Personal Message from CEO Barry Lamperd:

To all of our valued law enforcement customers and associates, I would
like to show you our master piece of engineering; The Lamperd Less
Lethal Double Action Hand Held Launcher, available in 37mm and 40mm.
Since 1969 we have never developed a launcher so amazing as this new
product. The balance and speed of loading is absolutely incredible,
especially for a device this small. Please review the materials below
including demonstration videos showing how unmatched this latest
innovation is vs. anything else available anywhere in the world today.
This is a milestone achievement which we are sure will greatly benefit
users in public order and crisis situations.
New Double Action Launchers are available in 37mm and 40mm versions (40mm shown here). In the center is our latest introduction, a Hand Held Launcher with a Forward Grip for extra control and stability.

Custom Holster for our Hand-Held Double Action Launcher, designed for use on the thigh left or right, and also on a sling that fits in front of the officer’s vest.

Lamperd Less Lethal introduced new Double Action versions of its proven 37mm and 40mm Hand-Held Less Lethal Launchers. These models are being immediately added to the Lamperd product line which also still includes our 37mm and 40mm Double Action Rifle Less Lethal Launchers. Custom designed nylon holsters are also available. To the best of our knowledge, the new Lamperd 37mm and 40mm Double Action Hand-Held Launchers are the only ones of their kind available on the market, anywhere in the world.

Double Action Advantages

The advantages of Double Action are that there is no hammer to cock, only the trigger to pull. This type is faster loading and easier to control which can make all the difference in a crisis situation when seconds count. Another significant advantage of the Double Action Less Lethal Launcher is long effective range of at least 75 feet. Like previous Lamperd Launchers, the new models can also employ 12 gauge adapters to increase versatility and allow a wide range of ammunition options for both tactical and training purposes.

The demonstration videos presented here show how Lamperd Double Action Hand-Held Launchers can provide a rapid, accurate and long range options for riot and crowd control.




With engineering innovations that have made Lamperd Less Lethal a leader in the force technology world. Lamperd Less Lethal is pleased to announce its new 5 plus 1 shot 37 mm Less Lethal Multi Launcher and the 40 mm Distraction Device Launcher. These new pump action launchers offer superior adaption for the modern and ever changing needs of Police, Military and Government Security Forces.

The launcher can be carried on the chest, back, thigh or anywhere that you need it. The launcher weighs only 4.7 pounds, compare that to other systems weighing in between 9 to 15 pounds! That’s a significant weight savings with the average person’s stride length being approximately 2.5 feet long. If your personnel are saddled with a fifteen pound launcher system and need to walk 100 meters (328 feet) that’s a total carry weight of 4920 pounds not including additional gear!

Compared to the Lamperd Launcher that fits a user ergonomically and saves over 3378 pounds of carry weight! Plus, with Lamperd’s slim line design of 2.5 inches in width, navigating becomes less of a problem and the chances of getting the device hooked on something is greatly reduced. The tactical advantages and benefits of Lamperd’s 5 plus 1 shot launcher are clear and obvious. What are you waiting for? Get the best of the rest!


New AR-15 Adjustable Stock and A2 Grip for the Lamperd 40mm SL Launcher.

This Adjustable Stock and A2 grip attachment option is designed to offer more versatility with only cosmetic changes to fit our standard 40mm SL Launcher.

The Adjustable Stock and A2 Grip do not change the functionality of the weapon in any way.

12 Gauge Adapter for 37mm Launchers


Lamperd offers this option of a 12 Gauge Adapter for 37mm Launchers as a more affordable alternative to the use of inert 37mm rounds for distraction or training purposes.

The Adapter also makes 37mm Launchers more versatile, giving them the ability to utilize various 12 Gauge munitions. The demonstration featured in this video uses a distraction round with enough powder to deliver a long range and forceful but still harmless effect. For the distraction role, this round produces a sound of 140 decibels.

Please Note:  If this distraction round is used with a 12 gauge shot gun, we recommend a cylinder bore 14 inch length barrel or less.
