TAG Innovation's revolutionary range of grenades and launchers for training and tactical war games, have made a big impact in the airsoft community and are favoured by Mil-Sim players. The Reaper projectile is made from 'trauma-safe' lightweight polyurethane foam and is unbelievably accurate thanks to its spinning movement during flight. This spinning stabilizes the grenade until initiation. Upon detonation the projectile will explode, fragmenting the grenade and it's 20rds BB payload and producing minimal flash and a VERY loud bang. They are truly awesome. Scary, but awesome! What makes the Reaper different to the Archangel is the Archangel detonates on impact, whereas the Reaper donates 3 seconds after launch. Ideal as a distraction device or in environments where impact can't be guaranteed. This starter kit comes with eight Reaper projectiles and one required Shell Launcher. To send one of these bad boys flying you use the Shell Launcher in conjunction with your regular airsoft grenade launcher. The Shell Launcher is primed with Gas or CO2 which impressively propels the Reaper towards its target. When the launcher strikes the projectile the fuse is activated, giving 3 seconds before detonation.
The launcher is designed for use with CO2 but work brilliantly on green gas too, due to the oversized chamber valve and internal porting on the aluminium base. They don't use a lot of gas at all and are quite amazing just dry-firing them. The bang is VERY loud! The extruded composite plastic is very tough, in fact it's made from made of extremely durable aviation polymer. They do however require maintenance from time to time just as any other gas grenade and it's good practice to add a squirt of silicone oil in the gas filler valve every now and then.
