Re: Mortars

I intend to use an extruded steel tube with a hinged cover on the bottom with a hole in the middle. you take a shell which would be a smaller piece of pipe to fit down the barrel and put a banger in it with the fuse poking out the bottom. you then pack the top of the shells either with bbs or a sol...

Re: Building a Mortar?

I built a Brit 2" mortar, it fires 2-part pyro from TLSFX.

Pretty much all event organisers will supply this sort of thing for players if it's required, and it's unlikely they'll let you use something that's home made, as it were, without their say-so.

Re: Attending WWII airsoft events

What I said about kit was relevant, because you made a comment about people having money for kit but not for attending events. What I said about feeling the need to meet a certain standard [hence the expenditure] with kit was in response to that. But it's not particularly true, though, you don't ne...

Re: German POW movies

This event prompted my memory on a couple of old films involving German escape stories. Might be worth watching if you can find the full films just to get you in the mood. :good: "The one that got away" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVxc8cStNxo Framz Von Werra was arrested as he tried to...

Re: Mortar's

It is also true of people who throw grenades over high walls without looking where they are going to land (like in your lap when you are lying down 'dead' at Crete, ta very much :roll: ) If it's any consolation, I had a MkV land about a foot away from my head when I was 'dead' at the last Cold War ...

Re: Mortar's

Yeah, I did this originally with my 2" mortar, worked ok, if a bit flakey and time consuming with loading the moscart each time, so I eventually converted it to the 2-part pyro.

I've since made a moscart with a sleeved tube on the end for launching pyro and smokes from my NI riot gun.
