Description

This product is not a RIF (Replica Imitation Firearm) and does not require VCRA/UKARA registration.

S-Thunder is pleased to announce the availability of the new Single Barrel Pistol Grip Launcher for S-Thunder’s Gas Powered Grenade product line. It is also compatible with all M203 style 40mm grenades.

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN THE PAGE FOR VIDEO.

The SB01 Launcher is light weight but extremely durable, and only requires minimum trigger force to fire, even with CO2 grenades. On receiving the first samples off the initial production-run of this launcher, we were very surprised to feel how light and 'fragile' these felt in the hand and to be quite honest, we were worried that S-Thunder had made a mistake by making them as cheaply as possible. So we deliberately tried to break one. Surely (we thought) if we just put a heavy grenade in this and drop it on a concrete floor, it's going to crack if not smash into pieces? How wrong we were! Five hefty throws to the floor later, the worst that happened was the locking mechanism opened. Not even a scratch on any part of the launcher could be seen. The concrete floor had carpet tiles on it, nothing more. S-Thunder is taking full advantage of the wide range of speciality engineered materials that are available today. Several years ago and due to the fact manufacturers were limited by the number of material choices available, metals were used for manufacturing many items. For example, several components in todays modern automobiles utilize engineered composite materials, whereas up to a a few years ago, these same parts were made of more heavy and costly metals. Today, when the choice of materials available is so vast, S-Thunder is utilizing leading edge composite materials in our new line of grenade launchers that are as durable as metal, light weight and more cost effective to manufacture. In keeping with our mission, S-Thunder continues to offer customers functional, innovative, quality and durable products at affordable prices. Our engineering team found unique ways to reduce the manufacturing costs of S-Thunder's new line of grenade launchers and we are happy to pass these savings directly to our customers. We feel that S-Thunder's pistol type grenade launchers perform as well or better than most others and are among the lowest priced units available in the market, undercutting many others by 30 to over 50% in price. This will allow for a wider range of grenadiers to have access to these products for use in milsim, scenario, woodsball, CQB as well as for law enforcement and tactical / military training use. Does not come with a grenade, these are available separately.

everything on this is built with cost and function in mind. there are no moulded sights, there dont need to be. its an airsoft grenade launcher. the grip looks like an off the shelf M4 one, the safety catch and barrel release, simple sliding mechanisms.

a 2 part construction with a single moulded barrel, not even glued together, but held together by the barrel and the pistol grip.

there is very little metal, besides a screw for the pistol grip to go into, 3 possible springs and the barel pivot, this is mostly poylmer. really really dense polymer, and not shiny stuff.

its estreamly lightweigh, which i cant see as a disadvantage. many people crave realistic weight, but im sure if the military could come up with a grenade launcher this light, they would buy millions of them.

a small, imtimidating little trinket this truly is. and this plus a few SHS grenades wont break the bank, and can change any CQB stalemate in an instant.

this is a superb tool for cqb room clearance, being small,light and very pointable,
even though it is a good quality polymer/plastic, it is quite sturdy and should take some abuse.
the controls are simple being only a trigger and a safety catch.

the spread is quite tight using one weight bb but using mixed weights helps the scatter.

if you dont want a bulky underslung m203 launcher then this is the launcher for you!

Snapped one of these up for £20 during the flash sale.
I couldn't be happier! Most of the launcher is made of very strong plastic and the trigger, barrel release and safety feel like they're actually made of metal.
Comfortable to hold and feels nice and weighty with a shell loaded in.
I can't wait to take this to my next skirmish; and its so compact I manage to fit it into my Begadi drop leg holster!

Again, couldn't be happier - many thanks AW!

I purchased this as a secondary back up, after I had lost my M203 somewhere in my house!

Now, Knowing it was a polymer build, and I was used to the reliable metallic *clink* of my M203, I wasn't expecting too much.

I was very, VERY mistaken. This pistol, simply put, is so much more practical, I will NEVER go back to using a gun mounted launcher again.

The build quality is excellent, the feel in your hand is excellent, save some slight pressure between the trigger guard and the finger point on the pistol grip if you have big fingers like me.

Ultimately, this is now the only launcher I will be using, and can honestly say I don't think I will ever want to change from it.

Although it's plastic, it feels fairly sturdy. SImple to load, easier to fire and the safety works. What more do you need?

This pistol is great if room is limited for loadout and you want some punch if you are clearing a bunker or area. This is just a powerful as an underslung M203 so certainly has enough power.

i bought this as a gift for my friend, so havnt seen it myself, but his opinion was that its ultra light, so it feels like your carrying nothing in your hand..

his only slight concern is that the trigger itself seems rather weak, and may snap after a fair few uses..i guess time will tell

delivery was fantastic..tho albiet rather pricey now..i remember paying alot less in the past.


all in all great product and cant wait to get one myself..will just combine shipping with other things to make it worth it :)

What a great little product. The launcher is made of a tough but incredibly light polymer plastic and is remarkable simple to use. This little monster resembles an old time Flare gun and although it has no sights it points well. The trigger is light but not too light and the spray of bb's when fired is impressive. This has to be one of the most useful innovations for room clearance so far. If you only buy one airsoft pruduct this year get one of these little beasties!!

This is a great piece of kit, When I first got it, I picked it up it was light and was like this ain't going to be strong but it is strong, brought two grenades with it and am loving this piece of kit I was running around with and clearing out buildings at local skirmish site and people were like "What's that!?"

This is a beast!
Its small, lightweight (only 240g (without grenade)), and its RIF :D. What more can you want for £35. As described above the plastic on first impressions feels very fragile but it is solid, I mean truly solid. And just to top it all of it fits in most adjustable holsters.

The only bad thing that I can find with this gun is the grenade that is recommended for it only comes with 10 caps which are used to stop the bb's from falling out. You can buy more caps for the grenade (10 for £2.99). Don't get me wrong its a cracking grenade, I would just buying the "Madbull M381 18shot High power gas grenade" as well because their is no need for the caps.

All in all a brilliant bit of kit. Buy several :)

OMG - This is by far the best hand held launcher I've ever used! Seriously guys this is a quality piece of kit. Arrived in perfect condition in it's own cute little box. Don't be fooled by it's lightweight flimsy feel when you first touch it -

I did a classic "You've been framed" moment when running after a group of guys the other day: They didn'y know I was there so being sneeky I waited until the last moment to run out and surprise them from behind - for some reason known only to my annoyingly cheap boot laces I tripped over, ended up going a "failed" combat roll and flung my lovely new S Thunder Grenade Launcher full force straight into a solid brick wall!! To add salt into my gaping wound that was my pride the grenade got set off by the impact facing me so I ended up shooting myself then got full auto from the 6 guys I was trying to shoot - Doh!!!
I picked myself up - nursed my wounds and then with a tear in my eye picked up the grenade launcher with full expectation of finding it buggered - !?!?!?!?! OMG - There was bits of brick rubble all over it but when I dusted it off it didn't even have a scratch!
Comment from one of the shooters "Dude that thing rocks, I want one"

Nuff said ;)

Always fancied a grenade launcher, but was always put off by the price.
This S-Thunder launcher though, was worth taking a gamble on, and i have to say, it was worth the punt!
It's a very simple unit.
Lightweight, but somehow, very solid feeling.
Very little looks as though it could go wrong.
Small enough to fit in a utility pouch/ combat trouser pocket.
Waiting for some grenades now, so i can go give it a "bloop". Cant wait!

Ps. I ordered it on Monday and it arrived (very well packaged btw) on Tuesday!

After being bought some 40mm's last year I'd not gotten around to actually buying a decent launcher up until now, Was the wait worth it? Oh yes very much so.

Boxed up perfectly and arriving in 100% condition I got straight to work using it, use is very simple, one slider opens up the barrel and the other is safety on or safety off. That is literally it, nothing mind bogglingly confusing or fiddly, just drop an armed 40mm in there flick the safety and away you go.

I've marked the quality down to 4* only because after a few uses the 40mm's tend to get slightly lodged in when removing a spent shell you have to prod it from the firing end but nothing major, its probably a good thing the shell doesn't move around at all anyhow so some may view it as a 5* but I'll let you decide that.

Onto the size.... this fits into an old Blackhawk pistol drop leg perfectly that normally houses my Socom M91A (silencer removed.)

Weight... Extremely light but strong and with the shell inside its very stable for aiming, a very good weight balance i reckon. Used this alongside my pistol dual wielding all day down Drakelow tunnels this Sunday gone and enjoyed every minute with it. Even bagged myself 3+ kills in one shot.

When I first read the write up for the Sthunder launcher, I thought "can it really be that good" but for only £35 I figured, what the hell its worth a punt. It arrived well packaged and certainly looked the part, being a perfect size to stow in a pouch somewhere ready for action, but on first inspection it felt light in the hand, which i'll admit made me wonder if it might be a bit fragile.
However, after loading the shell and firing it a quite a few times to test the shells, it proved itself to be a very strong little pistol launcher, despite being manhandled by myself in an effort to discover how durable it was.

A friend was here while I was testing it and he now wants one as well, as even him with his yeti fingers and tendency towards breaking anything remotely fragile didnt manage to break it and tbh i'd not hesitate to buy another should I manage to break this one at some point, as its excellent value for a low low price.
I'm now looking forwards to actually getting a game with it, as after the testing process the missus whisked it away somewhere, as by all accounts you cant have xmas presents, even airsoft ones....until xmas, that will teach me to use that as a reason for buying something ;)
