Grenade Launcher- Meat Tenderizer

Unread postAuthor: Davidvaini » Thu Dec 04, 2008 11:59 am

Hey guys I decided to make a few things yesterday. One of these things was a quick and easy grenade launcher to pull out.. I wanted something that had a handle on the side to give it a sten machine gun feel.

I couldnt decide wether or not to make it for 3/4" shells or for 1.25" shells.. The 1.25" shells could be armed with nerf balls for vehicles in an airsoft match while the smaller shells are more compact and easier to carry around. So I made a snap system where the handle snaps into the side of either a 1.25" shell or a 1.25" tube to fire 3/4" shells.

I decided to name it the meat tenderizer because of the handle design.

That's a sweet looking gun there David- nice work.

Just a side note- how much snow do you have up by you?

I pull the trigger... lol

As far as how much snow.. I just finished shoveling.. a few inches.. nothing major yet.... but enough to cover the ground.

Interesting fact:

I didn't use any epoxy in this build.. sorry JSR. It is held together with pop rivets.

Haha, very funny. What kind of trigger system did you use? i.e. co2 inflator, disk breaking system, etc.

looks to me like one of his co2 inflators using his burst disk cartridges.

David- you wouldn't believe the snow we got down here- i'm not sure how much, but at least 10 inches or so

Ya know, these burst disk cartridges are starting to give me some ideas.

None of them exactly the same, but still...

Where's my KY?

I see that it is muzzle-loading. Is there any chance a future model will have a hinge action for grenades?

Well Imortal my friend, Has already made a prototype hinge action that works very well. I guess you will just have to wait for him to post it.
