The Army is in the market for an improved stun grenade grenade that would subdue targets by blasting them with a shower of high-velocity rubber pellets.

The new grenade -- called the XM104 Non-Lethal Bursting Grenade -- looks like the re-branded version of the "Non Lethal Blunt Trauma Hand Grenade," a concept that was solicited last year by the Army's Picatinny Arsenal late last year, but then withdrawn. The stinger grenade would be an alternative to the "flash bang," which incapacitates with a blinding flash and noise.
