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!

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.

...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."

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.
:fingerscrossed(hopefully not for the last time):
