Introduction: Airsoft Claymore

A simple airsoft Claymore made from a party popper.

idea found here
http://www.geocities.com/usafcaptain/claymore.htm

EDIT: The link above is dead. Sorry.
And wow, Its been awhile since I posted this. Since then I've found that, even with corn instead of BBs, this doesn't work except in scenarios where the triggering of the device itself is considered a kill, at which point you might as well leave in the confetti. 

Step 1: Supplies

1.partty poppers
2.fishing line.
3.BBs
4.long thin object(like a knife or pencil)
5.nails.

Step 2: Make

CAREFULY remove the paper circle that holds the confetti in.
You will need that later.
Remove confetti.
Fill with BBs.
Replace paper circle.

Step 3: Setup

use the eyelet screws to attach the popper to a tree or some thing.
tie fishing line to the end of the popper string.
run line accros chosen space.
Expeirement to best suit you needs.

Step 4: Other Uses

attach to a weapon to use as a shotgun.
leave empty, then trigger to scare the crap ouy of enemies.


Iow, I thought Id think of more, somebody comment and tell me another use I can put in here.

If you place all of them inside of a box you could make a really powerful claymore. Once you've loaded it tie all the strings togther and when your friend/enimy comes along pull on the strings.

its not really a claymoore any way its a shotgun unless you set it up with a trip line

author
airsoftiscool87 (author)2008-07-21

ithink youshouls say when your ready you coak the gun and tell the person your pointing at to say cheese and pull loop and trigger and bolth will shoot and you'd have one go further than the rest.

author

lol 1st of all they would shoot you before you had time to say anything and 2nd just tie the fishing line to your trigger on the gun (very tight but not enough to set it off) and just pull the trigger

author
3700823 (author)2010-04-07

they work good if you tape 4 together

 If you mount them in a rotational barrel, you can have a CAW. Set the strings up in one position, so when the barrel turns, the popper goes boom. If you mount 20 or so in a circular fashion, you would have a fully-automatic shotgun for airsoft (AA-12). That would be the worlds' first, and you would be famous. Or just use grenade shells, but this is more fun.

Good job!

This doesnt go as far, so fill up with like 2-5 pellets because the explosion is not enough to launch it like at least a meter

You've been playing too much CoD4..

author
PKTraceur (author)baneat2008-08-24

No, i havent played it in the past 4 (?) months. my PS3 blu-ray player broke.

author
natethegreat88 (author)PKTraceur2009-08-29

Hah, a PS3 actually sort of broke!

author
PKTraceur (author)natethegreat882009-08-29

Other than that being a year ago post, It only broke because they sent it broken.

PS3 doesn't overheat, red ring, brick, disc scratch, hardware failure, hardware failure w/o error messg, cable error, freezing, lag, and hard drive corruption.

Hah, XSux 3Shitty already did!

Neither do the newer 360's.

author
PKTraceur (author)natethegreat882009-08-30

Meh. I still don't like how its a box, and its symbol is a sphere. -PKT

author
natethegreat88 (author)PKTraceur2009-08-30

But it's nice how it's a box type shape so you can stack other stuff on top of it if needed, and the symbols pretty simplictic. Does the PS3 even have a symbol?

Ouch!

No, you are both wrong. It is a type of directional bomb that will propel projectiles by certain means of "tripping" the claymore. Any of these possibilities could include simple trip wire, laser trip wire, remote detonator, motion trip wire,infrared trip wire. Theres probably more, but thats pretty much it. You guys were wrong.

Marble of Doom (author)2009-07-30

Has anyone noticed that maybe 45% of Instructables have bad blurry pictures? Does no one have a macro setting on their camera? When my pics come out bad, I retake them even if it means resetting up my work. Still great job Molybdenum!!!!

author
b5200 (author)venus2008-04-26

That is a grenade. Not a mine.

author
bighead5454 (author)b52002009-07-20

a grenade goes off user controlled EX: Remote pullpin. But a mine is victim activated EX: some type of trip wire so this is a mine
