This video from Iraq shows a soldier firing at a target and it makes a hell of an impact when it hits. Can anyone tell me what weapon this is?

Looks like an M-16 with an m203 grenade launcher attatched.

That is the grenade launcher attached to the underside of his weapon. Others will give you full specs, but here is a simple illustration:

Edit: Don't worry about my link the pic in the post above is better.

Hey!

That soldier littered...he dropped the grenade shell casing on the sidewalk...I assume he will pick them all up later after the guy videotaping them edits in a couple non-combatants that were sleeping in that old car he was shooting at and gives the updated tape to Al Jezeera.

Just a question: A friend of mine in the swedish armed forces told me about the 203 and how good a weapon it was. He told me he could hit a window in 200m without problems. In the video link above we see a guy using ALOT of ammo to hit a car about 50 m away.. Now that gives me two options, my friend doesn't know what he's talking about or the guy in the video needs some serious training..
The latter seems possible when you look at how they perform in the video.. Slight hillbilly with too big gun warning!

Its the first option
..i wouldnt ask about guns from a dude from sweden
..but with good assault rifle you can hit a window from 300m...i have done that with a finnish rk-62.But with a grenade launcher?..il bet its a 1 to 100 shot to get it right..

I used the M-16 / 203 in the Army. The 203 is used a lot like a small mortar in many cases. However, with practice you can get very accurate to about 250m. I never tried shooting it through a window but I could hit a 5' spot at 150m so it's definitely possible.

My favorite round for the 203 was the "beehive" round. Worked like a 40mm shotgun shell. The old Vietnam vets used to tell us that the beehive is your best friend in jungle fighting. I think it would be an excellent room clearing round (if back blast didn't get ya).

Or you can go with option 3: your friend is correct, and the guy in the video doesn't need serious training. It's a lot easier to shoot further and more accurately in a calm and controlled environment. However, in a war zone, everyone's accuracy drops. It's always easier to be more accurate when the targets don't shoot back.

a good shot can hit a bulls eye with an iron site at 400 odds and with a scope 500+
also how can this guy be worried? no shooting,no bad guys hell the only thing his mate seems to be worrying about is if there is anyone around.
