Introduction: Airsoft Rocket Launcher

Picture of Airsoft Rocket Launcher

this is an instructable about how to make a airsoft rocket launcher. I hope to add a video soon. (don't make fun this is my first instructable.) the rocket will go 50 feet. you can use a ball that fits or something else but the rocket goes farer then the rest.(the tennis balls do not go that far only 15 feet at the most.)
the whole thing costs about 15$ I went to ace hardware to get the ingnitor and homedepo for the pvc tubes.

please remember to leave a comment

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

you will need different lengths of pvc pipe one 2 foot, one 1 foot, and one that will be able to squew into the 2 foot. you will also need a weber original igniter kit. also you will need hairspray. you spray hairspray in the back for 7 seconds.

Step 4: Step 2

paint it

Step 5: Step 3

Picture of Step 3

make a hole in the 2 foot pvc in the middle to fit the igniter box and cover the hole with duck tape. (try to make it fit as tightly in the hole as you can.

Step 6: Step 4

Picture of Step 4

put the rocket in the front of the pcp and unsquew the back spray hair spray in the back and quickly close it. hold it on your shoulder and push the igniter button. it will make the rocket go about 50 feet.

Step 7: You Are Now Done

you have finished

say yes in the comments if you want to make my semi fully auto rubber band gun.

Step 9: Other Things U Can Do

please dont bug me on spelling please

how to make it shoots airsoft greanades. makeing the greanade what i have done is gotten a film canster and made a hole in the tennas ball and hot glued the film canster in the tennas ball then all you have to do is get airsoft pellets and put them in the film canster. after that you can spray dust remover in with it(when you spray the dust remover in the film canister make sure that you hold it upside down so that a cold mist comes out of the bottle(or compressed liquid Co20)so just filp the dust remover upside down then spray till the dust remover gets cold (you will know when)once it gets cold all you have to do is spray it in the film canaster and snap the lid on. make sure that you have the rocket luncher ready befor you do this. put the tennes ball in the rocket luncher and push the inghiter in. this will make the tennas ball fly about 30 feet once it hitts something it will explode in airsoft pellets (it hirts) now you are done

what kind of sniper rifleish thing is that at the top of the picture of your Guns?

wazupdoc (author)commando4172009-10-23

 it is the super 9 pro i got it for free 

lug big lug (author)wazupdoc2010-03-16

 i made darts for my super sniper 9....Reply if I should make an Ible.

commando417 (author)wazupdoc2009-10-25

ahh im planning on getting a Tokyo Marui VSR 10 then upgradeing it.... ok thanks PS how you get it for free

wazupdoc (author)commando4172009-10-26

 my aunt gave me it and idk how she got it 

Nerfgenius (author)commando4172009-10-18

I think it is a Black Hawk M6 S sniper rifle by Swiss Arms. I have one of those too, and it can punch holes in aluminum Monster energy drink cans.

wazupdoc (author)Nerfgenius2009-10-23

 yah my UK arms AK-47 can do that

Nerfgenius (author)wazupdoc2009-10-23

How much did you pay for the UK arms AK-47, because if if is around $250, full automatic and can rip holes in Monster energy drink cans, then I am going to save up for one.

wazupdoc (author)Nerfgenius2009-10-26

 i just saved my money and i got it from a guy who  was trying to start i airsoft business and failed so i got it 40% off 

nerd12 (author)2010-03-11

how come the tube,rocket,everything doesn't burn? can you use something else like deo? also you can glue the nosel to the back so it will be easier just spray and click.think what would happen if you used ping pong. it would hurl burning plastic.

hhhttt (author)2010-03-10

so its basically an at4, without the tan paint

Shredder543 (author)2009-05-14

Sweet an AK-47!

This ain't no damn ak-47 it's more like a law

 they mean the ak in the picture of his collection not the main ible

he didn't steal ur icon, it was different

Shredder543 (author)marshman192009-05-19

?! Who's icon?

jackh94 (author)2010-02-18

 Could you not just jam a fat load of bb's in the end of the pipe, hold them in with thin paper or something,the it would be like a stupidly big shotgun :)

djlewis725 (author)2010-01-27

yes! yes! yes!

yeolddingdong (author)2010-01-17

 si, we bien

xcalibur324 (author)2009-06-23

duct tape. not duck tape

darby0malley (author)xcalibur3242010-01-12

unless he was using "Duck" brand duct tape, in wich case he was correct

Colonel88 (author)2009-11-13

It would be better if the entire rocket explooded when it landed, but if you peg someone, it wiil still be AWESOME.

courtchamp17 (author)2009-04-09

that rubber band gun looks insane. u have to show us how to make it. YES!

wazupdoc (author)courtchamp172009-10-23

 k i will work on it

marshman19 (author)courtchamp172009-05-19


MegaMaker (author)2009-05-25

Make the rubber band gun instructable.

wazupdoc (author)MegaMaker2009-10-23

 ok i will work on it'

toxicwolf (author)2009-09-21

does have to be a name brand glue or will an off brand hold

wazupdoc (author)toxicwolf2009-10-23

 i used off brand it doesent really matter

beardie6767 (author)2009-07-12

i think you should do an instructable on this "tennis ball grenade". i have a rocket launcher, but i need to figure out some way to make airsoft grenades that will actually work

Zansion (author)beardie67672009-07-21

hey, i don't want to sound rude. but, i just want to tell you. that you CANNOT make a non-pyrotechnic airsoft grenade. and pyrotechnic air soft grenades are pointless, are not allowed in airsoft matches AND are unpredictable, the blast will NEVER be the same as before, so you wont ever get a reliable grenade. that leaves pneumatic. i have a grenade design i made from an old GBB. it basically, consists of a tennis ball, with 1" barrels, in all directions. about 35 of them. then, a CO2cartgege with a pin glued onto the top. its hooked up to a tripwire. and works nicely. if you understand this at all, feel free to make a grenade with my design.

toxicwolf (author)Zansion2009-10-10

dude i used ur design it worked but it was not that effective but none the less worked
also u can just fill a water balloon with about 20-30 air soft pellets(for regular sized balloons) and then fill the balloon about halve way with water
as for ur design i ran out of materials for another + im working on 6 other projects and profecting 9 others 

wazupdoc (author)toxicwolf2009-10-23

 i am going to make a updated version of this and it will shoot farther because i hav been testing it and now my new design shoots about 100 feet (no longer airsoft) 

toxicwolf (author)Zansion2009-09-21

dude one time I tried using pnuematic the effect was pathetic and wasn't worth the money and time I spent on research and supplies BUT I did not try a design like yours your design reminds me of da vinci's tank design I'm gonna try it though

wazupdoc (author)beardie67672009-10-23

 ok i will try

meanbean (author)2009-10-11

If you made an instructable on that rubber band gun I would definatley make itm

wazupdoc (author)meanbean2009-10-23

 ok i will work on makeing one then

SGplayer (author)2009-10-14

(in screaming voice) eeeeyeaaaaaaaahhhh 

toxicwolf (author)2009-10-10

im almost finished with a smaller version that can be mounted on a RC
as soon as i finish i will post it if possible
but once i finish im sure there will be a "few" bugs to work out im sure nothing too hard nor time consuming
