What Are Airsoft Grenade Launchers?

An airsoft grenade launcher is a replica device designed to fire small explosive projectiles called “airsoft grenades”. The vast majority of grenade launchers available on the market are made out of ABS plastic and use either gas or battery power to function.

These devices are mostly used in close quarters combat (CQB) due to their ability to clear rooms quickly and efficiently.

Types of Airsoft Grenade Launchers

There are two main types of airsoft grenade launchers: under barrel and stand-alone.

Underbarrel airsoft grenade launchers are designed to be mounted on an airsoft rifle, usually underneath the barrel. This allows for a more compact design and keeps the weight of the weapon down.

Stand-alone airsoft grenade launchers are not designed to be mounted on a rifle and are meant to be used as a standalone weapon. These types of grenade launchers are typically larger and heavier than their under barrel counterparts.

The most popular type of airsoft grenade launchers are M203’s, which are replicas of the real steel M203 grenade launchers that were designed for the US military’s M16 assault rifles.

Most airsoft grenade launchers are a riff on the M203 single shot, 40mm grenade launcher.

Designed to be attached to a rifle barrel, the M203 provided a versatile ordinance option to a standard U.S M16 and M4 Carbine. Traditionally a situational weapon, a grenade isn’t effective in every scenario, but where it is, it shines.

The M203 launcher solved this problem by offering a portable, easily to manage option to a rifle, which worked in many more situations.
