Managed to test fire my RPG-2 last Saturday. Very pleased with the results. First round was from a test stand and triggered with a long lanyard. Second round was shoulder fired and may still be circling the earth,lol. It disappeared over the top of some tall trees which were 300 yds away while still on a flat trajectory!. Amazing thing about it is I felt absolutely nothing  except for smoke fore and aft. Truly recoiless!  Rifle is on a Form1 and classed as a DD.

Very cool!

Did you manufacture the rockets?

What kind of propellant?

I made the expelling charges and the tube. The "rockets" are surplus. For the propellant, I used Goex Cannon grade and followed the original construction design. Sorry about MO's laws this the funnest thing I've done in years. Oh, and 60 mm mortar too!

It rained most of the day so I didn't really get a chance to use it. Lotys of cleaning to do for very little shooting. Last time I used it having lots of trouble with the drum magazine. Fortunately another shooter there has lots of experience with all things German and and gave me an armorer's clinic about it!

Who reactivated your tube?  I bought an RPG2 a while back with bars welded in the tubes.  Trigger mechanism is still intact.  I just don’t know a good person to do the welding, and that’s one job I wouldn’t want done poorly.

The tube is a new one I made myself. I decided not to reweld for various reasons. Mostly the obvious ones.
