Deactivated FD203 Grenade Launcher SN. FDSA (U) -
Deactivated Israeli FD203 Stand Alone Unit, fitted with a Colt M203 40mm Stand Alone Grenade Launcher. Full working parts and supplied with a Colt Launcher and FD203 Stand Alone kit. The M203 comes with all the hardware to fix it to the Armalite rifle and can be removed from the stand alone and fixed to a rifle, if you prefer. The M203 Grenade Launcher first entered service in late 1969 and is still on general issue to this day. It is capable of firing different types of 40x46mm munitions out to ranges of 400 metres. These include high explosive, smoke, parachute flares, ground markers, rubber/ foam bullets and grapeshot, though the latter is officially banned under the Geneva Convention. An excellent bit of kit. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold London or Birmingham proof marks and a certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly.
