    Form 1 DD RPG 7

    My idea based on what I’ve read.

    Weld inside (welded at each end) the RPG 7 tube a straight steel tube (rated for black powder charges ) that would act as the new barrel.

    The new barrel would have a smaller diameter than a regular RPG7 however all the black powder “rockets” will be made by me.

    Extend the firing pin to compensate for the longer distance of barrel material.

    The ammo will be based on the RPG 2 Rockets, only a smaller diameter due to the new barrel insert. a black powder charge in a thin cardboard tube that has a primer secured to it. This cardboard tube will be connected to a aluminum rod that will hold the fins for stabilization and is hopefully the reusable part. At the end of the aluminum rod will be the thread adapter which will hold either rubber or 3-d printed inert “warhead”. The plastic ones will contain chalk.

    This is the rough shape it’ll have, obviously no explosives. It’ll just be a trainer rocket with more boom compared to the subcal rockets.





    For a form 1 Destructive device paperwork, What information do I put down for part 4? What do I write in for caliber, length, manufacturer?

    you will be the manufacturer of the weapon, so you would put your name there with city and state you're in. caliber/size would be the diameter of the tube the rocket will be fired from, length would be how long the tube is

    since you are the manufacturer of this weapon you would have to engrave, to ATF specs; height and depth of lettering, your name (as manufacturer) location, serial number, model number and caliber/size, just like any manufacture of firearms are required to do, offhand I don't know what the lettering specs are, so you need to research that part

    Johnathan, have you though abut using a subcaliber insert and estes rockets similar to the old LAW trainer? Probably a wee bit safer

    I wouldn’t mess with smokeless powder which the rpg 7 originally used. Black powder has a much weaker pressure so I’m certain after several remote tests of over charged loads, it would be safe. I’ll be testing the barrel insert before it’s welded in place to ensure it can handle it

    Just waiting on approval for my form 1 Panzerfaust Hyprid. It’s going to be a hybrid between, the panzerfaust 60, panzerfaust 44 and RPG2. There’s a possibility of getting a regular panzerfaust trigger kit so I may do an exact clone.

    I’ll be firing reusable chalk rounds, no explosive in the warhead. I also want to eventually build a beehive round that shoots 4 .410 shells.

    The round will be launched using Black Powder charge under 4 ounces to keep within the law.

    (No manufacturing has started, just put everything next to each other)

    If you watch the video, the company has figured out the strengths required. They are using 3.5-4 ounce charge to launch the rpg2 rocket without issue. It’s definitely not to be taken likely. I waited until someone did it before continuing my project
