Question "Briton MP-37" 37mm magazine-fed anti-riot launcher.

Hello, everybody.

In an article of the latest issue of DIANA ARMI, the gun magazine I contribute to, there was an article about less-than-lethal weapons. In the part dedicated to the artifact launchers, several products were mentioned, including a British-made 37mm magazine-fed weapon (using 3-rounds or 7-rounds mags), called the "Briton" MP-37 launcher; allegedly made by TESTON ENGINEERING, Ltd.
No other informations. Nor I have been able to find other stuff on the web. Has anybody any better informations? THNX in advance as usual!

Do you think this ones exist, i mean produced & used in such a scale that you would not call it a prototype? Besides the military & riflemounted launchers i thought the Brits only used Kilgore & Arwen?
