Safety lever in-front of trigger.
Length of tube is 115 mm.
All metal like the real thing.
Special adjustable sights on right side.
The GP-25 (Granatomyot Podstvolnyj = under-barrel grenade launcher) was developed between 1975 and 1978, based on the earlier experiments, conducted in USSR during late 1960s. GP-25 has been adopted by soviet army in 1978 for use with both 7.62mm AKM and 5.45mm AK-74 Kalashnikov assault rifles. In 1989 Russian army adopted the improved design, GP-30, which, while retaining the same combat effectiveness, is lighter,simpler and less expensive to make. On the GP-25, sights are mounted on the left side of the launcher, and had additional indirect fire-scale for firing at longer ranges (up to 400 meters); on the GP-30, the indirect fire capability has been discarded, and sights were moved to the right side of weapon, making the aiming more comfortable.
