MK19 MOD-3 Grenade Machine Gun

The MK19 MOD-3, a 40 mm grenade machine gun, is the weapon of choice of the U.S. armed forces for situations demanding portability and versatility. It is a man-portable, crew-served weapon that can be fired from either a tripod-mounted position or a vehicle mount. Utilizing M430 high-explosive, dual-purpose grenades, the MK19 provides high lethality and fragmentation against targets ranging from personnel to lightly armored vehicles.

Other features and benefits include: open-bolt firing that eliminates cook-off; continuous automatic or single-shot firing; dual spade grips that provide stability when firing; and a simple design facilitates easy maintenance. The mean rounds between failure for the MK19 MOD-3 exceeds 20,000 rounds.
