Ones for the AR were banned but they will be legal soon.

Preferably for less than $1500. My local stores don't stock them.

Flare Launchers won't cut.

40MM Baby!

And maybe I get one at Wally World.

If not maybe through the mail?

I heard that they are no longer DDs according to Chuck Schumer.

He said anyone will be able to buy one locally.

"grenade launchers" as defined by the AWB is a flash hider 22mm in diameter. They are used to launch rifle grenades. There is a thread around here about some practice rifle grenades if you're curious as to what they look like.

Why not just pick up a stock A2 FH?
It's a grenade launcher.

ETA: ian187 got in before me.

That would be totally sweet, AWB expires, crime goes down.

The flash hider IS the GL on a '16....

That provision of the AWB was referring to the old-style (pre-underbarrel launcher) muzzle-launched rifle grenades that some of our allies still use...

Most flash supressors go for $25-$50 they will launch any of the European/NATO rifle grenades.

Of course you'll never be allowed to import them, and each one would require a $200 tax and you'd have to go through the NFA process...

I think a few of you are missing the point... CRC is making a JOKE!

Yes, a 22mm A2 flashhider is a grenade launcher by NATO standards. That's one of the ploys the anti-gunners used to make them even more EVIL! A "flashhider" sounds only a little evil... but you can launch grenades with it too... now it's VERY EVIL. Last time I checked, grenades are illegal... and Wal-Mart is out of stock on them anyway.
