Claymores/Apersmine shells

    I was just wondering if anyone knows where I could buy a plastic shell for a claymore or similar anti personnel mine, or if they're even available at all.

    I'm working on a project to make an airsoft mine and would like to make it look authentic.

    Thanks in advance for any info :)

    Haven't heard of anything like that.

    Do you want it to look real or just 'work'*?

    You could try something like this but substitute the paper maché with a fibreglass repair kit you can get from most hardware shops.

    *by 'work', I don't mean explode :)

    I'd prefer both really but I'm willing to give some leeway on looks to provide functionality.

    Basically, it needs to open from the front similarly to commercially available ones and be re-used. I can make it open myself by cutting it in half and adding a hinge etc.

    So sturdy enough not to be broken in half by the force of 'detonation' but more realistic looking than a wooden box painted green :)

    I believe (but could be wrong ) that the lads in Pro-Tac in Kildare have a heap of deactivated claymores :)

    Nothing more convincing then real steal :D now while they won't be listed on their website they did have a mountain of them stacked about 4 ft high on a shelf behind the counter so your best bet is to ring them I'd say or drop in if your anywhere near the Curragh :)

    Ya but they are over-priced (Unless bought abroad, then your playing duty-roulette)

    Also there are like four different brands and two of them are sh*te I believe. And I can't remember which, so now it's ACM roulette
