M203 PB Grenade

Unread postAuthor: noname » Wed Sep 20, 2006 6:43 pm

This wouldn't be too hard to make, and everyone is trying to think of an M203 type paint grenade, so here's my idea. You'd have to use butane or something as the gas power because the valves you use to fill lighters and butane pwered things are so small.
When launched, it would just fly until it hit something, which would pop the burst disk with the sharp screw or nail in the front. This would make gas push the paint backwards, hard, which would break a thin layer, paper or saran wrap and shoot the paint out the holes.

It looks like it would work. Two things im wondering about though.
1. The saran wrap. I don't think that will perform well.
2. When you hit the burst disk it moves out of the way. Then you just have the gas escaping through the holes without the paint. You should have a burst disk followed by a piston that pushes the paint out.

It would get too big using a piston to push the paint out. I'd just hot glue or put little stoppers behind the burst disk. And I used saran wrap as an example because it's thin but can make little crappy seals under no pressure. I would probably stretch it to the point of about to break, then put it in.

Just make it and see if it works. I still think a piston would make it better. You wouldnt have to make a piston out of pvc just like a milk cap or somthin. Thats not that big.

Ok, if this is going to be used will it be shot strait up like a mortar or shot dirrectly at forts of something? If it where to be shot strait up and came down on someones head wouldnt it injure them? will it be a soft nosed grenade like half of a nerf ball glued to the front?

Incorporate a c02 powerlet in the design, on impact it is pierced and pressurizes the grenade until it bursts.
make the body out of an asswipe tube and duct tape, so that there is no shrapnel.
the c02 burst will actually throw paint well, unlike these piston or burst disk ideas.
by pushing paint through holes in the hull simply with impact pressure, it will only squeeze the paint out, not splatter it all over the place.
a successful paint grenade needs substantial, internally generated pressure to
work, anything else is a waste of time.
