One of the games I recalled was a stalemate in a corridor the otherside were firing and then one of them decide to fire a 40mm nades down the hall (about 150ft) it barely reached half way, my response with the CO2 were more satisfying, after firing three rapid rounds with my revolver launcher, making everyone deaf we could see about half of those hunkered down walked off, the remaining squad was very cautious when they poked their heads out, then one of those guys shouted he's empty, get them!.....three more shots later another 8 fell victim to the 108 cherries.......Fuck he's out get him!.....Two more shots of the 204 glden dildo the last three called hit, on the way out they could not beleive their eyes and noticed that 20plus guys can't past a corridor being held down by two shooter and a grenadier with too many nades. I change the configuration on my launcher all the time (sometime the opponents would count my shots) The launcher revolver can be reconfigured with additional launchers attached to the rail system.
Yeah, I can understand the "giggle factor".. running around with 15+ Tornadoes and two always ready and primed in your hands gives the pretty much the same feeling, but what I still don't get is how you manage with so many to reload - especially with CO2.

Do you often have to sit out rounds during skirmishes often?

No in a typical skirmishes, depend on the space or my extra arsenal i usually load anywhere from 30 to 60 nades which will consist of 24 cherries and anywhere from 24 to 30 kings either way it will give me more than what I need for the day the only time I ever recall bringing almost all of teh 60x cherries and 60x Kings are in one of Zeons game where there was thre terminator, that game i brought in almost 100 nades or 50 each.

FYI it takes about 2 hrs for 60 nades, that's including taking them apart, lubed, reset and load

Alright guys, I need some help and I didn't want to create a whole other grenade launcher thread, so I'm sorry if I might be hijacking this thread. Anyways, here's my plan.
I'll be getting this gun-
http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_inf...oducts_id=7779
This M203- http://www.airsoftpost.com/product_i...ducts_id=32643
These shells- http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_inf...oducts_id=1210
So, my question is what parts would I need to run those shells in that launcher, because some of you mentioned steel parts, but I have no idea on where to get them. I live in the U.S. by the way. Is it easy to install the steel parts as well?

One more question, I'm a noob when it comes to all of this, so how do I charge the shells?

The XM204 shells will not fit an M203 grenade launcher. They're too long.

Wildcard, How much have you invested in shells alone? Those numbers are pretty out there, hahahah.

Once i'm done my current projects I do want to get a launcher setup going, but I can only see myself packing 10 nades at the least.

How many rounds of those things do you go through on an average game?

I had a G&P short launcher and the 204s fit, albeit rather snug.

Yeah, the 204's *DID* fit, but you'd have to fiddle with it to get them at the right angle just so you could get them in to the chamber. Extracting spent shells was even more difficult. Ultimately, I'd say they were a hindrance, and would recommend 108's instead.

I got my steel parts from G&P the spring I use the G&P reinforced trigger spring from their gbbr the others are custom milled, 204 king/yellow dildo are snug on the G&P 203 but on mine they are fine (been using them alot) they fit nice on the CA

@ Sterlok, I invested way too much on these 120 plus nades and bastard.25 over the last three plus years (some been sold and replced due to being too worn down) ideally depends what kind of launchers you use around 30 will do, I went overboard because I have multiple launchers and I like to have spares. In a typical game I will go through around 60 or more depending on the game and my mood.

FYI the only thing I have to change so the most on these nades are the retaining O-Ringe, SS fill valves (replace the old brass ones) and three valve shuttles

Wildcard, that's disgusting how many 40mm rounds you have. I'm truly in awe of how one man can acquire that many. I sure wouldn't want to meet you on the field!

Personally I wouldn't play if people used these.
Just my opinion but getting shot in the face with one of these would be devastating, and now a days with kids playing maturity level just keeps dropping.

Your loss. There have been a many great games where we deployed grenades. Never have I seen one take a high powered grenade to the face as we observe a clear cut MED.

Trick is, not just anybody can deploy something effectively and safely... Look at B.A rifles for example.
Don't judge everybody into one lump sum...
