So, I want to make a grenade launcher...

I have some plans, but they are pretty vague on how to make one. If anyone had a diagram on how it's done, that would be great.

Basically, what I want is the tube design and a wooden stock to slightly resemble an M79 of sorts. Trigger optional, but would be nice. Atleast some comfortable to make it fire.



Basically that, sort of. I'm not really thrilled with the little lever to fire it though.

I did a google search, but the plans I got were sort of half-assed in their descriptions. A diagram of how one works would be best to see how I could improve on the design and such.

Remember if you play at a field it has to be field legal.

Safety is my number one concern with this. Someone else and I spent some time throwing out some ideas, and we basically came up with this.




That's a closeup of the valve.

hm, simple yet thoughtful... might need to think over the copper and use some thing like aluminum? and maybe a bigger pipe cause it looks like your planning to use a whole co2 catridge to shoot it once

That's really the only kink in my plan. The valve is rated to 150psi. I've read around and saw ~130 psi is what you need to fire safely.

I was thinking of maybe rigging a regulator in it somehow or correctly sizing the expansion chamber to close to the 130psi mark.

how about using one of those stock spyder asa's and putting a reg on it, then put the co2 catridge adapter on it and adjust as needed....hmm but would that change the volume of gas inside the chamber?ill think it over
