Rob you were just looking for an excuse to use the word "Penetration"


Carl can't wait to see the product. I've got two frag grenade pouches that need to be used for things other than smoke grenades and well err Smokes
Were there moisture tests done for submerged grenades?
Vehicle tests (Driving a vehicle over) for them as well?

I'm sure all sorts of players who play different styles of games are looking at these and are going hmmmmm (If you people don't get that refrence your too young and go away! ).

And lastly for this post anyways I vote a working M203 instead of mortar since I see plenty of people with 203s (or other grenade launcher variations) on all sorts of fields (be it Indoor, outdoor, cqb, skirmish, milsim, themesoft or any other stupid tag you want to place on your type of airsoft).

Personally, the times I've wanted a grenade in an outdoor scenario is when someone's holed up in/behind a bunker/foxhole/small hill/building/etc and I can get close enough to throw something in but not advance any farther to do the job with an AEG....

MadMax - once you've got the patent paperwork and stuff in place you should put your first run of 'nades up for pre-order: I'm sure I'm not the only one with enough faith in AI to put my money up front before seeing one.... (might give you enough cash to start a second run sooner?)

- Not really, when tossed it would make a thud indoors, outside, not so much. When the BB's eject there is noise but it's not like a pyrotechnic grenade ..mmmpmmhphmm .. darn non disclosure agreement..

Their fun, Their easy to use, durable, reusable and found that they work -great- .. that's all I gotta and can say for now

Impervious to moisture due to mode of operation, not a concern...

I don't think you would want to immerse them.. but then why would you?

Mud incursion could adversely affect the performance of my grenade as it might foul certain mechanisms. Otherwide, it should be ok with getting wet. All of the parts are pretty corrosion resistant, but it probably isn't dishwasher safe.

My real concern is users throwing grenades into someone else's face. I tried my best to keep the thing light, but 180bbs and gas have a finite weight which can still hurt if you get directly beaned. I had someone throw grenades at my head to see if they could dislodge my goggles a bunch of times. It hurt my face when he missed the goggles, but good pball goggles were very difficult to dislodge. I wish I had a mannequin head.
Hehe! I find it funny that you intentionally told someone to chuck your grenades at your head! But I guess it must be done, all in the name of safety :P. Good luck with your product. I assume it will be very popular.

I'd take 3-5 units on pre order. Been watching this with great anticipation! Way to go, Max.
