A Challenge of Sorts

Unread postAuthor: chisox21 » Fri Apr 25, 2008 10:54 am

I myself am not at all an experience spudder, simply in the learning stages, but last night i came up with a crazy idea. To keep it short and sweet, i pondered whether it would be possible to recreate and assault rifle with an underslung grenade launcher--spud style. The rifle itself would be a BBMG, and for the underslung g. launcher i thought wouldnt have to be too powerful, only 20 30 yards, it would be more for the cool look. The launcher would simply be either a combustion or pneumatic, whichever coudl lay dormant and loaded for a while. I figured with some of the things you guys can do, some may want to tackle the project. Maybe some feedback if you thought this feat possible.

I think it is very possible, I have even thought about it a few times myself.

The idea that I had for something similar to this was an airsoft BBMG with a wooden "frame" that looked like an assault rifle, then a coaxial pneumatic "grenade launcher" mounted under the barrel. The only reason I didn't attempt to make one was that it was too hard to make the frame for the BBMG.

Sounds interesting, you could even go portable CO2 for the BBMG and metered propane for the grenade launcher so you don't have to bother over a valve and diverting the CO2.
