The CZ 805 G1 is a multi-purpose grenade launcher in 40x46 cal. and is a result of the development concentrated on the next generation of service weapons made by Česká zbrojovka a.s., Uherský Brod.
It is a light weapon designed for destroying armoured targets, personnel and military equipment located in an unenclosed ground or field shelters. The CZ 805 G1 can safely fire a wide variety of modern standard grenades of 40x46 cal. such as: cumulative, armour-piercing, fragmentation and special types (thermo-baric, smoke, illuminating, incendiary, chemical and others). The CZ 805 G1 is also suitable for non-lethal ammunition use.
The weapon excels in simple and reliable construction, loading and extraction of the fired cartridge is carried out from the rear, with the barrel tilted to the side. This solution has the advantage to use a wider variety of grenades, as the length is no limit. The direction of the tilting of the barrel is adjustable, which allows adapting the grenade launcher to both a right-handed and a left-handed user. The trigger guard can be turned to the left or right by 90° to facilitate shooting in gloves.
Safety features are made of transversely shifted manual safety of the trigger and automatic firing pin block. The CZ 805 G1 grenade launcher can be used either separately as a standalone or as underslung weapon of the assault rifle. When used separately the grenade launcher is mounted to the bottom MIL-STD-1913 accessory rail.
