Review: about five months ago i went insane and bought my whole current setup from RAP. the main marker i bought the T68 Extreme Sniper Package, which comes with Phantom Thunder Grenade Launcher (long). and i also bought 2 more M68 Grenades (if you buy the launcher by its self, note that it doesn't come with grenades). first of all, I obviously play more of a Sniping style. so one may say, What the hell does a sniper need a grenade launcher for? ill tell you. my marker is not exactly a CQW, which is why i have my dual pistols. but the launcher has 3 incredible uses: 1)This thing is LOUD, about as loud as 9mm hand gun, and on a PB field that is unheard of. so its great to make people get low in there holes so you can run away. 2) this thing is POWERFUL , if you hit something they will know, the first person i hit was a smaller guy about 20 ft away who was trying to bunker rush me, i popped up and release the round into him. 3 hit his left leg tripping him one in his right bicep making his drop his marker and the last one missed, I can still remembering his rolling across the mud. I being horrified, sprained up to see if he was dead, the first words out oh his mouth when i rolled him over was "i want one". the third use is one specifically for Qloaders users, one of the biggest complaints to this grand reloading system was that your marker can't be fired while reloading. this launcher works like a shotgun. therefore you have on scary shot before the shoot you while your reloading.
but of course everything cool has its downfall
two major and one minor problems i had
1) this thing is HEAVY. about 2.5 pounds plus another .8 pounds for the grenade. that's alot to put on front of your marker. it makes handling poorer and slower, my sling helps with the weight but it is still alot of bulk
2)OK if you have a wish to ACCURATELY hit anything beyond 20ft, then this is not for you. it has a shotgun effect and has a max range about 75 feet, but um wont hit what you aim at if its smaller then a garage door, but it is fun to fire on an advancing squad see them all duck and then 3 of them stumble to their feet with guns in the air stunned.
3)this thing is very tricky to reload, when i first started it took me about 15 sec to get one out in an pouch and another one in. so you might want to practice while watching T.V. and receive strange glances from everyone in the room that a mass murder would espect. but on to charging the grenades, this is a thing that takes ALOT of practice to get everything right. i would advise geting some practice balls from RAP so you can mess with it inside. (I advise this cuz i blew a hole in my fence and no one was very happy
Conclusion: Overall, if you got the cash and need a scare to run away device, it is also GRANDLY INTIMIDATING. when people see me walk on the field the first words are always "does that hurt?" or more simply "OH GAWD". in the end, great fun but very costly. i would recommend it for a woodland player, to slow to work well in speed ball
