Thunder Snap Impact Grenades provide a lower cost alternative to blank firing grenades.
THESE GRENADES USE SNAP BANGERS / THUNDER SNAPS, NOT PRIMERS OR BLANKS!
Throw against a hard surface and get a boom -- about as loud as a 209. Simple as!
At around 80 grams, these pose a far smaller safety risk than BFGs. You can get 3 of these for the price of some other impact grenades.
Similiar to impact BFGs, these are likely not suitable for woodland environements as a hard impact surface is required.
A gentleman called Robert Brett can do 450 snaps for £35 posted, (8p ish a bang!). He can do bulk orders as well at very competitive prices Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thunder Snaps / Snap Bangers can be sourced from the following places. As well as many more! I recommend snapbangers.com :)

They also come up on eBay from time to time. Most fireworks shops will have these available. Additionally I am in talks with a lot of airsoft sites to stock these
They are also referred to as snap bangers
To reload your grenade, first unscrew the lid. Then place a thunder snap into the hole in the lid. Following this, place the body above the lid, with the threads facing towards one another, and screw back together.
The TSG is now primed. There is no safety, however, without impact, the TSG will not detonate. It is safe to store in a pouch, or 40mm grenade holster.
At the end of the game day, remove the unused thunder snaps from your grenade and place them back into the padded bag.
Always wear gloves when handling pyrotechnics
The TSG works best when ‘posted’ onto one of its ends from above 3 foot. Best sound amplification is achieved when the hollow end is facing upwards.
Unlike a BFG, the TSG can be safely posted with a small amount of force, as it weighs ~80 grams.
The TSG will only detonate when striking hard surfaces. This is demonstrated in our online videos (see our Facebook page Airtac UK)
Hence it is not suitable for use on grass or woodland terrain
The TSG can also be rolled against a hard surface to achieve detonation.
There is some learning curve to the amount of required force. It is modest, but must be figured out by the user :)
Please don’t throw these at animals (or peoples heads) Only to be used in an airsoft environment
