3D printed airsoft Claymore

This is the most recent version of my airsoft Claymore. I had done four others but they were messy, unreliable, and difficult to build. For this one, everything was designed beforehand to the last millimeter. I’ve tested it a few times during matches and it works reliably. It has movement detection and throws BBs with

Fully functional Overwatch gun

Youtuber Danger Doc has made one of the best looking custom replicas around, and shows in a video all the build process. The gun is made of 3D printed parts, electronics, a premade gearbox, and some other small components. Some parts of the build require a lathe and a very specific plastic curing toy oven,

Full face mask from generic goggles and mesh mask

One of the first worries for beginner airsoft players is eye protection and, in case of CQB, mouth protection. A full face mask might be a bit pricey, so a common setup is using goggles plus a half face mesh mask. For example, I got this pair:     Finding them in Amazon or eBay

An ideal airsoft toy gun for your DIY projects

In order to build a project such as a sentry gun, you’ll need a small gun you can strap to a pan and tilt mechanism. The problem with many sentry guns out there is that they use an unmodified gun and interact with its trigger. Ideally a modified electric gun would be better, since the

Sound grenade for Airsoft [Part 2: Electronics]

Let’s get started on the second part of the sound grenade build, this part focusing on soldering, programming and assembling the electronics into the enclosure. For instructions on how to make the 3D-printed enclosure, check out Sound grenade for Airsoft [Part 1: Enclosure]. I decided to use an ATtiny85 microcontroller and the Arduino environment because

Sound grenade for Airsoft [Part 1: Enclosure]

Commercial airsoft grenades have to be refilled with CO2 capsules every time they are used. This sound grenade aims to be more economical since it can be used hundreds of times on a single coin cell charge, although you will lose the realistic loud bang and the ability to throw BBs. It consists of a
