Topic: M18/M18A1 Claymore APERS mine


I have a M18 Claymore mine with all its equiptment, Detonator, test lamp, and wire.

I think it maybe the real deal, I think that its real but the explosives have been removed but I need some help determining.

Take a pistol and fire a couple shots at it - make sure it's a dud

Just kidding...looks pretty real to me. Where di you make a find like this, if I may ask!

Open it, from that place where those "legs" are connected with a screwdriver or something softer.

All 700 hundred stelel ball bearings are inside it and the back says BACK APERS.

I found it on a range trail at Knox. I was walking down a dirt road near my housing area. Got some M18 Smoke nade spoons and pins too. And a target hit by a Claymore.

It's a Claymore. A word of advice. You need to find out if it is indeed "live". If the projectiles are there then the charge maybe as well .
You being in possession of it could constitute possesion of a WMD and or Explosive Device by several State's Statutes and under the United States Criminal Code.

Contact your Police Dept. or the US Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms. Or they might pay you a visit anyway.

You are right 03USMC, getting fined or blown up isn't worth having a souvenir at home.....

It contains no explosives. I was wondering how long it would take so one to see it says INERT on it and has a blue line on it, blue the color for training and dummy equpitment, this is a real Claymore with the C4 crage removed, but eveything else is 100% real.
