“From the first release of the FN 303 Less Lethal launcher in the early 2000s to the release of the Mk 2 variant today, FN has been at the forefront of the ever-changing landscape of policing, developing innovative solutions for officers and agencies,” said Charles Mills, Sr. Director, Law Enforcement and Federal Sales for FN America, in a statement. “Updates in the FN 303 Mk2 include fully adjustable sights for ease of zeroing, and upgrades to the air operating system that double the service life of the launcher and reduce required maintenance.”

According to the release, the new launcher is capable of accuracy out to 50-plus yards. It has adjustable flip up metal sights and a rail for red dot sights. An optimized operating system doubles the service life, allowing 5,000 firings before the first routine maintenance is required, the company says. Officers can also change projectiles quickly, while a clear magazine cover allows officers to verify the projectile type and remaining count.
