A description on how the mastermine works.
Posted Image

A is the paint chamber. Fill it with the liquid of your choice, either mix the paint supplied or use an alternate. This can be ued with water etc if you don't want to use paint.

B are two end caps. You can open either or both. e.g. if the mine is laid flat you can point both in the same directions, or even in seperate directions. If the mine is placed vertically you will need to close one of the caps. The chamber and caps can be rotated and angled to aim as you wish.

C is the CO2 chamber. This also contains the pierce pin to spike the CO2. Before inesrting the Co2 the pin must be pulled back and made safe. (See DEF)

D is the safety catch. When the pierce pin is pulled back this can be inserted to prevent the CO2 from being pierced when preparing.

E is the pin to be pulled by the trip wire. (e.g. as on a grenade the pin is pulled)

F is the hook for the pull pin to be placed on

G, H are the tripwire and a spike / peg. Use as required. The spike / peg can be used to secure the mine on the ground or at the end of the tripwire.
I is a spare part. Ignored in these notes.

How to use:

Pull back E, and hook it fully over F
Push D fully in place
A 12gram co2 cartridge can be safely loaded into C

Mount the mine as you wish

Open and point B as required
Mix the paint and fill the chamber A

Lay the tripwire G and attach to E

Ease back E almost off F so that it is ready to release

Pull back D and it is fully armed

When the wire is tripped E will come off F
The spring will be released and spike the CO2 inside the Co2 chamber C
CO2 is released into the paint chamber A
Paint sprays out of B

Wow, I'm starting to understand why there aren't alot of people making these. The whole mine is really easy to make but finding the perfect spring will drive you crazy.

Already made several similar to master mines. Goto http://www.milsimemp...c.php?f=36&t=45 Slight variation on the trigger. I have gone two generations of evolution on the trigger and nozzle setup. I need to post up the new plans

Hey, kage83, I sent you some plans for a "step-on" pressure activated mine I came up with a while back. If anybody else wants those plans I wouldn't mine sharing them.

Here's video of my Homemade Master Mine. It looks almost just like the real Master Mine and it works EXACTLY the same way with the same performance and coverage. I've made a slight change since I took the pics below. I cut down the PVC fittings a bit so the mine is shorter and more compact. I secure the paint resevoir to the CO2 chamber with a screw instead of glueing the pieces together. This allows me to easily remove the paint resevoir so I can use the CO2 chamber on different paint resevoir designs or with burst tubes.

The pic shows the mine armed, with the trip wire attached, and the safety still on.

Wow, you can see the interest in these mines. Since it was started over 2,000 people have checked out this thread. The simple design of the "trip" mechanism is pure genious. It holds ALOT of tension on the spring but is very sensitive. The guys at Major Paintball that design this thing are brilliant.

The total cost is under $15.00. I have changed the paint resevoir part of it. The one in the pic is just too big for my taste. You wouldn't believe how many different resevoir designs I've come up with. It's embarassing how much time I spend designing paint mines. lol. It's a sickness. Anyway it took a while but I finally have a resevoir I'm happy with. The new resevoir makes the mine more compact and allows it to stand up on it's own without depending on the ground stake to hold it up. I'll post a pic of it as soon as I get a chance.
