I'm a sucker for 40mm launchers in any form, and it's been a good long while since I've had my hands on a true M203 style unit. DBoys has had their 3-in-1 launcher out for a while now, but I hadn't seen a lot of information out about it, so I decided the time was right for a formal review of it. This launcher isn't perfect, but it's a great starting place, and I will discuss all of the various aspects of it in this review!
I obtained this launcher through Airsplat currently priced at $89.99. For my buildup that you'll see later on in the review, I also ordered the CA low profile front mount. After UPS thoroughly screwed up shipping a simple package from California to Utah (through no fault of Airsplat), I received the launcher with no apparent damage. Airsplat was very helpful in tracking down the lost package, so they handled a crappy situation by UPS very well!
In airsoft, an M203, or any 40mm launcher really, basically serves as a stylish device to hold an M203 shell and facilitate it's launching using a basic trigger activated push-button system. Yes, you can generally fire a 40mm shell by holding it and pushing the button on the back, but an M203 looks more realistic and makes operation much easier. The DBoys 3-in-1 M203 is so named due to its inclusion of three separate mounting systems; 20mm RIS, TM style barrel/delta ring, and G&P/real steel type delta ring. This gives you the ability to mount this thing on pretty much any gun you want, with only minor alterations needed in some cases.
DBoys has everything packaged up in a sturdy cardboard box with a sticker indicating which M203 is inside. DBoys has both short and long versions available, and the one I am reviewing today is the long version.
Along with the full metal launcher, DBoys includes the aforementioned various rear mounts, as well as a large QD front mount. For my specific buildup, I ditched the front mount for the much smaller CA mount, which was necessary for mounting under the RIS on my gun.

The DBoys M203 can be considered a full metal replica, as everything that is metal on a real M203 is metal on this replica. The only polymer part is the ribbed handguard, with everythin
