"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.
"This little bad boy is perfect for when you need to clear a room with a lot of people. It comes in handy in a large number of situations.
"This thing is a sexy little beast. It's effectively a 40mm boot gun (if you have big boots.)
Not realistic by any means but fun. A real M79 cut down like this would shatter your wrist, if not more.
I think my only recommendation is to get a 40mm grenade cartridge with a higher BB capacity.
Having hand fired the cartridge (without the launcher) I'm not sure I'd recommend carrying reloads as they seem pretty sensitive to shock. Being a walking claymore while running squad tactics is bad.
My only real complaint is that the instructions assume you know how to load and prep the grenade cartridge. This being my first Airsoft "grenade" launcher, that would have been nice.
