"I had been after one of these for years. When KA announced that they were re-releasing a run I pre-ordered here on Evike. It is extremely impressive in person. I also ordered a 6 pack of the matrix shells, and only 3 of them worked, still waiting on my RMA after two weeks. With a decent brand shell though, this M79 is reliable and fires foam training golf balls the best. Amazon has them cheap, and in several bright colors.
The launcher itself is identical to the real one I got to handle in the service except for the weight. This being aluminum rather than steel it is much lighter. It's solidly built but be careful with it and treat it with love, if you drop it on pavement I'd say it would break.
I only fire solid projectiles with it. The nerf ball is terrible with this run of the M79, don't bother with it. Stick to eballs and foam golf balls. Might want to shell out the money on the madbull paintball shell or the S Thunder if you plan on using this regularly. The matrix shells are unreliable at best.
Overall very happy with the M79 especially at the discounted rate here on Evike. Get yourself a cotton green sling off Amazon or a nylon one of Ebay to complete the look.
"I am not into airsoft, but wanted this for a film prop. I have to say its absolutely beautiful! Very accurate to the real thing. I would highly recommend it, at least for a wall hanger or prop from my perspective. Get it while it's hot!
"I run a team sponsored out of Southeast Texas, and we have a couple floating around on our team. They're very cool little launchers. In one of the previous reviews, a reviewer stated that the launcher was not realistic, and that a real launcher like this would shatter ones wrist - well, that's very untrue. This launcher is actually issue correct to NSW/NSWDG kits.
This launcher is also shockingly practical for airsoft, whether you use shower-type or explosive projectile type grenades. We find it very useful in that we can have a fully effective grenade launcher (while staying "kosher," or realistic) without having to sacrifice the ergonomics of our assault weapons. I feel that a lot of people overlook this weapon because they immediately consider it to be silly, whilst in actuality it's a perfect piece of kit for a SEAL or DEVGRU inspired gear kit.
In terms of effectiveness, it's like any other grenade launcher. It's compact, it's simple (less to break at long events), it's full metal and wood (and therefore authentic-ish), and not cumbersome to carry. The barrel length is long enough to be adequate without being TOO short, but not so long as to hinder mobility - hence it's popularity amongst the SOF community. It's effectiveness, authenticity, and overall cool-factor can be improved upon by adding a micro/docter red dot custom-mounted near the rear sight.
Overall, this thing is a very, very cool little GL.
