Marine Corps Is Finally Fielding a New 40mm Grenade Launcher
5 Apr 2019
Military.com | By Matthew Cox

U.S. Marines are about to finally get a new grenade launcher to replace the Vietnam War-era M203, a switch the Army made about 10 years ago.

The Marine Corps plans to field the M320A1 40mm grenade launcher -- which can be used in a standalone mode or mounted beneath weapons such as the M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle
-- in fiscal 2020, according to a recent news release from Marine Corps Systems Command.

The Philippine Marines MARSOG have these in limited numbers too. Some of those rifle-installed variant are fixed on the MARSOG HK416.
