Echo 1 M203 Socom RIS Mount Airsoft Grenade Launcher - Short Type. ( OD )History
The M203 was the only part of the army's flechette rifle project to go into production. The M203 has been in service since 1969  and was introduced to U.S. military forces during the early 1970s; replacing the older M79 grenade launcher and conceptually similar Colt XM148 design. However, while the M79 was a separate weapon entirely, the M203 was designed as a rifle attachment in order to increase the efficiency at which a soldier could alternate between bullet fire and HE (High Explosive) grenade fire. Echo1 M203:
The Echo1 M203 is compatible with the M4, M16A1 M16A2, M16 Vietnam and other Automatic Electric Guns (AEGs) The Echo1 designed the M203 launcher with metal parts such as, the barrel, trigger guard, Barrel Latch. The Echo1 M203 requires a 40mm grenade shell. The Shell capacity can vary from 18 to 204 rounds per shot. Echo1 M203 Rail Mounted VariantThe R.I.S.

"yes it will fit a M4 and a G36 and yes it is worth the money cuase i put one on my UGT sniper next to the bipod and it is amazing cuase it is short and it is light and camoed same as my gun and ghillie suit and it kicks ass if you have been spotted
In my honest opinion I would say that it is worth the money. The barrel is metal but the handgaurd is plastic. So if you only want full metal then you should find something else. Also some of these have been known to wobble a little bit. My say is yes, they are worth it. E1 is usually a reliable company.
"yes it will fit a g36c if you have a metric allen wrench set. you can take off the sling mount and put the screw back in the rail. now, i am seriously considering an m203. i like this one because it is od, is short and fairly cheap. i would like to know if it is worth the money.
