XRGL40® 40mm Extended Range Multi-shot Grenade Launcher (40mm MGL)NSN1010-17-126-2742
Rippel Effect designed its handheld 40mm XRGL40®extended range grenade launcher as a lightweight area weapon and force multiplier for extreme firepower and non-lethal applications.
The concept was proven in 2007, as a world’s first, and introduced at the Shrivenham Small Arms and Cannons Symposium in 2008. Refer to the following link:
This 4th generation 40mm MGL fires both standard 40 x 46mm low-velocity (LV) type rounds and medium velocity (MV) 40 x 51mm ammunition, as well as less-lethal grenades without reconfigurating the weapon.
Favored by infantry grenadiers, marines and special operations forces in close quarters combat (CQC), it is also ideal for peacekeepers and law enforcement agencies whose operations often preclude the use of excessive force.
Weighing 5 kg (11 lb) the Rippel Effect extended range 40mm MGL is lighter and more compact than any other NATO qualified 40mm MGL on the market today. Despite its light weight, the extended range 40mm MGL’s recoil falls well within the international TOP-3-2-504 specification.
Fully qualified and in service in numerous countries worldwide, the XRGL40® was independently verified to hit targets consistently and accurately at 800m ranges. It can also be used in a pinpoint role at ranges up to 250m. The optimal sighting system for use on the XRGL40® MGL is Rippel Effect’s own electronically programmable multi-velocity GR40® that distinguishes between different ammunition types.
MSGL40® 40mm Multi-shot Grenade Launcher (MGL)
The Rippel Effect compact lightweight 4th generation MSGL40® is a 40mm multi-shot grenade launcher (40mm MGL) for firing 40 x 46mm low velocity grenades as well as less-lethal ammunition not longer than 140mm.
Fully qualified and in production, this 40mm MGL weapon system is ideal for warfighter operations in close quarters combat (CQC), military peacekeeping and law enforcement. Designed as an area weapon, it is best matched with Rippel Effect’s compact all-weather CRAR32™reflex sighting system.
Favored by infantry grenadiers, marines and special operations (SO) forces, it is a true force multiplier, delivering six standard 40x46mm low-velocity (LV) type rounds in less than three seconds at ranges up to 400m (1,300 ft) in a terminal area of 20m x 60m (66 ft x 197 ft). In pinpoint roles the MSGL40® is accurate at ranges up to 150m (500 ft).
It weighs 5 kg, approximately the same weight as most modern assault rifles fitted with an under-barrel grenade launcher.
RLL37/38 and RLL40: Less-Lethal Launchers
In response to client requirements, Rippel Effect has launched its range of innovative less-lethal launchers for the world market.
The RLL37/38™ less-lethal launcher is aimed at law enforcement agencies, SWAT teams and military peacekeeping forces whose operations usually preclude deadly force.
An innovative feature of the RLL37/38™ is the ability to reverse or forward select grenades without opening the launcher. This enables intentional skipping of rounds and quick reverting to skipped ones.
The six-shot cylinder cannot be over-tensioned when winding it. The 3.8 kg (< 7 lb) less-lethal launcher has a fail-safe feature to prevent it being used with lethal grenades.
Rippel Effect also offers the launcher in a 40mm version due to the prevalence of both 40mm and 37/38mm calibers in the military / defense and law enforcement environments.
