The Blue Force Gear Grenade Launcher Holster has already seen over a year of use by combat forces carrying the H&K M320 the current US Army issue 40mm grenade launcher. While the M320 can be attached to an M4 carbine or used in a stand alone mode, the holster was designed for the latter mode of operation. When used as a stand alone, the M320 resembles a rather large caliber pistol with a telescoping buttstock.
As the M320 can make an M4 carbine rather unwieldy, most troops carry it in the standalone mode and have been storing it in a wide variety of field expedient manners including Blue Force Gear medium vertical pouches, SAW mag pouches, in backpacks or dangling via single point sling.
While there are a couple of other holster solutions on the market, BFG took a completely unique approach. It stores and ships flat and when not mounted to your gear and can be disassembled and stored flat in a pack.
The holster is an open top design with an adjustable cross strap allowing for use with any sighting system. A bungee loop can be placed around the grip for additional retention.
The holster mounts to a 3 x 4 MOLLE field and can be mounted on the right side with the grip to the rear or left side with the grip forward.
