Looking for some help to get these old land mines operating

Below are some pictures of a mine my friend and i have. We are hoping to get them to work before a Senario Game we are playing in this weekend. If you have ever owned one of these or know how they work please let me know!

Below are some images of the Mines:

Mine help

I hate to be a wet blanket, but the mine
in your photos is no longer produced and
even when it was there weren't a lot of
them. They were all made by hand by a
guy who lived in NJ, at least ten years
ago.

Internally they had a series of valves
which opened once the trip wire released
the core shaft. trouble with them started
with the fact that you had to take them
apart to reset the valves. If you under or
over tightened some of the bolts, they'd
either leak or jam.

You'd be better off putting on display and
looking for either a M80TR or an updated
Mastermine. Both of these were made by
Major Paintball till they stopped selling to
the civilian market and switched over to
DOD sales. neat thing about these is the
fact that you can use them with or without
what they call a 'burst tube.' Take my
advice and use them with the tubes as the
people who ttrip them will probably pee
their pants when they go off.

Sincerely,
