Grenades for grenade launchers

I was watching the military channel, and I saw the M32 grenade launcher. I really want to build something like it with knex. But here's the problem: I have yet to find a grenade that can fit in some sort of barrel. I'd use Carlz's grenade, but the rubberbands on the outside of it would GREATLY decrease the range. We need to make a smooth grenade, any ideas?

here it is

I can't get the d@mn thing together! How do you do it?
It takes alot of precision to do it properly
travw (author)  Fred the Penguin4 years ago
Yeah, I still haven't gotten it. That'd probably be the major flaw with it, now that I think about it.
You sorta haveto use your nails to push up the green rod while attaching the second Y clip, It takes practice
travw (author)  Fred the Penguin4 years ago
Yeah, I still can't do it. I have really short nails...
You can use a pencil too (i think)

I'm too frustrated. =P
well then you FAIL, and get an F
travw (author)  Fred the Penguin4 years ago
No, I PHALE, and get a P.
knex_lover, why so fail?
Your link is invalid, stoopid slap.

It's meant to be.....LOSER BOW IS NOT AMUSED!

I tried something similar when trying to make a shotgun round for the oodassault. The trouble is that it's very hard to find exactly what kind of connection gives you the result you're looking for. Too weak and it turns into a shotgun. Too strong and you get a slug. Good luck trying to find one that explodes on impact. It would make a nice addition to knex guns.
this thing only explodes on impact, the problem is a pin impact sets it off, I have made it work in a tr8 though, I attached a orange connector with a white rod to it. It sorta worked
Lol yeah say hello to my original idea for a shotgun shell for my Oodassault. I put the orange connectors + white rods on like oodammo and then used a white rod, blue spacers, and a black hand closing off the other end. The idea was you could have a quick loading, repeating shotgun but the shells didn't work perfectly. I mean some may have been satisfied enough but sometimes not all the blue spacers came off. You had to rely on the chance that the connector dragged off the magazine and in the air while the blue spacers would continue to keep going. Maybe it would work by using a stopper device and then disposing the orange connector and white rods like a shell so only the blue spacers keep going. Oops sorry for babbling on about that.

I did that, but with a blue rod on the ram end, then shot it from my single shot rifle, and it worked like a charm.
ah hu....

I'll try to get something to work. =)

You might be able to use mine, but leave the rod in.
travw (author)  chopstx4 years ago
Eh, maybe.

Just an idea........

I had an idea for one, a green rod with 4 blue spacers on it, between 2 y clips, I tried it but it was just far to flimsy, prehaps you can make it work?
travw (author)  Fred the Penguin4 years ago
It uses no bands.....
travw (author)  Fred the Penguin4 years ago
Oh, I see. I don't think it'd even go off then...
if it hits something hard it does go off, but it has to hit something hard, dropping it onto carpet will not set it off

Gotcha

I am getting a pic up now, along with a clip of the loser bow's firing system

could u use mine?

No. Plus, I want more than a throw-it-and-it-falls-apart grenade.
