Non-pyrotechinic, eh? What do you think the stuff that makes it pop is? Vinegar and baking soda? (p.s. It's gunpowder.)

no its a spring

scris101 (author)Landon Sullivan2008-08-19

Kaiven (author)scris1012008-08-21

nice cow isn't that the one from the "cows with guns" song

firebird11692 (author)scris1012008-08-30

theres a thing inside of it that when you turn it, it's like a key and it lets the spring loaded thingy shoot forward....kinda hard to 'splain...

wizerd 745 (author)firebird116922008-09-21

your right

nerd12 (author)Landon Sullivan2008-08-23

no it is not I found out that they have a easy to reload spring mechanism. open an used one and find out.

jmanjman (author)nerd122009-03-11

different brands make them different. it should tell you on the side,er i guess round things don't have a side.

I've opened one before, It's a spring.

yourworstnightmare (author)2010-07-11

this is practaly meanbeans but his is better!

jmanjman (author)2009-03-11

this isn't much of a grenade. it's more like a panzerfaust or landmine if you put a trip wire.

1spartan95 (author)jmanjman2009-03-22

I say it's more of a bazooka.

scris101 (author)1spartan952009-12-17

well, you can put a plastic bag or something in there fill the bag with bbs then shoot it, thats more of a bazooka 

volquete (author)2009-01-02

kid3 (author)2009-10-01

big party popper any specific details

serith (author)2009-05-11

is it re usable, cuz if it's spring powered, it probably is.

imthatguy1125 (author)serith2009-08-21

Yeah it is

zipzapper859 (author)serith2009-07-04

with some force pull the twisty thing at the bottom off and if u r smart and strong anough place the rectangle thing in the right place and turn

zipzapper859 (author)2009-07-04

i found if u fill w/ bbs and tape a napkin over the end the bbs won't fall out

pyroboytodumax (author)2008-09-26

lambman64 (author)pyroboytodumax2008-11-26

rokor (author)lambman642008-11-30

I got mine at Dollarama, a Canadian store that sells everything for a dollar.

jmanjman (author)rokor2009-03-11

daltonjcw (author)jmanjman2009-04-06

sharlston (author)daltonjcw2009-06-12

pocdragon (author)2009-05-23

i messed around with theses before, never thought to pack it with airsoft that plastic confetti that it comes filled with is crazy annoying

Airsoft_Maniac_96 (author)2009-04-28

this works ok i made 3 and they dont hurt if you can get a bigger spring for it then i would really use it...

An Villain (author)2009-04-27

fill with poppers/snappers instant grenade shotgun

powertotheslaves (author)2009-01-02

yeah ive made one of these before. I uploaded a video of me building it on youtube like a year ago... got some haters there...

Father Christmas (author)2008-11-10

i tried thsi a few years ago. i also tried to modify it into a tripwire. didnt work.

i did the trip wire, and it works great ! Killed my friend after he walked out of the bathroom ! lol

nice. how did you set it up, i still havent figuered out a way to do it.

I put sticky tack on the back so it would stick to the wall, and duck taped the string to the other end of the wall

ok, i get that, but how did you set it up on a tripwire?

rokor (author)Father Christmas2008-11-30

All you would have to do is attach the wire to one end of the twist peice, and when you set it up make sure that the attached section is facing away from the target area. The force pull will pull the string and since the string is not facing you, it will twisted the bottom to get in-line again. I hope that made sense.

Father Christmas (author)rokor2008-11-30

not quite, but i think i get it.

scris101 (author)2008-09-26

oh whoops lol i got them at walmart and it was a 20 pack for 5 dollars

megapun13 (author)2008-09-05

look at my instructable on the airsoft have a better fps and it works well for sudden attacks from nowhere.the only prrotechnic piece mine has is little poppers to shoot bbs

scris101 (author)2008-09-02

ok ok ok i figured id say something here its not nessicarily a grenade i know that the reason why it didn't shoot far is i filled it to the brim with bbs try only putting 100-200 bbs in it with that said you can easily put a fire cracker in there i bought a set and it came with tons of fire crackers i do like this better because you don't need to light it on fire and not know when it blows up its more of a shotgun burst with 200 bbs thats small and convenient sorry that didn't cut it for you "hardcore" grenade enthousist its one of the easiest because it doesn't involve scissors,drills,bombs,tape,and its one of the cheapest the little thing costed me 80 cents about $1.20 including the bbs i will change the name to airsoft BB shower happy ?

Teh_Fluff (author)2008-08-03

it's more of a one chance shotgun, amazing, but a waste of bbs

nerd12 (author)Teh_Fluff2008-08-23

it a big waste indeed

scris101 (author)nerd122008-08-23

well how do you think they make all the other grenades you need to have freakin bombs to set them off then they use the same amount of bbs i used i got 30 of those party poopers for 8 dollars ok 1 fire cracker is 8 dollars i dont know what im wasting

Side-winder (author)scris1012008-09-01

dude... 1 fire cracker is 8 dollars? try 500 for 8 dollars.. grenades you throw and they go boom. this you have to be standing beside him. may as well ask him to shoot you in the nads. save you some time on finding the outcome of this thing. ive tried making these but it doesnt work. been trying for years.

bob the builder #1 (author)2008-08-01

I bought the same thing at the store! It really sucks just pour confetti into a spud gun it works way better.
