my new little toy

Unread postAuthor: colty-bear » Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:39 pm

My pressure activated co2 paintball landmine
I am very impressed with it's distance
It shoots about 20ft in the air
you notice its only half camo but it will be buried sub-surface so i did not see the point.

the pull pin is a nice realistic touch too

Nice mine, I might work on making the surface area on top so you would have a good chance of it actually being stepped on in a game.

hey thanx man that means alot i cant take all the credit
another guy made the diagram i just put it into action

this thing is awsome ill have to make a vid when i get more co2 cartridges
i love this thing although it was not so easy to build it was tough to get nail in right place and epoxy the tube symmetrical over it

it works really really good! It owns during paintball play its completely invisible in 2 ft grass

i live out of town and i had a party and planted it outside in the sand one of my friends went out to take a leak and he stepped on it! it was filled with water and it scared the crap out of him got his head torso and legs soaking wet

it was so funny

Nice pun :D
Although it was probably unintentional. I might make one similar to it.

Wow, I drew up some plans to make a pressure activated mine as well but I haden't had the time to actually make it. I also made some plans for a trip mine too. When I get back to my workshop I'll see what I can do to make one!

Ok looking at your design I've got some ideas to modify yours for trip wire and directional shooting that can shoot bbs. Building it next weekend probably.

Yea i bought one three years back, and made ten more. Replace the top of the plunger with a 2inch to 1/2 reducer. Will make the trigger surface area much bigger.

I stopped using mines because you have to fill bury and they might get stepped on. Trip wire mines are much easier for set up, and a trip line makes a better trigger.
