Our take: The "Thumper" is Here! King Arms has released their faithful replica of the M79 "Thumper" grenade launcher, made of High Grade Aluminum and Real Wood! The King Arms M79's high quality construction makes this grenade launcher feel indestructible. The "Thumper" M79 was introduced during the Vietnam War to provide additional support for infantry platoons. It was designed with such simplicity and durability, that it is still being used by the Armed Forces today (though in a more limited capacity).
The M79 is constructed entirely of High Grade Aluminum and Wood, just like the original M79. The premium quality construction give this grenade launcher a realistic feel and nearly realistic weight, weighing approximately five pounds. The build quality of the M79 is perfect, without any wobbling or loose parts. This launcher uses any 40mm airsoft grenade shells, from 120rd shower shells to foam rockets. The loading mechanism of this grenade launcher is also exactly like its real steel counterpart, with single shot, break open action. The trigger guard can be flipped to either side to accommodate thick gloves, this again is exactly like the real steel version. The buttstock of the King Arms M79 has thick rubber padding providing a very comfortable shooting position.
This grenade launcher is perfect for room clearing and attacking entrenched positions. The M79 grenade launcher comes with sling swivel mounts for easy carrying while it is not in use. Staying true to the M79 grenade launcher's origins, King Arms has produced an extremely durable and accurate replica of the M79 complete with ladder-style leaf-type sights. Though these leaf-type sights are ineffective for airsoft, they add to the realism of this 1:1 scale faithful replica of the "Thumper" M79 grenade launcher.
King Arm's "Thumper" M79 grenade launcher is the best replica on the market, and with its superior construction, and ease of use it is definitely one of the best stand alone grenade launchers on the market. Go "GET SOME", with King Arms' authentic replica "Thumper" M79 airsoft grenade launcher!
