      Yes, the M79 did shoot rocket propelled grenades. To the casual
      observer, it looked a bit like a sawed-off shotgun, but it only
      handled grenades. The M79 was eventually superseded by the M203,
      which was fit to the base of an M-16 rifle. It was, however a
      launcher of rocket-propelled grenades. There are some grenades
      that can be launched from an ordinary rifle. They are fitted
      with a rod, and a blank cartridge provides the force to launch
      them. For more information about the M79, check out
