While the aftermarket for firearm accessories is a barrel (get the pun) full of exciting and fun stuff for AR users, one thing that all the AR shooters love is the ‘67 mm AR 15 Utility (Can) Launcher from F5 MFG. Fully compliant, our series of can cannons are the perfect accessory to raise the adrenaline rush. There’s nothing that satisfies the itch better when you want to have fun on the range with your AR, but you are not in the mood to shoot live rounds. It gives you the option to launch anything that comes to your imagination that fits inside the launcher. Here’s a deep dig down on how to work with the F5 can launcher and all the fun things you can do with it.
How Does the F5 Can Launcher Work?
The F5 soda launcher just needs the AR 15 or the M16 lower receiver, BCG, and a charging handle to get into operational mode. You can also attach the optics on the upper Picatinny rail to enjoy night time shooting but imagine the fun when shooting without the optics in low light, quite the thrill.
It operates with a gas-ported barrel and a small tube capped from the bottom that prevents the live bullets from loading. When the blanks are fired, enormous gases are released from the vent holes around the small tube into the cannon tube to push any projectile of your choice except the actual bullets. It launches at a distance of 105 yards when shot at an optimum angle with the right spec blanks.
This can launcher launches anything from
