Spike's Havoc/Kaos to DD?
im pondering the idea of making my Spike's launcher into a DD. i know how to fill out the Form 1. so basically, who machines 37mm barrels to 40mm barrels and how much would that cost? is there any special shipping restrictions associated with a 40mm barrel?
Can't help on the bore out but as far as shipping the barrel no. The receiver it mounts to(with the launchers trigger on it) is the firearm.
Any good machine shop can do the barrel mod for you. You want the Id of the barrel to be 1.650" at least. Most 40mm are 1.620 at the rotating bands. This will give you extra room when launching. Make sure you clean your smooth bore often, to remove debris. GROG
would it matter if the barrel has rifling or not? i know it would make the rounds more accurate, but would it change the inside dimensions?
The rifling would be tighter. I assume your machine shop would not be able to rifle your barrel interior. If you need the dimensions of the rifling, I can measure them for you. It's a 1 in 48 twist.
The largest portion of a 40mm LV round is the rotating bands. As long as you are a few thousanths over that, the round will go through your barrel fine. GROG
im still on fence about doing a Form 1 on my spike's..... but i like the idea of shooting a bunch of different stuff through the launcher and make it more versatile.
Not a problem Bro. Nothing beats AP stuff out of a launcher. Smoke, flares, and such only do so much for a guy! GROG
ok pardon my stupidity but, is it possible to shoot 37mm rounds out of a 40mm tube? would i have to use a small adapter? is there such a thing?
Yes. A couple wraps of electrical tape around the base to take up the "play" should work with some. Some 37mm rims are too thick to lock the 203 slide or 79 barrel into position. Quick answer, it depends on the rim of your casings. GROG

I'm interested in doing the same thing, except I don't know how to fill out the Form 1. Anybody know where I can find a sample (registering a launcher as a DD)?
If you have any questions on the form 1, drop me a PM or em to firstname.lastname@example.org and I can help you. GROG
My question is if you already own the Havoc can you apply to make it a DD so you can get the shotgun adapter?
