It survived ~10 throws in our store before it exploded. We will never stock them.


They are garbage. (sorry)


The real reasons not to stock them:
-Too many parts. It explodes into 8 different parts everytime you throw it, and 6 of those parts are critical and not replaceable.
-It can barely shoot a few bb's, or uses proprietary loads of baby powder (I hate)
-It's expensive
-It explodes itself into pieces.
-It doesn't use propane (well it does, but the timer is dependant on gas pressure, so sometimes the fuse lasts less than 1 second, one actually blew up before it hit the floor from a 3 foot drop)

I think they slammed this on the table with a 6 second delay set....

hmm, so crap eh lol...well damn, looked nice anyhow. I'm trying to come up with something that runs either on propane, or spring loaded (like a locap), i'll post details in a proper section once i figure out the delay mech and other such thingies...I'm trying to put something durable, reuseable and effective together. Gotta love the "neverending quest for and airsoft grenade"

You can't set the delay, it's friction based, so it's quite random. The more gas pressure you have, the faster the plug is forced out of the grenade, and the shorter your fuse is. It's built for duster.

It SOUNDED cool, and it looks nice, but it's totally impractical, has no effect other than noise, is expensive, and just breaks after a few uses (well, maybe not with duster, but then it would be very sad).

We loaded bb's into the chamber (it suggested max 8) - the best we could do was get 6 to fire off at a time. Very sad. Sorry PFI.

How about some of those Escort BB grenades then? They seem to be pretty cool and nice and simple.

The TG6 Thumper CO2 grenade I've been toying with is fantabulous for spraying BBs and making a loud report. Problem is I don't see many people fronting over $100 for a hand grenade regardless of how well built it is or that it's reusable. Honestly, it's so good I want another two for my own use. I've been meaning to make a video of it and I'm going down to Xtreme Tactics tomorrow, so I'll try to remember the camera this time!
