The Marine Corps is searching for new, high-tech gun sights for 40mm grenade launchers, including the multi-shot M32 and the single-shot M203 that mounts to service rifles.
The service wants at least 2,500 grenade launcher sight systems, acquisition officials said in a Nov. 23 notice to industry. The Corps asked companies to propose by Dec. 7 how their commercially available items could work with the Corps’ launchers. The sights must be compatible with the M203, and ideally will also work with the six-shot, rotational-action M32, Marine officials said.
