VFC Colt Licensed XM148 40mm Grenade Launcher Airsoft Replica

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.
