Paintball Grenade Launcher

Unread postAuthor: TYRONEEZEKIEL » Sat Feb 16, 2008 12:05 pm

DOES ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA HOW TO MAKE A DEVICE THAT CAN LAUNCH AN F-BOMB OR SIMILAR STYLE PAINTBALL GRENADES.

THE 3 MAN WATERBALLOON LAUNCHER DIDNT WORK TOO WELL.

You can make one easy enough by using ideas from this site as long as you fit the ammo to the barrel.......Most fields wont allow you to use grenades as ammo for a launcher however as they are too heavy and can knock a paintball mask off during play....Prefered ammo is sabot'ed paintball grapeshot or foam rockets for LAW's....

Don't type in all capital letters. It makes your post annoying to read, and is quite unnecessary. I am sure if you gave the diameter of the projectile which you intend to use, a solution to your problem could be conjured up quite easily.

LET ME HELP YOU!!!

No field will allow you to build a launcher for F-bomb sized grenades.Just isn't going to happen.Way too much insurance issues.Now if you want to build a grenade launcher for scepter sized grenades than that is entirely possible and encouraged.

I suggest you use the search function on this site or do some digging around spec ops or the Tippy OG forums, maybe even Underground modshop's forum as well.


To get you an idea here is mine that I made:

Hmmm i think that no one should help him if he isnt going to put the effort into researching a making a safe cannon. Why should we spoon feed you? We dont usally do it to other newbies why him? i could understand if he researched and didnt understand somethink.

Normally I'd say be on your own.In this case thought there is a common misconception in paintball that you CAN launch a big boy grenade.Unfortunately that only holds true until you show up at the field.I see no issue in showing him what others had done.I would've appreciated it if someone showed me a couple of designs when I started making mine own.Granted that probably would have prompted me to copy someone else's design and not create my own.So I do get your point.
