DEFENCE TECHNOLOGY 40MM MULTI LAUNCHER
APPLICATION: The 40MM Multi-Launcher was designed to discharge all Defense Technology/Federal Laboratories 40MM munitions.
Most of the launcher components utilize aircraft grade nonferrous high-strength alloys, with hardened corrosion resistant finishes. Where absolute strength is essential, the launcher also combines machined and hardened alloy steels along with premium casted and forged parts. The
result is an economical; and durable launcher with small tolerances for optimum assembly and fit.
A high power spring motor drives the magazine/cylinder of the launcher. This design allows optimal performance, reliability, and simplicity. Operators will be familiar with the pump action used to advance the cylinder, as it is the same basic motor skill utilized for shotgun deployment.
Cylinder advancement is separate from the firing mechanisms and eliminates index via the trigger and the two-stage trigger function. Therefore, the standard trigger function and reduced pull allows for better target acquisition and total control of cartridge discharge during multiple deployment. In addition with an exposed hammer and double action mechanism, the round can be discharged using either single or double trigger actions.
Standard sighting systems include an adjustable sight bead and a built-in dovetail rail for the easy addition of after market optics. An added feature is our new ergonomically designed front grip and stock.
Shipped in a durable, waterproof hard case incorporating die cut padding and pressure relief valve will assure the necessary protection to keep the 1375 Multi-Launcher in top shape and functioning form.

WARNING: This product is to be used only by authorized and trained Law
Enforcement, Correction, or Military Personnel. This product may cause serious injury or death to you or others. This product may cause serious
damage to property. Handle, store and use with extreme c a r e and caution. Use only as instructed.

Chemical Agent Rotation

The manufacturers of most modern chemical agents recommend that your operational stocks be rotated every four years. This means that in effect most of your stock will have a shelf life of four years. This is to ensure not only that the chemical agent will function as required but to ensure that the detonators or means of initiation will function correctly and not leave you with a malfunctioning munition that has to be destroyed. VAST recommends that you utilise 25% of your stock for training and replace it with new stock. This ensures the operational capability of your personnel and munitions.
