ACME MK19 GAR® in Training

ACME Mk19 Replica Weapon System

ACME’s newest non-gun, replica weapon system includes everything needed for ultra-realistic training for the Mk 19 40mm automatic grenade launcher.

Use its full suite of weapon sensors to monitor and manage loading, arming, firing, and safing. Use the management software to instantly insert one of several malfunctions to challenge and train gunners with true-to-life weapon issues. And, of course, the training system includes the Gun Active Recoil (GAR®) technology for full-force recoil at full rate of fire so gunners train just like they’ll fight.

 Mk19 Weapon Facts

The Mk 19 is a belt-fed, blowback-operated, air-cooled, crew-served, fully automatic weapon that fires 40mm grenades. It fires disintegrating link, belt-fed grenades at a cyclic rate of 325 to 375 rounds per minute which translates into a practical rate of fire of 60 rounds per minute (rapid) and 40 rounds per minute (sustained).

The weapon has an effective range against point targets out to 1,500 meters and area targets out to 2,212 meters. It can penetrate up to 2 inches of rolled homogenous armor and has an effective anti-personnel fragmentation radius of 15 meters. The Mk 19 provides lethal fire against a range of targets including dismounted infantry, light armored vehicles, and even hovering helicopters.

The versatile weapon can be carried into combat and employed by infantry from a tripod mount or attached to attack vehicles such as HMMWV and armored vehicles such as the Amphibious Assault Vehicle. It’s also been adapted for small attack or riverine boats and for a wide range of Navy mounts

The Mk 19 is used by more than 20 different countries and by the US Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines.
