So digging around GB and saw this training devide for RPG's. It looks like a charge for a RPG, but shoots 7.62x39!! Be sure to check out the youtube he has linked to see it in action

HOW FREAKING COOL IS THIS THING!

Question though, is it legal? Would it be classified as an AOW? It does fire a projectile, and is nothing more than a tube.

Seems like it'd be classified the same as a zip gun with a rifled barrel(which I THINK are legal, not sure though).

So I'm guessing that would be three "guns" that you're buying?

they are legal. and they do fire rounds. similar to what the US military does for training with things like the AT4. its meant to attach to a handle. and aimed like a real rocket. whent he trigger is pulled, instead of an expensive rocket being launched, a cheap bullet is fired.

The devices on a gun would be an attachment, but I have a hunch that firing them like he was doing would get you an unregistered AOW charge with the ATF.

Played with one in Iraq - the locals pointed out that it's designed to be used with tracers so that the operator has visual feedback. Quite neat.

It might be more fun if you happened to have an RPG launcher. That way you don't need to poke it with a bullet tip to fire. :)
