A method of modifying a projectile includes removing material from an aft end of the projectile, and coupling a device to the aft end. The method may be used to convert a spin-stabilized projectile into a fin stabilized projectile, by modifying the aft end of a spin-stabilized projectile to accept a fin kit. The modifying may involve removing material with lathe, and may include forming external threads on the aft end that may engage corresponding internal threads on the device, to effect the coupling of the device to the aft end. The modification method...
1. A method of modifying a projectile, the method comprising: removing material from an aft end of the projectile; andcoupling a device to the aft end of the projectile;wherein the projectile is initially a spin-stabilized projectile; andwherein the device is a tail fin kit, such that the step of coupling transforms the projectile into a fin-stabilized projectile. 2. The method of claim 1, wherein the tail fin kit includes a base, and fins hingedly coupled to the base. 3. The method of claim 1, further comprising, prior to the coupling, placing a slippin...
