No, but these sure were fun to shoot. The 66mm LAW was capable of excellent accuracy, given practice:

I'm kinda jealous.  They never let the medical guys (like me) train on any of the fun stuff.

Always were Rather scarce, heard there were a handful at the last SAR in the $100 odd range.

 

I have debated having the nose cones and tail fin assms 3D printed up with a firing block, everything sized to use A or B series Estes engines in a hard board tube.

Years ago Shooters Equipment Supply offered an all metal reloadable primer block and flash tube for the LAW.

As long as one keeps the bursting head under 1/4 ounce of M80 type flash compound the resulting simulator would remain non NFA.

 

The originals used steel tubing and were rather weighty
