Talking Homemade Trip Mine, or Claymore

**Disclaimer**This post is for informational purposes only, and neither the original poster, or anyone connected with this post or this forum is responsible for how this information is used. In other words, you assume 100 percent responsibility, and release everyone directly and/or indirectly associated with this from all forms of liability.




Well here is what I have so far. I won't be able to get the PVC glue stuff until saturday so I wont be able to test it until then but otherwise everything else is done. Works basically the same as the homemade landmine.

I also still need to add some spikes to the bottom so I can stick it into the ground for really quick setup.

How to set it up: stick it in ground behind a tree, wall, or in some bushes. Add co2 and paint. Carefully set up the firing pin and screw on. Tie string to something.

The idea is that people will trip over the string, and that will pull out the little bolt holding the firing pin in place (The firing pin is actually quite secure unless you pull it to the side. I threw it on the ground and it did not come loose). Then the firing pin shoots down and hits the co2, puncturing it on a screw I will put in the bottom. Most of the paint should then shoot out of the side cleanout cap which i drilled 5 - 1/8" holes in.

The pictures are pretty self-explanitory but i'll be around to answer all of your questions.







Oh and after completing it and testing on Saturday I will tell you all how it went and pictures of the final product.

Re: Homemade Trip Mine, or Claymore

Nobody else wishes to comment on my beautiful homemade trip mine?

I do not know an effective way to stick it into the ground (without digging a hole for it). I tried putting some nails through the bottom cap to stick into the ground and thay are not sturdy enough to hold it upright when the string is pulled it set it off.

All ideas are welcome whether stupid or ingenius

Re: Homemade Trip Mine, or Claymore

Maybe if you put the nails/screws through at an angle inward and outward it would be more sturdy, or just use really long nails/screws. Or, make a platform with nails/screws in it, so it has a wider base with the nails/screws for support.

Partially. The trigger with a spring was my idea. I wanted something with a tripwire because it has a better chance of someone hitting it than a mine. Works the same as the "Homemade landmine" though. Co2 hits screw, paint goes out

Re: Homemade Trip Mine, or Claymore

VERY cheap and relatively easy to make if you have the right tools. Mabye around $20 Canadian or $15 american dollars. If you have an adjustable wrench on you, you can tighten the caps so that you can't unscrew them without a wrench so it is impossible to disarm. I still need to do more testing but so far it is coming along very nicely.
