Thank you so much for starting this topic!!!

I have no idea.

But with the rag-tag mob of haphazard engineers you find on this site, we soon will. Even if one doesn't exist yet!

meh, well, based on the looks of that pic, all it looks like is a paint filled "U" with a cylindrical air canister as a propellant. My only question is how would you set it off? and fill it with air again? i see no area with a good enough angle unless that straight piece can pivot.

Yeah, with the straight peice connecting at the center it's almost definently 2 12 grams facing inward... like that dude said. Although it would be waaaayyyyy better with a small refillable cylinder, and some kind of expansion chamber, with a tripwire actuating a 1/4 turn valve to fire it (easiest way I could think of).

You could operate a small valve to fill the expansion chamber from the cylinder, then shut that valve and set the trip wire to the 1/4 turn on the other side of the expansion chamber. Than all you'd have to do to reload after setting it off is: close the 1/4 turn valve, refill the chamber, and throw a new bladder of paint in that u-shaped-tube. Just a few seconds and you're good to go.

But I have no clue what I'm talking about...

although now someone's probably gonna make that idea work, patent it then become a millionaire selling better cheaper land mines... and I'll be SOL.

i don't have a guide on how to build them but i do know how they operate as i own several of these, they operate by tripwire that punctures a single co2 12 gram. i will try to put up some pics later or a video if i can.
Book of Armaments (Chapter 2, verses 9-21)
...And Saint Attila raised the sprinkler valve up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this Thy sprinkler valve that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy." And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou remove thy solenoid and epoxy the pilot hole, then remove the guide rod, then thread your pilot valve directly to the body of thy sprinkler, lest thou increase thy pilot volume by a single iota, then lobbest thou thy nerfs towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall procedeth to the gates of reinsertion."

I've been wanting to duplicate the Master Mine. They are by far the best tripmine for paintball. I have several. The hard part is making one that works as good but is still compact and cheap enough to make it worth making in the first place. I buy Master Mines on Ebay for around $30.00 shipped. I'm working on one now that should work. If I ever get it finished I'll let you know how it goes. The Master Mine has a one way valve in it so I'm trying to design one that doesn't need that valve. The hardest part is finding the perfect spring which is what I'm working on now.

DVLCHLD...here i thought you were the one that was going to come on here and be all, "i've got those, i'll send them to you...also, here's how to make a paint nuclear bomb...just something that i've been playing around with..."

it seems like an easy enough design, but if they have a valve in there it'll muck up the ease factor.

oh well, i'll see what i can come up with without blowing my hands off.

The Master Mine is by far the best tripmine for paintball you will ever find. The trigger design is really sensitive and the mine puts out a blast of paint you just can't avoid. They cover about a 20 X 30 foot area which is incredible for their compact size. Another thing I like is the sound they make and the blast of paint is INSTANT so even a player that is running doesn't have a chance.


I have two Master Mines and I love these things.

Got it figured out. Once you find the right spring making one of these is rediculously easy. The performance is exactly like that of the real Master Mine.
