Exhibiting at this years IDEX, South African company MILKOR (Pty) Ltd, announces itís new Lightweight Under Barrel Grenade Launcher.
Due to a worldwide growing demand for a simple, easy to operate, robust but light- weight single shot Under Barrel Grenade Launcher "UBGL", MILKOR set about improving on their tried and tested US-Mk 4.
The original US-Mk 4 has a mass of 1,68 kg (empty) compared to that of the new US-Mk 4 S which weighs 750g with an Aluminium Barrel or 1kg with a Steel barrel.
Unique features include a "Push Button" trigger mechanism as opposed to a conventional Trigger. Users stated the need to differentiate between firing mechanisms on the rifle and the Under Barrel as the soldier invariably, under duress, gets confused if faced with two triggers.
Another feature is the "Swing- to- the- side" opening mechanism enabling the user to easily load all types of ammunition without having the rifleís magazine interfering or the slide mechanism not opening sufficiently to load a longer round.
Milkor will exhibit their new US-Mk4S at IDEX 2009, stand 12D10 (SA Pavilion).
Model of the Milkor 4x4 will be displayed at DSEI 2017
