This compact, reusable mine is powered by a standard 12 gram CO2 cartridge and sprays 6 ounces of liquid paint, covering an area up to 600 square feet!
The MASTER MINE is an "on-surface" design, meaning you don't need to carry a shovel to the field. It can be set up in less than a minute and has an ultra sensitive trigger mechanism, allowing the use of a light trip cord that can be activated up to 25 feet from the mine or remotely detonated by the user.
The MASTER MINE uses dual, adjustable muzzles for creating different spray patterns. Turn them out to cover a wide area, or point them straight for a concentrated "dude drenching" blast.
Combine these features with its impressive sound blast and the mine can also double as a superb perimeter warning device. Whatever your strategy the MASTER MINE will certainly give your opponents something else to think about before moving on that trail or making that next bunker move.
The Major Paintball Master Mine is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I've used the M-80TR (by the same company), but not with comparable results
a T68 marker with a 16 inch rifled barrel, a Q-loader, a harris bipod, a 4x32 tasco scope and BSA laser sight attachment and last but not least a gas thru stock complete with remote line.
Definitely the versatility of the mine and the trigger sensitivity make it a useful tool
The unnatural pipe shape makes it stand out in the underbrush
I've found that this mine becomes even more useful in the field with some modifications. if you hot glue the trip cord to the wheels of a small remote control car, then you can paint it brown and leave it upside down near the mine. then you can use the remote for the car to trigger the mine by pulling the accelerator trigger. it's crude but it gives you a much safer distance to trigger it from.
I definitely recomend this product for woodsball players and field owners with a decent amount of land. it really puts a little more strategy in the game and it helps to nail the guys who spray thier automatics while walking in a straight frigging line at your bunker.
simple to use
Adds a whole new element to the game.
Trip wire is pretty big and easy to see, but is a minor thing.
Check out my photos on this product above. They are the ones with the blue/green background.
When I first saw this product on line it looked metal. Once it arrived I was a little surprised to see it was in fact plastic. This did not take away from my over all impression of the product. Actually after checking it over I was very much impressed with its simplicity. It has a very rugged feel to it and is pretty light. I followed the advice of the others and bought some low stretch fishing line. They supply you with a metal stake to hold the mine in place when your in the field. I suggest getting a few more and using two for each mine. If you use one it can twist at the last second. I found the instructions were simple to understand. Again, this is a very straight forward product with two safety's, is easy to use and reusable.
The trip wire, its one of those things where its easy to say its a weakness but... if the manufacture included something like fishing line in the package instead of the larger line people would be complaining it breaks to easy, so its a no win situation. I think they did the right thing by including the larger string. I don't hold it against them.
I would suggest this product to others. If you search a little you can find them for $45 dollars (tax and shipping in)

None for what it is.
I've only tested it. I find it works best at 5 to 10 feet. Perfect for trails. It isn't loud like Ive heard. The trip wire works well, tripped or pulled. Great claymore. Place in bunker and wait for the other team to enter. Pull the wire and there history.
I find that home made paint works best. I use 1/2 cup of corn starch 2 table spoons sugar 2 cups of water. stir on low heat until it becomes a gel. Let cool and add a little bright colored finger paint. I use neon pink. Add water to get a thick paint, sort of the texture of whats in a paintball.
It is smaller then it looks in the picture. But I think it is the perfect size for carrying.The double safetys are easy to work and should be used until ready to arm.
These dont make big bangs or cover long distances but for what they are they will make woods ball fun.
I've just ordered another one and can see by summer I'll have a bunch of them.
