40mm Replica Munitions
By GROG Copyright 2018 3LC Productions
Standard replica munitions are made using real aluminum casings correct to the munition being replicated. The projectile portion of the replica is made of a high quality two part plastic, from molds taken of actual military issue unfired projectiles. They are then painted and marked by hand. The ink used is the same as used in real munitions. Replicas are completely inert and contain no live primers or powders, and no explosives and cannot be made to fire in any way. Projectiles are solid plastic, and special paints are used to simulate metallic finishes.
All replica munitions are made to customer specs. No “stock” is kept, and each order is produced customer specific. Replicas are made using real 40mm LV casings (expended) or, in the case of specialized casings such as the M576 buckshot and M651 CS, they can be replicated from real stock. The replicas contain no live parts, and the projectile portion is solid polymer, professionally painted and marked.
Higher quality replicas using real aluminum bodies and ogives can be produced for additional cost. Inquire about replicas at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and styles.

Specialized round display boards
We can produce display boards with several types of 40mm HV and LV munitions for use as training aids, company specific displays, collector displays, and gifts. You specify the rounds you want in your display. Displays come in wooden display boxes, with glass front. The rounds pictured are now made using real 40mm casings, period specific markings, and using real ink and decals for accuracy. Display boards use replicas cut in half length-wise to show colors and markings.
Displays can be prepared using complete replicas also:
