During both WW1 and WW2 37mm was a standard artillery caliber for virtually all of the combatants. Such casings and deactivated rounds are widely available to collectors. They will not chamber in our launchers and no modification to any 37mm launcher should ever be attempted to accommodate such ammunition. Firing 37mm artillery ammunition from a launcher would doubtless result in the death and dismemberment of the shooter and likely everyone within 20 yards.
Only use commercially loaded ammunition designed for use in 37mm launchers. Anything else might not work and could be very, very dangerous.
Smoke and other rounds are either pyrotechnic or contain pyrotechnic components. That means that they burn HOT! Please exercise caution when using such ammunition. Flares can reach 3000 degrees and present a fire risk if used carelessly. Be aware of what is downrange and use common sense when using our products. That said, Ordnance Group launchers will handle standard 37mm ammunition made by any manufacturer. Available ammunition includes flares, smoke and other pyrotechnic rounds for civilian use. If you are a member of law enforcement or the military you can have a variety of “Less Than Lethal” rounds at your disposal. These include Batons, CS Gas, Wildlife Management (Bird Control) and crowd dispersing Rubber Pellets. Ordnance Group launchers are ideal for use by SWAT Teams and others with critical tactical requirements as well as hobbyists and re-enactors.
A Note on 37mm Ammunition:
Not all 37mm ammunition is alike. The is no SAAMI (Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute) standard for 37mm ammunition as used in launchers. That being the case, ammunition manufactured by ALS, CTS, Chemring and other suppliers can differ in terms of rim diameter, rim profile and other measurements. Ordnance Group has worked diligently to make sure that their launchers are compatible with all major domestic brands of 37mm ammunition and that reliable function is assured and therefore guaranteed.
Some ammunition (that made by SAGE Manufacturing, for example) is purposely constructed to only work in their launcher products. If the ammunition that you have does not follow the general profile of standard 37mm rounds (as shown on the right), do not attempt to chamber it. Please contact us your dealer if you have any questions.
