Armed Forces Journal has a video clip of the Milkor USA, Inc. MGL-140 6-shot 40mm low-velocity (a.k.a. low-impulse) multiple grenade launcher being demo’d at the annual Armed Forces Journal (AFJ) Shoot-out at Blackwater 2005. In the video, you can see Richard Solberg, Jr., President/CEO of Milkor USA, explaining the weapon’s attributes and features, as well as several AFJ evaluators firing it at a car downrange and hitting the target. In the clip, Col. Bob Morris, Joint Forces Command, states that he thinks the MGL-140 is "a great weapon". "It’s a good infantry soldier weapon", Morris says. Col. Morris was impressed that he hit the target car on the first shot. Our readers may remember that DefenseReview broke the story on the MGL-140 and Martin Electronics, Inc.’s (MEI) specialized 40mm ammo/munitions back in June. To our knowledge, DefenseReview was the first publication in the world to write about the new Milkor USA weapon and MEI ammo. Our original article on the Milkor USA MGL-140/MEI ammo combo was titled New Milkor MGL-140/MEI Hyper-Lethal 40mm Combo/Weapon System for Infantry.
