I personally have always had stellar experiences with KA products. As for which one, it depends on what you want to do with it... The KA one is a large slug, whereas the G&P one is likes a shotgun shell. I don't know about the KA grenade, but many grenades of that type seem to have better range than the shotgun shell type. At the same time however, you have to go retrieve the slug every time you fire... Overall, I think thing the G&P one is better, simply due to it's type...

If that is the exact same thing as this:

I used to own quite a few G&P rubber slug 40mm shells. almost looked like the one linked. The old ones used to come with the fake cosmetic head and a second rubber head, you' have the option of shooting the rubber head or normal BB's... and if you want, the metal head (not advised. sounds cool, but it actually barely flys out). I've used some of the KA's and all work to the same effect as the G&P. G&P's just look better. However with the new G&P shells (single pack and triple packs), it seems they are not supplied with the rubber heads anymore :(

Old post but I'll reply anyway....

Depends what you want to use your launcher for. If you're going to use it in close to mid-quarters, then I'd say get the shotgun round. The range isn't the best on any round like this, but they will dominate in CQB situations. I have two Madbull M433's and they are very reliable and the range is decent.

As for the actual slugs, well, you might be UNDERESTIMATING them. They are insanely powerful and shouldn't be used at all in CQB. I highly reccomend them, but you'd better either be shooting at enemy vehicles or players who are pretty far away. If you do buy, GET EXTRA rubber heads for them. While the shells are solid, the heads tend to break after heavy use, and are easy to lose. I'm going to buy more and paint them orange. Just buy extras, they're cheap and you get five in one pack.

My only complaint about the slugs is that the primer button is slightly indented. This means it is sometimes one hell of a trigger pull with these (at least with an M79), but that only gives you a little more time to aim a-laugh.gif .
