Beretta GLX160 Grenade Launcher

The Beretta GLX160 Grenade Launcher was developed in conjunction with the ARX160 automatic rifle for the Italian military for the Soldato Futuro (Future Soldier) program.  It's a single shot, breech loaded, shoulder-fired and chambered for the 40mm low velocity grenade (40x46 LV).

The GLX 160 was designed either to be mounted under the ARX160 or used as a stand-alone platform with an optional 5-position stock and pistol grip.  It's made of polymer and a steel alloy barrel to reduce weight.  It also has a double-action-only trigger which makes it safer to operate in case of a misfire.  It comes standard with iron sights and has provision for mounting additional sights.
