This instructable is about a grenade launcher that uses Smidge's grenades as ammo. I also made a hand grenade.

Step 1: The Barrel

This is the barrel. The pic shows the pieces on a grey rod. It is upside-down in the pic

Step 2: The Ram

The ram is a grey connector on the end of a red rod (tan in the pic). Also shown is the barrel, still upside-down . Be sure to put the rubberband on the connector.

Step 3: Ram Installation

This step shows how to install the ram. Which grey/yellow piece you put the band on depends on how strong the band you are using is.

Step 4: Ammo Types

The different types of shrapnel, haven't figured out which ones are good for which purposes, mabey you could help with that.

Step 5: The Hand Grenade

This grenade is too heavy to fire from the launcher so I made it a hand grenade. You can use different combonations of shrapnel, in the pic it has tan clips and blue clips.

Step 6: Fireing

To load and fire first you put the round in the tip of the barrel. Then pull back the ram and let go. It should fire, be sure not to pull back the ram so far as to make it HIT out the round as this will result in an almost guarrentied misfire. Have fun and annoy your neighbors with this, unless your neighbor is me or you actually want your pieces back.
I think they are all equal, maybe the grey ones are just a little bit better but just a little bit.
grey connectors work best.
dude, what is mykhailo supposed to be? how do you pronounce it?
Ukrainian form of Michael.
do the grenades actually explode, or even just fall apart? no, didn't think so.
it;s not even a grenade!!!
They explode when you shoot them at a wall. Did you try that? No, didn't think so. You will probably need something like KILLERK's gun for this to work. The only problem was that when you shot it with KILLERK's gun, it would explode upon shooting due to the transfer of momentum from the ram to the bullet. With a gun like this, where the pin is always in contact with the bullet, they do not explode upon firing, but upon impact. Also, the grey connectors are just resting upon the white connector; not actually clipped in.
HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I JUST DRANK COFFEE

that's not the point this was meant to push the grenade out and not hit it out.

what realy is Gmod iv been trying to find out what it is and how you download it???
actually gmod is a mod based off half life 2 you do do litaraly anything you want in it also you can download mods for it.
actually half life 2, half life 2 episode 1-2, counter strike source, portal, and all other games that use the source engine
type :g mod download: its a GREAT game you can take half life props and have fun from gunner
ok Gmod is a conbstruction game its awsome but to play it you havbe to download summet called steam from steampowered.com the nyou can download some older versions of it but for the newest and best one its like £5.00 and totall worth it on Gmod you can coad your own vechiles or just plane make them with the tolls and props in the game its really hard to exsplane its easer to just play it :D so get steam run it make an acount then you can buy games or download free ones. (hope this helps)
