37 MM launchers in MD

I am thinking about getting a 37 MM launcher to go under my ar 15 and have some questions buth dealing with the federal and MD regs.

I know they can be bought as a flair launcher with no paperwork. but if you want they can be registered as a D.D.with the ATF
How would I make it from a flair launcher in to a D.D.?

what is the MD laws regarding a 37 MM launcher?

I know anti personal rounds are a no-no with out it being a D.D., What rounds can be fired from it with out the paperwork

What rounds are legal to use in MD

Can the fireworks round be used in MD?
smoke rounds be used?

No special laws for a 37mm

Smoke and flare are pretty much what you are limited to, making it eunuch.

PM Midcounty for pricing

I know you can make up your own 37mm rounds, if legally licensed etc, etc...

But aren't most anti-personnel rounds 40mm? And isn't each "explosive" round considered a unique DD?

I have seen 12 ga shotshell and 38 special adaptors for it as well as other rounds for it, I would like to use the 12 ga so I will have to do the D.D. paperwork how do I go about doing it.

Gotta be careful with the firework rounds. all air based fireworks are illegal in MD without the right permits.

You create a DD the same way you create an SBR: engrave, fill out the form, pay your money, and wait a while.

Two things I'd point out about ammo:
1. Chalk rounds in a non-DD 37mm launcher are now a no-no.
2. Each high explosive round is its own DD. They are basically cost prohibitive to use.

As stated above, smoke and flares are pretty much it. The Spikes Havoc 37mm launchers are pretty popular:

The 9" side loading pictured, they also have a 12" rear loading.
