Restore the M72 Series LAW to Carrying Configuration

If the launcher is prepared to fire, but then is not fired, it should be returned to the carrying configuration by reversing the preparation procedure.

If the launcher is prepared to fire, but then is not fired, it should be returned to the carrying configuration by reversing the preparation procedure. After the launcher has been prepared for firing, it is no longer watertight. Therefore, when carrying the launcher, sling it over either shoulder with the muzzle (forward) end down. Only the rocket and rocket motor ignition system are waterproof.

  • Return the trigger arming handle to the SAFE position.
  • Remove the launcher from your shoulder, depress the barrel detent, collapse the launcher tube, and guide the front and rear sights into position.
  • Close the rear cover, replace the cover pull pin, and replace the sling assembly.

WARNING: To prevent injury, remove your thumb from the detent after collapsing the launcher 1/2 to 1 inch.
