"Blast Rule" Grenade
Many groups and event are using Tennis balls or rubber grenades and a "Blast Rule" for grenades, or spending $$ or a reusable gas grenade only to find it doesn't perform 1/2 as well as our M805s and then end up filling it with powder.
both have the issues..
With the tennis ball people can miss the fact it landed near them or the "witch bounce did it go off" argument..
Gas and rubber grenades can injure a player and are costly to loose
We have found the perfect middle ground., The Tennis Ball Conversion kit!!!!
On impact it unfurls 3' of orange flagging tape so you can find it, and players can see were it "went off"..
PLUS it has one of our famous cap mechanisms so sets off a cap gun cap on impact too
Players will KNOW they are dead.
For a more milsim look you can paint the ball black. NOTE it comes with the pull pin safty, but not the key ring shown, add your own if you like the look
nope it isn't going to go off 100% every time, but then you are no worse off then just a strait ball. Its not like a $40 gas grenade is 100% either. Better used in a mount environment then dense wood land
Hot glue or tape one end of 3' of orange tape to a tennis ball
Slide the tape threw the larger hole by the rim of the black cap.
Tie the tape around the lever arm of the firing mechanism.
Place a cap on the post of the firing mechanism
Bring the hammer back on the firing mechanism and close the lever arm, place in the black cap and secure with the safety pin
Slide the black rubber band under the pin on the out side of the cap
Fold the orange tape in to the black cap and attach the cap to the ball with the rubber band
To use pull the safety pin and move the rubber band to the side of the cap, throw hard
You will have to experiment a bit as to the best position of the rubber band for the type of site you play @
Do not leave the grenade loaded for long periods of time, this will cause the spring in the firing mech to weaken
$14 for parts to convert 3 balls (not included), Comes with 3 black caps, 3 firing mechanisms, 3 pull pins (no key ring), 9' of flagging tape, and 3 black rubber bands
