Introduction: Airsoft Claymore(not Technically a Claymore)
yes. this in not technically a claymore, but it serves pretty much the same purpose as one and it is way simpler to make (it only took me about 10 minutes to make and it was definetly worth it). it is great for ambush at airsoft wars and requires very few materials. this is my first instructable ever so spare me if im doing a bad job and please try this project out and leave comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials Needed
electric airsoft gun ( your not doing anything to the gun that cant be undone so don't worry, use your 450 FPS gun)
backup airsoft gun battery (doesn't have to be the specific battery type that comes with gun it can be any airsoft gun battery)
lots of wire
wire strippers (or you could a pocket knife blade like me)
Step 2: The Electrical Wiring Part
to build the electrical part of this project first you cut either one of the 2 wires leading from the battery itself to the whiteish yellowish thing that plugs into the gun and hook 2 long strands of wire about 10-20 feet long each to the 2 open ends of the battery wire ( if you don't know what i'm talking about its the pieces of wire that have electrical tape taped on them in the picture).
the other ends of the long wire should attach to a switch, preferably a switch that cuts off when you remove your finger from the switch unlike the switch i used that you have to switch off manually. then tape all the open wire with electrical tape like shown below. by the way, i used a lot more wire then shown in the picture, it was just cut out of the photo.
Step 3: Installing It to Your Gun
this is definitely the simplest part of the whole project, just take out the old battery, put in the new one you just made, put the gun on full auto, put tape over the trigger. yes putting tape over the trigger isn't convenient, so if you find a better way to hold down the trigger quickly and effectively, please comment.
to charge this thing, you just plug it in to an airsoft gun charger and put the switch to ON. if you leave the switch off the thing wont charge!
Step 4: Uses and Other Stuff
this gun is best used as an ambush weapon. it is very portable so you could have it in your pocket during an airsoft war, and quickly set is up to hiding the gun in leaves or a bush or something like that then when they walk by the target zone push the button, grab your gun and run.
if anyone knows how to hook this thing up to a wireless mechanism to make it remote control, PLEASE COMMENT AND DESCRIBE HOW TO DO IT IN DETAIL. you should also make an instructables for how to do it but don't forget to my name instuctaBAD (yes there is no R in instructaBAD, I accidentally left it out when i made my account and i don't know how to change it)
Also I am not responsible for anybody getting hurt using this thing.
Last but not least, i am not sure how to make a tripod that makes this thing stand up so come up with this one yourself, because thats kinda important, and if you get an idea, of course, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT.
