    I made three of these for manhunt it works great and shoots at least 50ft. The only thing different is that mine has a trip wire that sets it off. So the seekers are mis directed. u gotta put poppers on the tray it makes lots of noise.

    dude this is amazing! only thing is...its EXACTLY the same as mine i posted on here a year ago...

    Oops... I forgot to credit you! The thing is, that your project took so long to make. I took your 1-day project and turned it into a ten minute project.

    Yes, but this you can do in just 10 minutes, and the devastator 2 hours. So, 1 devastator vs 12 Ten-minute airsoft claymores?
