Affordable Modular Grenade Launcher, WHAT??!!
February 16, 2012
The 40mm grenade launcher is a very unique and special tool in the world of airsoft. Airsofters can launch anything from bbs to a foam rocket. It is quite interesting to me that in airsoft, a grenade launcher acts as a giant shotgun, due to the fact that it launches tons of bbs out in a single shot. In outdoor settings, the grenade launcher can launch foam rockets, which have a 15ft kill radius for most airsoft fields.
The M203 has been a great tool and has served our military since the late 1960s. It is a perfect add-on for the M16/M4 service weapon whenever the military needs the additional fire power. However, with newer weapon systems entering the theatre of war, newer grenade launchers are needed to accommodate with the new weapon systems.
The E.G.L.M., Enhanced Grenade Launching Module was introduced in 2004 in addition to the FN SCAR family. The E.G.L.M. is a newer, better, and more modular grenade launcher, compared to the current issue M203 grenade launcher. However, there are not many affordable airsoft version of the E.G.L.M out in the market.
The Lancer Tactical Grenade Launcher is a great addition to the airsoft market. For airsofters that like an E.G.L.M style grenade launcher for their SCAR and cannot afford other manufacturers of it, the Lancer Tactical Grenade Launcher is their answer. Pricing starts at $90 USD, the Lancer Tactical Grenade Launcher really is more “bang” for less “buck”.
Unlike the E.G.L.M. from other manufacturers, the Lancer Tactical grenade launcher comes with 2 different magwell adaptors, one for the SCAR-L, and one for SCAR-H. So whether you have a SCAR-L and SCAR-H, the Lancer Tactical Grenade Launcher will meet your needs.
The Lancer Tactical Grenade Launcher is also available in the standalone configuration. The standalone chassis comes with the grenade launcher sights and the trigger module. However, Airsoft GI does not sell the chassis alone; it must be sold as a combo. The chassis combo is only about $80 more, which will definitely come in handy in the future.
The Lancer Tactical Grenade Launcher comes in 2 colors, black and tan. It can be fitted on an M4/AR15 style rifle as long as the rifle has a 7 inch RIS unit. Although it is not designed to be mounted on an AR15/M4 platform, it certainly gives the gun a badass look.
There you have it; the new Lancer Tactical Grenade Launcher is the perfect add-on if you are looking for a budget E.G.L.M. style grenade launcher for your SCAR-L or SCAR-H. Both colors are ready for pre-order. So what are you waiting for airsofters, go to www.airsoftgi.com to pre-order your very affordable E.G.L.M. style grenade launcher for your SCAR-L or SCAR-H today!
