Prototype Airsoft Trip Mine.





Introduction: Prototype Airsoft Trip Mine.

About: Avid Geocacher and fan of all things iBles.

The airsoft land mine I bought was a pitiful waste of $50. The self proclaimed "loud boom followed by a large blast of powder" was a tiny pop and half inch high puff. Enemies didn't even notice that they triggered it. This is the prototype version of my trip mine. It throws BBs about twenty-eight feet and baking soda about five. It is spring powered and acts like a piston; the spring is attached (by a washer and screw) to a plug. To operate, place the spring mechanism inside the pipe. Push it down with a plunger and lock the plug in place with the pin. As soon as I finish the final version I will post an Instructable.

    because this is more powerful.

    you should try attaching a string on the cork, so it won't go flying and peg someone in the face

    I solved that problem, if you'll note the link at the bottom of the slideshow's description. : )

    no sir, you use shower curtain rod. those have HUGE springs.

    Where do you get the springs for this? Also, crap, I forgot my second question.

    Aw poop. I was thinking like stuff at home. I dun haz ne muneez. My airsoft gun is just a cheap manual spring pistol anyways.

    The springs are super cheap and come in packs of 4 or 5.
