SMI CA-32

The CA-32 Multiple-Shot Grenade Launcher (MSGL) is a relatively new weapon from SMI. The CA-32 is a multiple-shot weapon intended to increase the firepower of a Marine fireteam when compared to standard single-shot weaponmounted grenade launchers. It is a simple, rugged and reliable design based on the revolver principle to achieve its high rate of fire.

The CA-32 grenade launcher consists of a lightweight, progressively rifled steel barrel, sight assembly, frame with firing mechanism, springactuated revolving cylinder magazine and a collapsible stock. The stock is adjustable to suit the eye relief and firing stance of the user. The position of the front vertical grip is also adjustable for comfort. The forearm also has multiple rails that allows the user to mount whatever accessories he/she wishes to use. The weapon has a fire selector safety switch just above the rear pistol grip which can be operated from either side.

The MSGL is equipped with a collimating reflex sight which provides a single aiming dot. The shooter aims with both eyes open and the effect is to see the aiming spot superimposed on the target, both target and aiming dot being in sharp focus. The launcher is also fitted with an artificial boresight which can be used to zero the reflex sight. The reflex sight includes a radio luminous lamp which provides the spot contrast and which has a life of approximately 10 years.

The reflex sight was designed to be used to determine the range to the target and instantly adjusted.
