40mm Sponge Cartridge

DESCRIPTION
Developed specifically for rifled grenade launchers such as the U.S. M203 and our TGL-1, this cartridge’s projectile engages the rifling. As a result, the projectile is spin stabilized and therefore highly accurate. The propelling system is similar to the one used in the U.S. M781 40mm practice round which uses an M212 high and low pressure chamber cartridge case. This proven design keeps reliability high and costs low.

While the Model 4557 sponge round is very price competitive, the high cost of practice and qualification ammunition is addressed with the 45 series reload kits. Available in 48, 72, 96, and 120 round configurations, these easily assembled components reduce training costs without sacrificing the performance levels of operational rounds.

OPERATION
The round can be launched from a U.S. M203 or similar launcher such as our TGL-1, TGL-6, or M79. The rubber foam ogive deforms during impact, imparting the kinetic energy over a wide surface.

DANGER
• Impacts to the head, neck, spine, thorax or heart can result in fatal or serious injury.
• For use only by qualified personnel trained in the use of these products.

40mm Liquid/Powder Barricade Cartridges

DESCRIPTION
Developed specifically for rifled grenade launchers such as the U.S. M203 and our TGL-1, these cartridges shoot projectiles that engage the barrel rifling. As a result, the projectiles are spin stabilized and therefore highly accurate.

The propelling system is based on the one used in the U.S. M781 40mm practice round and uses an M212 high and low pressure chamber cartridge case. This proven design keeps reliability high and costs low.

The round is available in CS liquid and powder riot control agent, OC liquid and CN liquid tear agent, and powder and inert liquid for training purposes.

Since no fins are required for stabilization, most of the projectile length can be used to contain liquid or powder agent. This results in a much greater payload than that of competing rounds.

DANGER
• For use only by qualified personnel trained in the use of these products.

40mm Spin Stabilized Flash-Bang Projectile

DESCRIPTION
The Model 4090 is designed for use in 40mm rifled launcher’s such as the M203, M79 and our TGL-1. The round uses the proven M212 cartridge case for propulsion. The flash charge payload is contained in a rubber and plastic projectile, which is spin stabilized for accuracy. The flash charge is initiated by a pyrotechnic delay. Dual in line delays are used for safety.

This round provides a loud report and a bright flash 328 meters downrange. The resulting rubber and plastic fragments are low in kinetic energy and present a low risk of injury. Ballistic and timing accuracy enable precise placement of single shots or multiple shot patterns. This round is especially effective when used in conjunction with our TGL-6 six shot rotary magazine launcher.

DANGER
• For outdoor use only. Potential fire hazard.
• For use only by qualified personnel trained in the use of these products.
• For Military and Export Only

40mm CS, CN & White Smoke Rounds

DESCRIPTION
These projectiles were developed specifically for 40mm grenade launchers such as the U.S. M203 and our TGL-1. The cartridge case fully chambers in such launchers, eliminating the possibility of the cartridge slipping past the extractor, as may occur with undersized cartridges. The undercut at the cartridge base further ensures reliable extraction after every shot. These are true 40mm rounds. They will not chamber in 37/38mm launchers.

These rounds are available in CN tear agent, CS riot control agent, and white smoke for screening and tactical purposes.

OPERATION
The round can be launched from a U.S. M203 or similar launcher such as our TGL-1 or M79. Firing the cartridge initiates the projectile. Smoke is emitted from ports at both ends of the projectile.

DANGER
• For outdoor use only. Potential fire hazard.
• For use only by qualified personnel trained in the use of these products.

These cartridges were developed specifically for 40mm grenade launchers such as the U.S. M203, M79 and the CTS TGL-1. The cartridge case fully chambers in such launchers, eliminating the possibility of the cartridge slipping past the extractor, as may occur with undersized cartridges. the undercut at the cartridge base further ensures reliable extraction after every shot.

DANGER
• Do not fire at close range.
• For use only by qualified personnel trained in the use of these products.
