- I do not own this...
Do not take the rating for this particular piece of equipment to be 100% true.
I own a different version called "Mosquito Molds Mini-Launcher". It's another brand. (It looks dumb, but gets the job done!)
I can tell you from my experiences that having a grenade launcher will always give you the upper hand. Even if your 100ft away from your target, it's still a big help because it keeps your enemy running! They don't want you anywhere near them with all that power!
Like I said, it looks kinda' bad on my Dark Hawk b/c it sticks out about 1.5in.
The first time my friends saw it they were like "What the hell?" and made some hurtful jokes... those jokes didn't last long! (lol: when your playing with this make sure your friends have full face masks on, not glasses)
One last thing: You guys all say they should make it cost less... I got news for you; you are not going to find one cheaper.
This is the world of real Airsoft! It's not cheep! Shorty USA is dedicated more to beginnerís airsoft. Recently they have expanded to include AEGs and are now covering the serious Airsofter. Grenade launches are simply not cheep... I doubt you can find one for much less.
Btw, I'm pretty sure $125 is just the launcher and you need the shell too! If your paying $180some for this, you better be into airsoft and own soothing other than a springer. My launcher cost me $250!
Welcome to the world of serious Airsoft!
