The Scepter 4000-A Grenade Launcher is a new, patented 40mm launcher that not only fires the Scepter 40mm (2-oz) fragmentation paintball grenade, but grapeshot loads as well. This launcher can be ordered to fit on ANY MARKER! including: Spyder, Piranha, Warsensor 66, Armotech WG65, SIM4, and Tippmann 98 / A-5 markers. It is made from the highest grade aircraft aluminum and uses the marker's air source.
The Scepter 4000-A fires it's load at 145 FPS, and has a range of 50-70 yards. The frag grenade has a "kill zone" of 15'! It is safe to fire at any range, as long as everyone is wearing normal paintball safety gear. It will NOT dislodge paintball goggles, even at point-blank range!
These launchers are the only approved launchers at Oklahoma D-Day, and are permitted at most fields, by most national promoters.
The Scepter Combat Systems 4000-A Paintball Grenade Launcher is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Ability to launch grenades distances that cant be thrown. integration into a regular paintball marker
trigger mechanism hard to operate on first use. Grenades are small
as a scenario player, im always looking to add to the ability to be a "stand alone" player. this grenade launcher, unlike others that shoot just paintballs, actually shoots paint grenades. the grenades are not easy to fill, but they save you a lot of cash-for the price of 4-5 pre-made grenades you get 25 Scepter grenades. the look of the launcher is very authentic, i cant really think of any other way to make it better.
I would definitely recommend this to the hardcore scenario player with the cash to spare

I absolutely love this. It kicks major butt. Dealing with scepter was great. Definitely worth the money and the wait. Love being able to shoot grenades way farther than you could ever possibly throw one. Love seeing opponents dripping orange with paint. I cant wait to use it in a large scenario game.
If you can buy 1 do it, absolute best upgrade ever,
I recently traded for a new Scepter model 4000-A launcher for my A-5. Best trade I've ever made. The launcher is very well constructed. It will stand up to the rigors of extreme use with no problems. Installation was simple, and the launcher came with all necessary hardware for a basic install. I had to get a few parts for a custom install, but it was only a few fittings. Here is the installed product:
The grenades all have to be hand made, which can be a drag, but also makes you more aware of what you are shooting at. The grenade kit from S.C.S. includes everything you need to make grenades, including eye protection. How about that? Someone that cares about safety! The grenade making process is relatively simple, and takes about an hour to make 25 grenades. Just make sure you do this part outside. My ceiling took a grenade hit and the old lady is not thrilled.
Now the fun part of the review. The launcher shoots flawlessly. Loading the sabots is kind of tricky the first couple of times, but once you've got the hang of it, it's a fairly quick process. The launcher is good for about 75 yards shooting at a 45 degree angle. The grenades explode with a 15 foot kill circle, and have had no duds, with the exception of a couple premature explosions. Once loaded, make sure you don't point the launcher down, or the grenade will fall out of the sabot. The launcher is also capable of firing grapeshot loads (15 paintballs stuffed into a sabot). This is especially handy for clearing bunkers. give the door at least 10 feet so the balls can leave the sabot and BAM! shotgun blast clears the room. This is extremely effective. I know of a few people who can vouch for this.
Overall, this is an excellent product and well worth the money. The intimidation alone is enough to make your opponents head-hunt you every game just to make sure that they aren't on the business end of your marker, but that's what we want, isn't it? I'll be at MMG '05 and TWC '05 if anyone wants to see this in person. Hope this helps - Mike
Excellent product, adds an aspect to the game that really makes it fun.
Must depress trigger quickly and completely for proper operation.
Have the universal 4000 - A5. The mounting kit is very nice, loos nice on the marker (A5 with Flatline). Fires a grapeshot (15 - 20) paintballs approx 190 fps and has a range of about 80 yards. The grenade has a little less velocity and range. This launcher is actually effective and not a novelty. Two thumbs up!
If you play scenario / woodsball you need one of these on you team. Intimidating, effective, and the guys at Scepter are great!
Loading can be a bit tricky especially if under fire.
I used this 203 launcher at the Fort Orde Scenario Game in Monterey, The game was riddled with houses, trees, garages, and hill sides. Optimal playing ground for a piece of equipment such as this. It has excellent range, and is extremely reliable. Out of 15 or so shots only had 2 miss fires and they were due to operator error. This launcher proved itself again and again. I highly recommend picking one up...I know I want to.
I highly recommend this product to be added to your scenario / paintball arsenal.

Well I bought this off e bay a few months ago and it has been the sweetest add on to my a5 ever since. The only thing was mounting it to my marker was the problem. with a few slices from the dremel to my sd shroud I was in business! I fell in love with it and will never go back! It is amazing to launch grenades and do the grape shot.The grape shot is much like a shotgun blast of paint balls that works best at a distance of no more than 30 feet away.Well what are you waiting on go get your own you won't be disappointed!
