I did, however, get to shoot a grenade launcher: LMT’s M203 mounted on an L2H1PG frame assembly.

The frame assembly has a leaf sight mounted on top of a picatinny rail, and its function is to give you a way to shoot the M203 without having to first attach it to the underside of an M4 (i.e. the standard way to shoot it).
