One of the things I really liked about the M320 was the double action trigger. Which means if you have a misfire you can simply pull the trigger again. No need to cycle the breech to reset the firing pin. Much safer.
I see your point. It made me think that from our perspective we don't need a dedicated anti tank component as much as the "other side" does, simply because American soldiers are unlikely to encounter armor in their line of work in the Middle East. The lighter 40 MM grenade launcher is sufficient for the task at hand.
The problem with having a dedicated grenadier is that they aren't much use for the majority of firefights.
