Finally I got the chance to test my slingshot rifle in the garden on a nice distance with the bolts I made for it.


Sorry for the mad music, but there were a lot of people talking in the original video and that song is something a friend made for me for something else.

Hi there,

thanks for your nice comment! The sniper has a lot in common with the railshooters that Jörg did in the past. You can learn already a lot of that.

I don't think I should do a tutorial for this build, because there is still some room for improvements. The rail may look nice, but the accuracy isn't as high as for example the Marshmallow sniper. And the thera tubes are too thick probably.

Great job! Have you tried using pistol crossbow bolts? They are light and should work nicely. Just whack some heavier bands on it.

Great job again!

The rubber is too long! Use less rubber so that you stretch it out more. You will get much more power with less. You could probably even cut what you have in half and double it up for the most power.

Default Love it.

Just had a look. Keep it up. I think you will build up a lot of interest even if people don't comment. It's great.

@PhysicsPhren Yes, you are right. After all, I think I also need thinner tubes like Jörg does in his newest crossbows.

It was a fun project to build this thing, but I rather would start a new one. I learned a lot and I am even more impressed now when I look at Jörg's work.
