It is the M79 40mm grenade launcher, from the United States. linky
There was also the RG-6/6G30 40mm grenade launcher (Russia) which was used to launch tear gas grenades. linky

Possibly, or it could be easier to reload that way. I don't know.

the stock "looks" like its upside down.. because this gives your hand a better place to hold the weapon (firing hand) if you have ever shot one of these ( i have ) you would know that....
1. you do not shoulder fire this unless the target is really close..
2. you can only shoulder fire this at a target no closer than 18m becasue the round does not arm until it spins for the distance of 18m.
3. However you can shoot your enemy with smaller rounds such as buckshot and the little wire rounds.. the above and below is for HE rounds
4. this is a long range weapon that is ment for arching the round to its target.. kinda like throwing a baseball from home plate to the outfield.. "you obviously are not gonna throw it straight" unless your superman.. so with that being said.. you arch it..

Hope this helps.

notice neither men.. in the army (how to use) book are truly shoulder firing this weapon.. they are letting the ground take the kick from it.. or letting the rifle pass under the shoulder and lets the recoil slide back instead of it going in the shoulder..

Only idiots.. and numbnuts shoot from the shoulder.. (because they dont care about arthuritis later in their future.)

Actually he is using it to aim in that picture. Note the caption.


Explanation of marked-sling method from http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/ ... 2331_6.htm
Marked-Sling Method. To use this method, the grenadier must--

(1) Loosen the sling, assume a kneeling position, and place the forward foot in the sling.

(2) Ensure the sling is taut and vertical between the front sling swivel and the boot. If not, the rounds will impact at a greater range than desired. To check this, tie one end of a string or thread to a weight, such as a cartridge case, and tie the other to the sling swivel. Let it hang freely, and align the edge of the sling with it to ensure the sling is vertical.

(3) Fire several rounds to determine the desired range.

(4) Where the sling is held to the ground by the foot, mark the sling with colored tape, paint, ink, or whatever is available. Mark the position of the buckles so that, if either is moved, the grenadier can return them to their original positions and be assured of constant range accuracy.

(5) If the sling gets wet, it may stretch or shrink, indirectly causing the rounds to impact closer or farther than desired.
