Table of contents



One of the two was tall and lanky, the other shorter and more compactly built, so Kraut had dubbed them "Mutt and Jeff. After studying many types of artillery fuses from the Civil War to the Nineties, the Texas boys had devised a mechanism small enough to fit in a projectile, robust enough to be safe to launch, and reliable enough to work on impact-- and all of the components were available at your local hardware store.

Mark had been impressed when Mutt and Jeff had demonstrated it for him back in when he made a trip out to the Lone Star state. What really impressed him was not the reliable fuse, but the guts of the men who put the shotgun to their shoulders and touched off the infernal contraption. Whenever Kraut tested a rifle grenade or rifle grenade launching platform, he lashed the rifle to an old tire and used a very, very long lanyard to touch it off.

This procedure had saved Mark's life more than once. That Mutt and Jeff did not do this said something about either their cojones or their sanity, Mark wasn't sure which. Mueller was now taking their design a step further by working it into the highest efficiency rifle-launched projectile able to be constructed by a basement workshop.

First came the antipersonnel round. For this warhead, designed to throw shrapnel in every direction, it was better to move the fuse point of detonation into the center, rather than the base. Based on tests of varying size and weight, Mark had already calculated the best throw weight for the grenade. With this knowledge in hand, he found components which when assembled would match the optimum weight.

Schedule 40 or Schedule 80 PVC was fine for a casing, light but reasonably strong. Kraut had worked up a jig to hold an electric drill with the chuck extending above the table top of the work bench at a 90 degree angle. Into the drill chuck, he inserted an adjustable cup that would hold the PVC pipe and adapter base already glued together using PVC cement.

As the drill rotated the PVC warhead, Mark squeezed in glue until it was covering the inner wall completely with a thin layer. Then he would insert steel ball bearings, small nails, or some of the flechettes he had left over from the anti-ATF shotgun shell project. The centrifugal force of the rotating casing distributed the projectiles along the casing wall. Then in went more glue and more projectiles, always leaving room for the fuse mechanism and explosive charge.

He had done this years before when working on improvised hand grenades, testing them inside a railroad culvert lined with plywood-backed poster board so he had been able to analyze the blast patterns. Steel ball bearings seemed to throw the most consistent pattern, regardless of whether he used black powder, aluminum flash powder or improvised C4 as a burster. Over the past ten days, Mark had completed all of the design work and prefabrication of components necessary to make 2 grenades of each type he wished to test.

There were antitank grenades of differing sizes and liners, 3 on the M31 platform each with a different composition liner and 9 different Israelis, antipersonnel and antitank. What the militia ordnance man was doing now was the assembling of the final product, including loading in the C4 and arming the East Texas detonators.

He worked slowly and carefully, stopping often to get up and stretch. He was sweating despite the coolness of the basement and every so often would mop his face with an old dish towel. Eight and a half hours after he began, the last of the improvised rifle grenades was nestled in its cardboard shipping tube, six tubes to a backpack. The backpacks were made of Realtree camouflage pattern of the type some hunters use, and Kraut had picked them for a steal when the local Service Merchandise had gone out of business years ago.

Mueller was always bringing odd items home, stuff that had no apparent earthly purpose as far as his wife could see and no virtue other than it was dirt cheap. Millie had long ago ceased asking, figuring that there were other husbands with stranger hobbies and worse vices. Ignorance may not be bliss, but it sure can be functional occasionally in a marriage.

Especially when your husband was up to what Kraut was up to. Mueller smiled, and wiped the sweat from his face and hands once more. There were other projects he was working on, of course. The improvised rifle grenade project he had dubbed "Project R". It was the first to come to fruition because it was the easiest to accomplish. His friend Bob was working on a related project, dubbed "P," in a remote farm machine shop in Shelby County. Because it also involved shaped charges, most of what Kraut learned with P would be applied to R.

Bob was working on the launcher even now and he did not need the warhead to accomplish that. When both R and P were finished, they would devote all their energies to the most ambitious of their plans, "Project M. Panzerfaust "Show me what you've got," said Kraut.

Bob Smith smiled craftily, his dark eyes glittering, showing some of his Korean ancestry, and he flipped back the lid of the long, surplus Israeli rocket crate that rested on the folding table in the farm shop.

We’ll be back soon!

I still can't believe you can buy this stuff at flea markets over there," he said shaking his head. As you know we chose the Panzerfaust because it doesn't require the complex chemistry and safety issues involved in making rocket fuel like the bazooka, just black powder as a propellant. Because of that, of course, the tube must be much stronger.

The was a step above the older, smaller Panzerfausts , with a new firing tube with a two-stage propellant charge that weighed grams or 6. This gave it a projectile speed of about 60 meters per second, that's about feet per second and a range of meters, hence the designation. The was pretty much the last Panzerfaust that made it into the hands of troops in any numbers, showing up first about the time of the Battle of the Bulge. The tube length on this specimen is cm, which strangely splits the difference between the two lengths I've found in the books.

It's got a tube diameter of 60 mm just like our early bazooka. With the original projectile this weapon weighed about 7 kilos, or between 15 to 16 pounds. You can see the sights are creviced for ranges of 30, 60, 80 and meters and those flakes are what's left of the glow-paint night sights. That last meter notch is real optimistic even with 7 ounces of blackpowder throwing it.

Here you can see the arming and firing system with the lever that also serves as the rear sight. This was an improvement over the earlier Panzerfausts. But all in all they are perfect to sell to World War II Wehrmacht and Waffen SS re-enactors along with an originally-shaped blunt hardwood projectile painted to look like metal.

The projectile's inert and they're black powder, so they're not covered under any of the Feds crappy laws, yet. Until the ATF decides to shut down that hobby, we can sell them all day long and plow the profits back into making these. Basically, its a combination of features from the Panzerfaust and which never got fielded with the same tube as the , but reinforced with bands of steel strapping here, here, here, and here. These reinforcements ought to make the thing reusable for at least ten shots. Like the original , we can increase the length of the projectile and the amount of black powder increments to give you more efficient flight, speed and accuracy than the original along with a much heavier charge which will punch more armor.

You will also note that we have replaced the cumbersome and hard to duplicate arming and firing system with the RPG style firing handle that the Germans finally got around to putting on the Panzerfaust Why not use a bigger tube? Seems like the reinforcements add to production time and cost. We also wanted to maintain a heavy projectile throw weight.

Bob Smith reached behind the box and pulled out a shorter but fatter object. You can see the cavity in the base for the secondary 'booster' charge of black powder, and the fabrication process facilitates loading the warhead. I mean the black powder solved the rocket fuel questions, but, darn, you really did it well. M Central Standard Time. Or where he makes them? Not pleased at all. My toddler could outrun him. What's wrong with you people?

Two of them looked at the floor and one looked out the window. The fourth stared at a point at least six feet above the SAC's head. The ASAC cleared his throat. I called up Barney Williams, you remember sir, the special agent who retired just after you came here. Barney said the guy drove like a bank getaway man and had a great many friends to help him with diversions when he needed them. He's got the electronics to scan for the latest bugs and he's very, very careful about his communications.

He seems to communicate through both dead and live drops all over the place, but we can't catch him at it. If it weren't for the Confidential Informant, we wouldn't have known about the testing at all. The SAC said nothing, staring very intently at a pencil on his desk. The ASAC ventured another factoid. He would pretend to discuss illegal stuff on the phone just to sucker us into wasting our time chasing Tinkerbelles through NeverNever Land.

Barney said he suckered the ATF into firing the company that cleaned the building because he convinced them in a wiretap that janitors were going to put brown recluse spiders in the raid gear in their lockers to bite their dicks and make them fall off. The SAC looked up. Where did he learn that, do we know? Maybe he learned it then. What kind of sense does that make?

He converted to Christianity and turned hard right and has been there ever since. It's in his file, he's not shy of talking about it. It was a thick one, he noted, a very thick one. He flipped it open and an old polaroid clipped to the inside front flew off and landed at the edge of his desk top.

Reaching out, he retreived it and saw a portly middle aged man standing, no, posing, by the tailgate of his pick-up truck. A huge sign covered it, and the man was smiling broadly. The Secret Service actually stopped him on the street and asked to take a picture of him and his pick-up truck. They took several polaroids and we asked for one, according to the notes. As I said, he has a sense of humor. I think the Secret Service guys did too. They didn't much care for guarding that President and his wife. A man who has a gift for blarney and who may or may not have destructive devices capable of blowing up vehicles and small buildings?

What are his motives? Is he being paid? Is he being paid enough? Enough not to double-agent on us? The control agent was meeting with the CI right now. The ATF's on me to let them have him as part of some big deal case they're working, as if screwing up the Gordon thing wasn't enough they think they got to take on this guy and his considerable number of friends. But the Hoover Building says no. Not just no, but hell no. There's something about this particular guy that they want us to handle. OK, so handle it, Mr.

The SAC shifted his gaze to the window and the world outside. What was so special about this guy that the Director was personally interested in keeping him out of the hands of the ATF? He didn't know, but he intended to find out. Solid rockets aren't as big of a deal as you might think. I've found this interesting reading, as I'm building a story along similar lines.

  4. Of course, I can't help but try to fit in the Second Coming, Furries, and aliens and spaceships. It'll be fun though. PET tubing is a high density, highly crosslinked polyethylene similar to Spectra Shield. Could your characters make bullet trap grenades by splitting PET, cutting out discs and loading a stack of discs into the grenade's tail? That's the thing I love about the Internet, cross-pollinization of ideas makes for a hardier species. It's even still legal to try to find out! Checked at my local home store today. Larger sizes can be special ordered, but 1 inch when split and flattened would be just over 3 inches wide which should be plenty.

    It might need ironing or be run through a pants press to flatten the curve. If PEX works for this it might also be useful for body armor - perhaps layered strips in the style of the Roman Lorica Segmenta or riveted to a cloth backing like medieval brigandine. Japanese armor was designed to overlap, providing a double layer over most of the surface. I've said before that with modern materials tech, we've come back around the circle to where armor can match the weapons of the day, much like plate and swords were before the gun came along.

    You could recreate the old knight anew, an expensive suit of armor that can stop just about anything man-portable, possibly even blast to some extent. But it's not as heavy as steel or ceramic plate and has better coverage. It will stop a rifle round and is available to civilians. I know this comment is coming several months after the others, but I felt a correction was needed. Dragon Skin is not available for civilian purchase. They will sell it to contractors who work for a security company, such as Blackwater, or any other.

    But, Pinnacle Armor will not sell Dragon Skin to regular civilians such as myself. Trauma plates are also good for reinforcing vehicles from small-arms fire. The engine, the cab, the fuel tank, and the trailers, if you are working with trucks require the most vital attention. Plates used on vehicles can be attached using samurai style overlapping for greatest effectiveness against anything up to a.

    Look the formula for Rocket Candy up on line. It can be used to launch a rocket very high, I think it would also be good for a RPG round. If you can get Potassium Nitrate, you can make it. You could even make the Potassium Nitrate, as the directions for making it are also on line. Subscribe to Post Comments [ Atom ].
