The M203 (dismounted here) is a single-shot 40 mm under-barrel grenade launcher designed to attach to a rifle. It uses the same rounds as the older stand-alone M79 break-action grenade launcher, which utilizes the High-Low Propulsion System to keep recoil forces low. Though versatile, and compatible with many rifle models, the M203 was originally designed for the U.S. M16 and its variant, the M4 Carbine.

M79 Grenade Launcher  As one of the best marksmen in my company, I was assigned this M79 grenade launcher while serving with the 1st Air Cavalry Division in Vietnam. It was not considered a great thing to have, as it made you something of a target for the enemy. (Photo by James Salvas on Flickr)
