China Lake Airsoft Grenade Launcher by renegadecow China Lake Airsoft Grenade Launcher by renegadecow
The China Lake 40mm pump-action grenade launcher was originally made by NAWS in China Lake USA to serve the Navy SEALs during the Vietnam war. I've made this PVC plastic and wood replica to use 40mm airsoft gas grenades, firing non-lethal plastic bbs. In true fashion to the original, it holds 3 rounds in the tubular magazine and an extra 1 in the chamber. Because it is near impossible to get a real specimen to take measurements and copy schematics out of, I relied on scaled pictures and my own ingenuity to make it functional and externally accurate.

I am honestly shocked you made this. I was snooping through google images for my TF2 grenade launcher and I saw this in a rpf post.
After looking through I recognised it was you, but then also realised I had this in my favourites before I saw the rpf post.
And I thought, what the fuck? He made this functioning airsoft china lake? Jesus.

The weapon is super rare, like an Arisaka with the Emperor's seal. Why buy when you can build your own... :D

Do you mean the Imperial Ownership Seal (aka the chrysanthemum)? If so, those are somewhat uncommon, but not at all rare. I own one currently, and it is unremarkable.

I say this only to inform, not to assail your statement. It's a common misconception because so many were defaced.

You have no idea how happy I am right now. I'd seen this through my casual airsoft browsing a long time ago, and just today I checked out a link to your whistling Fluttershy automaton. When I saw that you're the same person, I was ecstatic. I've always admired your custom work, and the fact that you're a brony too makes you just about 2000% cooler!

Epic brohoof!

i used to play black ops and i watch alot on the military channel and it looks period correct

Accuracy depends on the shell used.

Holy god above!
You have done an amazing job on this master piece.
Did you craft the wooden stock by hand?

Thank you. The stock was cut out with a jigsaw and roughly shaped by a router before planing and sanding by hand.
