Following my last post about rifle grenades I thought I would show the prototype in a bit more detail.
The power plant for this system is a 40mm CO2 grenade. I have used the S-thunder mini grenades for this build but there is no reason the design couldn’t be used with a different grenade.
So, how to use! Open the chamber by pulling out the barrel.
Insert your loaded grenade:
Insert the barrel. Have the barrel face downwards to stop premature firing of the grenade. The grenade is locked securely in place when the polished steel is no longer visible.
And bang, you’re ready to go!
This prototype is for my M14, though I would love to make some more of these for other rifles. You can see the video with the initial test firing below:
Let us know what you think in the comments, on Facebook or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will develop these for other rifles as they are requested so let us know if you want one!
UPDATE: Since this post was made initially, I have also started development of a rocket to go on it. The rocket in the attached video is only an initial prototype and improvements will be made as time goes on.
