    Ok Ade asked me to have a look, number one question is there lands and groves in the tube or is it smooth... Un-screw the tube and show the threads...Also take some more picts... all of the grenade launchers that I own or have seen are marked very well...Ther was an Italian copy from WWII as well...BILL

    I would say it's a original one , but in restored condition, and probably mixed from different launcers parts. So, the phophated part is for sure is hardly cleaned and then a new oxidation applied.

    Hello !

    I donīt believe that this launcher is fake. The code is WaA140. The manufacturer is probably Fabrique National (FN) in Belgium, during German occupation. This firm made these launchers. The code of FN-plant was "ch". This marking seems to ground out.
