The SSGL-40 is a single shot, break open, 40mm grenade launcher. It was created in 2015 as a much more portable 40mm grenade launcher. Instead of a traditional break open like a M79 the barrel instead slides forward by pushing the ambidextrous lever on the side of the gun down. It comes with our 4x Optical Grenade GunSight (OGGS), a fixed skeleton stock, and a lower rail system to attach grips or other attachments. Initially this was designed or MOUT. But at VAC we instead decided to make it effective for all combat applications.
