Anyone know how to put a grenade launcher on M16 A1 VN?
« on: October 25, 2015, 10:32:13 PM »
My son has a Vietnam style M16 and wants to add a grenade launcher but keep the teardrop front cover. The bottom of it has holes bit they are large for a rail lit. Any ideas?

i personally think it would look funny to put a grenade launcher on the bottom of the regular m16 grip. If your not concerned about that though, would this fit? http://www.evike.com/products/28471/                or i guess you could use superglue or screw it into the grip. i would personally just buy the 'scarface' grip with the built in launcher                scarface launcher- http://www.evike.com/products/29688/

No way to do that without chopping the handguard up.

Why not go for the M79 slung on the back?

Could go Resident Evil 2 and get the sawn off M79.

All though the m203 combo wasn't a standard thing in the nam era, they did have them. Unfortuantely they mostly all came with the heat shield "scarface" grip. You can get them with the barrel mounts only, but you would still have to remove the bottom of the triangle heat shield. I don't know and wouldn't trust mounting a rail to the bottom of the shield, as it would look pretty funky, and also, depending on the quality of the piece, might cause a serious break in the hand guard. I think the scar face heat shield and 203 looks bad assed though....
