Strike Industries provides the following details of the launcher:

FORE! Based on the Strike Industries OPPRESSOR blast shield muzzle device which aids in redirecting blast and sound, this SI OPPRESSOR Golf Ball Launcher also uses the quick detach PATENTED Strike Rapid Engage Mount (SREM) system mount.

Using blanks, golf balls can be launched 100s of yards, of course in a safe direction. Depending on the various golf ball, golf ball fit, weapon and blank used, you can see launch golf balls 500+ yards.

Point to just about any angle without the ball falling out as the tapered cone/cup and large O-ring is designed to fit most golf balls on the market. Constructed of a steel SREM base with a 7075-T6 aluminum body, this SI OPPRESSOR Golf Ball Launcher attaches (and detaches) in seconds propelling golf balls down range with velocity and distance. You can also use this SI OPPRESSOR device as a blast shield and/or concussion reducing device with live ammo WITHOUT a golf ball inserted.

The Oppressor mounts directly to your gun and includes an O-ring that fits most standard golf balls. Golf balls are then fired by using blanks. The manufacturer claims the balls can be launched at distances up to around 500 yards. Why? Because we can.
