airsoft spring impact bomb

Unread postAuthor: iknowmy3tables » Mon May 21, 2007 2:27 pm

so I got an idea for a spring powered impact bomb
it uses a clothes pin with the fulcrum enlarged with a dowel so the handles have more movement when flinging bbs, a rubber band strengthens the spring power, and the thing is held open with 1/2" cpvc that snaps off on impact.
and of course I made a prototype yes it's crude, ugly yeah, hideous maybe, but its still a piece of crap

the clicking is my brother playing halo, you can't see the launched bbs very well but you can see how they scatted when i go to clean up with the camera still on.

what the hell is that?

im just kidding, simple and effective, i like it, but maybe it would be more powerful if you removed the spring in the clip it's self.

i see how it works now, thanks.

Yea I agree, my first thought was remove the spring in the clip. Though I don't quite understand how it's impact-triggered.

that spring is only made to push together those two points it acully adapts to the newer targer fulcrum, so the clothes pin is still usable even if I have a dowel in their
Image if you still aren't convinced I'll remove the rubber band, or you can try it yourself. I'm doing this to avoid silly argument
and like I said the momentom of the clip makes it go fowrdad and off the pipe when the cardboard tube hits the target
