It needs refinement but I see potential

it does have a good basic design but it would be a bit obvious, a big tube sticking out. also the pin needs to work better and you would have to ancor the mine in something.

but it looks more reliable then the ones with the trampoline mechanism

Wouldn't be very obvious in woodland at this time of year, it's pretty overgrown, just hide it in some ferns at the side of a popular path. Use fishing line instead of white string so it doesn't stand out. You could tie it to a tree to save it having to be stuck in the ground to hold it there.

Most sites do not allow home made devices anyway, i think something else rather than a nail should hold it in place though.

yea the only main issue would be the pin, its quite long so it would have to be removed quickly or it would either miss fire or fire too late.

and yea its home made but not as bad as making your own smoke

This is not the best design but it is better than the video...

 

the picture below, you could tie a but of fishing wire etc. it would be a lot more sensative than the nail etc.

 

I will make a video soon

MY friend has apparently made a mine using BB's and party poppers. I've yet to seem them though.

 

they're good but the problem is the amount of force used to pop one of them is noticable

okay thats cool, where you guys based?

aslo you fired your prototype?

 

I would consider a smaller length tube so the spring at full extension is about 1 or 2 inches below the turn

that looks good especially as a trip wire device,

 

also how are you going to release it if its tied to a tree then it won't fire as lever thing won't go up?

Thanks, It will, I am making the part where it lock at less of an angle on the metal one... I will make a video soon(ish) on the metal version I am making as the plastic is not strong enough for the spring
