Belt-fed Mk 19 Grenade Launcher in action on full auto


The Mark 19 grenade launcher is an American made 40 mm belt-fed automatic tool of destruction.

Developed during the Vietnam War, the first version of the Mark 19 (Mod 0) was considered too unsafe and unreliable in 1966. By 1972 the Navy had improved the weapon significantly with the Mod 1. By 1983 the US Army adopted the Mod 3, which remains in service even today.

The practical fire rate of the Mk 19 is about 60 rounds per minute for rapid fire, or 40 rounds per minute for sustained fire with a maximum distance over 2,400 yards.

The US Army is rolling out a variety of new features for the Mk 19 that could be introduced as early as the end of this year. Those features included faster muzzle velocity, increased cyclic rate, a redesigned round-positioning block that will reduce misfires, improved durability, and more.

I think it's why most friends don't like to watch military movies with me... Cause I sit there and do a AAR of their actions.

I usually try to suspend disbelief but sometimes can't help it. Think the worst was watching "The Last Ship" when the skipper held the fuse in place at a power panel to keep it from blowing. Lmfao!!!
I said, "Ok, in real life he's dead now and that power panel doesnt use fuses." Then shut the TV off and told the family they weren't allowed to watch that show anymore.

It digressed worse from that point too.

There are few military movies that are done correctly and many TV series are worse than...

Happy 100th Birthday to U.S. Army WWII Veteran Kenneth Brunelli! A member of the Civilian Conservation Corp, Brunelli was drafted into WWII as a medic assigned to 5th Armored Division, 47th Medical Detachment Battalion from 1942 to 1945. He earned the Victory Medal; 3 bronze battle stars in Rome-Arno, Rhineland and Central Europe, as well as the Good Conduct Medal. Upon his return to the U.S. he joined and worked his way up through an Ironworker apprenticeship program in Milwaukee. Serving as Local #8 Ironworker foreman during the building of the Hone Bridge and Allen-Bradley clock tower.
What's the secret to his longevity? "Good genes, healthy food, staying very active, and playing Sheepshead!”
Somewhat of a jokester Brunelli shares his thoughts on turning 100, “That can’t be right. Holy cow… that’s OLD! This is getting ridiculous. I feel 60!”
Reflecting on his assignment as a medic he states, “I don’t know why they made me a medic, I couldn’t stand the sight of blood! They told me I had a high I.Q. so I asked, "What’s an IQ?"”
Brunelli plans to celebrate his centennial this week with his family and friends. Happy Birthday!

My biggest complaint is whenever ANYBODY pulls a pistol, of ANY kind, you hear the four clicks sound of a Colt Single Action Army being cocked.

Mine is whenever they jack a round into the chamber. Doesn't matter which weapon. If you're in a Red status there's a round in the chamber already.

Fire shots from an M4 and have the dust cover still closed.

Some are more realistic than others, but all hide the... wait for it... waiting we do. Nobody would watch those movies. I think we figured after 20 years in the Army you'll lose 21 years of your life just sitting and waiting.

Sunday marked the very first official first annual Navajo Code Talkers Day as a state holiday in Arizona. It’s an important honor and I didn’t want it go by uncelebrated. After the recent passing of Samuel Sandoval at the age of 98, only three Navajo Code Talkers are still with us. It’s important that we remember their legacy. Navajos weren’t even recognized as US citizens until 1924. But they stepped up to fight for their country in WWII, a country that had not treated them very well. More than 3,000 Navajos served in the Army, Navy, Marines, and Women’s Army Corps. Others left the reservation to work in war-related industries. But the most famous, were the Code Talkers, men who created an unbreakable code using their Native language. They fought in the Pacific Theater and their work saved lives and shortened the war. I'm glad that these remarkable men are finally being acknowledged. And rest in peace, Samuel Sandoval.

On August 19th, 2010, the last US combat brigades departed Iraq in the early morning. Convoys of US troops had been moving out of Iraq to Kuwait for several days, and NBC News broadcast live from Iraq as the last convoy crossed the border. While all combat brigades left the country, an additional 50,000 personnel (including Advise and Assist Brigades) remained in the country to provide support for the Iraqi military.
