Introduction: Airsoft RPG

Picture of Airsoft RPG

airsoft rpg great accessory and its cheap and easy if you choose to make one yours may come out different because i made mine like 3 different times due to leeks and other problems. i will make another on how to make a rocket for it.

- about 3ft of 1/2" pvc
- 2 1/2" T connector
- 1 or 2 1/2" end caps
- 1 1/2" ball valve
- 1 1/2" 45 degree angle connector
- 1 to 2 feet of 1 1/2" pvc
- 1 1 1/2" end cap
- rubber tire valve
- pvc cleaner and cement
- saw
- ask the person at the hardware store on how to get from 1/2" to 1 1/2"

Step 1:

Picture of

(Left to right) extra handle for running.............main handle..........trigger (camera made trigger on wrong side its a right handed rpg)........barrel.

Glue in this order or customize to fit you

Step 2:

Picture of

you might want to buy an extra end cap for your 1 1/2" pvc for hole size testing

drill a hole in the end cap that should fit and try to pull the tire valve through so its snug might take a few tries

Step 3:

Picture of

this is when you ask the guy at the hardware store how to go from 1/2" to 1 1/2" . or find out yourself .

Step 4:

glue together and add whatever you want for sights and other accessories

let dry

fill her up with a air compressor or with a bike pump

load with mini marshmallows,bbs,or what ever else you want

be safe and have fun

This is not spam, but a warning. PVC will fail suddenly after a while. This was band member that hurt badly by a T-Shirt launcher explosion.

rpg stands for ROCKET PROPELLED GRENADE, i dont seee any rockets or grenades...

halogirl (author)struckbyanarrow2012-01-13

no it does not. RPG stands for "Ruchnoy Protivotankovy Granatomyot" meaning "hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher"

OOOHHHHH!!! Need some aloe vera for that burn?!

i made one where you sleve a coke bottle over the barrel and fire it that pretty well 

i think it was only made to look like the rpg7

 at least one person understands what it is 

i know im working on that part still

take a bottle rocket and pour bbs over duct tape until its filled with them. then wrap around rocket, put in a piece of 1 1/2 or 2 in plastic/aluminium pipe, ligt the fuse, and watch the other team freak out. my favorite airsoft weapon.

      I wouldn't reccomend using model rocket motors (and gunpowder) for an airsoft RPG.  That's pretty dangerous, and pretty hard to control.  Something soft and water-pressure-based would be much safer, in my opinion (I saw a great instructable for an airsoft grenade made out of surgical tubing on here.  Just add airsoft pellets to the water in the tubing).  The whole point of airsoft is that it's "military-simulation", NOT ACTUAL BOMBS.

well if u use a model rocket motor to propell it is fine just so long as u do not shoot it directly at someone but rather near by them and do not use the rocket motor to spread the pellets but rather to propell a vessle that contains a small charge that releases the pellets from the vessle at least thats what ive done and so far no one has been hurt real bad the worst injury was when my cusin tried to catch the rocket it blew up in his hands and when th vessle exploded it burned his hands a bit oh and there not bombs there rockets a bomb is droped a rocket or missile is luanch from a position

silver362 (author)2010-04-28

would it be possible to make this in the shape of a shotgun?

 i guess so its not hard to do i made one with a tube that went to a backpack or belt with the chamber for air inside instead of it being mounted on the gun

I like ilplug's idea for the rpg, and with some modification to one of the rocket bodies that you normally buy the estes rocket motors for, you could make it more accurate and take advantage of the charge at the end of the motor that would normally blow off the nosecone to propel the BB's out of certian parts of the body. The only issue I could see here is that 1. since it's a model rocket motor you are using, it goes very fast and would hurt a great deal to get hit by it, and it would be timed to go off rather than impact triggered so if ti hits something it will keep going until the fuel runs out then detonate and by that time it could be far away from the target. I am going to see if I can modify a motor and rocket body to be impact detonated and maybe have just enough fuel to that it goes a decent distance at a safer speed. perhaps with just a brief period of thrust when initially launched rather than constant thrust throughout it's flight.

if anyone has an idea for a rocket or a mod for it please let me know

ilpug (author)Airsoft_Maniac_962009-06-30

i made a full ojn rocket launcher out of some 3 inch drainpipe, a screw, a tin can, and an estes rocket motor ignitor.. whole deal was like 20 bucks, the rockets are just rocket motors with a black powder extension stuck into a 20 oz. soda bottle half full of bbs... you can make time fuze attachements, and smoke grenades for it. the thing shoots about 1000 feet with size D motors, but i usually use smaller engines to avoid messing people up... the only tatical disadvantage is that its large, loud, and is rather innacurate, but it is great for blitzing bases, or taking out groups of people... the bbs shoot about 50 feet from the explosion, so this would kinda qualify as a "super weapon" any more Qs? message me if so

u can put like 20 BBs in there and shot it will be just like a shotgun i tryed it and also plz make the instructable a little more descriptive and i know i sound like a teacher

blugyblug (author)2009-06-17

Nice, Love the copper bit, the little bent part makes it look pretty cool. Dont think it would shoot well though, its a ball valve...Could probably explain better though, a fully newb airsoft guy wouldnt really get it...

Airsoft_Maniac_96 (author)2009-04-29

thanks for the ideas

finfan7 (author)2009-04-29

This is more of a rifle/shotgun than an RPG and you can buy those much better and easier than making this. You could use a larger barrel and make some airsoft grenades to fire out of it and call it a cannon. Or you could eliminate the air power system entirely, stick a bottle rocket and a tail into the airsoft grenades and a sparker from a grill into the back end and it really would be an airsoft rpg. Whatever you do make sure you get pictures during the process and if you can't do that get a copy of inkscape and draw up some diagrams.

i would have showed u how to build it but i made the instructible after i built the rpg

ChefZombie (author)2009-04-28

You should add how to build it instead of pictures.

Airsoft_Maniac_96 (author)2009-04-28

its kinda obvious what to do but it works great

Biopyro (author)2009-04-26

This instructable has such potential. 2*

Holden_vy_s (author)Biopyro2009-04-26

I agree, there is no real Instructions other than look at this image then do it.
