Look what followed me home. She is pretty much useless and ugly, but when was the last time you got to play with one?

(It is 37mm for those that are curious)

Mechanical. After loading, you wind the drum to store energy in the spring, and then with a pull of the trigger it will index by one and drop the firing pin.

So basically it is a huge double action revolver with a spring assist to move the huge drum.

He bought it on a whim, had never seen Dogs of War & didn't know it was used in a movie at all.

Does anyone have a good source for 37mm munitions?

How about a good info source for rolling your own?

I think in my future I might have a need for a few flares and such

I've never owned a 37mm launcher, and have no idea how complete, safe or accurate any of this information is.
