The XM148 was an experimental 40mm grenade launcher designed and produced by the Colt during the Vietnam War. It has been tested in combat and mainly launches a 40—46mm caliber grenade. The grenade launcher is an external grenade launcher designed to be mounted on the M16 rifle, and its purpose was to replace the M79.

The XM148 was originally used on M16 series rifles and was later used by the US Navy's SEALs (under the XM177E2). It has a quadrant sight, but it is so delicate that it requires proper maintenance or it can be easily damaged. It uses an externally designed trigger and trigger handle, with the exposed trigger handle on the right side, allowing the shooter to directly pull the trigger with the right index finger.

At the same time this design also had the problem that it was easy to pull and shoot by mistake, and the trigger is also easy to be pulled off. In addition, the long trigger stroke makes it not suitable for use in the jungle of Vietnam. This design is too complicated to be easily used in the wild. The shortcomings of maintenance eventually caused it to be replaced by the M203, with a similar conceptual design.

Even with these many problems, the innovative under-hanging design, the short test time, and the production quantity being very scarce; XM148 became a dreamy product in the hearts of Vietnam War aficionados in later generations and made it one of the indelible icons of the Vietnam War.

The World First XM148 Airsoft Grenade Launcher
The details have been faithfully taken directly from the Colt XM148 in the Vietnam War. It includes a full CNC aluminum alloy barrel, XM148 and Colt markings, US DOD Stamp, simulated trigger & trigger handle and XM148 dedicated fully functional quadrant sight with period-correct handguard for M16 rifles; all the details of the Colt XM148 are integrated in one place, making it destined to be an irreplaceable product in the Airsoft world.

Cybergun Full License Authorized Production
VFC Colt XM148 is built under license by Cybergun, with fully authorized markings. Reproducing the XM148 from the Vietnam War down to every last critical detail.

Reproducing the Complete Operation of XM148
In addition to the external appearance, the VFC Colt XM148 this time also replicates the operation method of the real launcher to a great extent. This includes the operation of the quadrant sight and the use of the trigger and trigger handle: both identical to the real version. It also restores the operation without using the trigger, and all of these details are faithfully restored on the VFC Colt XM148!

Compatible with XM177E2 & M16A1 Series Rifles
The XM148 was originally designed for the M16 series rifles. To stay true to history, VFC added a period correct handguard for the M16 with the XM148. Until now, no one has released this type of handguard in an airsoft version before. In addition to matching the M16 series rifles, it can also work with the XM177E2 by VFC, so that everyone can gradually complete their Vietnam War collection.

The World First XM148 Airsoft Grenade Launcher
As the world's first XM148 Airsoft grenade launcher, VFC relies on its understanding of history and meticulous research to restore this dream-worthy product in the hearts of Vietnam War fans.
