    Does anyone know anything about getting a M-79 with a sleeved 37mm barrel or with a 37mm barrel put on to replace the 40mm barrel? I've heard of such things,but never found a source.

    My state doesn't allow "Destructive Devices" or I'd just save up and shell out for a live 40mm M-79. I figure flares and smoke rounds out of a 37mm sleeved M-79 would be the next best thing. (Btw, I'm *only* interested in a M-79. I have no interest in those underslung M203 repro flare launchers)

    Does it have to be an M-79? I think the ATF would say "once a grenade launcher, always a grenade launcher".

    I'd look around on 37mm.com. Lots of break-action launchers, but the only one I saw that really looks like a M-79 is by Randy Shivak. Not cheap, :uhoh: but he has 37mm barrels.

    My understanding is that the barrel is the restricted part of the grenade launcher. I've heard that you can own a M-79 without it being a DD as long as the barrel is replaced with a 37mm barrel.

    Now, I could be wrong. One of the places I saw that info was here though, so I was hoping someone actually knows and will post.
