Product Description

Made in Japan
Operating principle: Gas powered replica
Ammunition: 40mm slug gas grenades or 40mm BB firing gas grenades
Availability: In stock, new

Type 89 was a simple grenade thrower used by the Impreial Japanese Army infantry. It has a short rifled barrel with an adjustable threaded rod inside. Always fired at an angle of 45 degrees, the range of the projectile was adjusted by moving the rod inside the barrel, thus altering the space inside for combustion. The bottom has a small curved plate to dig into the ground. The Japanese called it a "Leg Mortar" as it was carried strapped to the leg, but a mis-translation in Allied reports led to the term "knee mortar" and the belief that it was fired holding the curved plate against the thigh.

Real weapon technical details:
Weight of grenade 1.43 lb
Max range 700 yards
Weight of mortar 10.05 lb


This mass manufactured replica (by CAW) uses 40mm slug "grenades" that are gas powered and reusable. The slugs can be fired with real knee mortar technique as they will fly in arch and drop to the target. It can also take 40mm CAW MOSCART gas grenades that fire BBs, but their use will require unrealistic firing technique.

Replica dust cover is included with the launcher.
