This started off as standard Bushmaster XM15E2S HBAR but I really wanted something that resembled the Army M16A2 w/M203 that I got to handle when I was a kid visiting a military base. So I swapped out the Hbar barrel, put in the Bushmaster Government profile barrel with FH and bayonet lug. Also got the 37mm launcher from RPB, and here we are! One slight problem is that while RPB launchers are a close copy of 203 with it's close attachment, the barrel is steel and this combo is way muzzle heavy. I'll probably find an aluminum tube for it.

SWEET looks like the real thing!!!!

You need to run a few rounds through the pipe so that the rifling will show up!

nice! are you also going to get a side front sling swivel? I dunno if this is the way the Army does it, but it looks like the launcher barrel would get in the way w/ the current setup.

If you remove the M203 handguards I'll take them off your hands. Let me know.

NICE!

How much did you get the 37mm for, if you don't mind me asking?

Yeah but is the 37mm operational and can you get rounds for it.

oh, no, they aren't functional. just airsoft...

NOONE on AR15.com would pay $200 for a non-functional 203 (of even a 37mm flare launcher if you have to be picky)

Why would he be removing the 203 handguards mouseomatic?

Yugo- where the F%&@ did you find that site? Anyone that sells steel core armor piercing ss109 and Tac-Triggers or GAT triggeres is a real stupid shit. I'm ashamed at you for visiting that site and linking to it here.

Google is your friend!

As for the rest, I just skimmed really, didn't look at any of their other products... I saw what I thought were 37mm rounds available and posted it. So sue me for trying to be helpful.

There's no rifling in the barrel. It's actually slightly used, I got it for only $150 with everything and some flares. It's FULLY operation. :D I think it retails for around $230 or so. Glad you guys like the final product. I was wondering about the front sling loop too, it's not very practical as it stands right now. I don't normally sling my AR so it doesn't matter to me but the Army probably uses side sling.

erm, yeah, I"ll be keeping the M203 handguards, otherwise I wouldn't be able to complete the launcher combo. ;)

But they would pay $100 for a fake telescopic stock
