Introduction: Airsoft Claymore Type Thing.

Picture of Airsoft Claymore Type Thing.

This is a claymore thing that blows up and sprays airsoft BB's everywhere.

Step 1: You Will Need.....

Picture of You Will Need.....

-Airsoft BBs
-Skewer stick
-Masking Tape

Step 2: The Body

Picture of The Body

First, take the skewer stick and tape the firecracker to it. Don't put too much tape on it, or it will weaken the blast.

Step 3: Roll the BB's

Picture of Roll the BB's

Take the BB's and roll them on a piece of masking tape about 2-3 inches.

Step 4: Attach the BB's to the Stick

It should look like this.

After you're done, light it up and run. This is good for sneaking up on people and lighting it up when they don't see you. Constructive critisism is wanted.

more like a german steilhandgranate, or "potato masher" grenade.

try putting it lower on the stick. Then tape 4 matches to the stick (make sure the heads are touching the fuse, try putting it a little lower than right on the top of the fuse). Next take the two strikers from the box and place them on the matches. Then wrap them to the matches with a rubber band, not too tight, not too loose. Somehow tie a fishing line to the strikers and tie it too something so when someone trips it he ignites the matches, igniting the fuse. Hope I complicatedly helped.

thats not a claymore thats a gernade on a stick try adding a trip wire to start it that would make it a lot better

jggammer (author)2010-07-31

not firecracker that is a spinner is spins around

eulaliaaaa! (author)jggammer2010-08-06

No, that's is a firecracker. It probably just is the same color as the spinner.

1spartan95 (author)2009-04-07

use a bottle rocket and shoot it out of a tube as an rpg

stg.badass (author)1spartan952010-07-28

well your going to get mauled in a airsoft war if you do that buy a airsoft gun

XWXAXDXEX (author)1spartan952010-01-22

that would take like three, bottle rockets are
rather weak and barely carry thier own weight.

ac1D (author)2008-11-19

is not a claymore something wich blow when someone walk by? I think its more like a grenadde. tough you could make a claymore version ussing a pulling firework(google d0rk: pulling firecracker). generally they cost about $0.75 for 2-3 box of 12. its cheap!

jpguitardude (author)ac1D2008-11-20

That's why I named it the claymore type thing. And you don't throw it like a grenade, the stick is for mounting it on the ground.

XWXAXDXEX (author)jpguitardude2010-01-22

lol there's no mounting. firevrackers will blowup on ur fingers, you cant mount it bit having doublesided take like a sticky would be good.

stepherwin (author)2009-01-08

I don't play airsoft but here's an idea for your claymore. Goto a hobby store and get a packet of model rocket engine igniters. (small pieces of wire bent in half with chemicals on the middle part.) get yourself some cheap insulated wire (double for small speakers) Also going to need a battery (big box type --preferably with spring terminals) tape and alligator clips.

now that you've got the stuff here's how to put it together.

1. build your claymore as normal.
2. tape the igniter to the fuse. ( this takes know-how...the tip of igniter w/chemicals needs to be in contact with the fuse BUT not the tape and the two halfs of the igniter must remain separate. so...
A. take tape and wrap it around the middle of one of the halfs (insulates it ) then lay ingniter on the fuse and tape to fuse (MAKE SURE TO LEAVE THE TIP OF IGNITER FREE OF TAPE AND BOTH ENDS OF THE IGNITER FREE OF TAPE AS WELL)
B. Alligator clips attach to ends of the igniter and run the wire out probably no more than 20-30ft..DEPENDS UPON BATTERY STRENGTH

3. in the field
A. set your claymore and unroll your wire.
B. attach one end of your wire to battery terminal
C. wait for target
D. when ready connect other wire to other terminal (which completes the electric circuit and will cause the igniter to combust. This lights the fuse of the claymore and BANG)

*** putting this together and making it work takes a bit of experience so I suggest you practice before you play. figure out how to best wire the fuse so that it works everytime. also get to know how long the wire can be and carry the charge from the battery. (the strength of the battery makes a difference too...weak battery's won't set off the igniter from the same distance that a fully charged on will.

hope it helps have fun

XWXAXDXEX (author)stepherwin2010-01-22

LOL very good, you could also have a model rocket all put together and have it angeled at a gun on the ground and have the detanatoyr with you and shoot the rocket at them! a rocket to the gut wont feel too good huh?

aseaheru (author)stepherwin2009-03-30

coolness, thats how they do it, but more bbs and diff items

avwos (author)stepherwin2009-01-09

You had me at rocket engine :)

then (author)2009-04-02

could you use an m-500 with a gaillion BBs? Now that would be interesting.

XWXAXDXEX (author)then2010-01-22

m5000 with bbs is devastating

gluegun (author)2009-04-09

this is how you make a punji trap,you dig a hole then put sticks that are sharp and stick up and then put grass over it then wait for people to step in it

XWXAXDXEX (author)gluegun2010-01-22

You're trying to have fun, not kill them!!!!

HisDivineShadow (author)2008-11-21

Neat, though if you were tech savy, you could make a rubber cord attatch one end to the bomb, and the other to the wall across from it (or a tree) Then you are going to have to rig up a system for when the cord is pulled (maybe a flint or something) the fuse is ignited and 's'plodes you're enemies!!! >:) MUAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is what ive been working on. I've got the tripwire, i just need an igniter.

Colonel88 (author)jpguitardude2009-11-04

I picked up a nice, remote garage door opener for like $4 at Radioshack, although i think it was on sale. There are 3 wires 1 for antenna and 2 for relay contacts. There is a DC jack for power too, but you could prob hook up a huge lantern battery up. Then, you just have to hook up some wire that heats up really quickly, like that thin wire in model rocket engines and there you go. a cheap detonator for under 12$ (aproxx)

Well... just get some small flint and attatch the tripwire (so that it may be pulled out) then put something for friction next to the flint in the bomb then when someone runs by they pull the flint causing sparks igniting the fuse and detonating the bomb... The only problem is that uncareful placement could lead to premature detonation... Or if you are in a game in the woods a few birds may be hurt if you are the enviromentalist (democrat XD) type or if you dont care then they are wasting youre bahm....

The Flint is kind of inaccurate, it could mess up and not work, and i only have one chance. Oh well, thanks for the ideas. If there's anything else you can think of, please tell me.

2 things If you come by a triggered but undetonated mine you could reset it 2 You could use a spring and the string pulls that you and a copper rod attached to a small battery would move forwards and then that would activate a small sparker for a lighter or something... Though that is a little far to go for airsoft unless you are a millionaire...

Hahaha yeah, just a little. But good thinking.

bugmenot (author)jpguitardude2008-12-08

specopps117, nice ideas. The last one is probably best reserved for, like you said, a millionaire. Or someone trying to be the Ted Kaczynski of airsoft...

HisDivineShadow (author)bugmenot2008-12-09

yeah,... but if I was a millionaire forget the bbs! I would put silly putty in it with a more powerful explosive(nonlethal) and stick every one *switches to meniacle British accent* EVERYWHERE!!!!! muahahahahah! >:)

ya this could work if you got one of those pull chain light thingys and rig up a 9 volt to it and i think you can figure out the rest (hint: model rocket ingine igniters wont work, you either gotta build youre own or mod them) pluss i got instructables coming soon on:
remote detonator
pressure detonator
tripwire detonator
ALL PYROTECHNIC!!! and can be used with my (pyrotechnic)land mine:

a remote detonarot... Gee that will be inexpensive.... Unless u use a quick burn fuse in which case a single spark willblow you to kingdom come...

Colonel88 (author)2009-11-04

1. Make one of these, but tape a match next to the fuse securely.
2. Cut off the striking paper and bend it in half.
3. Slide a ring onto the center of the bend of the striking paper.
4. Wrap the striking paper+ring around the match with a rubberband.
5. Tripwire to the ring...
6. BOOM.

piedoom0 (author)2009-10-30

It is more of a Hand Grenade, not exactly a claymore-
ya know what would be cool?  Get a rocked kit,  and hook it up to this

pyromaniac2 (author)2009-02-23

were do u buy m-80s or the fireworks u used?

Broncosguy24 (author)pyromaniac22009-05-15

those are blackcats. m-80s i think are to powerful for airsoft grenades. but anyway, if you live in a state where fireworks are legal, you can pick them up at a firework stand. but if you live in a place such as New York, like me, you have to smuggle them in. ask a friend if they have some.

Their not blackcats, if they were, they'd be black, with pictures of panthers; Their mighty mights

jpguitardude (author)pyromaniac22009-03-30

They weren't M-80's. I just used standard firecrackers. They're cheap around July 4th. The Black Cats are the most expensive, i just use generic and they work fine.

chopstx (author)jpguitardude2009-06-10

i always use either m-98's or m-80's

TK$8Ball (author)pyromaniac22009-04-25

those dont look like m-80s im pretty sure there the kind i have there called hydro crackers powerful as all u know wht and water proof

Azor (author)2009-08-07

Hi all, does anyone know where I can buy spark wire ( or something or the sort ) for cheap? Or at all?

tomman (author)2009-05-28

that is a bomb on a stick not a clamore

gluegun (author)2009-04-09

for a rocket lancher or a rpg why not get a tube thats plastic and put a firecracker tied to a bottle rocket and get someone behind you to put a lighter or fire on the firecraker and it will shoot far and when the firecracker its the ground it will explod because of the bottle rocket

clayball97 (author)2009-04-02

can i have a video too that would be awesome

happybirthday (author)2009-03-10

This is pretty cool! My friend dint know what it was and it blew up in his face!
